Can cats sense when your ill.
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.
