I believe cats have a sixth sense.
My cat Marco Polo (Premier, Red Pursian), used to be my alarm
clock before I retired from and insurance company three years ago.
I would set my alarm clock for 5 a.m.. Before the alarm clock
went off, Marco would be on my bed, meowing until I woke up, and I
would thank him.
I told him and my other beloved cat, Subahdar (Premier, Seal
Point Himalayan), that I was retiring to take care of them in their
old age. Subahdar passed away at sixteen in February of 2005.
Marco just recently in June 2006, at eighteen. They were just
nine days apart in age. Marco being the oldest.
It turned out to be the other way around! I am a diabetic, and
sometime my blood sugars become very low. Marco knew when this
occurred. He would jump up on the chair I would be sleeping in
