I love talking about cats with Dr. Rachel Geller - We both want cats to be in loving and healthy homes for their full life cycles and this is why we are both incredibly committed to providing our listeners with information that will keep both the humans and the cats happy. The key take away from this episode is that it ALL starts with the choices made by the human. Every action leads to a reaction, response or consequence...so in this episode we discover why your cat does certain things and why it may be you and not your cat (most of the time:) The Guest House This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all! Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still, treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in. Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond. by Rumi (Taken from SELECTED POEMS by Rumi, Translated by Coleman Barks - Penguin Classics, 2004).
