Do You Have a Healing Kitty in Your House?

by Alison W. – Certified Veterinary Technician

It was the final hot summer before the shelter in Florida closed. The adoption area was filled with adult cats and the unavailable kittens were in a separate building not open to the public. The one room building also housed the washers and dryers for the entire shelter. As you might imagine, the A/C couldn’t keep up. Two walls of cages were full. The remaining kittens lived in plastic carriers stacked on top of each other. Most of them just had numbers on their tags. They didn’t get names until they were moved to the adoption area. But one crate near the washers held a black and white kitten with a name – “Weety”. He was an owner surrender and had probably been named by a child in the family. Whenever I went to do laundry I looked for him and said “Hi Weety”.

Weety and me summer 2008


One day I went to check laundry and Weety was gone! There was only one possible reason. He was sick and had been transferred to the hospital area. The Green Room (named for the color of the walls) was even smaller than the holding area. Most kittens who were sent there had upper respiratory infections. They were treated with antibiotics and, if they survived, sent back to the holding area.

When I found him he was so dehydrated he didn’t have enough moisture in his body to sneeze. Luckily, the surgery/clinic area was closed that week. Normally sick animals were not allowed there. I gave him SQ fluids, canned food and a towel lined bed made from a plastic hospital basin. He was SO HAPPY to be in a clean, comfortable place. I’ve never seen a sick cat react with such intense affection. At the end of the week I took him home to finish antibiotics and make sure he didn’t have a relapse. Of course, by then I was totally in love so I formally adopted him.

Later that summer I had a respiratory infection myself. Whenever I was lying down Weety would sit on my chest and purr. (He still does this whenever I am sick.) I don’t think there is any more relaxing sound than a cat purr. But, it is a misconception that cats purr only when they are happy. They also purr when stressed (e.g. visiting the vet) and when they are sick. This is not surprising since the 26 Hertz range of a cat purr promotes tissue regeneration. It may even heal and strengthen bones.

Weety is very sensitive and always seems to know when I need some healing kitty energy. I like to think he is returning my earlier kindness to him.

He was my final rescue from Florida and has remained my designated Healing Kitty. He also does a great Cheshire Cat impression. =^..^=

Free Long Distance Energy Healing for animals! Sunday February 2nd.

Energy healing is an amazing skill that your cat faerie learned many years ago. Every now and then she welcomes newsletter readers and Cat Faeries customers to sign up their sick or elderly animals to receive the benefits of a healing session. Free of charge. It’s a gift to our friends in the animal kingdom.

You do not need to be sitting with your furry or feathered friend for the benefits to be felt. But people email after to say that if they did hold their animal and they could feel the healing vibrations and they could observe subtle changes in their friend. People tell us that it’s a very rewarding experience for all.

If you wish to join in during that time either with prayer, meditation, invocation, songs, chanting, etc. – join us during any time during the 45 minute session.

While we don’t require that you email us after the healing we really love to hear from you with your impressions of how your furry friend responded.

Here’s how to sign up:

  • Email a photo of your animal (it can be any animal, this is not limited to cats)
  • Subject line must read: February animal healing
  • In the body of the email tell us a bit about your friend: name, age, health status
  • We must get your email before midnight Friday, January 31st

Comfort for when an animal friend or any friend dies

A group of students of a Tibetan Buddhist Lama were walking through a forest with their teacher.

They came upon the body of a young man. The students looked the man over, looking for marks, blood, any of the usual indicators to explain why a person might die.

They found nothing. Puzzled they asked their teacher:

Why did this young man die?

The wise Lama said: Because he was born.

May this simple thought and perspective ease your pain.
