Ask Your Pet

by Jennifer Dickman


Dear Jennifer,

We have a cat, Pan, that we adopted for my mother. It turned out that she had something wrong medically that Pan exacerbated, so we took him to live with us. He seems to pick on the smaller of our two other cats. We do our best to pay equal attention to all three cats. I know that cats will play and attack each other, but this seems to go beyond that. Can you help decipher this? - Valerie

Dear Valerie,

Pan is extremely stressed. He feels insecure, unsure that he will be staying with you, and doesn’t know how to express his feelings of frustration and anger over his past. Attacking your other cat is his way of reassuring himself and letting out his aggression. I told Pan that this was not appropriate, and asked him to stop. I told him that when he feels the need to get out aggression he should use a scratching post. Obviously, if you don’t already have one in your home I’d purchase one immediately.

I reassured Pan that he will be with you forever. It would help to reinforce this if you sit down with him twice daily and tell him this. Radiate feelings of love and safety to him while you’re saying the words. Have pictures in your mind of Pan being a part of your family always.

It will take time for Pan to readjust and change his behaviors, but he is a sweet cat by nature, and will be able to adapt if you work with him. If you catch him engaging in inappropriate behaviors, step in to protect your other cats, but correct Pan from a place of love and understanding. Be sure to praise him frequently for his good qualities and positive behaviors.

There are also some flower essence formulas that can help him. Since there are multiple formulas , I’ll email you my recommendations. Many Blessings, Jennifer Dickman

Dear Jennifer,

I’m taking care of this dog ,Friki. He came from another country, and it seems like he used to live in poor conditions or has been abused. He is very quiet. Sometimes I don’t know how to approach him. Does he want to let us know something he needs? - Fatima

Dear Fatima,

Friki was left out in the cold and neglected often in his former home. He wants very much to be loved, but isn’t sure how to accept it. He needs a forever home – if this is with you please reassure him that he’ll be with you forever. If not, please reassure him that he’ll find his forever home soon.

Allow Friki to come to you on his own terms, as sometimes dogs with a history of abuse or neglect can have aggressive behaviors when faced with certain triggers. Make sure you reassure him that he is a good boy, and is safe and loved. I’d also give him two flower essence formulas from www.Green HopeEssences.com: "Abandonment and Abuse", and "Outburst". Many Blessings, Jennifer Dickman
