They may be just picking up on my new found relief? But it is definitely something.

1. Honestly, I really think we smell different to animals when we are happier and more relieved.
Maybe our hormones change or something. A scientist could do a study on this...

2. Interesting concept
Smell better to the animals?

There is no doubt that our animals somehow sense our vibrations. But maybe all it is that we do smell better?

5. I would guess that we emit anxiety pheromones that they respond to.
I am not emitting any anxiety vibes of any sort today, for the first time in many (8) years.

6. I know I feel a bit lighter this morning
as though a heavy weight had been lifted off my shoulders. The sun seems a bit brighter and I've got a little ambition for the first time in ages.

My little old lady cat did seem to rest a little better last night.

8. My cat purred me to sleep last night with renewed vigor
He has always done it but last light the whole bed was shaking.

7. Really, my dogs seemed disturbed...
Maybe because I went from crying and jumping up and down and laughing.... to yelling at the TV for that asshole to get in his fucking helicopter and get the fuck out of my hometown. I stayed GLUED to the TV till I saw him get in the plane and take off.
