I have noticed that some bloggers have a schedule. They post on prescribed topics for each day. I am not that organized so I just "wing it" and try to go with whatever pops into my head. Some days, there is nothing in my head.
So, here I sit with my little buddy, Sunny, at my feet. Sunny (looking peaceful above) has a thing about thunder and fireworks. He can hear it miles away. Despite the fact that there is not a cloud in the sky today and the 4th of July is several weeks away, he's skulking around with his head down like he's threatened.
I have come to the conclusion that Sunny gets migraine headaches.
Of my four cats, Sunny is the biggest eater and has the girth to show for it. Naturally, he is the one most likely to wake me in the morning to get up and open a can of catfood. I always divide it into bowls and set three down on the kitchen floor. Gracie and Tweedy will eat a little and then leave. (Snuffy, the oldest, sleeps in and comes later.) Sunny gobbles up his food and then cleans up the "girls" dishes. They also have dry food to nosh on the rest of the day.
However, when Sunny has a headache, he doesn't come for breakfast. When he gets finally gets up, he moves around slowly, head down with his eyelids puffy and half-closed. He tries to stay away from any bright light or noise and holes-up for the day. Fortunately, he doesn't suffer them very often or for more than a day.
I haven't spoken to the vet about it (she'll probably think I'm far too anthropomorphic) but I've had enough headaches to empathize. What would she give him for a headache anyway?
