This is one of my favorite photos in Catscapades, Tales of Ordinary and Extraordinary Cats.
And then there’s the story of Daisy and Katy: The Kittens Who Learned to Love on page 58 in Catscapades, Tales of Ordinary and Extraordinary Cats.
If you’ve ever wanted to be heard—I mean really heard and understood by your cat, you’ll appreciate these two stories. At the end of my rope, in both instances, I decided to try “speaking” to these kittens using visualization—mind-to-mind—which is, according to some experts, the way animals communicate.
You won’t believe the amazing results I experienced when using visualization to spread the love between two kittens who were absolutely hateful to one another. Daisy liked being the princess bee. And she did not appreciate my bringing home gorgeous Katy. In fact, she quickly reduced the little Himalayan to dustball status. If I wanted to interact with Katy, I had to drag her out from under a piece of furniture. One night the kittens woke me in the night with their growls and high-pitched yowls. I raised my head off the pillow and saw the two kittens—one on each side of my legs. Katy had finally mustered enough courage to join us on the bed. But things weren’t going well.
I had a splitting headache and the kittens were at war with each other. I watched as Daisy smacked Katy twice on top of her head with her paw. And Katy, ears flat back, eyes tightly closed, raised one paw and slapped the air a few times in the direction of the calico. The growling sounds accelerated with each blow.
I was glad to see that the kittens were dialoguing, but their timing was awful. I had to get some rest. And I so wanted the kittens to be friends. That’s when I brought out the big guns and used a visualization method I’d only heard about.
If you have cats who won’t listen to you, and if you’d like to attempt a method that just might help to open up a channel of communication with him/her, you must read these two stories in Catscapades, Tales of Ordinary and Extraordinary Cats. Order your copy at
