Starlight and Echo – A Reincarnation Comparison

Is Reincarnation Real?

Echo was a beautiful grey Arabian Mare and when she ran her long mane flew like a sail.

Echo as a horse.

Starlight is Echo's Soul Extension living as a Siamese cat.

Starlight is Echo’s Soul Extension.

For some, no proof is possible.

For others, a “knowing” is all they need.

In 2005, my horse friend, Echo, extended some of her consciousness into a kitten body.

She told me ahead of time that she was coming to be a cat with me.

On the day the kitten was born, she announced herself telepathically to the Siamese breeder, saying, “Echo.  I come.”

That same morning, I heard Echo say to me, “I’m blind.”  “Kittens are born with their eyes closed,” I told her.

“I have toes,” she murmured with curious delight as she wiggled them.

Horses feet are actually a single toe, anatomically speaking.

Echo had told me a few weeks prior to this that the kitten would be Siamese, female, and arrive at the same cattery where Violet, my other Siamese, had been born.

The breeder was easily able to identify the kitten that was Echo.  Some friends picked her up for me when she was 9 weeks old.

Over the past 5 years, I’ve delighted in Starlight.

I’ve also discovered what I personally consider to be “evidence” of Echo’s presence as Starlight.

Clearly a cat body and a horse body are different.  Some of the similarities described here have been adapted for differences in size, structure, and species.

In each instance of , I observed the essence of the individual.

  1. Starlight arrived with her lower back very tight and some misalignment just above the sacrum.  This exactly matched an injury Echo had in the last year of her life that we never fully resolved.  It has since been treated with chiropractic and resolved in Starlight.

  2. Starlight’s hind end is more typical of an equine structure than a feline one.  My chiropractic veterinarian pointed this out to me.

  3. Starlight instantly recognized a song I used to sing to Echo while I rode her.  It was “You Are My Shining Star” – which is, I’m told by Echo, where Starlight’s name came from.  I hadn’t made the connection with the song until after Starlight was already with me.  I played it one day on the computer while she was in my arms, and her eyes lit up with recognition.

  4. Echo loved to jump cavaletti and logs and even thin branches lying on a trail.  My TV tables have a bar between the legs that look very much like cavaletti, and Starlight, as a small kitten, would run and jump over them just for the fun of it.

  5. Starlight is very compassionate, sweet, and filled with joy, as was Echo.  Like Echo, she is very gentle and loving, and kind, and spiritually advanced.

  6. Starlight is very funny, especially when she is playing.  She’s the only cat I’ve ever seen who, like a cartoon character, can start to run in place before taking off.   Echo also had a  sense of humor and liked to out-wit me and other people.

  7. Starlight hates conflict and will leave, rather than fight or stand up for herself.  Echo was the bottom of the equine pecking order and avoided conflict by leaving situations where they was conflict.  She would take care of another horse who was injured rather than try to drive them from the herd.

  8. Echo had large solid feet for a horse her size.  Horse’s feet are actually a single toe.  Starlight has unusually big toes.   When she was a kitten, it was very hard to find her tiny claws to clip them.  They’re easier to find now, but her toes are still impressive for her size.

  9. Echo had big, soft, gentle brown eyes.  Starlight has big, soft, blue eyes, with love pouring out of them.

    Look deeply into her eyes. Feel the Love.

  10. Echo used to shed nearly all year round, which is unusual for horses, who usually just shed in the spring and the fall.  Starlight also seems to shed all year round, which is just as unusual for a cat.

  11. Starlight likes to groom me by licking my hair, just like one cat grooming another.  Echo used to wiggle her muzzle on the back of my head and on my hair, as if I were a horse.

  12. Echo was a grey horse – a horse born a darker color who grey’s out.  Starlight is a blue-point Siamese, with her predominant color being grey.  This may be coincidence, but since Starlight kept changing colors for many months before settling on this one, I believe she chose it, and the breeder confirmed that some kittens do “choose” the color they want to be after trying out different Siamese shades.

  13. When Echo told me she was coming as Starlight, she said, “now you can carry me.”  One of Starlight’s favorite games is to jump into a tote bag so I can carry her upstairs from the basement.

  14. When Violet and Sakhara were alive, Starlight would always let them eat first, even tho’ she had her own bowl of food.  Echo was the same way when fed with other horses, always taking the bottom position in the pecking order.  Starlight still does this with Melissa, who is 2.5 years younger than Starlight.

  15. Echo, and horses in general, prefer jumping up to jumping down.  Starlight doesn’t mind jumping up on things, but jumping down is difficult for her if she’s more than 3-4 feet up, such as on the refrigerator.  And Starlight can barely even conceive of jumping to heights that Melissa thinks are ordinary, such as 5 feet up or higher, because she can’t imagine how she would get down.

  16. Echo was always very careful to put her feet only on solid ground, as horses don’t like unsteady footing.  Starlight, too, is careful of footing.  Unlike most cats who love soft cushions and pillows, she won’t step onto anything that moves around under her feet.

So as you can see, there is a very long list of characteristics that Starlight and Echo share.  While this may not constitute “proof” to anyone, to me it is evidence that supports my original experience, i.e., Echo telling me she was coming back to me as a Siamese cat.

Of course, I don’t need any external proof at all.  I can FEEL that they are the same being.  And that’s all I need, personally speaking.

My horse came back as a cat, and my internal “truth testing” center confirms it.

After all, I’m telepathic with animals and have been that way my whole life.

Did one of your animal reincarnate?  How did you recognize him or her?

In Memoriam: Violet

In Memoriam, Violet

A CAT FOR ALL SEASONS

Violet reincarnated to be with me for 4 lifetimes.  At the close of this life, I want to honor all 4 incarnations of this amazing being.

If you’re not sure you believe in reincarnation, this memorial might give you some food for thought.

FIRST LIFETIME

In her first life with me, Violet was a black and white male cat my sisters and I named Felix, after the cartoon character.  It was a short life, and that’s all I remember about it.  We had many cats, all of whom lived outside with shelter in the garage.

SECOND LIFETIME

In her second life with me, Violet was a muted tortoiseshell named Sappho.  She was very Siamese-like, with larger ears and a dominant attitude.  We were very, very close.

She was born in Maine at one of my sister’s homes and we bonded on the long car trip home.

We were together for 7 years until my life took me away to find out who I was.  Sappho went to live with someone else.  She left her body soon after.

THIRD LIFETIME — A POWERFUL REUNION

Violet in her 3rd lifetime.

Violet sitting on the back stoop.  She was terribly cross-eyed, but still gorgeous.

In her third life with me, Violet came as a blue point Siamese rescued from the streets.  She was nearly half starved.  When I got her home, she settled onto my heart center, and I instantly recognized her as having been Sappho.

Violet was terrified of going out on the stoop, so one day I carried her outside.  Her fear and panic were palpable.  This is how I learned that she had been picked up and put outside and abandoned.

So the healing began around that, too.  Soon she felt comfortable sitting on the back stoop, where I would sit with her so she never felt abandoned.

Violet assigned herself the role of my personal supervisor, whether I wanted one or not.

If I was sick, she would never leave my side.  If I got out of bed for tea or soup, she would run up and down the stairs demanding vocally and telepathically that I “get back in that bed so I can heal you.”

Unfortunately, Violet never fully recovered from the stress and damage she had gone through on the streets.  She also had powerful emotional debris around my leaving her and keeping Echo, my Arabian horse, who had been with me during Violet’s previous life with me.

Echo was still with me when Violet came back, and Violet’s jealousy was intense.  When Echo was euthanized in 1998, Violet announced, “I’m in charge of your life now.

Three days later, Echo visited in spirit and Violet, mortified, became seriously ill.  I nursed her diligently for 10 months, but she wasn’t strong enough to recover.  She had been with me only 4 and a half years.  Her jealously had turned into leukemia.

FOURTH, MOST RECENT LIFETIME

Violet as a kitten.

Violet “walked in”  to become a Siamese kitten again.

Five days after being euthanized in August, 1999, Violet showed up in spirit and began demanding that we plan her return together.  She insisted on coming back through a Siamese cattery.  She completely orchestrated her return as a female, Siamese Blue Point kitten.

The week I expected her to be born, she “walked in” to the body of an 8-week old female and began screaming at the humans who were considering her for another family.  The previous personality had been very demure, so the sudden change in behavior got the attention of the breeder at Reprise Siamese.  They called and asked me to speak with the upset baby.

As soon as I connected with the kitten, I heard:

VIOLET:  “Where are you?  Come get me!  They want to give me to someone else.”

NEDDA:  “Calm down Violet.  You’ve made your point.  I’ll come get you in a few days.”

I was late arriving to pick up Violet, who sat by the front door of the cattery the entire morning waiting for me.  The breeder said she would stand up on her tiny legs and try to look out through the screen door.  When I came in the house, she took off running through the cattery crying, “She’s here!  She’s here!”

When we got home, Violet stepped out of the cat carrier as though she had just been away for a short car trip.  She recognized where she was immediately.  She took over the house as if she had never left.  She knew where the food was, where the litter box was, and despite being very tiny, made it up the stairs to claim her place in “her” bed where she allowed me sleep.

Sakhara was here to greet Violet that first day.  Sakhara took one look at her as she emerged from the cat carrier, and said, “You need a bath,” whereupon a protesting kitten was thoroughly washed.

Thus began the nearly 18 years of Violet’s fourth lifetime with me.

— SANDY

Sandy, the male kitten Violet rejected.

Sandy, about 10 months old when I caught him.

Violet never wanted another cat in my life.  I was grateful she had allowed Sakhara to come.  We had discussed this while Violet was still in spirit, and she had given permission for me to bring Sakhara home.

In 2004, I used a Have-a-Heart trap to catch a young, grey tiger, male I named Sandy.  He had been abandoned in the neighborhood, and I had been feeding him and other feral cats in the back yard.

Violet was furious and insanely jealous.  She attacked Sandy constantly as I tried to integrate him, and I found the tip of his tail bleeding several times.

Then, Violet stopped eating.  She was fretting, running up and down the stairs, and losing weight.  So I gave up any attempts to integrate Sandy, and found him another home.

— STARLIGHT ARRIVES

After Violet’s intense reaction to Sandy, you can imagine my concerns when Echo announced in 2012 that she was coming back to me as a kitten.

Would Violet welcome Echo back in any form?

Could they learn to live together?

Fortunately for all of us, Violet agreed that Starlight could come.  She and Sakhara had actual meetings about it.  I walked into a room one day where the two of them were “in conference” about the kitten who would soon arrive.  They shooed me out, as this was “private.”

The two adult cats decided that Violet would take the lead in integrating Starlight and teaching her “how to be a cat.”  Starlight immediately fell in love with Violet and totally acquiesced to Violet’s authority.  This made it easy for Violet to accept her.

Starlight says:

I love Violet.  She was a wonderful teacher.  I think she was mystified because I always wanted to play and she was so serious, but she was also very patient with me, and very loving, too.

Violet gave me a lot of rules of follow, but then her heart softened and she forgave Echo.  Once that happened, she was more generous about allowing me to do things, like sit in Nedda’s lap in the living room to be brushed.

I miss Violet very much and hope to speak with her soon.

— TIME TO SAY GOODBYE

And now it’s time to say goodbye to Violet yet again.  Not easy to do at all.

Violet in 2015

Violet in 2015.

Violet was named for the Violet Flame or Violet Ray which is guarded by Ascended Master St. Germain.  She is a very advanced healer, which she demonstrated many times both in caring for me and others, and helping me do healings for clients.

If I hadn’t been telepathic with animals, I never would have known Violet’s sense of humor.  Her wise cracks and cryptic remarks often caused me to burst with peals of laughter.

For example,

I’m taking a bath.  The bathroom is located off a hall that goes between 2 bedrooms.  Violet is going up and back between the two rooms calling for me.

The door to the bathroom is open, so I can see and hear Violet as she goes by.

NEDDA:  “Violet, what are you doing?”

VIOLET:  “I’m playing hide and seek.”

NEDDA:  “Who are you playing with?”

VIOLET:  “You.”

NEDDA:  “Violet, you know I’m in the bathtub.”

VIOLET:  “Yes, but I don’t like getting wet, so I’m looking for you out here.”

There’s no question in my mind that Violet is a strong minded, strong willed soul who insisted on doing things her own way.  Sakhara often sat back and watched us argue about things, refusing to get involved.

She smashed a lovely 14″ porcelain statue of Quan Yin because I wasn’t paying attention to her despite her demands for me to leave the computer.

She bit both ears of a lovely statue of the Egyption cat goddess, Bast.

Violet loved to sit in my lap, to constantly touch me, and be close.  She was very good at claiming me.  Violet had a great deal of tenacity, and what she wanted, she usually got because she never, ever gave up.

Sakhara, being an expert mother cat, allowed Violet to do whatever she wanted.  This contributed to Sakhara not having much cuddling for herself.

It took both Sakhara and me to raise Violet, who was very active.  As my “Supervisor” she went everywhere I went in the house.  When repairmen came she would inspect them, their tools, and everything they did.  It all had to meet with her approval.

As a kitten, Violet would wrestle with Sakhara, who was a much larger cat than a Siamese.

“Moma” Sakhara would hold Violet down, being the adult, and Violet would scream as though she were being murdered.  As soon as she got free, she would jump on Sakhara’s head as if nothing had happened.

I asked her about this one day, and she said, “My scream is like the sounds made in Karote, the equivalent of ‘Hai Yah!'”  I had to laugh.  It sounded nothing like that to my human ears, but what did I know?

— THE END TIMES

For the last 3 years of her life, Violet was in renal failure.  I managed her health with lots of love, a natural electrolyte mix, and various other holistic remedies.  In addition, she had chiropratic whenever she needed it.

Because of a bad reaction to a rabies vaccine when Violet was about 4 years old, she was chronically constipated her whole life.  This got worse with the kidney failure, and in the last few months made things very uncomfortable for her.  While I never gave up trying to find a solution to all this, time wore her body down.

So on Tuesday, July 11, 2017, when Sakhara and I and our veterinarian, Dr. Amy Matthews of Animal Wellness in East Granby, CT, made the appointment for Sakhara’s euthaniasia at my home, I got off the phone, and turned immediately to speak with Violet, lying comfortably in one of the cat beds on the bay window ledge.  I spoke to her quietly.

“Violet.  Please consider what I’m about to tell you.”

Violet lifted her head and looked right at me.

“Amy is coming Thursday evening, two nights from now, and Sakhara will be helped to leave her body.  She’s ready and wants to go and wants help to do it.

“I love you very much and I don’t want to rush you to leave.  However, I do encourage you to think about leaving when Sakhara does on Thursday.

“Your body is really struggling, and I’m not sure you’re able to make it comfortably until next week.  Amy won’t be able to come back a second time before then, and the last thing I want for you is a trip to an emergency vet.

“I don’t want you to be in terrible pain, and I would take you if you need to go.  But I’m really OK if you want to leave when Sakhara leaves.”

Violet put her head back down and closed her eyes.  She said nothing at all, but I could feel her considering the situation.

The next morning, Violet ate, and then vomited her entire breakfast.  She refused any more food.

On Thursday morning, Violet stopped drinking water.  I could feel the shift in her.  She was already beginning the process of departure.

Violet was euthanized that evening right after Sakhara.

Her spirit was already expanded 2 feet out from her body before she was given the injection.

Her guides where there to welcome her and take her home.

What I Learned – A Reincarnation Adventure

December 9, 2012 by  
Filed under Animal Communication, New Posts

Starlight chewing my shirt button.

As of now, for all intents and purposes, Starlight has been integrated into our family.  There are still some rough spots, but overall, I have 3 happy cats who appreciate and love each other.

How did this get accomplished?

I’m not sure I can answer this question completely, but the lessons I learned are important for others to consider when adding a new animal family member.

  1. Get everyone to buy into the addition in advance.If you bring home a new cat or other animal, and no one is expecting it, you’re going to have a hard time achieving full integration.This means telling your current family about your plans.  This is part of getting the buy-in.  Let those individuals in your current family know why you woudl like to bring the newcomer home and address some of their personal feelings about having another family member.  LET THEM TELL YOU what’s on their mind.  This may take several days, as each one will process in his/her own timing.

    Then, introduce them telepathically and get PRIVATE feedback from your current animal family members.  If someone is unhappy about the new addition, make the supreme effort to help that individual understand your motives and also to help that individual heal whatever issue(s) the new addition is bringing up for him/her.  Until everyone agreed (without being brow-beaten into it), don’t do anything.

  2. Ask each of your family members to take on responsibility for helping the new family member integrate.Don’t assign tasks.  Instead, ask them to tell you what roles they want to play.  In my case, the two adult felines worked it out between them and told me/showed me who would be doing what.
  3. Once the new animal arrives,  check in as often as possible to find out how each of your animal family members is doing as the process of integration unfolds.Get feedback and ask for and take their advice.
  4. Make sure each member of the family is ready for changes as the process unfolds. For example, if I had just brought Starlight downstairs because I thought it was necessary and had not asked Violet and Sakhara to help me make the decision and work out the details, there would have been hurt feelings and chaos.  Instead, everyone made the supreme effort to adjust as Starlight was moved right into the middle of their personal space.
  5. Support your older family members as they go through the process.This is more than just giving flower essences.  This means taking the time to be with each one and give that individual all the love and attention that s/he normally enjoys.It also means that if an individual wants time alone, you honor that.

    If an individual needs to be heard, you honor that.

    Fully support each animal family member.  That helps that individual to make space for the new addion.

  6. Patience is essentialYou can let the others know that you are spending time with the new animal.  They’re going to smell it on your clothes anyway.  Be sure to explain what you’re doing with the new animal and why.In my situation, Starlight was really still an infant kitten and needed food and attention on a regular bases – at least every 4 hours at first.  Both my adults cats understood this, but my telling them what I was doing and why showed respect for their feelings and kept them in the loop.

    So YOU’RE the one who needs to be patient.  Don’t try to rush or hurry anything.

  7. Let the older animals take the lead whenever possible.Treat each family member as a sentient (feeling) and sapient (intelligent) adult.  Each animal has his/her own wisdom and perspective, and each of those perspectives is valid.You can’t make two other beings like each other.  You can only support their own way of getting acquainted and learning to accept each other.

    REMEMBER – some cats are screamers (like Violet) and humans often don’t understand feline sounds.  Learn to tune in telepathically to “hear” or “sense” what’s being communicated.  Unless blood is being spilled, STAY OUT OF IT!!  Allow the screaming to take place.  You can help by explaining to each animal the viewpoint of the other by DON’T TAKE SIDES!!  There is no “right” or “wrong” here.  There is only each one feeling his/her way along and getting to know the other.

For me, the challenges were:

ALLOWING my cats to do their own thing and not trying to “fix” anything.  After all, nothing was broken!

I had to learn WHEN and WHERE and HOW to step into a situation

I had to learn WHEN and WHERE and HOW to STAY OUT of a situation.

The calmer and more relaxed I was, the calmer and more relaxed my cats were.

May you all have a happy, joyous, and loving family of animals as I am blessed have.

Namaste,
Nedda

Starlight Integration – A Reincarnation Adventure

December 9, 2012 by  
Filed under Animal Communication, New Posts

Starlight and Violet enjoying each other’s company.

An early English author, Samuel Richardson, wrote a novel called Pamela, or Virtue Rewarded in the late 17th century in the form of a young girl’s diary.  One of the critiques of this novel was that, if Pamela had time to write all this detail in her diary, she would not have had time to live it.

I face that very same issue with Starlight and her integration into our household.  I had time to live it, but not to write it all down.  Even if time were not so compressed that we are living what feels like 10 years of “stuff” each day, including taking care of daily needs and multiple crises, I still would have had insufficient time to keep a diary of all that has transpired.

So I ask you to forgive this abbreviated version of what has transpired with Starlight, Sakhara, and Violet.

In our last episode, Starlight moved downstairs with the express permission and agreement of Sakhara and Violet.  It soon became clear that we could only keep her confined at night, so during the day Sakhara would retreat upstairs and Violet and I would “manage” (ha, ha) on our own.

It was hard to get Starlight to bed each evening.  She didn’t want to be alone and my heart hurt to confine her.  Basically, I was waiting for Violet to give permission for me to allow Starlight to come to bed with us.  I knew that Violet had to be the one who decided because if I rushed this stage of the integration, I stood a very good chance of losing Violet’s cooperation.

Fortunately, it took only a few days (can’t remember exactly how many, but no more than 3 and possibly fewer), and Violet agreed that Starlight could sleep with us.  The first night, I put Starlight to bed, but left the door to her room ajar so she could decide what she wanted to do.  She stayed in her room (the dangers of operant conditioning).  So the next night, I took her upstairs with us.

The joy and relief in Starlight’s face and body were enormous.  I made sure that Violet could sleep in her favorite spot (down by my feet under the covers) and I kept Starlight in my arms, literally making a little “bed” for her to cuddle up and curl herself into.   We all settled in and slept fairly well.

A few days later, I restored the cat meditation room to it’s original condition, with the exception of leaving a 3rd litter box in there, as the downstairs bathroom is just too small for 3 boxes.   There’s a 4th box upstairs, and for a while no one used it, but now, it too, is being used.  Violet and Sakhara had been happy with just 2 boxes, but with Starlight here, we really need all 4.

Since giving Starlight full run of the house, Sakhara has begun playing with her.  Sakhara’s approach was her own unique system.  Once Sakhara established herself as “Top” cat (by growling and swatting and refusing to be drawn into the kitten’s play), Sakhara began playing with Starlight.  It fascinates me how this  worked.

Starlight had to show submission by turning over onto her back and exposing her belly.  Once she started doing that, Sakhara began to play.

Now, Starlight tries to swat Sakhara, but also lies down on her back, paws in the air tapping Sakhara’s face.  Sakhara growls and swats, but no longer runs away.  Starlight swats back and then joyfully jumps on Sakhara.  Sakhara growls and knocks her off.  Starlight backs up and comes back for more.  Sakhara may or may not run, but both seem to enjoy this interaction.

Violet has been having a more difficult time, actually.  Violet is a lady – dignified and grand.  She doesn’t like Starlight to jump on her, and Violet’s vocalizations are a combination scream and growl.

Violet often just runs, and Starlight chases, but then Violet gets into the run and chase and it becomes a game – at times.  Sometimes I see a smile on Violet’s face as this interaction gets going.

I keep reminding Violet that Starlight will be taller and heavier than Violet when Starlight reaches her full size.  I encourage her to sit on this kitten before she becomes too big.  But that’s not Violet’s way, and I have to accept that.

The only time I interfere, and I don’t do it very often, is when Violet is on my lap and Starlight goes after Violet’s tail.  I only do this on the bed, not downstairs.  I have taken this perogative because I consider that my time to say “good morning” or “good night” to Violet and Starlight has to learn to give me MY space to do this.

Otherwise, my role in all this is just to stay out of it.  No one is being hurt, and everyone is adjusting.  Occasionally, everyone sleeps together, but more often each cat sleeps alone, or Violet and Sakhara cuddle up together as they always have.

As of today, Starlight is 19 weeks old (about 4 and a half months) and weighs over 4 pounds and growing.  She’s a very big girl with big feet – huge toes and tiny claws that are hard to fine to clip, although they are sharper than needles and need regular attention.  She eats enough for 2 adult cats most days.  She plays hard.  She’s starting to climb the screens, so I’m going to take down the ones she can reach.  I hope by spring she’ll be past this climbing stage.

Some feline feedback:

Sakhara

SAKHARA

Starlight is doing really well, but I despair of her ever being fully grounded.  Still, she’s come a very long way.

She’s so sweet, and she’s fun, and she has brought just the right combination of energies into our home.  Violet and I have agreed that she’s too young to do very much energy work with us, but sometimes she does try to help us support Nedda.

Overall, I’m glad she’s here.

Violet

VIOLET

Starlight is amazing and wonderful.  She keeps challenging me and sometimes I enjoy her and other times she pushes my buttons so I’m getting to clear up old stuff to be ready for our whole family moving into the 5th and higher dimensions.

Nedda is being smart not to try to “fix” anything.  We each are growing, healing, and expanding our consciousness.  It’s a personal choice for each one of us.

Starlight

STARLIGHT

I just love being here.  I have the best family – they have been so patient with me.  I’m having a fantastic time.  The food is great and I get to eat as much as I like.  My only wish is that Violet and Sakhara would play with me more.  Sometimes I get a bit bored, but then Nedda steps in and we play.

It’s been hard not to immediately be accepted, but that’s ok because I know each one was doing her best to adjust to my arrival.  It can be a challenge to carry to so much Love and Light because others don’t know what to do with it.  At least in this family I didn’t have to deal with jealousy.  I was told before I came that many humans who carry Light have to deal with that, but that I would not have to.

So I’m having a ball!!  I’m really grateful to have this wonderful family and I want to help out, but Violet and Sakhara sometimes tell me to just be a kitten and enjoy that for a bit longer.

I had fun talking to the students in Nedda’s TWA class a few weeks ago.  I want to do more of THAT!!

 

Violet, the Teacher – A Reincarnation Adventure

Training the Kitten Begins

 

Violet

Violet and Sakhara had been working together energetically and telepathically with Starlight from nearly the first day of her birth.  They had been in cahoots, making plans and having conversations that excluded me, which is fine, although I was curious about all these deliberations.

Violet started showing up outside Starlight’s door on Wednesday of the first week each time I visited the kitten (which was 4 times each day).  She had integrated her chiropractic adjustment, and seemed ready to go to work with Starlight.  She would just sit outside the room quietly and would come downstairs with me after I left.

“Did you get the job of official teacher?” I asked that Wednesday morning.  She affirmed that this was the case.  “Let me know when you are ready to interact with her,” I requested.

A day or so later, I attempted to create a “see and sniff” situation between Violet and Starlight.  Starlight was eager (to put it mildly) to interact with Violet.  I had an old window screen in the basement.  I imagined that by holding it in place with some bricks on the floor the two cats could visit, but Starlight insisted on climbing the screen, with great ease, I might add.  I needed a better plan.

I could remain inside the room with Starlight to try to keep her from climbing over the top, but that would interfere with the Starlight – Violet connection, and I knew I had to stay out of their interactions.

It was psychologically important that I be on Violet’s side of the screen to support Violet’s efforts and not appear to be taking “sides” with Starlight.

I tried hanging a cloth over the upper portion of the doorway using self-sticking velcro, but I didn’t have enough to keep the determined kitten from pushing her way through.

Nothing I came up was working.

I turned to Violet and asked, “What do you think.  Are you ready to interact with her?”

Violet said,  “Yes.”

So I took a deep breath, used the screen to block off the staircase, and let Starlight come running out of her room.  I just sat on the floor near Violet and watched to see what was going to happen between them.

Starlight would come up to Violet, asking her to play and trying to sniff noses.  Violet would yowl and try to cuff  Starlight.  “Cuffing” is a feline way of disciplining a kitten.  It’s done with claws sheathed, as the purpose is not to injure, but to discipline.

Starlight, however, is faster than lightening.  For all of Violet’s efforts, she couldn’t connect with Starlight’s body – not even once!!  Violet had a very frustrating time of it.

I remained on the floor in the hall between my bedroom and Starlight’s room, and watched Starlight and Violet do an amazing dance up and back between the two rooms and into my bedroom.

Violet did a lot of screaming and swatting the air when Starlight approached her.

Starlight would back up, hunch up her back as if frightened, but also playfully, and then come immediately back at Violet again and again, face-to-face or from behind in a kind of “tag” game.

The game went up and back between the two rooms, as Starlight charged up to Violet, who would scream and swat to no avail.  Violet kept trying to get Starlight to back off, but nothing she did had any effect on Starlight.

Violet avoided going into Starlight’s room when Starlight ran in there, but would follow Starlight into my bedroom (which is definitely Violet’s territory, as she sleeps with me nearly every night).

Meanwhile, Starlight was having fun exploring my bedroom, where she had never been before.

After about 20 minutes of this, Violet was tiring.  Starlight, for her part, wasn’t getting tired at all.  She was more and more excited by all this play that she had been missing.

With Violet’s agreement, I decided it was time to stop.  The next time Starlight ran back into her room, I quickly went in and shut the door.

Starlight was disappointed – she could have gone on much longer, but I had other things to do and Violet needed a break.

After we both went downstairs, Violet agreed to repeat this interaction twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening.  Each time we finished, Violet would come downstairs and go to sleep, quite worn out.  Starlight would protest at the door  and then would play by herself with some of her toys.

Each time I separated them, Starlight would say to me,

“I LOVE Violet.  I just LOVE her!”

And, indeed, Starlight DOES love Violet very much.  And Violet needs as much loving as she can get, and this is turning out to be a great gift of healing for Violet, who never really had a feline to play with in this life.    Sakhara was more like a mother to Violet, and mother cats often just watch their babies play.  So I’ve been Violet’s primary playmate until now, when Starlight is teaching Violet how to play with her.

These games went on for 2-3 days, and then the weather turned suddenly cold and the whole arrangement had to be altered.  More about that next time.
