Challenge: Using prose or poetry, write something (fiction, nonfiction, or essay) about extrasensory perception.
My mom's cat Cuddles(no longer with us) ever since she was a tiny kitten slept with my mom almost constantly, she was a beautiful Maine Coon/Tabby mix, a beautiful medium haired ginger cat with pretty golden eyes.
She soon proved even as a tiny 5 week old that she was a blessing to our family, she could somehow sense when mom's glucose level was going up or down too much and would nip and squeak at mom during the night.
At first we weren't sure what to think about the alarming behavior Cuddles presented in the middle of the night or whenever mom was sleeping. She could also detect sleep apnea types of issues.
After talking with our allergist and a vet they suggested mom check her glucose every time Cuddles behaved in a strange manner and see what the results were, sure enough it was almost always because mom's glucose was going up or was too low. After that mom started watching what she ate and when a little closer and that took care of the problem for the most part, although if mom started snoring she would start nipping at mom's chin and squeaking and squawking again until she got mom's attention or was satisfied that all was well.
Cuddles had medical issues of her own, she had had a couple ear infections by the time she was 2, by the time she was 5 she had developed kidney & bladder issues, she was 9 when she died of a seizure disorder after using flea treatment from Wal-Mart on her thinking at the time that cheap was better than nothing.
We are still sad over the loss of Cuddles but are glad she's not suffering from bladder/kidney disease or from the seizures.
Since then Rascal my cat took to sleeping with mom and we've discovered she will do almost the same things that Cuddles did when mom's glucose wasn't where it should be or if mom was snoring too much or her breathing pattern was off a little.
