Cat Parents are getting smarter every day with Cat Faeries help!

We have some exciting solutions to climate change to tell you about. Farm lands with grazing animals is being lauded as THE SOLUTION. And even backyard gardeners, like us, can do it too with compost!

Here you can learn about “regenerative farming” or “regenerative ranching” and even “regenerative gardening in small spaces” which could very well halt and reverse climate catastrophe this short and eloquent TED Talk given by a 4th generation farmer who is also a friend and colleague of the ranch we get our own meat which will motivate you and make you feel hopeful. You’ll become another consumer who demands only foods grown or raised in a regenerative manner.

Something anyone with a garden, farm, or even has a nearby empty lot can do! Dump compost on it! It draws down C02 from the atmosphere and creates carbon rich soil which plants love! We share this video because it gives us hope. Each and every one of us can be WE that will save this planet while THEY don’t care and won’t step up. Share this one far and wide! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z91QsZA1l_w

From a blogger Acadia Tucker: “I want to make regenerative gardening easy because cultivating even a little bit of carbon-rich soil can make a big difference. Eric Toensmeier estimates that his own tiny carbon-rich backyard garden, about a tenth of an acre, can offset the carbon emissions of one American adult per year. For me, that says one thing: let’s grow some good food. It’s time.” https://www.greenamerica.org/blog/author-and-farmer-acadia-tucker-answers-questions-about-climate-victory-gardening

Fix the climate, prevent cat food shortages, and take back the one only planet which has cats on it and be a hero that future generations will thank!
 
 
 

Newton’s Purrspective: Climate Change – We cannot pussyfoot around any longer!

Sir Isaac Newton is our Feline Editor At Large (just how large, he’s not saying) who writes very brainy and very well researched articles for us. Newton lives in the North East and is fond of storms, our catnip toys, a soft bed, sunbeams, and naps. He has an ongoing email flirtation with our Daphne. This is his current, and as always, very well done article.


If you are a cat who lives indoors you have probably not considered how climate change could affect you. On those days when it is too hot or rainy to relax in a CATtio you can retreat to a cozy climate-controlled environment provided by your humans. That is all well and good, but I have something important to say. I know it is difficult, but we cats must start thinking outside our cardboard boxes! It is high time we speak out about important life-threatening environmental concerns. For example, have you considered how climate change is affecting catnip in its natural environment? Ah ha! I see I’ve gotten your attention!

Cat Faeries Catnip is ethically wildcrafted by our beloved Cat Toy Elves. This means they find it growing in open wild spaces and harvest it in a sustainable manner where some plants are left to go to seed to ensure a healthy new crop the next year.

Recently we asked the Cat Toy Elves if they had noticed any changes in the wild catnip crops over the past few years. I am sad to say the news was disheartening, to say the least. They saw two major problems: 1) destruction of open space to build silly things like condos and 2) extreme weather changes causing conditions that make it difficult for Catnip to grow.

Remember, this is Wild Catnip. It occurs naturally and does not rely on fertilizer, irrigation or the controlled environment of a greenhouse. Unusually heavy winter rains may rot the seeds, or simply wash them into areas where they cannot germinate and grow. Searing heat and drought in summer burn up the leaves, buds and stems giving us less to harvest, and eventually killing the plants. Of course, we all know dead plants produce no seeds. The Elves fear a Wild Catnip shortage as early as late spring 2019!

Getting your humans to recycle and walk to work or for errands is a start. But scientists say this is simply not enough. Our poor abused planet cannot take much more – in fact they are giving us and it 12 years before things get irreversibly and life threateningly worse. Cats may have nine lives, but our planet does not! Perhaps you haven’t noticed, but sea levels are already rising. Do you read the news? The recent severe rain and drought events have been tied to climate change.

What can be done? People need to do their part by driving less and refusing to eat processed food and factory farmed meats. Organic food may cost a little more, but it tastes better and is much healthier! Refuse to buy products from China – consider the massive amount of fossil fuel it takes to ship them here as well as the atrocious labor and environmental policies of that country. Have you ever looked at photos of the air pollution in Beijing? That foul toxic air doesn’t just stay there – it blows all over the globe.

I have never been in a big box store, but people tell me they are filled with very strange smells that would certainly irritate a cat’s delicate nostrils. These smells are the result of toxic chemicals impregnated in clothing and all soft goods (e.g. sheets and towels). These chemicals not only pollute our air, but also our water supply when these goods are washed.

PLASTIC – use of that stuff must be halted, in particular “single use plastic.” Experts say soon there will be more plastic in the oceans than there are fish! Fish and other sea life are eating plastic or getting tangled up in it, and it’s killing them. (You may have seen some of the horrific examples online.)

National Geographic tells us that micro plastics are being found in human feces! One way plastic enters their bodies is from swallowing the contents in plastic water bottles! Tell your people that they can easily fill washable glass or copper bottles with their own filtered water. Read about plastic and people-poop here: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/environment/2018/10/news-plastics-microplastics-human-feces/

Most important: Get Your Humans To VOTE. Make sure they refuse to vote for anyone who is not actively trying to reverse climate change and/or endorse renewable energy. No exceptions.

Click on this link then forward it to 50 human friends and acquaintances. Knowledge is power and I know that your people are caring and will pounce into action. Your catnip depends upon it!

Does your cat stand on the rim of the litter box?

Cat Faeries customer, Judith from Hawaii wrote:

Aloha Auntie,

My little girl Mele, sometimes poops outside the litter box. I saw her once balancing on the edge of the box. The little turds are right outside the box.

Auntie Cat Faerie replies: I’ve spent a lot of time wondering why cats sometimes balance on the edge of the box. I think that the change in her position is to help make the poop come out easier especially if the cat is slightly constipated – which can happen to any of us! This is yet another reason to not put a hood on the litter box. Cats need to find the best position for themselves whether they are peeing or pooping and they can change that position from time to time.

If you keep towels or something similar alongside the box they’ll catch the poop making clean up really easy for you. You can also spray Convivial House Cat and I Love My Litter Box Flower Essence around the litter box area if you think she’s developing some kind of aversion to her box.

If you think she gets a bit backed up down there add a spoonful of canned pumpkin to her cat food. You can usually find organic pumpkin pie in cans year-round but this time of year it will be on the bottom shelf in the canned foods area. Cats like pumpkin – I once found a cat standing in the middle of a pumpkin pie blissfully licking her mouth clean!

 
 

How a crystal grid can correct your cat’s behavior!

Our offering of Healer’s Crystals is an assortment of 8 different crystals which you can use to correct your cat’s behavior as well as work on yourself and others. In this selection you’ll receive one Amethyst carved cat, one Amethyst cat face, one Larimar heart along with an assortment of several of each of the other 5 crystals. We weigh out 100 grams which is the weight of the crystals pictured here and on our website. We thought we’d tell you about a few of them.

Larimar, carved as a heart ~ An emotional cleanser for calming, cooling, and soothing to the emotional body and mind. Activates clear but peaceful communication (sometimes called non-violent communication). Gives emotional strength & access to the divine feminine within. Release yourself from harmful inner bonds to others or to their principals which do not serve you. Promotes serenity and wisdom. Calms excessive fear and diffuses excessive anger. Lovely pale blue color evokes happiness and friendliness. Ideal for cats (and people) who are “testy” or cranky and prone to hissing and growling, and who are not getting along with others.

Amethyst ~ For protection, purification and Divine connection. It will assist one in releasing bad behaviors, indulgences or addictions. It holds the same vibration as the Violet Flame which one can call upon for protection from any sort of negativity. It can also purge painful and negative Karmic chords, illness and kinks in the DNA, cells and genes – we are seeing more and more books and articles discussing how we are not slaves to or bound to our genes and genetic traits. It’s exciting to know that Amethyst can help anyone, cat or human to be free of what was once thought to be fixed, predetermined and unchangeable. Amethyst creates the feeling of being a bubble of Light. Activate your higher mind your body’s own ability to purify, cleanse, release and regenerate. Ours are carved into the shape of a cat and a cat’s face.

Angel Aura ~ A product of modern technology when elements such as gold are permanently bonded to quartz which actually amplifies the quartz and takes it in new healing and beneficial directions. The pale and pastel shimmer reminds one of Angels or Angel wings while it evokes a bubble of peace, tranquility and contentment feelings which are vital for any sort of healing to any of the body’s systems. Deep awareness and connection to the Angelic realm for heightened purification, rest and repose. Angel Aura loves working with other crystals.

Aqua Aura ~ Works in great harmony with Larimar, Amethyst and Angel Aura. Aqua Aura is similar in the technology process and has benefits similar to Angel Aura with the addition of the ability to release negative energies from one’s energy field, to bring inner peace and safety and to release from stress. This alchemical stone strengthens the thymus gland for better immunity. It offers protection from parasites, psychic attack, psychological attack such a gas-lighting, and it can repel malevolent beings.

Making a Crystal Grid

A single crystal programmed with intention is great, but let’s elevate your crystal work to another level! If you create a crystal grid or a formation the stones they will work together and are stronger. With intention you set a goal and intensify the action of the crystals as well as program the crystals, so they know exactly how to be of benefit.


 
 

This photograph is one way to arrange your crystals. But you can get creative – this is YOUR grid! As you can see we arranged the same type of crystals together in a circle with the Amethyst cats and cat faces and Larimar heart in the center. Circles with something in the center is great and so is arranging them in a spiral. You can variegate the colors rather than keep like colors and crystal types together.

Notice that the points are facing inwards (except for one – oopsie!) If any of your crystals don’t have a defined point, that’s ok, face it in the direction that feels right.

  • Run the crystals under cold running water to clear them
  • As you are giving them their bath think about your intention which is what you might like the purpose of the grid to be, where you’ll set it up and how you might like it to look. Spiral or circle are two ways.
  • Dry them off
  • Continuing with thinking about your “Intention” know that it is what empowers your stones. It’s part of programming your crystals.
  • Write down (write by hand, don’t type) the words you wish to use for your intention. Always finish with “thank you.”
  • Hold the crystals in your hands as a group or if you have too many to hold at one time hold them in groups. Think of your intention which you’ll say aloud several times
  • Find a safe place, away from curious cats and kids, so it won’t be disturbed
  • Lay down your grid. Have one or more than one “master crystal” to be in the center then build from there. We recommend Amethyst or Amethyst and Larimar like pictured
  • Grids like to be in the presence of crystal clusters of any kind so if you have any place them nearby.
  • Grids also like bowls of sea salt, flowers, candles, incense, an orange or another piece of fruit, and an open bottle of an essential oil.
  • Once your grid is arranged admire its beauty and say words of thanks and gratitude.
  • As you pass the grid during the day sing to it, play music, and remind it and yourself of the intention.
  • How long will this grid be active? That’s up to you! It could be a few weeks, months or it could be permanent.
  • To use the same crystals for another grid with a different intention cleans them under cold running water. We recommend that after cleansing that you set them in the sun in a copper vessel during the hours of 9am and 11am to energize them. The heat of direct Noontime sun could cause cracking.
  • As you collect more crystals you can add to your grid. Yes, you can have more than one grid in your home each with its own intention/purpose.

Suggestions for phrases to correct your cat’s not so pleasant behaviors. We added the last two are for your consideration for people. Select one phrase or create your own. Swap out “my cat” with the name(s) of the cat or cats (or person). Be creative. Every cat or person is unique so tailor your words as it feels right.

  • My cat is calm and will no longer spray urine in the house, I ask that the crystals help, thank you.
  • My cat will no longer fight with the other cats, I ask that the crystals help, thank you.
  • My cat will no longer bully another cat, I ask that the crystals help, thank you.
  • My cat will be accepting of _____name____ and be kind towards ____name____, I ask that the crystals help, thank you.
  • My will enjoy using a litter box rather than the floor, I ask that the crystals help, thank you.
  • My cat’s cells will cleanse daily, that DNA will be strong for a disease-free body, I ask that the crystals help, thank you.
  • My child will realize that studying and reading are beneficial, I ask that the crystals help, thank you.
  • I am at peace so that my cells cleanse daily, that my DNA is strong and healthy, and that my telomeres are the ideal length, I ask that the crystals help, thank you.

Note! Is the word “telomeres” a new one for you? If it is, you are going to love reading this book: “The Telomere Effect” by Elizabeth Blackburn. Call your local bookstore and if they don’t have it they will order it. It’s life changing and gives you a whole new perspective about taking your health into your own hands – and into your daily thoughts and actions! It’s one of the most important books that you will ever read.
 
 
 

Correcting feline behaviors with beautiful objects to adorn your home

In addition to our wildly popular and successful energized waters – specifically our Convivial House Cat and our Flower Essence Formulas for Cats – the placement of the crystal Amethyst throughout your home has some surprising benefits for changes in behavior and in health. What we love is when something benefits cats and their people at the same time. This to us is a huge win-win and it’s what we are all about. We are advocates of great benefits, good health and good behavior, plus a lot of love and kindness for all! Gemstones and crystals have been used medicinally dating back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, and going further back to at least 25,000 years B.C. in India, China, and South America. Surely any ancient culture worked with the stones and crystals indigenous to their area. It’s not just the stone itself, but the shape, color, and feel also contribute their gifts and meanings.

Placing Amethyst in Your Home!

Aside from what they can do for your body, Amethyst crystals are one of the most beneficial stones to have in your environment. Due to this, many people fill their homes with them—in their bedroom, living room, bathroom, office, meditation room, and from our viewpoint they should go near cat litter boxes, and where cats eat and spend most of their time napping. And yes, put one in your car too. The purpose is so that the amethyst healing properties constantly surround, influence, and protect them. Amethyst works to purify any space of negative vibrations, emanating an energy ideal for you to thrive in and be happy in. They help to clear the mind of unnecessary thoughts and clutter. On a physical level, having amethyst crystals in your home is believed to help strengthen the immune system and heal any imbalances that lie in the body.

Amethyst clusters and Amethyst geodes carry the strongest power to rid your home of negative energy or to correct bad behaviors of those who live there which makes them the best crystals to fill your home with. Key places to put Amethyst is anywhere that’s central to your home such as on your fireplace, coffee table, dining table, or any other place that’s central and important in your unique home. We want Amethyst’s healing properties radiating inside each room, creating almost a tempo or resonance between them that’s full of life and beneficial healing. Also place placed near each door that comes into your home from the outside to prevent bad energies from entering and causing interference. If you have a front porch, or a side or back step place one there too.

For cats they can be tucked into a cat’s bed or in the corner of a favorite sofa so that the loving and soothing energy can be right where a cat is spending most of the day and night which is usually sleeping and resting. They can go in your cat’s dining area and near their litter boxes (which are ideally in separate rooms and far away from each other. Amethyst carved into the shape of a cat might be particularly useful to our domestic cats and surely could assist in positive changes in their behavior particularly when Cat Faeries Flower Essences for Cats or Convivial House Cat is placed upon it. This would be after you cleansed it, energized it, and set your intentions as we detail in our crystals handout that comes with your order.

If you are a person who has a hard time falling asleep or staying asleep Amethyst crystals are even thought to helpful with insomnia or middle of the night agitation. They dispel anger and bitterness. Placing an Amethyst cluster in your business is thought to attract abundance and bring new opportunities walking through the door. Do you use a sauna? Take an Amethyst with you and set it near you to dispel the toxins that are releasing.

Correcting Cat Behavior and Enhancing Their Health and Well Being

Many feel that unlike quartz crystal that Amethyst charges itself especially the darker the purple it is. Other crystals and gemstones need to be set out in the sun for charging but all that’s needed to clear your Amethyst is cold running water. Once you have cleansed your new Amethyst carved cats place them in special or cat loving places.

  • Near the water bowl BUT not in it as there could be traces of toxic minerals not visible to the naked eye. It’s also best to not place them in water bowls as the cat’s saliva will coat them with biofilms which would require washing with warm soapy water. See our blog article on biofilms.
  • On your cat’s bed
  • On the sofa or a chair that your cat likes to snooze on
  • In the litter box latrine area to prevent chasing of timid cats or fighting by territorial cats
  • Place them on a dish or a piece of velvet or another cloth is nice and keeps them from rolling or moving around
  • Some Amethysts fade a bit in bright sun so keep that in mind

Step one: Cleanse your Amethyst under cold running water. Shake off excess water, pat dry

Step two: Program it by holding it in your hands, near the cave of your heart, and say the words or phrases which describe the changes in your cat’s behavior or health that you wish to see occur. After you do this say a heartfelt thank you. The flowery or more poetic your speech, the better!

Step three: Place it or them where you desire making sure that the location is easy and convenient for you since you’ll be applying drops or sprays daily.

Step four: Put a few drops or sprays of the product of your choice which would be one of Cat Faeries Flower Essences for Cats or Convivial House Cat. You can use more than one remedy at a time. Do this daily until the situation has changed or for maintenance.

Step five: Once a week or so give the Amethyst a rinse under cold water to remove dust and dried flower essences or Convivial House Cat. It probably won’t need re-programming, but do it anyway, crystals of all kinds love being cleansed and they LOVE being talked to and thanked!

More detailed instructions come with your order, save them!

 
 

Crystals and flower essences, pairing two powerful and effective modalities!

Many years ago, a few of us flower essence visionaries did an experiment. We wanted to see if we could beam or transmit the vibration from our flower essences to another person or animal by using crystals. We thought that in theory it would work, but we wanted to thoroughly test it out to make certain. We gathered our own single essences and several of Cat Faeries formulas for cats which feature the vibrations of flowers, trees, mushrooms, and gemstones. We selected a few people who had cats or other animals who agreed to be part of an experiment but who didn’t know the details therefore we could conduct a “blind test” with zero influence from our test subjects. To create a “double blind” test we covered over the name of the essence on the bottle, and shuffled them around so we would not know which we were applying to our crystals.

With giddy joy, we found that putting a few drops of a flower essence on a crystal, then following with the power of our minds and the intention of our spoken words asking the crystal to transmit the energy to the person or animal that it had worked. When we checked in with our subjects and asked if they felt or noticed changes either for themselves or their furry friends every answer was yes! Some people told us they actually preferred the use of crystals as it felt more powerful, but still gentle, to the traditional methods which include people taking drops in a glass of water or under the tongue, and for cats and other animals, putting drops in a cat’s food or water, anointing a cat’s fur, paws, ears or back.

Wondering if our success was serendipitous we did this 5 times over the course of a few months and each time with different subjects. The results were the same, we always got positive feedback and lots of YES! This new amplified way of using flower essences on crystals was working and we couldn’t have been happier!

Getting to know Cat Faeries crystals – new specimens have just arrived!

There is a very special mine where our crystals come from where the stones are mined with integrity and care. The quality is superb. The vibration of these crystals is pure and they await YOU to clear them and to set your intentions so that they may serve you, your cats, and all of those who you love and care for.

We are fortunate to have crystals called Golden Healers which are a quartz crystal that grew on or near Iron Hydrate and gives them a wonderful golden color, a golden glow, or a wash a golden yellow. This golden color adds to the healing power of quartz crystal. Golden Healers are rather hard to come by, and healers collect them and cherish them. They are for anyone who’s intrigued by crystals and likes having them around for their beauty, or who is serious about crystal healing and wishes to elevate their work with crystals we are honored to offer you Golden Healer Quartz.


 
 

In Vedic astrology, this color represents the planet Jupiter, it’s day of the week is Thursday which would be the ideal day to do your crystal healing. Thursday is a positive day, a day to wear yellows and oranges, to feel grateful and to be productive, and to take care of our health and the health of those we love. This is a good time to expand your consciousness and to learn something new or elevate what you already know, and crystal work will compliment this perfectly. Gazing upon a golden healer for 3 minutes on a Thursday will soothe the eyes.

Currently in our collection we have two categories of specimens of Golden Healers: 1) Chubby or Pointed which are more the usual crystal shape with a point that is either pointy or rounded, or which might be an irregular shape. These are sold individually and we select them for you based on your name or the name of the cat who needs crystal healing. 2) Grab Bags which contain a mix of what we call “pin needle” crystals that are long, narrow and have a point or are smaller irregular shapes. There are 5 to a grab bag. When you order you’ll use the COMMENTS area to tell us who the crystals are for and its ok to tell us the condition you are hoping to correct.

Coming later this month we will offer a few larger specimens sold individually, which were weighed and photographed so you can purchase the one that speaks to you.

If you like your crystal “water clear” we also have beautiful AAA grade quartz which is may have some cloudy elements, something that healer love too. They have points and are sized around 2 inches in length.

When you order flower essences from Cat Faeries we include our lavender color handout which will have the various ways you can use flower essences including how to work with crystals.

From our website:

Golden Healers are themselves master healers, therefore they will help you master your own healing work. They will help you access The Gold Ray. They will help you transform, transmute, grow, change, evolve, find and feel joy, blossom and flourish. They assist you when you need to dissolve negativity and release it. Access your own Christ consciousness, Angelic and Devic energies, and the Goddess within. Golden Healers have a very high vibration or frequency and are very well suited to flower essence work. Welcome to a special clan of healers who work with Golden Healers. Join us in doing your own healing work to benefit those you love and care for, and those in your unique community.

Quartz Crystals are powerful and beautiful and will boost the effectiveness of flower essences and of Convivial House Cat. All you need to do is place a few drops of either (or both) products on your crystal and it will beam the vibration to where you’ve directed it. So simple! Detailed instruction will be found in your hand out for Convivial House Cat and our flower essence formulas.
