An animal-loving woman had taken in a stray cat some time ago, who brought four kittens in her little belly. Kiti's rescuer was about to move house, so she asked Gut Aiderbichl Deggendorf to take in Kiti and her four kittens. So the little cat family came to Gut Aiderbichl Deggendorf about three months ago, and the work could begin.
Kiti and her kittens were examined by the vet, who unfortunately found a virus. The situation was difficult, the four little kittens very weak and on top of that Kiti refused to give the boys a drink. One could think that the natural instinct was switched on, which is: I give you back to nature.
The animal keepers fought for the survival of the four kittens, fed them with the pipette and, after a short time, Kiti also let the four drink again. Unfortunately, three baby cats did not survive the fight against the virus. Only one sibling survived: Leonia, which means "lioness". In the truest sense of the word, Leonia fought together with the nurses for her continued life, and she was to win.
Cats have seven lives
is what they say in the vernacular. Skillfully, they always escape the small obstacles that can sometimes end their lives. People observed that cats in case of a fall always land on their paws. When a cat falls, it turns while falling, so that it lands with its paws on the ground. Their supple joints cushion an impact. However, if there is not enough time for the body to turn, the cat can also be seriously injured.
The necessary healing power
after falls or diseases the cat carries in itself
Cats like Leonia are survivors. When cats have broken bones or other illnesses, they heal them their purr. How does it work? The purring spreads a pleasant mood, the purring frequency ensures that broken bones and other injuries quicklyer heal again. The frequency of purring is also transmitted to sick people. When was the last time a purring cat sat on your chest, lay on your belly? They feel in which place the human being is not doing so well, and lies down there. Is this now mysticism or is the cat also a special "human healer"?
Neutering the cat prevents much suffering among animals
For several months now, Gut Aiderbichl's animal emergency center has been virtually assaulted with requests for stray cats and their kittens. Many cats would not have to roam around looking for food and shelter for themselves and their young, if cat owners would take care of their neutering. Many cats would also be in better health if cat owners regularly consulted the vet, could detect possible diseases at an early stage and so medical help could preserve the life of the animals.
