I have to share this very sweet story. Some of you may have read about my kitty, Marcellus, who is now 9 months....he's one of the the morning biters. Yes, he is still biting, must be the feral mother thing, I'm sure of it. Anyway, sensitive and cautious type, you never quite know his mood type, the type who may let you touch him one moment and do the quick switcheroo. He is getting better though as long as you totally respect him. Anyway, there truly is something special about this guy. Last night I was rather upset, personal thing, and I was very, very sad. My dear, sweet Marcellus must have known. After last night, I really think cats know. He came up on the bed once I got in. He lay beside me and purred and purred and snuggled, rolled, and rubbed his head all over my face for about twenty minutes and then the sweet thing gently put his paw and my face and fell asleep, purring and trilling. I really, really think he was trying to comfort me. He's fairly sweet in the morning but he just wants to eat and he never has laid right by me like nor put that tender paw on my face like he did last night. It was so sweet, I will never forget that moment. I have a dog and he didn't even notice. :-) My other kitty just did his usual but my sweet Marcellus came to comfort me. And the thing was, I wasn't crying or anything, just sad and amazingly, he sensed this. So I have new love for this sweet kitty. Although he is a puzzle sometimes I know now that he has a very tender kitty heart.
