Hello MY Darlings (smirking).
Well you thought I'd NEVER ASK, the obvious question! What about relaxation? Mother nature gave this to cats on a 'purfect platter'. Never ask pur-mission just take it ....like YOU own it!
I've had lots of emails coming across by busy PAWS DESK on dealing with relaxation and personal relationships. I had to get MY Secretary to sit on the papers as there were so many. The whirling of the printer was giving such a headache even my whiskers hurt. EXIT to my secret 'cat door flap' (I use this as a back door, so patients don't see my entering into the front door of the office)!
Stretching I ordered my large saucer of milk. I had a feeling it was going to be one of those days! My whiskers tell me so....vibrate+ radar =cat sense. MY Secretary is trained so we don't have to natter.......all done by intuition! That tuned in feeling... LOL)!
|Step 1: Gently in hail through the nose|
I employed a few facial expressions (breaking the ice just to make him laugh) I'd used this 1000 of times on patients!!
|Step 3: roll it around your face - relax|
|Step: 2 inhail gently|
|Step 4: Let yourself GO|
I had MY secretary record the session (permission given by Mr. B). She came in on my paw cue. The electric bed hummed lowered to the floor , I said to him. "we don't want you to fall off". I will check on you in 20 minutes". I trotted into my office, then lapped a small bowl of milk, to gather my focus.
(Chortling) I observed patient through the two way mirror. His front and back paws flat out....he looked like road kill (sorry the only metaphor I could think of LOL).
He had to turn over...lowering himself onto his belly. His right paw out to steady himself. Zoooooooop......to our complete surprise .....the table started to MOVE OUT from THE WALL????? The gap got wider and wider!!! Cooly I meowed...... "Secretary, grab his back paw gently." He was like a amoeba sliding off a slippery rock!!!! Bullump.......... he slid onto the floor wedging himself between the table and wall. It was like trying to hold onto wet spaghetti.
We got him a 'cat-cat' and called an hour later...........................

Lesson of the day: Humility often comes at surprising times, both for patient and practitioner alike.........if should happen to YOU...SIMPLY LET IT GO!!!
Move on, get those PAWS moving and chase a few BIRDS.....
Hindsight is often 20/20 mixed in with grace....
See you next time MY DARLINGS...........^..^
