Is your cat stress free?

The newest addition to our family is Boo, the kitten. He's six months old. His eye has been messed up. I am assuming from a scratch he got wrestling with the other cats. All fun and games till someone loses an eye. Well he didn't lose it but it became inflamed and looks pretty bad. So I took him to the Vet. Well in the end it turns out he has feline herpes. Yep, feline herpes. who know? But here's what struck me funny. The vet said to make sure Boo, the kitten isn't stressed. It may prolong the healing of the irritation around his eye and the sore on his lips and in his mouth. Of course to limited the stress in the future as well because stress could cause another outbreak. The vet is telling me this and it takes everything in me not to laugh. I bit my lower lip and nodded my head. I could not speak, not even to ask a question because I knew once I opened my mouth I would of gotten a serious case of the giggles.

I am sorry what is a cat's life if not stress free. Boo is fed twice a day. Whenever Boo requires attention he just stands by someone and he is picked up and cuddled, guaranteed  You walk in the house, you don't get three feet in to the door and Boo comes running and lays down at your feet expecting and getting a nice pet.  He runs around and plays throughout the house. He has two other cat playmates always on call. If he gets tire suddenly, he will just plop down where he stands and takes a nap. Or he finds the closest human and treats them like his personal bed. His day consists of eating , playing, sleeping, and grooming himself over and over again. Boo, the kitten hasn't had a stressful day sine he was brought into my house and became an indoor cat. My life should be so lucky and care free.

Have to go now, it's time for Boo's aroma therapy and paw massage.
