Staying calm in this crazy financial storm

This morning we came to work to find a delightful email from a long time and well loved customer, Cheryl W. It was about a blind old man who envisioned that all in his life was beautiful and well ordered. This gave him inner peace and the ability to keep going and thrive despite his blindness. He said that its a choice to be happy.

Certainly there are days, or cycles, where its darned hard to rise above our own sorrows, worries, grief, anger, and fears. But if we work at it every day, little by little, we can all master the art of letting the feelings of happiness flow through our bodies, hearts, and minds. We’ve got to. For ourselves. Our loved ones. For the survival of our species and planet.

And right now with the financial pickle we’re in its imperative to remain calm, sane, and rational. Its absolutely mind blowing how every time we are out in the world in The Cat Faerie Mobile (a blue 2006 Prius) driving the speed limit that some miserable being in a ridiculously huge truck or SUV hits the accelerator to whip around us in a blaze of screeching tires and false machismo. We chuckle “well, there went $4 in gas.”

Be seriously, slow down. Conserve resources both outer (gas, electricity, your worldly goods, and so on). Conserve inner resources. Its the inner resources of steady nerves, a sharp thinking mind, the benefits of 8 hours sleep, the benefits of drinking several quarts of alkalized water every day, eating only healthful and vital food that serve us. Especially in these seriously difficult times.

Because we want to be a part of solution soon we will be sending out a newsletter with our latest promo. We are still working on the details but it was involve another of our famous “gift with purchase.” The gift will be A Ball of Twine . . . calming music for your cat. Guess what? Yes, it’s going to calm your cat, and it will calm YOU too!

Staying calm allows you to think clearly and to make logical, prudent, and compassionate decisions for every aspect of your life.

Thank you Cheryl W. for giving us the inspiration for this blog posting. Yes, staying calm and happy is definately a choice. Just like it’s a choice to barrel through life with rage, anger, hatred, fear, and with a soggy mind that’s making very foolish decisions. Happiness is your birthright – cultivate it and feel it, and spread it around.

Feliway – benefits eldery cats

“Age 17 seems like a magic age when many cats suddenly lose their hearing,” says Anne-Marie Benfatto, DVM of San Francisco’s premiere cat hospital, Especially Cats.

The cats who live at Cat Faeries are known as “the little old ladies” and we’d say that what Dr Benfatto is telling us is very true. Sadly, Betty (age 17.5) and Tasha (age 17 or 18) have both completely lost their hearing in the past year.

Their deafness has been very upsetting to us. They never get to hear us tell them how beautiful they are, how much we love them, all those little sweet sayings which we lavish upon them, are no longer heard. Spookie at age 20 still hears most pitches and tones, but she’s hearing less and less as time goes on. Torti at 14 still hears it all, in particular, the dinner bell!

The sense that never seems to go away, and in fact can get stronger and more sensitive, is the sense of smell. Because the Feliway pheromone works with a cat’s sense of smell to send the message “I don’t pee here” we know that the calming message that it sends is more important than ever to an aging cat.

Feliway is known to have a calming effect on most cats which is partly why it’s so successful for getting cats to stop peeing on naughty surfaces. So, even if your cats are purrfect litter box users you will want the scent of Feliway in your home simply for it’s calming benefits for cats of all ages, in particular older cats with hearing loss or who are deaf.

Place a Comfort Zone with Feliway diffuser in the rooms where geriatric cats spend their time snoozing. The smell of Feliway will be very assuring to a cat who can’t hear well. Or use the spray form and apply it to cat beds and perches. The smell of Feliway will provide pleasure to your cats.

Its been scientifically proven that calm beings live longer and healthier lives. And for our aging kitties, that means fewer vet bills and stress put on the human family members.

More wonderful reasons why Cat Faeries loves Feliway! Spread the joy with Feliway!
