I just had the weirdest thing happen!! Smudge crawled on my lap purring and wanting attention. He had a little dirty spot on the right side of his nose. I started to rub it out by wetting my finger and stroking him pretty firmly on that spot to clean his face.
As I did that, my sinus, on the same side that I wiped Smudge, popped open. I did not even know it was plugged. I am thinking that our relationships with our pets are even more symbiotic than we even realize.
From what I just experienced, it seems like a real good idea to give our pets the BEST of everything as a means of giving to ourselves,
