Love your cat back healing story, Becca. Thanks!

So cats truly are natural healers (and you thought they were just cuddly, fuzzy companions!).
So many wonderful stories! My little rescue cat Narni comforted me throughout my 2 pregnancies. Times when I feeling emotional or very tired or unwell she would lay above my head as I was in bed and purr very strongly, which would calm me to sleep. A few nights a go I was unwell with an illness and also feeling down. As I lay in bed to go to sleep she lay above my head, her chin touching my head and purred loudly. Such a beautiful little soul. She will rarely go to anyone else and is quite an anxious and shy cat so it makes me feel very special that she trusts me and wants to be my little healer.
Today I am going to talk about a super power that all cats possess – the power to heal.
The hieroglyphics are spells that were used to heal ailing cats. Most ask the Sun God Re to cure virtually any part of a sick cat’s body, including the heart, lungs, brain, legs, stomach and eyes. For example, one spell for the heart translates as: “You cat, your heart is the heart of Ptah, for he has ameliorated your heart from the bad poison that is in any limb of yours.” But I’m also talking about physical health as studied by science. And specifically about cats.Nanette, wow–what a great cat! Thank you for sharing your healing stories.Now there’s a testament to the healing power of cats, Donna!
Healing Hope Cat Sanctuary is a private, small, not for profit, absolutely no-kill cat sanctuary. We specialize in taking in cats that are not considered adoptable due to age, health issues or emotional problems. Most of the cats we take in, no other shelter would even consider. HOwever, we do have some adoptable cats and they are displayed here on Petfinders. We also are looking for long term FOSTER HOMES. (See below and under "Adopting a Friend"/If you are interested in fostering a kitty, please check out these cats: "Chelsey" and "Schotze". Both are loving, sweet low-maintenance, healthy cats. But because they are middle aged, they are not prime adoption candidates.If you are interested in fostering a kitty, please check out these cats: "Chelsey" and "Schotze". Both are loving, sweet low-maintenance healthy cats. But because they are middle aged, they are not prime adoption candidates.If you own a cat, you know that their purrs have the ability to soothe away hurts and anxieties and quickly help ease a bad mood. Cats have the ability to be more than just cute and funny little furry things; they are some of the most powerful healers out there. Talk to cat lovers and the evidence points to the fact that a cat’s purr actually heals and eases their owner’s pains. Although scientists debate the exact mechanism, one theory is that a cat’s purr is produced through a combination of the laryngeal and diaphragmatic muscles, plus their neural oscillator. Another common theory suggests that these lovely purrs are produced by their hyoid bone which located between the skull and the larynx. Read more here on understanding The power of a cat’s purr can be pure magic. Cats have evolved to be multi-functional creatures, and purring is one of their survival mechanism. Scratching marks territories, communicates conflicted feelings, and maintains claw health. Whiskers broadcast moods, feel wind directions, and help cats navigate. Purring helps newborns kittens survive, promotes kitty and owner healing, and is also a communication tool.It has long been speculated that pets are good for a person’s health. Stress relief and encouragement of a healthy lifestyle are commonly cited as two positive outcomes from owning a pet. But when it comes to cats, scientific evidence suggests that their purr can be specifically beneficial to their owner.
