Cat Therapy

Another day, another sinus headache. I woke up today much like I did Saturday. My head was pounding, I felt nauseous and HOT. I tried to stay in bed as long as I could. My theory was that if I was asleep, I wouldn't feel the pain. Trouble was I couldn't sleep anymore. I woke up around 5:30am and tossed and turned for the next 3 and a half hours. Finally at 9ish I dragged my sock monkey jammies out of bed and headed down stairs to face the day.

The cats were waiting impatiently for their breakfast and it took everything I had to stand up, pour kibbel, and make coffee. I can't tell you how LOUD that coffee grinder was. Ug.

So, as the coffee brewed, LA-B made his way downstairs to greet my grumpiness. He asked what he could do and I said "pet my head." In theory, it was a cure-all, but, in reality, it was more of an annoyance than anything. No, that would not be my miracle drug. Instead, I turned to the other end of the couch, threw a pillow over my head and blocked the world out. The next thing I remember was waking up to a strange rumbling on the back of my leg. No, I hadn't caught my sister's lower GI problem. The rumbling was the purring of my little Dynamite. He had crawled into the crook of my legs and purred my headache away.

YAY.

Ohhhhh, you poor thing! Try this remedy...get some Tiger Balm and put a little bit on your forehead. It sounds crazy, but it seems to work. Plus, you'll smell and people will avoid you -- which is just what you want when you have a headache! Ta daaaaaa, you've been cured.
