It's amazing how they know

Last night I was in bed with a migraine. It was a tough night; all night I was half awake, feeling unwell, with my head aching. The amazing thing was that one of my cats, Cali, stayed on my pillow the entire time and seemed to know what I was going through. Throughout the late-night hours I could feel her occasionally put her paw gently on my head, never with her claws out. She would keep it there for a minute and then withdraw it. It was as if she was just comforting me, or reaching out and making sure that I was all right. Cali often sleeps on my pillow, but she never reaches out her paw like that, throughout the night, and touches my head so softly.

Isn't it amazing how they know when you are sick?
