Mom has a cold, and feels crappy. She sounds funny when she talks, and makes the most ickky sound when she puts those tissues up against her nose. She sounds like she's hacking up a hairball.
I've really had to put my paw down and INSIST she sit in one place long enough to give me scritches. That calms her down and helps her feel better.
Mom loves the Olympics, so I know she'll be sitting in one place a lot over the next few days while she watches them on TV. I will make sure she rests and gets better.
