Pet Acupuncture Healing

As I wrote about in my book, The Attractor Factor, one of my fundamental beliefs is “There is always a way.”

I don’t care what the problem or challenge happens to be. Either a solution, cure or healing exists, or one can be created. That empowering belief helps me use the Law of Attraction to attract a solution.

I have used that underlying premise for decades now. It’s helped me handle cancer scares, IRS audits, weight loss, pet health issues and more.

For now, let’s talk about pet health issues.

I love animals. I’ve had pets my entire life. At one point I owned eleven cats. Yes, eleven.

Cats age and often get ill, just like humans. Yes, I’m surprised, too.

Recently one of our senior citizens, Chelsea, couldn’t move her back legs.  She would hop to food.  She couldn’t walk, so she mostly dragged herself. It was sad to see, and scary. We didn’t want to think of losing her, or her suffering.

I took her to the local vet. They took x-rays.  They came back with the results: Chelsea’s spine was fusing at the base. She needed surgery, but at her age (fourteen) it wasn’t a good idea.

The vet offered no hope.

I didn’t accept surgery or ‘nothing’ as our options.

I knew, “There is always a way.”

I jumped online. I Googled “cure cat spine problems.” One of the top results was about acupuncture for pets.

Acupuncture for animals?

I’ve done acupuncture. I don’t like needles any more than you do, but I have to admit it worked for me.

Would it work for Chelsea?

Was it possible?

I searched my area and found a local Austin, Texas vet who did chiropractic work and acupuncture on cats and dogs.

I drove Chelsea there. Here she is getting her first acupuncture treatment:

Did this treatment work?

Was it worth the drive, cost and effort?

The very next day Chelsea was walking.

She is not perfectly normal yet, but she moves her back legs, walks with a limp rather than a hop or a drag, and looks happy and healthy.

Again, if you come from the empowering belief that “There is always a way,” you open your mind to seeing new possibilities.

Here’s a video of Chelsea getting her second acupuncture treatment:

Super Tiger

img00099.jpg I didn’t know what to name him.

He was a feral cat that my late wife Marian and I found when he was a kitten over 20 years ago.

He quickly became loving but never lost his wild side. He seemed fearless. I saw him chase dogs off our yard. Other cats didn’t stand a chance. His presence intimidated them.

He became my best friend. His fearlessness was something I admired. He seemed strong and content. He seemed quiet and wise.

We called him ST, which was short for Super Tiger. He seemed to like being named after a jungle animal. He was a Maine Coon breed.

Marian and I had him for 14 years. Nerissa and I have had him for another 8 years. He’s lived a long, happy, luxurious life.

He got shrimp every night.

He got catnip cigars when I could find them.

He got all the attention he ever wanted or allowed.

I even built the Catarium for him and his late brother, Brownie. It allowed them to explore the great outdoors without hunting or being hunted.

ST developed diabetes a while back, but we managed to completely cure him of that.

But he also developed several internal tumors, the last two coming in quick and growing fast. A third showed up last week.

We haven’t been able to do anything about the cancer.

So we made Tiger’s last days as loving and comfortable as we could.

He left us today, around 5 pm.

I thank you for all the love you sent our way.

Tiger felt it, too.

Ao Akua,


PS – I’m relieved ST has passed on, isn’t suffering, and is one with all again. I love him.
