Cats on Tuesday
This is a photo of my cat Anela posing for her photo for Cats On Tuesday. I promised I would only show the "good" photos, as I know how very vain she is. Anela means angel in Hawaiian, and she has always been an extremely angelic cat in that she doesn't scratch furniture, climb on furniture or counters, knock things over, go to the bathroom on a bed in a peevish moment or jump on the laps of company.
The main reason I attribute her excellent etiquette is this: I am in clear communication with her. We established our nonverbal, telepathic communication since she was young. She came to my life when she was a baby, and since I always have listened to her cat complaints with respect, and she has listened to mine (telepathically, of course), we have been in a simpatico relationship. Just because she has fur and walks on four paws doesn't mean she is LESS, and actually cats are often much MORE than humans give them credit for. Many years ago when I was working with wild dolphins, I had a visit from a vetenarian and his wife from Portugal. Over lunch he confided he never operated on cats anymore because he said they never go quite "out" with any anesthetics, and he sensed they "feel" more of the pain than most vets acknowledge. He said cats are some of the most profound beings on this planet.
Cats see into the spirit world, the invisible worlds surrounding us. This 'seeing' has been validated by scientists. It's something to do with the cones in their eyes...they have lots more cones than humans. Since I know this, I have requested Anela to give me the high-sign when anyone "special" from another dimension or spirit-world is visiting or if there is something she needs to point out to me which I am not 'seeing'. She invariably does so. This doesn't necessarily mean I will see what she is seeing, but I will stop, sense and tune into the energies. She comes in very handy because she contributes to my awareness....and I appreciate her very much.
