   Testimonial:
  TTOUCH HELPS TAME A FERAL CAT GIVING BIRTH
Testimonial By: Rozanna Scorgie        Publish Date: 2003-07-01

Dear Eugenie
 
As I related to you last week at the circles meeting, I work at a country hotel where we often have feral cats around, some of them having decided to make their home in and around the premises.  A colleague and myself have managed to catch a number of these cats and had them neutered/spayed and returned to the hotel.  However there is one female cat we named "Mommy" simply because we could never catch her to have her spayed and consequently she is often pregnant, which adds to our population.  This was again the case this past month.
 
On Friday 16 May 2003, as usual I went to feed the cats, including "Mommy", that hang around the swimming pool area.  I noticed she did not jump off the chair she was on to get her food.  On approaching her I noticed she was starting to go into labour.  I stayed with her during the birth, talking softly to her and gently doing some TTouch circles up and down her back the whole time.  Naturally she could not attempt to escape from me during her labour but as since then become a totally new pussycat.
 
She no longer runs away when we approach her and although she still does not want to be picked up, she will rub herself against me, purrs most of the time and is even willing to let me pick up a kitten or two.
 
Whenever I ’visit’ her, (she is currently being kept in the Housekeeper’s office) I do some more TTouch for her and have also started TTouch on the kittens, doing very gentle, small circles.
 
Once again, TTouch has brought a little magic into my life and especially into Mommy’s life.
 
THANK YOU
ROZANNA SCORGIE
