It’s been quite awhile since I posted something non-cat related so I thought I would share a short excerpt from my upcoming book, Life Revealed:Letting Go of The “Get” Mentality.

Feral Cats & Adolescents: Not as Different as You Might Think!

I start every day on Periscope with a scope on spirituality however it often becomes live coaching and parenting was the coaching topic that arose a few days ago, specifically introverted teens.

What’s Your Hashtag?

So I’m wrapping up my self-care book for healers and helpers and it occurs to me I need to revamp it just a bit. In a conversation with my mom this morning about Periscope (get it, use it!) I’m yammering on and on about how I’ve thought for years that the Internet is our clumsy […]

I’ve never been able to find the words to describe the indescribable so haven’t offered much publicly until this year. Seriously though the more we learn about quantum physics and develop instruments to measure energy work I’m guessing […]

Stand Up Peeing! Who knew?

Catification is more than just shelves and fun stuff.  It’s about adapting to the needs of your cats as they age or when after you’ve observed them for awhile you note their preferences.   If they are all hogging one kind of bed then go get more of those.  We have hooded and non-hooded litter […]
