My reaction when I notice a possibly-serious symptom in my cat:
"ZOMG Lut my cat is dying we have to get her to the vet NOW!!!!!!!!!1!!!11" *cat is taken to vet in under an hour*
My reaction when I notice the exact same symptom in myself:
"Huh. Well, it's probably nothing."
*six weeks later*
"This is still happening. I should probably call my doctor."
*two weeks later, finally calls doctor*
There are reasons for this beyond "I hate making appointments", but the moral is still that I should probably take at least as good care of myself as I do my pets. -.-
