This is probably going to sound rather strange, especially coming from a health practitioner. But you don’t always have to act, you don’t always have to have an immediate response to ill health. At least, not immediately. Most caring cat people do tend to panic and race off to their preferred health practitioner at the slightest problem. And sometimes it is wise and necessary. But at other times, it is better to wait and see.
For a variety of reasons, people do tend to over react when their cat is below par. Sometimes there is a feeling of guilt, that if they don’t act and something happens, they will never forgive themselves. This is very human in our present consciousness.
But we need to consider the cat and what they want. This is rarely given any thought, but it should be a priority. Would we want someone making us comply against our wishes, simply because they think they know best?
The body also has amazing healing capacities and it should always be allowed to work to see if it can indeed heal the present problem.
There are three important health keys to monitor to help you decide if your cat, or anyone for that matter, needs help.
If all these are all normal, then your cat is likely doing a good job and you just need to monitor progress. Don’t act too hastily, whatever is going on, unless it is something obvious such as a serious injury.
If one of them falls off, then again, all things being equal, just monitor. If two or three of them fall off, then I suggest help is needed.
For example diarrhoea, vomiting or constipation may be easily dealt with by a healthy cat, but will probably affect the appetite for a day or two. If they do continue, then problems can occur, so help is needed.
If a serious problem has occurred, at least one of the three important health keys will have changed. For example, if poison has been ingested, the appetite will be absent and they will either sleep more or won’t be able to sleep.
It’s also a good idea to nurse your cat at home. Leaving them with strangers is not going to help them heal. They will feel abandoned. Home is familiar.
You need to really trust the practitioner, when you let your cat out of your sight, as at that point you have no idea what is happening, you lose control.
There are so many incidents that you can either just wait and see what happens or that you can treat yourself at home, saving both your cat the anguish of being mauled by strangers, and your wallet.
Learning how to use the common homeopathic remedies at home can save you many mad dashes to practitioners at times that are inconvenient to you.
Many moons ago, long before I had ever heard of homeopathy, one of my cats came home late one night. She couldn’t walk. She had dragged herself home. Once I had collected myself, I decided that she had probably been hit by a car.
The vet wouldn’t see her until the next morning.
We both had an anguished and sleepless night. Had I known about homeopathy and home prescribing it, I could have started the healing off to a great start. It may not have been complete, but it would have saved her a lot of pain.
The vet kept her in for a few days, causing us both grief. Her X ray showed a broken hip, confirming my thoughts. This is not something that can be set. But it is something that causes a lot of pain. And this pain responds exceptionally well to homeopathic remedies.
She was an excellent patient, lying in a box in my office, elevated so she could see out the window. And she did fully recover. But it could have been faster, less traumatic and pain free had I known a fraction of what I know now.
