The more I work with cats, the more I am convinced that they are natural intuitive healers. Not just the times you are in bed poorly and your cat sleeps next to you making you feel loved with their loud comforting purrsâ€¦â€¦but Iâ€™m talking about the cats that help their owners cope with huge life changes, like the death of a partner.
3 cats that I have cat sat for over the years have been amazing these past 12 months. 2 of the cats provided comfort, company and emotional healing to the remaining partner and then passed away themselves almost a year to the day of their owner dying, the remaining partner telling me it was almost like they had stayed to heal, then when they felt their job was done had passed on themselves. The third cat had brought comfort to both owners who were terminally ill and was with them both when they passed away separately, this cat much younger than the other cats now has a new home providing company for a lady recently single. I feel very honoured to have known and cared all of these cats and I hope I gave help when needed at the end for the cats themselves and the owners.
Many people believe cats will absorb negative energy. Sometimes they just seem to appear in someoneâ€™s life when they are needed and when the negative situation is over they simply disappear.
A family member of mine whose cat had passed away previously was going through difficult stuff at home and a black cat just moved in, the woman looked everywhere for its owner but no luck. The cat stayed for over 3 months and after the difficult stuff was settled the cat just vanished!
So the next time you are having a bad day, just tell your cat all about it, they know more than you thinkâ€¦â€¦
