It's June Bug! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . No, it's February Bug (2007)
I found this bug snuggled down in a chair at the Trisun Nursing Home living room in Corpus Christi, Texas. It looks soft and furry enough to pet!
It is a strange looking bug, maybe it's a rodent?
If I found this bug in my house, I would pet it. Surely it wouldn't bite.
It was Ghost! I found her here, in the snack room, getting ready for a nice little visit. And maybe a snack.
There is more to this cat 'tale.'
Most of the time Ghost stays in the administrative area or up front in the living room. When she strays into the bedroom wings she bears watching.
Often she will go into a room of a very sick resident and climb up on the person's bed. She will snuggle up to the resident as if to comfort that person.
Very often that resident will die soon afterwards while Ghost is still there. Somehow she can tell that the person is about to die and just wants to be there in case, as if she knows she might be needed.
One person she comforted had an unexpected heart attack and died. Somehow she knew beforehand.
I wasn't told how she got her name but I have a few guesses.
Both Ghost and Tiger, a Manx cat, were taken in as strays that came to the nursing home to hang around.
