Please Help Joey

Joey

Joey the cat asks,

“I dont feel well & my mom thinks I’m dying but I want to live. So please think of me healthy.  You can say to the angels, ‘please help joey’s body be well-balanced & healthy.  He believes in your power & love so I am sending this out for him.’ & then know that I’m saying thank you for talking to the angels for me.”

I wrote this article about Joey in September 2009.  Joey is now 18 years old.

My former boyfriend and I adopted Joey from a rescue organization at the Westchester, NY County Cat Show when Joey was 6 months old.  I remember walking him in a cardboard box carrier across the Bronx River Parkway and thinking that I was some what grown up.  I was 22 years old and still in college.  Joey is a charcoal gray tabby cat with a white chest and white paws.    Joey has been with me two years longer than any other animal in my home.  That is 14 years.  I believe these to be the highlights of his life:  Before he came to me someone cut his whiskers and kicked him.  He even now can get a little skittish at the sight of legs.  When we lived on the shores of Peach Lake, Joey would go canoeing with me everyday.  He once fell into the lake and actually swam to me to pull him out.  He went on a four-mile walk with my former boyfriend.  When a set of golfers showed up my boyfriend left him on the 8 hole.  Joey waited three hours until I came home from work to search and rescue.  He jumped out the car at gas station somewhere in Kansas where I almost lost him.  He has bum knee from falling out of tree house on the property of a Montecito Horse Ranch.  One day in Upper Ojai, my wolf dog was barking frantically because a coyote had Joey pinned between a rock and a chain link fence.  Joey survived with only a few punctures.  My ex-husband wrote a song about him.

When I ask Joey what he remembers he says,

“I remember the Bad Lands and all the hotels we slept in and how the country looked and smelled different as we traveled and I remember when we didn’t have a home and Boomer the Bunny couldn’t live with us and we slept in a tent and in friends’ houses.  I remember how we lived with a Seymour the Blue and Gold Parrot and how he knew when there were coyotes outside before I did. I remember the pigs, Jezebel and Simon, and how they were so grateful to live with us and eat juice pulp.  I remember all the pet sitters we had and how one of them would go into your closet and wear your dresses.  I remember being scared that a fire was going to burn our house and I remember not being as smart as I am now.   I remember Juliet, cat, and how her spirit taught me how to hunt the day she died and I remember all the types of music you would listen to and I remember how we had a huge organic garden with three different types of catnip and how you put a big net up so that the deer wouldn’t bring their babies into he garden and eat all the food.  I remember eating puzzle pieces and you wondering where the pieces went.  I remember not understanding why I couldn’t go to the bathroom in the potted plants. I remember the smell of wine and all the different kinds of food and treats you would feed me. I remember walking on top of snow and how beautiful it was when it would fall from the sky. I remember how we lived where there were hundreds of stray cats and some of them would want to fight for nothing.  I would hang out in the upstairs of the house in the room that had doorways that opened to the sky and I could see and smell the ocean and the watch the white waves crashing.”

I ask Joey, “What have you learned over the years?”

Joey answers, “I have learned that no fear is worth having, because if you are patient it goes away.  I have learned that the ocean, the forest, and the lands from here to NY sometimes suffer and it is up to humans to make it better.  I have learned that good friends of ours walk slower in the house.  If someone is a guest and they walk quickly they usually are selfish.  I have learned that you can live in the country or he city and either place resides coyotes, but there are no deer in the city.  I have learned it is cooler under the house on hot days and that eating mice makes my body feel healthier.  If you kill a bird mom will be really sad.  I have learned that if someone is mean in might just be because someone hurt them when they were little.  Most of all, saying I love you with a touch of my paw is the most healing for mom when she is sad.” 

Joey adds today 8/29/00,“I have learned that thinking about what you want to create and how you want to be in your body actually helps.  I have learned that I am special and so is everyone else that cares about what animals are thinking and feeling.  I have learned that suffering is temporary and I believe I will know when it is the right time to surrender to death and I do not feel it is the right time yet.  I believe in the power of health and I believe in the power of friends good thoughts for you. That is why I would love it if you could imagine good things for me.”

  1. Sending lots of good thoughts to Joey! May he find the strength to pull through this and the peace to know when he is personally ready.

  2. Thank you for such an inspiring post about Joey! I’m so sorry to hear he’s feeling this way. I just did a healing ceremony for him. Please let him know. It was just now, so about noon. I will continue to send healing thoughts his way. He is such a wise animal and has taught me so much through these posts, and I’m sure many others. He has accomplished important work just by being.

    Blessings,

    Cammy.

    OH MY GOODNESS I didnt hit post and my comments went into the never never land of computers. Darn. Tell Joey I see him Healthy Happy Whole and Complete.
    I love hearing about your family, and esp. what Maia says from Heaven.
    I have missed being in close touch with you. I miss hearing what my “babies”
    try to tell me, esp Sonny who looks at me with his great big beautiful eyes. I try to send messages, but tell them I just dont speak Cat so I dont hear what they say. Also missed SO MUCH having you get in touch with my Mom on her birthday, but tried to send messages to her. Maybe next year.

    I KNOW that God is within each and everyone of us and that His/Her healing
    touch will make Joey whole, healthy, and complete.

    Im happy that you have stopped the sale of rabbit meat at the store. My grandfather used to raise rabbits for food because my family was poor and that food fed a lot of people, who would have gone hungry, and he would never let me go see them or play with them. Wise man. Bunnies in the wild have enough enemies = mostly coyotes, birds of prey. Poor things. Im glad Beanie has you. Love to you and ALL your family. LaDelle Brown

    I am so sad to hear of your cat Joey’s condition. You have done many wonderful readings for me, and understand that Gretchen (my mini doxi) passed away in May from kidney failure. Please feel free to contact her to aid Joey and his acceptance. Prayers and hugs go out, and I will talk to you soon -Dave

    Dear, Joey:
    I am envisioning good health and many many more happy times for you together with your family. Just like you, I believe in the power of prayer and positive thoughts for helping and healing each other. About 3 months ago your Mom helped me so much when I was going through a terrible, terrible sadness at the loss of my dear dog Savannah. I am forever grateful that your Mom could help connect me and Savannah again and I am going to be thinking of you as healthy and living more of your life here with your Mom. I wish you the very best, Joey!

    Laura, have you been introduced to Kangen Alkaline Water by Enagic Company in Japan? This company is over 37 yrs old and makes a very important medical grade device which electrolizes the water, promoting hydration, antioxidants, anti inflammatory properties and micro clustering of water molecules, which gets to the cells quickly. If you want to honor Joey’s wish to live, the water will help the body go back to homeostasis. go to http://www.kangendemo.com and Kangen4pets.com or contact me about our many websites. wishing you all the best!

    Dear Laura, I will pray for you and Joey. He says such wonderful things and has a beautiful heart. My Nikita was so sick but she didn’t want to go either. I still feel her loss so much and I send you hugs for all you are going through with your aging animals’ sickness and passing over. Hey Joey, I’m pulling for you!!!!

    Hi Joey! You’re quite handsome. I love you. I’m sorry that you’re not feeling well. I have some ideas that might make you feel better. You see, its all about putting your thoughts on all the things that make you feel good and all the thoughts that make you feel relaxed. When we are relaxed, everything heals so much faster. And I have a suggestion – put together a book of miracles. A book of stories about people and animals who have healed things that others thought could not be healed. And then read the book everyday so that you can know at the depth of your soul that miracles are possible. And I would tell myself that every hour I will find something to smile about or laugh about or feel appreciative for. If you can remember to do this all day everyday, you will help yourself to feel better very, very fast. Its the best kind of medicine there is! I send you and your mom and your animal family lots of love. 🙂

    This is part of my conversation with Saber, through Laura.

    Saber:
    I am so happy that you are talking to me today because I want my mom to know that everything is perfect here in heaven. I died in her embrace. When I rose to heaven I rose in the most beautiful steam and colors. There was not an ounce of fear. I rose and I felt pure again. When I was out of my body I looked down at my mom and how sad she was and I tried to hug her with all my spirit.

    ~ Mom, I want you to know that you have many angels here and they all are rooting for you. ~
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Joey, Saber and I are asking “our” angels to help the many other angels make you healthy and well-balanced.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    “Joey is a special creature in this world, he believes in your love and your power and we are asking you to protect him & help him heal and to feel well with no pain. Love this kitty, and bless him and keep him”

    If Joey has questions or specific requests of Saber please feel free to contact my sweet boy.

    I have followed your animals faithfully and love them in the same spirit I love my own, who have benefited so much from your talents and abilities. We all are asking for healing love for Joey, so that he can be comfortable here in this dimension until he is ready to journey beyond. We send love to you, too, Laura.

    First of all I enjoy your newsletters so much and love hearing about your animals and others. It is amazing the thoughts that come from our pets and what we get from them. My first meeting with you I was skeptical but after 5 minutes I was a believer. You not only are a beautiful person but have an amazing talent that you use to help others. My life was enriched by knowing you. I think of you often and will keep love and positive thoughts coming to you and your loved ones.

    Continued prayers for Joey, and we’re glad that he is doing better. We hope that your entire animal family has better days ahead. We are so blessed to have been offered your amazing talents. Keep the faith and our thoughts are with you.
