Thanks to everyone again for all the purrs and good wishes... and especially the best prescription ever ! Who knew (besides those Tabbies o' Trout Town) that a slab of fish on your forhead would cure what ails ya (and allows you to make a tasty snack!). It all helped, and I am going to get out of this house today, and maybe even make the Daddy take me out to get a bite to eat. I am at least going to the farm market for some goodies. Can you believe that it's nearly Labor Day ?
So what have we noticed ? Well, there are two things that I have noticed here in the house. The first one, and the one that makes me smile most is that Dex is making me biscuits! I really didn't realize it at first, because he never really has done it much, but he has been standing next to me and those front two paws just start makin' a batch. He sometimes has an odd expression on his face, like "what am I doing? why am I doing it?" But knead away he does and I am hopeful to think that it is because things have maybe begun to loosen up in his toes and it is allowing a natural instinct to not be supressed. The other thing I have noticed, although this could be because I was on the couch and wanted more peace and quiet, but Dexter and Tipp have been "ramming around the house" more lately. My big Dex is not a real runner, but he has been chasing his lithe little brother around lately, and while I don't know if it relates to his feet being more comfortable, he does seem a bit more zippy.
Does this mean the essences are helping? I do believe so. When I experience change with flower essences, other than in acute cases like with Rescue Remedy, they seem gentle and grow over time. Does this mean I will need to give him essences forever ? Probably not. There always seems to be a point where the essences have realigned the energy as best they can and I intuitively end off. But that isn't to say that I would never restart them, or for how long I would use them. It's different than a 5 day course of antibiotics, so I just roll with it.
We're going to try venturing outside again this week. Time to get gussied up in his sharp blue harness and see how he does outdoors. We really want to have him have more outdoor time and since no catio was built this summer (I got lazy and I didn't bug the Daddy to help me) then I gotta get him back out there.
I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. If you have a chance, visit the auction for Zoolatry, there are some awesome things to bid on (including a nip filled door scratchy thing that Tipp donated....) and the monies are going to help our dear friends. Take care!
