Blog Interruption

This blog has been interrupted by sick humans.

So Dad is still not feeling his best, but your thoughts and purrs are helping so we can still use them over here, if you have any to spare. Mom was so focused on taking care of Dad, and yours truly, that she forgot to take care of herself. The little tickle in the back of her throat on Thursday night turned into a full-blown cold/flu by Friday afternoon.

Apparently humans don't understand the first rule of caretaking... the caretaker has to take care of themselves too. Cats understand this with very little fanfare. Nap whenever you can, in case you're needed later. Eat whenever you can, you never know when you'll need your energy stores high. When your bed is filled with sick humans, keep your distance and mew encouragement from the hallway. When they request your healing presence, make sure they've recently been sanitized for your protection.

So Nurse Fin is on the case. Restoring health and waking humans. It's a tough job, but, as always, I'm up to the task. We should be back to regular blog business in no time.
