Foster & Adoptive parents of Fur-babies

Here is a story of a wonderful woman Nikki who takes in kittens and cares for them until they are well enough to go to adoptive homes.  The video is on Facebook, sorry if you can’t or don’t want to log into FB but this is the only way that I can provide the link to the audio-visual of this amazing story.  Such is sometimes the nature of the internet world !!

.

The story is about 3 little kittens who were abandoned in freezing temperatures but Nikki was alerted to them.  One of the fur-babies nearly succumbed but Nikki tube fed this baby and she (named Bagel) pulled through.   Nikki gives up all kittens to new homes and gives them temporary names so even though these kittens may have been named after foods, of course, those names don’t have to be used by their new carers.

I’m happy to say that all 3 kittens became healthy and were all taken up by good homes.  Nikki has pictures on Instagram (another social media thing that you have to sign up for in order to view the photos).   Nikki’s Instagram page is below.

My Foster Kittens

Our beautiful boy Shandy cat was adopted by us on 1 January 2000 !   A memorable occasion as this sweet boy was a bond between my partner and I and helped us with responsibilities while giving us enjoyment and contentment.  Sadly Shandy passed away in February 2016 after being with us for 16 years, but as one of his adoptive parents I will always miss him.  He has his own Featured Page on this blog, and you can read about his wonderful adventures on several blog posts too, links below.

Finding Gobi

Update – help refuge animals in China & buy a soft plush GOBI

Gobi toys and Books on Etsy

.

Magical – if there was only one word I could use to describe this adventure set out so articulately and heartfeltly by Dion Leonard, this is it.

I won a copy of the book “Finding Gobi” through a Channel 7 “Sunday Night” competition, and was over the moon to receive my book last week, together with a compliments slip from the Seven Network:  Congratulations!  We hope you enjoy reading about Gobi as much as you loved watching her on our show.  With compliments from Sunday Night.

To win this prize, my entry in the competition mentioned my considering that I have an indefinable connection to animals ( see “Animals connecting to Celine” ) …. What I was trying to say is that there is sometimes a magical and beautiful relationship or connection between non-human animals and human beings.  Yes, I’ve heard that animals know human nature or people’s personalities instinctively, like they will know definitely if you are either an “animal lover” or an “animal hater” but Gobi’s and Dion’s story goes beyond that.

I have witnessed my own animal spiritual ally, Shandy cat, whom spent 16 years with me, being with me definitely on a mission.  That mission I am pretty sure, was to keep my partner & I together, because we had this charming, handsome, character of a cat to tend to and to love, and to give and receive companionship.  Shandy literally was the glue that stuck us together.

I can’t wait to watch the film of “Finding Gobi” as long as, of course, no animals are hurt or killed during the making of the film.

I loved Dion’s excellent literary prowess in his writing and his candid capture of his child-hood and glimpses into character building experiences which were like jig-saw puzzles that fit into his entire life.  Here I witnessed, through words on a page, a man whom not only has incredible physical fortitude and the iron will to compete and to win, but whom is compassionate and honest and intelligent.  Above all, without giving away too much for those who have not yet read the book, something was outstanding to me – about Dion’s approach to Life.

MAKE A DECISION

Dion Leonard is someone who knows about choices – there are many roads to China, as the saying goes, and sometimes there are clouds of uncertainty flurrying around a particular choice in front of you, BUT that is what life is about in its finest details –  CHOICES.

Gobi chose to follow Dion and to become his life-time spiritual ally ( woohoo ), and ..

Dion chose to find Gobi … and in an un-swerving manner … not to let down a cute little spirited dog whom raced across the Gobi desert with him …. as Dion points out …. to teach him things about himself and the teaching is never ending.

We have heard talk about past beings we know who have reincarnated to help us, and about spirit guides in some sort of energy form visiting us or coming into our lives, to help us.  I believe in these things, but whether or not it applies to the story of Dion and Gobi, matters not.

Gobi is a special little dog whom showed someone to open up more, to reinforce the message of inter-dependence and being inter-connected, whom is a model of courage and strength under fire, and has unconditional love for Dion and his family.  This story truly is a testament to the fact that non-human animals are not commodities or lesser beings.  They have souls.

I can vouch for the fact, that when our Shandy cat (who was abandoned as a kitten outside our house on New Year’s Eve, 2000) was a few weeks old, we were standing indoors looking out at the back yard.  I looked down at this sweet little kitten and he looked up at me, with a shining face and he smiled at me, the most loving smile of unconditional love that I have ever seen.   I know about the look of love and appreciation that Gobi gave Dion as they ran through the Gobi Desert.

Our animal companions are not “dumb animals” far from it.  They are stoic and brave, go for what they want, let others know what they want, they can be very loving and some are amazingly caring and intelligent and help their human companions …. in various ways …. such as Gobi did.

Deer Man – Darius helps a female Fawn

Doe, a Deer, a female deer, this lovely Story could be made a happy song.  A Deer with two babies left the female behind because she had a bad leg.  This is the natural instinct of the mother, but luckily for the Fawn, a dear man was watching.

Darius took the Fawn into his home, and introduced the baby to his many other animal companions.  He fed the baby every 4 hours and put a brace on her leg.  After that he successfully introduced her back to her Family !!   Of course, the nay-sayers on You Tube have left their Dis-likes & their strange comments like one person has said ‘Some who Disliked the Huffington Post’s video of this story, don’t like a public display of the story.”

What would they rather?  Perhaps they are okay with Darius knocking on their door telling him this story or they are happy with it just being known and passed around locally?  How about the facts, that it was reported to the Huffington Post, he didn’t go looking for “fame” and the fact that this story HAS and will inspire others to carry out such kind acts.

If you go to Darius’ You Tube channel, you will find a follow up video about the dear family! Of course he has posted this in response to people asking how the Fawn has fared since he helped her and released her to her deer family.

In my opinion the World could do with more people like Darius.

Thank you Darius !

Barney the orange comforter

Barneycomforter

“Writing on Facebook Debbie Ann Le Page stated: “God bless you Barney, remember that lovely sunny afternoon, I laid down on the grass in the cemetery and we cuddled up together for two hours.  I needed a friend that day and there you were my angel!  God bless you.”

He has been known as “Barney, the Cemetery Cat” but I’m calling him Barney, the orange comforter!  For some reason I’m really interested in ginger / marmalade cats, and have no idea why ( maybe it is just because I like the color orange, LOL ).   Anyhow, if anyone thinks or has told you that animals or cats cannot be or are not “spiritual” –  run away, far away.

Here is a beautiful magnificent ginger tabby cat whose Mission on Earth was quite obviously to look after the souls alive and passed, at St Sampson’s Cemetery, in Guernsey, the United Kingdom.

Barney greeted and comforted mourners for 20 years!  I know from having our beloved Shandy for 16 years, that just having a live even if small, dynamic and loving, intelligent warm Be-ing around you – is a source of happiness, comfort and inspiration.

Grounds keeper Alan Curzon said Barney has now been laid to rest at the place where he spent his entire life brightening up the lives of hundreds of people during their darkest moments.  This cat’s owner moved but as the Kitty kept returning to his work-place ( the Cemetery ) the neighborhood made him a home near to the cemetery and fed and cared for him.

Alan said: “When relatives and friends have suffered the awful loss of someone close to them and go to visit a cemetery they are not in the best frame of mind but Barney was always there to cheer them up.”

“For those who entered the cemetery with a heavy heart, he lightened up the experience for them. When people walked through the gates, he often came up to them and brushed against them.”

“There was not a bad bone in his body.”

“We are putting a plaque on the wall and a bench and have found a little space for him in the cemetery where he is buried as well.”

Rest in peace,  “Angel” Barney

Monty Magic

I have fallen in Love …….

with a  Cat !!    Yes, I love Monty Boy, just as much as I still love my beautiful kitty Shandy who sadly passed away on 24 February 2016.   Who wouldn’t love Monty?  He is a little boy, born with a chromosome problem, affecting the bridge of his nose, but fate dealt its hand and he was adopted  by Michael, someone who at that time never dreamed that he would ever have a Cat, let alone fall in love with this Paw-some cat.

Michael & Mikala have an online Etsy shop and sales go toward helping shelter animals.  I have purchased the Fur-ever Calendar and love it.   Will you help too?

https://www.etsy.com/shop/MontyJewelry

Please keep sweeeet Monty Boy Cat in your thoughts / prayers / healing …. as he has trouble at the moment with his kidneys.

I wrote the following poem for Monty Boy.

POEM FOR MONTY

You can follow Monty’s story on Facebook, and the FB videos will show you just how much Monty and Michael love each other.  This love is awe inspiring and touching.  Once you have met Monty Boy, you will never see an animal friend again as “just a pet”.  They are not pets owned by us,   WE  are owned by them, THEY grace us with their joyous, stoic and honest presence.

https://www.facebook.com/Montyboycat/

Thank you Monty Boy Cat.  We love you.

Our beautiful boy Shandy   passed away  on 24 February 2016 at 2.34 pm.

Those who know me well, understand that I believe in a “bigger world” than what there seems.  I believe all Life forms are spiritual beings or sparks of consciousness from the “Divine” or the Source, incarnated into physical forms.

I believe that our Shandy cat was a special Be-ing sent to us, to keep us together and to teach us responsibility and how to Love.  One month has passed now since he departed us, and his messages are still coming in strong.  First of all, let me say that I once experienced a cat that had crossed over, returning in Spirit form, to let us know she was okay and in spirit form.   That was a long time ago, when I began looking into our spiritual essence and connections.  I am positive that Shandy cat will also visit me in Spirit, if I call upon him!
