When your cats ill health becomes a major or expensive problem for you, it is likely to stir up fear. Although this is understandable, it is not helpful. When you’re frightened, you make all the wrong decisions. You do whatever you are told, whether or not it resonates with you.
You are easily persuaded by someone else’s logic.
Your feelings might be screaming out to you not to do this, but your head overrules you.
Fear is endemic in today’s world. It has been carefully cultivated. And it isn’t just you. It goes back generations, escalating with each new generation.
Your natural state is to be empowered. Your natural state is to be able to calmly and efficiently deal with problems that occur. And to be able to feel when problems may occur and so take avoiding action.
Just a notch up from being frightened is being angry. It’s a little more empowering for you, but it is just as unhelpful. Anger tends to make you lash out. Lashing out is trying to make another responsible for your lack. You try to make yourself feel better (which never happens), by making others feel worse.
A much more helpful way to deal with your cats ill health, or anyone else’s, is to stop. Don’t make any rash decisions. Go home, preferably with your cat, and calm down.
If you haven’t been nurturing any calming techniques like meditation or sitting out in Nature quietly, then you may find the Bach flower essence Rescue Remedy helpful. Anything to get you out of the panic or near panic state.
It’s important that you approach this problem with a calm mind.
Now, you can focus on the problem in a logical fashion, facing one problem at a time. But the important point here is to focus on how you FEEL. Your feelings, possibly long ignored, are your gateway to taking the most beneficial action for you and those you feel responsible for.
This is NOT necessarily logical.
It IS very individual.
You will feel GOOD about making the decision.
Only then do you know it’s the right one.
So now look at the problem. From a fresh perspective. Perhaps your cats ill health is the worry.
Consider: Your Cats Ill Health is An Acute or Chronic Problem
If it’s an acute problem, then it may very well sort itself out. Everybody, cats included, have an ability to heal themselves. You just have to provide the where-with-all for them to achieve this. That may just be quiet time, rest and warmth.
If the problem is a chronic problem, then it will have taken years to develop. You just didn’t notice it, which is perfectly normal.
If your cat has a chronic disease which has taken years to develop, then you might like to consider the factors that lead up to this. Hint – your vet is unlikely to be of help here.
The common problem everyone faces today is a lot of very poor quality food which does nothing to provide for a healthy immune system. The commercial cat food industry is king in this department.
Now, from a fresh perspective, you could consider a diet that is more in keeping with how your cat evolved. This alone has done wonders for many cats, with no other treatment. Not just slightly ill cats, but cats who were on the brink of death.
Consider: Your Cat’s Treatment is Too Expensive
Let’s look at the other problem. You are facing expensive treatment for your cat, and feel that this is their only hope, but you just can’t afford it. Or maybe you can.
Although most vets don’t want you to know this, they are not the only people who can help your cat. Holistic treatment, especially homeopathy, can turn ailments around far more quickly, far more efficiently, far more easily, far less expensively than most vet treatments.
Vets have been taught to diagnose a disease with a label, then to match a drug to the label.
Homeopaths are taught to look for causes of ill health, then unravel that. It means the treatment is of short, or shortish, duration rather than the lifetime treatment that is so common.
When you are faced with unpleasant or untenable problems, forget the fear. Forget the anger. Go home. Or go somewhere serenely peaceful.
Calm down. Let the problem go. An image of it floating away…
Then slowly and effortlessly look at the problems one at a time. And notice how you feel with each one.
You are FAR more likely to help your cats ill health this way, more than any other way.
