It is true you know cat's do have magical healing powers otherwise why would mother nature give them the ability to help folks who are ill, take for instance myself a strong strapping lad of 60 who was busy painting a ceiling one morning singing as I went on my way until I had a pain in my arm then my chest then a massive heart attack.
The cat smudge had been purring and meowing for a while making circles around the step ladders I was using at the time, she could not…Continue
