By now everyone has heard of Cesar Millan, the Dog Whisperer. But I will bet you have never heard of Cat Whisperers! Cat Whisperers are people that just have a natural alignment and connection with cats. Cats are drawn to these people quite naturally and instinctively trust them.
Cats that have been abandoned, lost or Ferals will find their way to these people’s door. You can’t be “trained” as a cat whisperer, it’s something that certain people are just born and blessed with. It’s an innate understanding and an inner ability to win the trust of kitties that are emotionally torn up.
Cats that have been deserted, abused, even tortured have no trust in people and are extremely afraid of us. Cat whisperers know when these cats show up looking for food are still extremely leary. They understand that it will take some time for these kitties to allow them to get close to them and actually pet them. Just leaving food and speaking very softly to these cats will instill a trust over time. These cats, in most cases, are emotionally damaged although they physically appear quite healthy.
Since I was a very small child I have loved animals and had that special something that animals trust. I am a Cat Whisperer! I have rescued, fed and lived with many abandoned cats and sadly lost many along the way to the cruelty of others or nature’s coarse.
Within their sad eyes, I see a want for love, protection and shelter from the storm. Although I have lost many cats that one day just never returned, I have gained so much within myself from caring for these kitties.
Once they have trusted me and return every day, they also bring their friends and the cycle starts all over. Feral cats run a different gambit then abandoned cats, many times they do not want to live in doors. My friend Jake, who I lost some time ago was feral and would come inside during storms but always wanted back out.
Jake was always waiting for me every day morning, noon and night. Like a little guard at the gate he would faithfully await my return.
I wrote a poem for Jake after I lost him, I hope you will read it and leave me your thoughts.
Cat Whisperers know who they are and those reading this know what I’m talking about. I do believe that if you love cats, care for cats and realize homeless cats have fears and a need for love, you Are a Cat Whisperer and Will Soon Will Be!
God Bless All Who Care For Animals.
