When I first became interested in a natural diet and health care for my animals (many years ago), including cats health, I was invited to a public talk, given by my veterinarian. She was heavily into alternative health care and soon after, she gave away the veterinary side of her practice all together.

Even though this resulted in a substantial income reduction, she felt she could no longer carry out procedures which she knew to be harmful. Her biggest bug bear was vaccination.

Her talk inspired me. She narrated how she had been visiting a relative overseas, who wanted her to treat her cat.

The cat was very timid, spending much of the day hiding under the bed covers. Geraldine, my vet, observed that this was exactly how her relative, Odette was. She was hiding at home, hardly daring to leave her home unless it was absolutely necessary.

Geraldine was an old hand at observing the similarities between people and their pets, so she set about treating Odette, rather than her cat. She decided to use the Bach Flower Essences.

Odette kept in touch, and over the coming weeks and months, reported her progress. She was becoming increasingly brave, venturing out and about at an increasingly regular rate.

AT THE SAME TIME, almost in step with Odette’s improvement, her cat started venturing around the house and then outside. He even wanted to spent a night outside on occasion, something that was completely unusual as it was formally very fearful for him.

And yet, he had received no treatment AT ALL!

Why am I telling you this?

Natural therapists know only too well that animals seem to take on the  same attributes as their humans. It’s as if they are helping us carry the load, by sharing it. Or perhaps they are reflecting back to us, who we are.

Whatever it is, your health is inextricably linked to that of your cats.

If you want the best for your cat, then the first thing to do is to start by sorting out your own problems. Lighten up. Seek appropriate health care, preferably holistic, preferably homeopathic. By sorting yourself out, you have gone a long way to sorting out the health of your cat.

      Thank you for sharing this characteristic about cats. I recently had a friend that works with horses and children share similar stories about her experiences.

      I have found a great homeopath close by and will soon be going to see her. This is thanks to your website recommendation. I thank you with much appreciation.

      Have 2 cats. One gravitates to husband, the one closest to me vomits a lot after eating esp. in AM. Regular vets are not helpful since push box store foods for problem cats. Herbs from wholistic vet not working. I have a lot of stomach issues. Doctors told me had GERD but found out there is constant bile in my stomach (had gall bladder removed 6 yrs. ago). I laughingly have said the cat has many eating issues like me. They were barn cats on dried box food, have gotten on high quality wet & have tried raw but this cat does not like it or vomits it up.
      Any suggestions?

      Hi Lee, good question. Commercial pet food is very toxic, despite the price and ‘high quality’ so you need to change to a quality, natural diet as a priority. Only then will you know if the food is the problem or if it is something deeper. BTW, herbs are toxic to cats, so avoid them. On the other issue, yes your animals will tend to have the same ailments you have, so that is a great incentive to get your own health sorted out on an energetic basis. Homeopathic treatment can help you both. Let me know if you need help finding someone.

      As a result of serious illness my tabby “Sunshine” has been switched to a natural diet. I’ve noticed her nose is changing colors, it has become darker. Is there a connection between the color of her nose and her diet?

    • Madeleine Innocent

      Many things change as the return to good health starts. It depends on the colour and whether her paler coloured nose was more vulnerable to things such as excess sun – interesting thought bearing in mind her name!
