Can cats sense when your ill.

by Lin
(London)

I have two younge Siamese cats and I had an operation last week. Since my husband brought me home from hoapital my two cats have followed me everywhere I go. One of the cats is a real daddys girl and is always following my husband but now she just won't leave my side. They both sleep in the bed right up next to me. If I get up to go to the bathroom they follow me. if I stand up they both jump up too. Even when the nurse come up to check me they are trying to get in the room. My husband has to try and keep them out while she checks me. He has tried teats playing but he just can't keep them away.


They were not this clingy before my operation so I just wondered if the can sense I am not well.

Oh by the way they both seem to be very intrested in the nurse 'smelling her bag ect'I think it's the antiseptic smell it seems to drive them mad a bit like cat nip.

Has anyone else had this with their cat when they are unwell.

If humans were "Perfect", which none of us will ever be, they would be Siamese Cats !

My Siamese helped me after my Knee surgery NEW
by: Anonymous

Our family Siamese, Sam, kept me company after my recent knee surgery. He normally prefers the other males in the house, so I was surprised how much time he was spending with me - he slept with me, got up with me when I had to hobble to the bathroom. We really bonded during that experience and he was a great comfort to me.

Cats sense when you are ill NEW
by: Beatrice

Hi there,

I remember many years ago when my mother was dying of cancer and our Siamese cat, Coco, stayed with her all the time on her bed. My mother couldn't bear anybody being near her at the time, even us kids, but Coco was allowed all kinds of privileges, including bringing in various trophies to her, hoping that she would recover with the odd mouse or bird, laid lovingly beside her on the pillow. She said that she got such pain relief from stroking Coco. Coco would let herself into the room and out again, without a sound and steal around the place like a feather without disturbing my mother.
Siamese cats are very special.

Rosalena and Marchella NEW
by: Anonymous

How lucky for Rosalena and Marchella that after such a hard start to life they found a home with you. I can't understand how people can be so unkind and hurt an amimal. Cats are so loyal and loving. I have had cats all my life but Packer and Crixus are my first Siamese cats. There really is something very special about Siamese cats. I have never met a cat like them.
I hope your back is all better now. Your babies were lucky to find someone to love them so much. It sounds like they loved you very much. Bless them.

My cats saved my life a zillion times. NEW
by: angelina diantonio

My two cats who were rescues had a really bad experience before they came to live with me. They were very fearful from all the abuse they endured. I hurt my back and was in a chair for 10 months. The pain was unbearable. I used to sit and cry for hours. Those two wonderful cats never left my side.Rosalena sat on my lap and Marchella sat right next to me with her paw on my lap.If I went to the bathroom they followed. They literally pulled me through my recovery. They gave me twelve wonderful years before they passed. I loved them so much and cherish every second I had with them. They were my babies and best friends and I miss them so.
