I just thought of this the other day. The week before my dog, Louie died, I was at my sisters house. She has a cat Sparkles and she is a, to her self cat. She does not like little kids and she only wants you when she needs you type cat kind of a B_**_ (fill in the blanks). So on this particular day she was climbing on the computer desk and she came up behind me as I sat and she put her paw on my shoulder. My sister was in the room and she could not believe what Sparkles was doing. She than climbed down my shoulder to my abdomen area and curled up and fell asleep. I was floored I though she was dying or something, I asked my sister “is your cat alright? Why is she doing this”. My sister was just amazed. She had no idea but was just as weirded out as anyone because she does not do this type of stuff at all not even with her or her daughter or anyone. I let her sit and sleep for ½ hr- 45 min than I needed to move.
Louie and Sparkles were around one another, Sparkles could not stand Louie. Louie never paid her any mind, honestly I don’t know if he even seen her ½ the time bc of his hair. She would hiss at him that was the most of it.
After Louie died I went there and when I walked past her (Sparkles) she tried to maul me. I was like “Dang Sparkles what’s your deal”. I never put 2 & 2 together. Every time I go over there she will NOT come by me and I think it is because Louie is w/ me. Back to the beginning though, do you think Sparkles sensed or knew that Louie was going to die and that is why she crept up on me and fell asleep on me? A warning or a I feel sorry for you type thing? I have been wondering about that and was just wondering what others thought. Let me know what you think please.
