    Look at those eyes of Pudding's - they say, "You didn't find me. I found you."

    YAY Pudding! I am convinced that pets (cats and dogs both) sense and help us, and bring so much to our lives...in this case (and many others), saving it.

    Best-

    First post I read today-puts me in a good mood. What a wonderful story. Once, when a chemo treatment was very difficult for me, our cat, Phoenix, stayed by my side for two days-he just stayed there, only leaving for food and bathroom breaks. At one point, when it was really rough and I had back pain, I rolled on my stomach, and he laid on my back, where the pain was really bad. He also laid on the back of my knees. I just couldn't believe it. Animals can be so caring, and in Pudding's case, downright lifesaving. Love to hear these stories.

    Not only is the name 'Pudding' great, but also that of his sidekick - Wimsy.

    I'm sure the cat meant well and the end result was great. But as a rule, I don't think we want a 21-pound anything sitting on the chest of somebody who is having a seizure.

    All concerned were lucky here, IMO.

    I perceive Dr. Pudding's ocean to have been in motion here, so to speak, pawing eyelids, nipping earlobes, that sort of thing, so his weight wasn't squarely sat on, say, a left lung.

    (His cohort Wimsy, of course, having taken second watch, was downstairs in a recliner, smoking cigs and watching HBO.)

    What, helplessly addicted to anthropomorphizing four-legged things? Me?

    I LOVE these stories!!!! Animals are so amazing. Our Yorkie has to sleep in a dog bed on the floor. She use to sleep in our bed but when my husband would snore she would walk all over him. I would wake up to see her standing on my husbands hip like a billy goat on a tractor..lol! I always wonder what's going through her head..she obviously thinks something is wrong with him!

    I am so happy to hear your story about your Phoenix...and I hope for your continued health.

    My cat Cookie...she lays on my back...she just walks up my body and nestles in, and then sometimes purrs in my ear. She is a healer...I totally believe that animals are empathetic. They feel our pain and comfort us, heal us....

    I am not surprised to read this story. I have three cats. Two years ago I had a severe bout of the flu. I spent days on end in bed, with all three cats were there with me. As any cat lover know, cats are habitual, and usually have routines. My three have certain spots in the home, and certain times when they are in those spots, etc. All three of them abandoned their routines to stay by my side. Except for litter box, and food breaks, they remained on the bed with me until I started to spend more time upright. Cats are more loyal than thought, and are amazing creatures all around!
