Pet Health and Paws-itvity
Thinking back on this last year and my poor wee girl, Chili’s illnesses, it brings to mind the proverbial barn door and horses. So many “could have, would have, and should have’s” been done so much differently…if only I had known.

Still, lessons have been learned, after the fact, naturally, then another old adage about hindsight springs to mind as well. Is there a point or a positive outcome to my mental self-flagellation? Absolutely not. Still, we humans do this, don’t we?
A positive outlook feels ever so much better than does the weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth caused by overt guilting of one’s self. Anybody whom is familiar with the Seven Laws of Attraction knows that what you think is what you get. It’s a struggle some days but I choose to be positive. I think it makes all the difference.
Does this tell you things are all tickety-boo? Hardly! Oh, there are constant worries, constant re-evaluation of priorities (my list of at least 10 priorities per day shifts sequence constantly), consistently new problems rearing their ugly heads. No, life is not charmed for me but positivity makes it bearable.
What has this to do with my dear pet’s health? Everything! When the pet mum or dad is positive, the pet is positive. When I hold my dear kitty close, she can feel my serenity and my belief in her. When I am being positive, she eats better which is essential to her health. When I talk to her in a positive tone, I know she understands the importance of what I’m saying. She thrives by my positivity.
I know that many who read this are going through the wars with their own dear pets and health issues. It’s one of the hardest things to go through apart from your children’s illnesses. Whilst I don’t suggest anything that should be used in place of proper Veterinarian care, it is vital to you and your pet to be positive always. Light candles, meditate, self-talk, positive affirmations, all things which can help you to relax and feel more …well…positive!
Have faith in yourself – I believe in you. And so does your pet. Paws-itively!
