This morning I woke up not feeling the best, so after Jason left for work I crawled back into bed. As soon as I was under the sheets Leo had appeared and positioned himself as close to my face as possible.
I started to scratch behind his ears and the deep purring began. This soothing sound continued as he moved his head showing me where he wanted me to scratch. His purr became louder as he repositioned himself. He was now resting his head on my arm.
Before I knew it, Leo’s calming deep purrs sang me right to sleep. When I woke and looked at the clock an hour had passed and Leo was still in the same spot.
I love how animals can sense when something is wrong. Our kitty stayed beside me until I was feeling better this morning. It was an incredible feeling to have his warmth on me as he took a nap with me.
Leo is definitely a wonderful companion. He has captured a piece of my heart.
