The old King was still bed-ridden with pneumonia. While it didn’t seem to be getting better, neither did it appear to be getting worse. With Princess Pirouette, Tata Sous-sus and la duchesse du Linge in attendance at the sickbed, His Majesty was under constant supervision. It was Tata Sous-sus who made a liniment by crushing the leaves of various plants such as cedarleaf and nutmeg. With a few drops of turpentine to seal the deal, she rubbed the concoction onto His Majesty’s chest.
“It was my own mother who taught me how to make it,” said Tata Sous-sus to Pirouette. “She called it ‘country comfort.‘ It works like a charm when a fever settles into the chest.”

Thank you very much! 😃
Beautiful cats. I you turning all the story snippets into a book of some kind?
I’m thinking perhaps a graphic novel. If not, then maybe a collection of short stories. A full-blown novel… I don’t see it happening. 😺
a graphic novel would be fun. Short stories would work well too. Good luck whichever way you go, Russell.
Awww! That is so cuuuute! ❤
So sweet Russell. Thanks for joining in 🙂 🙂
