How Mr. Bing survived a major move

Energy healing, diet and essential oils maintain quality of life with chronic illness.

Mr. Bing is thriving, active and happy – STILL!

In July 2012 my cat, Mr. Bing, was diagnosed with Hypercalcemia (too much Calcium in the blood). He was losing weight quickly, had diarrhea and occasional vomiting.  I made the decision to treat him with complimentary approaches rather than submit him to surgery, chemo and ongoing medical care.  Read earlier blog entries to see his progress.

Last March I reported that Bing had steadily become stronger and was nearly back to his old self.  He had gained most of his weight back and was playing and happy again.

I am delighted to report he is still doing very well.  At his August checkup his vet said he would likely live several more years!  That’s far more than the one year she thought when he was diagnosed in 2012.

We decided he was healthy enough to withstand a move and I drove him 600 mile to live with my daughter and her cat.  He did well on the car ride with me and loved sitting on the console so he could pop up and look out.  He had easy access to his litter box since he needs to go frequently and I did extra energy healing, Kitty Raindrop Therapy with essential oils and Rescue Remedy in front of his ear to keep him calm.

He took several weeks to adjust to the new environment, but my daughter continued with Rescue Remedy and discovered he really liked the food she had for her cat so started feeding him that.  It must have something he needed because he really goes after it.  My daughter even taught him high-five using the food nuggets!

I was very sad for him to go, yet I knew he’d have a good home and another kitty companion.  Just a week before his move my 19 year old cat Oreo decided it was time to go. We both missed her deeply.

How did Mr. Bing go from 8 pounds to 11?

A year ago, in my last blog, Mr. Bing was hanging in there, affectionate and occasionally perky, yet very slowly losing ground.  His weight was 7.5-8.0 pounds.  Now, one year later, Bing is now 11 pounds, plays like a young cat and demands attention and cuddles.  How did that happen with this chronic disease?

It is clear he still has the disease.  I still notice a few symptoms of the disease (loose stools and high respiration levels).  Yet he has steadily become stronger and back to his old self.  His diet is still grain free and includes a daily pro-biotic.  I also added micro algae in November and this brought his energy level up and he started playing more.  I continue energy healing (acupressure and Reiki) as well.   He continues to amaze me and affirm the healing work I do with him.  Thank you, Mr. Bing!

Energy healing and essential oils: a cost effective way to maintain and improve health! – August 2013

We are now a year plus past his diagnosis and Mr. Bing is holding his own at 9 pounds, playing again and comes to me when he wants healing.   Neither my vet nor I expected him to live this long since Hypercalcemia is very hard on the internal organs. His only symptoms are loose stools, as the disease seems to affect his digestion most.  He is his old affectionate, outgoing self.  And discovered newspaper and ribbon as his favorite toys.  He reads the travel section mostly 🙂

What happened since my last post in February when Mr. Bing was having a small setback?   He recovered from the setback quickly.  He seemed to figure out he needed to drink more water to dilute the calcium and pass the excess in his urine (I should buy stock in kitty litter!).  He has stayed hydrated and maintained his weight very well over the past 5 months.  He lost some interest in the Brushtail food and I stopped feeding it to him in May when it was no longer available.  I have been feeding him a tuna and lamb wet food and he loves that.  He eats consistently with relish, begging for food.

I give him regular Acupressure and Reiki when he wants it and daily Essential Oil Raindrop Therapy with an extra oil for diarrhea.    Mr Bing of course loves summer and being able to be on the deck or lay on the grass.

I will post an update if things change.  Meanwhile I am totally sold on energy healing and essential oils as a cost effective way to maintain and improve health!
