Sickies Sticking Around

Hey pals, Leo here! I's reportin' on the sickies in our house. They refuse to leave! Mommy and daddy are both down with the Awfuls. Who has to nurse them, you may ask? Well lemme tell ya, the bulk of it is fallin' to ME! That's right Leo the Nurse is on duty! For the most part..

Here's the deal. Glitter won't have nothin' to do with anyone sneezin' or coughin' or shiverin' under blankeys. She tries, bless her heart (if you're southern, you know what that means!) She will crawl up on mom for a snuggle, but one sneeze or cough and you never saw anyone move so fast! She leaves claw marks on the patients! Not cool, Glitzy, not cool at all.

Cashmere tries a little bit too, but she gets offended by all the movement that comes with the coughin' and sneezin' and so forth so she takes off too. Not as clawfully as Glitter does, thankfully. She will tuck up close to daddy to keep him warm, as long as his snores aren't louder than her own.

So that leaves me to care for the mom. I'll put up with more of the bouncin' from the coughin' and sneezin' then the sisters will, but even I have my limits! Besides, it's not like I'm super appreciated while performin' my duties anyway... "Leo, I already can't breath, get your furs outta my face please!" Well really, hrrmph! Fine, I spend a lot of my nursing time leaning on her ankles, and that better be good enough because I leave her entirely like the girls do if she doesn't watch it, right?

Seriously though, if you don't see us much, this is why. Daddy might go back to work tomorrow, and maybe after that mom (who got sick a day after daddy) will start feeling somewhat better too.

Thanks fer yer patience!

Nobody here was very good at human nursing... until I came along! My human rarely gets sick, so I'm not called on to work very often, but I'm prepared!
