I had lovely feedback about my piece on “Miracles” in my New Years/Christmas letter and I’ve been thinking a lot about the subject ever since. We see so many seeming-miracles in the TTouch with all species. A requirement of the Tellington TTouch® certification training for Companion Animals is to write up case studies on dogs and kitties and sometimes bunnies, depending upon the future focus of the student. Here is a typical case study about two kitties by Corinne Cevaer-Corey after her 2nd week-long training.
Although most of us who work with cats find that they develop a level of trust that just seems impossible in such a short time, nevertheless, it so often seems like a miracle.
Even though I have been doing this work and teaching it and seeing such changes for more than 25 years, it is just as thrilling and I am just as grateful as I was the first time – perhaps even more so, for the fact that I feel so blessed each time.
Thank you, Corinne, for sharing these stories of the kitty at Best Friends in Utah, and your Padme and Leia.
This is a heart warming article by Sandy Robins* in CatFancy Magazine that really reveals how animals can be ambassadors for kindness and love if given the necessary assistance. In this case, Rita Brock, a South African lady who would not accept the word “no,” gave the assistance needed to bring feline animal ambassadors to a maximum secirity prison, where they helped to soften the hearts and minds of prisoners.
I am presenting this article here with Sandy’s permission.
