Reiki for Cats

Reiki is a simple and gentle energy healing therapy, which anyone can do providing they have been attuned to Reiki by a Reiki Master.

It involves no manipulation, or prodding, pushing or pulling and no needles are used.

The gentle healing can only do good things for your cats.

Cats as well as many other animals love Reiki.

In many ways cats suffer from similar illnesses as us humans and Reiki can be used to help ease these conditions just as with people.

Reiki is a bit like having a good friend who is there for their comfort. Cats respond very well to Reiki healing – they seem to sense that humans are helping them. Your cat is highly likely to be the same.

During a Reiki healing session even the liveliest of cats usually become calm and relaxed – leading the way for us humans to follow! It is quite unusual to find a cat that doesn’t welcome Reiki energy, even though they might need to get used to it first.

Most animals are very intuitive and so although you can’t explain to them what Reiki is they can sense there is something positive there that’s not harmful to them.

Reiki is a holistic therapy helping to heal your cat as a whole simultaneously.

  • physical level

With the potential to complement prescribed medication and help reduce all kinds of pain and helping to speed up the body’s natural healing process, which can be useful following an accident or recovery from surgery

  • psychological level

Cats can suffer from stress, fears, anxiety and depression just as humans do. Reiki can help instil calm, letting go of tension or anxiety, reducing the feelings of stress and help to overcome such distressing conditions such as noise and firework phobias.

Reiki healing is suitable for domestic pet cats and professionally bred animals and so some Reiki could help your cat whether it is your beloved companion or if you work with animals and you are a professional breeder, or groomer.

Reiki for Dog Groomers

Do you find it difficult to groom stressed or anxious dogs?

Most groomers do … so you aren’t alone …. and every groomer has difficult dogs to groom. I’m sure you do too?

Maybe you have dogs that are really nervous and don’t like being bathed … or hate the dryer and literally shake on the grooming table? I know I’ve seen it happen many times.

Or perhaps they won’t keep still and constantly fidget about whilst you try to brush or trim their coats.

Worse still maybe they become aggressive and try to bite you!

All of this makes your job doubly difficult …. is stressful for your dog client and stressful for you too.

However, there is a solution that can help you to help your nervous or agitated dogs and make your job a whole lot easier too.IMG_2749

Don’t Hire Just Anyone to Pet Sit

With more pet-sitting options and numerous online pet-sitter directories, you will need to be more prudent in your search for reliable pet care. It is important that you practice due diligence to ensure that you are using the services of a true professional pet sitter.

3. Can the pet sitter provide proof of clear criminal history?  Remember, the person you choose to hire will have access to your property and your beloved animal companion(s). Ask for third-party credentials that verify the sitter has a history of honesty and integrity. This documentation can provide the peace of mind you seek when admitting a new pet-care provider to your home.

The contract includes all fees along with the expected amount of time that will be spent with your pet(s). This ensures that both you and your sitter have agreed on and understand the level of service being provided in your absence.

Experience in caring for special needs pets or various types of pets is helpful if that is what you need.

Most pets require at least 2-3 visits per day if you are out of town.
Does the pet sitter have a website that you may peruse?  Many pet sitters have business websites to communicate with current and potential clients. It is an excellent way to provide information to pet owners and to offer the option of e-mail communication between owners and sitters.
What contingency plan does the pet sitter have in the event of inclement weather or natural disaster while caring for your pet(s)?  Every professional pet sitter should have a written disaster plan that addresses natural or man-made disasters, as well as a contingency plan to provide for your pet’s care if anything prevents the sitter from completing the assignment.
What does the pet sitter do if medical care is needed for your pet?  Arrangements should be made with your veterinarian and/or local emergency veterinary clinic to allow the sitter to seek medical attention for your pet while you are away.
How does the pet-sitting business screen and train their pet sitters?  When a pet-sitting business owner uses staff sitters, a careful employment screening process should be used to ensure that any of the company’s staff sitters who care for your pet are trained and equipped to provide the high-quality care you and your pet deserve.
