Rob saw Sancat peering out our window at a chirping Cardinal . "The cat is fully intent at all times. A cat relaxes into full intent even when asleep," Rob added. I grabbed my camera and captured the shot!
"Openness to What Is," Eckhart Tolle
* "The region in the brain responsible for emotions is identical in cats and humans."
** "Now is the moment that never ends", Deepak Chopra. "The past is gone, the future is not here, and now I am free of both. Where you are is point of arrival....Spirit is intuition." An intuitive being and creature lives in the now, receiving and maximizing the positive flow of the present.
Cats purr away to their heart's content, comforting and greeting each other and human companions. Some cats snuggle up with pet dogs or other animals. Sham, the Godolphin Arabian, had a pet cat! Mother cats purr at their kittens and the kittens respond. The purring is at a frequency of 50-70 Hz, the same frequency as an idling diesel engine. Purring resonates first in the diaphragm then spreads out over the entire cat. When Sancat sits on me and purrs, I can feel the vibration even in his paw pads, a therapeutic meditative moment. A purring cat is, I feel, hypnotising itself into a quiet state. A cat in pain or stress might also purr as self therapy. Animal connections may alter our neurochemistry for the better. Animals encourage us to relax and help us stay fit as we exercise and play with them.
* "Playing with your cat just ten minutes a day can dramatically improve his or her fitness level." Your mood will improve too! Walking your dog helps both of you.
