Have your cats ever healed you?

I ask because I always thought the healing capabilities of cats were just a legend and that people imagined it, but a while ago I was in bed with a strong ear-ache, when Princess Gatita started swatting me to scratch her cheeks as she usually does when I go lie in bed. I apologized and told her I was in a lot of pain from my ear, and she immediately put her arm on my head, strongly, totally uncharacteristic of her, and bit me on the temple under the hairline (she never bites me!). I raised my head to yell at her and realized, to my astonishment, that my ear didn't ache anymore! Princess the acupuncturist...

She had made my back pain much better once, years ago, when I told her how much it hurt and she immediately lay with her back to mine where it hurt, but I had dismissed it as a coincidence.

The Royal von Meouw Dynasty: His Royal Highness the late Prince von Meouw,
Her Royal Highness Princess Gatita von Meouw, Nikita Duchess of Meouw and
His Highness Cuchi-Cuchi, next in line for the throne of Prince von Meouw.

Not quite like that, but having my cats just get on my lap or next to me when I lay down does wonders for my mood. Petting them and hearing them purr make me a
Ways feel better. Recently I herniated a disk in my back and between my kitties and socializing kittens at the shelter have made me tolerate pain a lot better.

Whenever I have cramps and am lying on the couch feeling sorry for myself Muffin comes and lies down right on my belly and purrs very deep vibrating purrs. Between that vibration and a warm kitty it's way better than a heating pad!

Since that is literally the ONLY time he lies on my tummy. It's also the only time he uses that particular deep strong purr, the rest of the time his purrs are much louder and higher in frequency....he must know something's going on.

I once had a black cat named Big Boy, and I had a sprained ankle once, and his instincts told me I was hurting, and he jumped on the top of my leg that hurt, and he purred really loud, and I thought it was so sweet of him to do that.

Zoe will soemtimes lay on my back right where PMS cramps strike, or my stomach on the same area. And she just purrs her little head off.
