Why does my cat scold me when I come home?

One of my first Animal Communication cases was solved by teaching my client a way to communicate with her own animal.

My client, whom I'll call Lisa, was a semi-retirement computer software documentor, working 4 days a week.  Every few Fridays, she and a friend would go off for a 3-day weekend to rose festivals because they loved roses.

Lisa lived with her cat, Tuxie, in a house in a small town.  When Lisa began going away for long weekends, her cat, Tuxie, would greet her on her return by "scolding" her, refusing to sit on her lap, and refusing to sleep with Lisa that night.  Lisa didn't understand what was happening.

I asked Lisa to explain the arrangements she made for Tuxie for the times she was away.  She told me that everything was taken care of by a neighbor - fresh food and water, litter box cleaned.  The neighbor would even brush Tuxie, if the cat was willing, as Tuxie knew the neighbor well.

Since my client and I were both working at the same computer software company, I suggested she try something on her own before I talked with Tuxie.

"From Tuxie's perspective," I told Lisa, "you suddenly leave - disappear - and she has no idea what's going on, whether or not you'll return, and what arrangements, if any, you've made for her care.

"Your cat is telepathic.  Even if you think you're not telepathic, animals who live with us can tune into our thoughts and feelings.  If you say your cat's name out loud, she'll pay attention to whatever you say next and pick up the images, concepts, and emotions you're expressing.  So here's what I recommend.

"Sit down with Tuxie a few days before your next trip and explain everything to her just like you might tell a human who lives with you. 

"Tell Tuxie your plans.

  • when you plan to leave;
  • when you plan to return,
  • who's going with you;
  • where you're going;
  • why you're going; and
  • most importantly, the arrangements you've made for Tuxie's care while you're gone.

"Try this and let me know what happens."

Lisa protested.  "What will my neighbors think?" she asked me.

"Don't talk to Tuxie in your yard.  Do it in the house." I responded.  "You don't have to tell your neighbor anything.  This is between you and Tuxie."

Lisa said she'd consider this, although from the look on her face, I doubted that she would do it.

A few weeks passed, and I had forgotten completely about my conversation with Lisa.

One Monday morning I was surprised to find Lisa waiting for me in my office.  She was very excited.

"It's amazing!"  she began, all smiles.  "I took your advice.  I went away this last weekend with my friend and before I left, I told Tuxie everything you had suggested.  She seemed to listen, but I wasn't sure she understood.

"When I got home last night, Tuxie greeted me at the door without any complaints.  She purred and rubbed up against me.  After dinner, we watched TV together and she sat in my lap as usual.  She even came into my bed last night, just as though I'd never been away.

"I can't thank you enough for teaching me about this.  Tuxie was happy to see me and not upset at all with me for being away.  Now I can travel and enjoy my trips without worrying that Tuxie is home fretting."

Purring to Ground.

Master Teacher Sakhara on Purring

Claiming Her Catnip Pillow.Claiming Her Catnip Pillow.

When I awakened at 3:30 this morning, I wasn't sure whether to get up or go back to sleep.

Sakhara soon arrived on the bed and threw her body down with her back against my head and chest.

With my heavy human head partially supported by a pillow and partially resting on Sakhara's chest, and with my right arm around her body gently touching her feet, I received a purring lesson, although I didn't realize it at the time.

Sakhara's purrs are usually very gentle and quiet and difficult to hear, but this morning, with my left ear against her body, they sounded very strong and loud and gentle.  It was delightful to lie there and listen to them.  Is this how kittens feel?

Sakhara told me to breath normally while allowing my breath to go through my feet and out.  Her purrs began to vibrate through me.  Did I actually fall asleep for awhile?  I don't know for sure.  But when I did notice the time again, I was very relaxed and felt rested.

Later on, I resumed my lesson in a more human way - asking questions and taking notes.

So I asked, " What was the lesson about?"  (Only a human would have to ask, right?)

Sakhara: 

"Purring as a form of grounding. 

To be grounded through purring, you must

  • Be in your own body fully.
  • Resonate with the purr of the Earth
  • Breathe in and out through your feet, allowing the purr to vibrate throughout your body.
  • Feel the purr resonate with the Earth's vibration."

What if someones doesn't have a cat?  How can they learn about purring?

Sakhara: 

"You don't have to have a cat to do this, but you do have to know what a purr sounds and feels like.  Then you ...

  • Become a cat.  Imagine yourself curled up and purring.  Imagine you can hear and feel the purr.
  • The purr vibrates throughout a feline's body -- all your bodies -- in one steady pulsing.  Let your purr spread throughout your bodies.
  • Your body settles gently into the earth.
  • Hear the purr. 
  • Feel the purr. 
  • Be the purr."

So I sat quietly in my chair and imagined I was a cat purring.  It didn't take long for me to feel very relaxed and quiet -- seemed like only a few seconds, really.  Great teacher!!  Thank you.
