My boys are awesome!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Last month, after much prayer, consulting with family and friends, and many tears, I ended my 3-year long relationship. I do miss him, but I feel more at peace and more empowered now.

But enough about me . . . Oliver and Rocky have been incredibly attentive since the breakup. They've been very cuddly and affectionate, and were especially so in the first couple weeks when I was fighting the urge to call the ex. The minute I get home (from work or wherever) they greet me at the door, no matter what time it is. If I go to the bathroom first, they follow me there. If I sit down, they head directly for my lap; I've taken to calling them "The Orange Swarm". Anywhere I go in my apartment, they follow me.

Not only that, Oliver hasn't had a cystitis flare-up and Rocky's allergies have gotten much better. I wonder if they were reacting to my stress.

They've been an important part of my healing in other aspects of my life, and now is no exception.

I do believe animals are very sensitive to our feelings, they do feel stress when we are stressed, and I also believe that stress is related to different physical problems. It really wouldn't surprise me that the cystitis flare-ups and the allegies are linked with stress. You have two very faithful and loving boys there. Good luck.

It's so great to hear your cats help you and comfort you. I believe animals feel when their owners are in a bad mood, or when something is wrong, and even react to it physically. They have such a pure soul!!!

Any way, I hope you are better.
