If you own a pet, you already know that your furry pals are the best medicine for making you feel better when you’re feeling bad or unwell. They may even be able to tell you which medicines or therapies are best for you – in Deb Clay’s case, it was some cuddling.
Deb Clay is an animal enthusiast who has spent the last several years volunteering at veterinary clinics and rescuing animals in need. Mojo, Faith, Ossie, Holley, and Timmy are the five rescue cats she and her husband are presently caring for.
Despite the couple’s best efforts to locate their new forever homes, they understood that no cat wanted to leave their home. They all adore their parents and make every effort to show it whenever they can.
Clay needed time to rest and recover at home after undergoing knee replacement surgery a few weeks earlier.
She couldn’t move around much, so she spent most of her time in bed. There was something wrong with their beloved mom, and all five cats immediately realized it.
Cats don’t usually want to cuddle with their mother at the same time. When they saw she was sick, though, they felt they had to help her. They all cuddled up to her, attempting to console her and make her feel better.
“I was resting with them all around me.” “I was quite fatigued, and it was rare for all of them to be with me,” Clay explained, “since there is some cat politics between a couple.” “However, being around them made me feel really relaxed.”
Clay is quite grateful for her small animals, who make her feel loved and joyful all of the time.
