Apparently, our Deer hardly ever gets even a sniffle...but that has sure changed recently! A couple of other humans that mouse at the same place she does came down with this nasty little bug that our poor, little Deer caught. At first she coughed and coughed and coughed! She coughed so much she couldn't hardly sleep, even though we thought we'd make her feel better by sleeping on her feet. Then, after a good week of that and just when she thought she was getting all better....WHAMMO! Stage 2 - a nasty sore throat - hit her hard on Friday!
Poor, little Deer...she was so sad and she kept on telling Macks how sick she was of being sick! She's was much better yesterday and even better today...thanks to Macks and us...well, mainly us, we think! It brought Deer nearly to tears on Friday night at 2:00 am when Macks - without even a moment's hesitation - found the nearest 24 hour drugstore to get her some sore throat medicine. She told us on Saturday how wonderfully thoughtful, sweet, caring, unselfish, blah blah blah he is to her. Whatever! Hey, what about us? We cuddle with you and we think that is what finally made you all better!
The powers of Feline TLC are vastly under appreciated and demand further attention by the established medical community. In the meantime, we'll do our best to keep Deer on the road to recovery by putting aside our sassiness for a few more days and being extra nice to her, too. Macks isn't the only one who can be a sweetie-pie!
