so yesterday i went to visit my client...the one that is not doing too well. We talked about relationships, his love for music, his best friend, his family and his pets. He has a cute little doggie (luther) and a huuuge cat (daisy). it's so funny to see them together actually. so anyway, he was telling me that daisy has probably sensed that he is getting sicker because she comes up to him at night and cuddles with him. He tells me "people don't understand that pets have feelings too and they sense when their owners are sick or in some type of trouble". I totally agree with him!! i went on to telling him about Annie, one of the many dogs i dogsit. Last year when i was dogsitting annie there was a rapist on the loose. i normally don't get paranoid when i hear about these things. I mean i'm ALWAYS cautious to begin with so when i hear these things i get little more cautious but not to the point where i go out to buy some sort of weapon. anway, this particular time though i did get really scared because a young girl had gotten raped three blocks away from where i was dogsitting/housesitting. i got so paranoid that as soon i walked in the house i would check EVERY room there was!!! i would make sure that no one was behind the shower curtain, i got pretty paranoid. i mean three freakin' blocks away!! come on, who wouldn't be scared?!? i guess annie sensed me being paranoid because at night she would sleep by the door. She ALWAYS sleeps with me on the bed, ALWAYS but these particular nights she was sleeping by the door the entire night and would not move until it was time for her walk. i felt to safe with her there. the rapist eventually got caught, he's probably out on the street again though by now!!! they should all get their penises cut off!!! anyway, let me stop because this is supposed to be sweet post dedicated to our loving pets.
this next one is about kachito...you know this one was coming. So on tuesday after work some of my friends called to see if i wanted to go out to dinner. I was really not in the mood, i just wanted to go home and lay down on the couch and cry myself to sleep again. I decided to go though because crying myself to sleep again, well that's just pathetic. so anyway, after dinner i went home and i started to feel depressed again. i turned on the t.v., got my blanket and layed down on the couch. i wanted to cry so bad but i kept telling myself "sonrisa don't be stupid and just get over it!!" after a few minutes of laying down on the couch, kachis come over, gets underneath the blanket with me, stretches out and then gets comfortable on my stomach and rests his head on my chest. At that point i lost it!!! i started crying!! that's exactly what i needed. A HUG!!! i hugged kachito but carefully because he just seemed to be really comfortable. we fell asleep on the couch and later went to bed. i love kachito!!! how do our pets know!?!?!?!? how do they know what we need and when we need it!?!?!?
