I had a very traumatic experience today! Little Oliver, the cat who will turn 19 years old this month had an accident! My loving husband had just left the house...maybe 15 minutes or so when I decided to go out by the pool and have a cigarette. YES...The Desert Rose smokes! (only get to have one or 2 a day....but will indulge if my Loving husband is away!) As I walked out the door towards my favorite smoking chaise lounge...I saw something out of the corner of my eye in the pool. My first thought was...Henry the Duck that frequents our pool. Upon 2nd look I realized it was a cat. I have had to grab stray cats from the pool before...and throw them out quickly before they kill me. Only this cat...was MINE!!! My Little Oliver was in the pool swimming at the far end near the hot tub close to the water fall. I yelled "Oliver" and ran to the end of the pool and reached out and grabbed him just as he was going threw the waterfall. I threw off my robe and wrapped him up. He was breathing very hard and shivering. I ran into the house with him and got a pool towel to dry him off. He was literally a drowned cat! I kept drying him and got out the blow dryer which he tolerated very well. He was still wet but not soaking wet, when I called "The Doc" to discuss whether I should bring him in. Since his breathing was back to normal now Doc said just to keep him as warm as I could and get him dry and watch him...if a change for the worse he could meet us. The Doc said Oliver had had enough stress for one day! I put Oliver's down blanket in the dryer and wrapped him up and got into my bed with the covers over us. He was still shivering on and off. I did this for the next 2 hours until he was almost dry. Then I let him down to see how he was. He seemed fine and was starved!
Little Oliver can hardly walk anymore...he is quite wobbly and eats his food and water lying down. He is however very happy and doing well despite all his medical issues. What I can't figure out is how he got to the end of the pool swimming!!! He must have fell in near the other end trying to drink from the pool! My Homeopath/Animal Communicator Vet says Oliver has really strong energy/ life flow. I also do not know how long he had been in the pool. Maybe he was on his second lap around???
Since the Passing of my brother-in law I have seemed to have negative energy/karma around me. At the NFR I was constantly having trouble and thought my sisters would distance themselves from me. I lost my voice, my drivers license, my flight home got cancelled not to mention 100 other little annoying things. However...I now feel that my energy/karma flow has changed. The timing of me being able to save Little Oliver was probably a 2 to 3 minute time span because of his condition...and now Oliver still has 3 of his nine lives left!!!
I could not sleep last night...my mind kept wandering to the loss of other beloved animals during my life...so I was up very late. I know you all have experienced the loss of your beloved animals and so you know how bad my night was...but this morning when I got up Little Oliver was dry and warm and very happy to see...his breakfast!
Your Desert Rose!
