Lucy the cat is alive and well in the UK at 39 years! If she were a human she would be 173 years old! What’s Lucy’s secret? Love? Buckets of affection? Catnip? Could Lucy be part vampire?
Our oldest cat crossed the bridge at age 22. Another one at 20, a few at age 18, and a few around age 15 or 16.
When we posted this great article last week to our Facebook page we heard from many of our customers and friends who astonished us with how long many of their cats lived. Of course one person thought the story is a hoax. Well we don’t know, but isn’t it inspiring? We say, hats off to all of you for taking such good care of your cats!
Here’s the story about Lucy the 39 year old cat!
To boost your cat’s longevity we’d like to suggest two of our flower essence formulas: Kidney Kitty (your cat is not too young to begin with this in the water bowl) and Elder Support, which will support the body’s functions during the aging process.
A cat on her well-deserved day off.
Johnny Cash’s birthday was last week on the 26th! Isn’t he cool with his feline friend? He was the coolest of the cool!
One Christmas a customer gave us some bulbs which she said to put in a vase with pebbles and water (very Martha Stewart!). The window sill in the bathroom seemed like the perfect place to put them.
One night Torti, our feisty little tortoiseshell, was sitting on the back of the sofa when she fell over as if fainting. Cats don’t “faint” like we can. We knew this was very serious so we rushed her to the emergency vet hospital.
An hour later she went into cardiac arrest 5 times, and 5 times the doctor defibrillated her. Mystified as why this was happening the vet contacting a colleague, a veterinary heart specialist in another state. The tension was intense. The attending nurses were crying because they had never seen a cat survive more than one episode of cardiac arrest let alone five in quick succession.
Torti survived a case of arrhythmia where something causes the heart to slow to a dangerous level which can lead to failure and death.
When things settled down the vet and the out of state specialist asked us if she could have ingested anything toxic in our home. Since we are greener than green and obsessed with being as toxin free as possible we were stumped. But we questioned everything in the house and office, and of course felt horribly guilty that we’d done something wrong. The next days were spent agonizing over what could have caused the arrhythmia.
Four days later when Torti was discharged and came home the first thing she did was trot into the bathroom, leap on top the sink, and make a bee-line for that vase. It was beginning to flower and we recognized them as Narcissus. I grabbed Torti and shut the door to keep her out. Using Google and the words: cats narcissus heart – there it was! That’s what caused Torti’s near death experience! Torti became known far and wide as Torti Narcissus – The Miracle Cat! Her photo is still on the refrigerator of one of the nurses who tended to her that night. The out of state specialist was so impressed with Torti’s survival and recovery that he flew in to meet her and examine her himself.
Torti had no lingering effects from her ordeal and she lived another 10 very happy years. Every time she went to the vet everyone wanted to see Torti Narcissus – The Miracle Cat.
Giving and Receiving Flowers
It sounds like we’ve put the kibosh on giving and receiving pretty flowers! It may feel like there isn’t much left. Don’t despair! Roses – you can’t go wrong with roses, especially when they are locally grown and not sprayed with pesticides.
