I had an unexpected health scare, and both my cats, Ginger
and Russ, gave me great comfort as I healed. Later, in 2008,
when Ginger was 17 ½ years old, she passed. A year later,
I also lost my sweet Russ after having him for six years.
my kitties were alive, I often played beautiful instrumental
music from a CD entitled "Animal Healing" by Perry Wood. The
music is so calming and soothing that I even enjoyed meditating
to it as well as playing it at bedtime. When Ginger passed,
I missed her terribly and wondered if she was okay. I couldn't
bring myself to play the "Animal Healing" CD until one night
at bedtime about seven months later.
on the music and got comfortable in my bed, but several minutes
later the CD stopped playing. I got up to investigate and
discovered that my CD player was completely turned off. I
thought this was very unusual since it was still plugged in
and neither my lamp nor my clock radio were affected. But
I dismissed the incident thinking it was an electronic glitch,
and I played the CD for the second time without incident.
when Russ passed, I decided to communicate to him one evening,
not knowing whether I would receive an answer. I told him
I missed him and wanted to know if he was okay.
day, when I turned on my laptop, the first thing that popped
up on my screen was my favorite photo of Russ! I had taken
this photo of him perched on top of the cat post while he
stared directly at me. I was taken completely by surprise
since I never used Russ's photo as a screen saver or on the
desk top! That was the first time and only time I had that
with Russ's photo made me reexamine my prior experience of
trying to play the "Animal Healing" CD after Ginger's passing.
Ginger was such a mellow kitty that I now believe she choose
to communicate with me in a subtle way. Whereas Russ was such
a gregarious kitty that he communicated in a dynamic way that
made me take notice!
my kitties were such a blessing to me. Their unconditional
love left me grateful and honored to have had them, and these
experiences reassured me that they are both okay.
