My Little Cat, A Heartbeat On My Lap


Had a rough couple of days at work. 12 hour day shifts at the factory, and it’s ”stop week”, which means the whole factory shuts down for a little over a week for repairments, improvements and what not.


Been days of working out on the floor getting everything emptied and safe to work on, as well as a lot of mechanics work for me… add that to nights of insomnia and you’ve got yourself a one fucking mess of Kattis over here.


It’s now 1:35 a.m. and I’m unwinding with some red wine, watching a lovely movie with Jane Fonda and Robert Redford on Netflix.


Cats are so magical and mysterious – and they have healing powers.


My body was aching a lot when I got home, but you know what’s made it better? My cats. I kid you not. For real, our feline friends provide us with more than just emotional support. A cat purrs within a frequency range of 20-140 Hertz, and if you are in physical contact with them as they do, humans are actually therapeutically benefiting from these vibrations. Purring has been linked to lowering stress and blood preassure, decreasing symptoms of Dyspnoea, lessening the chances of having a heart attack, and even strengthening bones.


Kind of mindblowing, it is. Frequencies of 25 and 50 Hz are the best for healing and strengthening bones, but 100 and 200 Hz are good too.  Purr vibrations help healing infection and swelling. They are also helpful for healing soft tissue, and easing pain in muscles and tendons and ligament injuries. So… my evening. Surrounded by my lovely lil soulmates in furr, Tyson (the 15 year old gentleman) and Tuta (the 7 year old black warrior beauty). And the ache I had earlier? So much better thanks to them blessing me with their vibrations.

I’ve run out of human soulmates. Oh well. Who needs humans when there are cats and dogs?
