Laura Out And About

Bean my bunny says, “I feel so much better when I spend time outside. When I connect with nature, I feel healthy in my mind, body and spirit. All is important. Take care of yourself and do what you love.”

It’s Hot – Animals Inside


Bean usually goes outside during the day but today she is staying inside. There will be record high temperatures. 

Bean says, “Digging in the soil won’t be enough to keep your pets cool today and the air will be hard to breathe. Stop and believe that animals have feelings too. Take care of them, please. When you take care of animals your heart expands.” #choosekindness

This is my bunny Bean. She is 9 years old. I asked her what she wants to say to you all and she replied,

“People think bunnies don’t need a lot of attention but we enjoy time with our people. I like having focused attention on me.

I like my room being mommies yoga room.

I like a lot of vegetables. Right now fennel is my favorite. I also like blueberries as snacks.”

Laura Out And About – In The Yard With Bean

Bean my bunny says,

“Good morning! Everyone should give their bunnies time outside.”

Bean has access to my back yard everyday but chooses to go outside every other day. She usually goes out early morning to late afternoon. I have a garden planted for her so she digs up carrots, eats parsley and sleeps behind her favorite flowering bush. This picture is taken next to the bird feeder where she hangs out early morning.

Bunny & Pearl

Pearl and Bunny Day 7 of Being Together

When I asked Bunny (Bunny on the right) about Pearl (the new bunny in the house) he said,

“Pearl said she didn’t think anyone was handsome before and now she thinks I am handsome. I like her and I wonder if her flop over could flop over next to me. I want to flop over together.”

Words Of Wisdom From My Animals

I ask my animals,

“What words of wisdom do you have for me this morning?”

 

Stormy

Stormy, my 12-year-young Aussie dog, says, “Sometimes when you don’t feel like it, it is best to get up and go for a walk. Also sometimes when you are lonely, you may need a hug from your animal. I think there is an answer to every question.”

Makia

Makia, my 17-year-old pure white cat, says, “Sometimes when I feel like my senses are leaving me, I go and lie near the bamboo and I pretend I can hear them blowing in the wind and then God makes a big gust of wind come so I can hear the sound for real. Angels help you if you help yourself.”

Serafina

Serafina, my 8-year-old slate gray cat with beautiful eyes, says, “I think it is best to always smile at others. I smile by lifting my head up and making my eyes look bright. When I do this to other animals they treat me better. I make my eyes look bright by thinking something good about the other being.”

Bean Playing

Bean, my 7-year-old big black bunny, says, “It is important to learn to communicate so others understand you. Not everyone can read my mind, so sometimes I have to stamp a foot or run toward someone to say how I am feeling. Other times I just have to be patient and wait and then they will figure it out. I have learned the best way to communicate with humans is to think what I want over and over again, and when they start to understand, just be still; but if they don’t understand, it is best to charge them so they keep trying to figure it out. This I do with my pet sitters.”

Storm now adds, “I think the best way to communicate with humans is by looking at them and saying what I feel and need through my heart. Most humans like to feel animals near their heart, so they figure it out.”

Luca, my 10-month-old, cream-colored small standard poodle, says, “I have learned that I have a voice that keeps barking, and when Mom tells me to be quiet, sometimes my mind hears her but my voice does not stop. I am not sure how to figure that out yet, but I am going to keep trying.”

Joey Joe

Joey, my cat in heaven, says, “Do good things in the world and believe that there are others helping you. Be patient and everything you need will come to you. If you keep looking and searching randomly, you will throw off the magnetism. Sometimes you have to let a thought go in order for the right situation to happen. When people are used to things not working out, their depression stops good things from happening. Believe in change.”

Maia A Year Before She Died

Maia, my wolf dog in heaven, says, “We all have past lives that are being integrated with our lives on Earth. Know that if you strive to understand others and are compassionate, the best of you in a past life will all of a sudden ignite in the best of you in this life. Meaning you can have spontaneous gifts of knowledge. Believe in the possibility that your mind and body can for, instance, quickly expand to be more intelligent or flexible.”

My animals tell what makes a good vet…

I have had the same veterinarian for 13 years.  When Lala, my first dog as an adult, was in the emergency room getting blood transfusions with vets that admittedly did not know what to do I called my Montecito dog walking clients to ask, “Who is the best vet in Santa Barbara” The answer was all the same. Let’s call him Dr. O.  I was 24 years old and scared. I called him after hours and left a frantic message on his voicemail.  At 11pm that night he called me personally to tell me to bring my dog down to Veterinary Medical and Surgical Group.  He said, “She will be in the best care there.”  She died but was well taken care of until her passing.  I was in the beginning of being an animal professional myself and I felt strongly that Dr. O was dedicated to help animals.  He would be my vet.  Dr. O has seen Maia (my wolf dog) through Cancer, Rocky Mountain Spotted fever and quarantine for biting.  One time in her younger years, I took Maia to another vet for a scratched eye.  That vet hit Maia with a closed fist for fussing and told me he would have to sew her eye shut for it to heal.  I immediately took Maia back to Dr. O.  He calmly had technicians restrain her.  He breathed.  He moved slowly and when Maia fussed he gave her some room and retrained her again.  He scratched her eye more with qtip to stimulate the cells to heal, gave me some drops and we were on our way with Maia’s eye in recovery.

When Makia (my cat) got diagnosed with diabetes I felt confident he would put her on the right dosage of insulin.  Then Joey my oldest just got diagnosed with a thyroid tumor and needed to be put under to have a tooth removed.  Having them under anesthesia is scary when they are old, but I trusted my vet that Joey would be safe.   My animals have all seen Dr. O in the last year for either a check up or for something more serious.  I will ask them, “What makes a good veterinarian?” (They are all talking about Dr. O):

Joey (cat that just had his tooth taken out):  “Someone who really cares about my mouth and cares to take out only the bad teeth and not the other ones (Joey had dental x-rays). Someone who comes to see the animal after the animal wakes up to make sure they are ok to go home.”

Makia (has diabetes): “Someone who remembers other animals and their stories in order to help the animal they are trying to help at the moment.  Someone who continues to read on what can help animals.”

Maia (cancer survivor):  “Someone who wants you to get well even though they may think you are a little wild.  Someone who wants you to feel comfortable when you are old and doesn’t give up on relieving your discomfort and cares still how your blood looks.”

Storm: “Someone who tells people to bring their pets in for blood work often and who takes time to pet you.”

Serafina: “I think a good vet is someone who looks over your whole body and then explains to your mom everything they see.  Someone who can talk well to animal’s people.”

Bean: “A vet that can cut a rabbit open and handled the operation if it is really hard and then a vet who knows what rabbits should eat and what they should not eat.” (Bean had a difficult spay and then another vet told us to feed her strawberry jam to get her to eat.  Strawberry jam is not good for bunnies and could do more harm.)

ANIMALS TALK ABOUT LOVE

Storm King

Storm King (Aussie Dog):  Love means light energy flowing from your heart to anyone you look at or communicate with.

Joey Joe

Joey (Cat):  Love means being able to sense when someone is worried and upset and being in their presence so that they feel like they have a friend nearby.

The Beans

Bean (Bunny):  Love means when you need someone to do something you ask them gently and calmly instead of scaring them or forcing them into action.

Shelley (Sheep):  Love means someone supporting your will to live even if they think you may die.

Seamore

Seamore (Parrot):  Love is letting someone go when you know you are not the best for them.

The Zebra

Z (Zebra):  Love is nature.  Love is the warmth of the sun after a hard rain.

Jezzie (Pig):  Love is someone helping you to see when you are blind.

Reilly (Horse):  Love is someone speaking in your best interest when you cannot speak for yourself.

Makia - Always thinking...

Makia (Cat):  Love is privacy and alone time to mediate and be yourself.  Love is what one must find inside of themselves in order to live happily with others.

Serafina

Serafina (cat):  Love is finding ways to turn fear into courage.  Love is when my mom kisses my head and tells me I am beautiful and it is the way one tends to the flowers.  Love is also the way the birds look at my mom after she has filled the feeders.

Mr. Squirrelly

Mr. Squirrelly:  Love is remembering someone everyday even after they have been dead along time.  Love is being thankful for what your body can sense: like the feel of a healthy oak tree or a hawk on its way.  Love is breath.  Love is enjoying playing with the younger ones even though your body feels stiff.

Maia - A Good Day!

Maia (Wolf-Dog):  Love is wanting to live with your family even though you know heaven is best for you.  Love is wanting to protect your territory and do your job no matter how you are feeling.  Love is family.  Love is being faithful and present to the ones you love.  Love is increased when one forgives themselves and others.

BEAN'S FIRST DIARY ENTRY

THE BEANS

This is Beanie the bunny.  I found her hopping close to a busy street early one morning close to the center of town.  She was right in front of a store called the Hair Company.  There were wild bunnies pleading to me to save Bean from running into traffic.  She is very well-traveled.  She has flown to cross-country two times.

Bean says, “My house is a very interesting house if you are a bunny.  I have a deluxe pen.  I know that no other bunnies have such a wonderful pen then I do.  I know this because once when I went away I went to a place my mom calls bunny camp.  There they taught me how to do a trick and they gave me fun things to play with.  I had a great pen there with many toys and I got to see and meet other bunnies.  We talked about our pens at home and I definitely had the coolest pen.  I remember I had to stand on wire when I was younger and that is very bad for a bunny because it hurts our paws.  It is like if you stood on wire.  It is uncomfortable.  The other thing is you feel you can not breath in a place like that.  You should have a pen.  My pen has a ottoman in it.  I lie on it most of the day so I can look outside the window.

* bean to be continued…we have a visitor….a few days later…

I think of spirits from time to time, because my mom thinks of them.  We had a lot of animals that died in the back yard before we lived here.  There were dogs under the house.  I know this because I used to see them.  They would look at me playing in the yard and want to chase me but be scared to come out from under the house.  Then one day my mom when to the mountains and said a pray for herself and the house and for all the spirits in the house.  She meant the live animals but it helped the dead ones too.  And then they burst out from under the house and disappeared like fog when the sun gets hot.  It was beautiful.  Now those dogs like to look down on us and protect me when a hawk flies in the yard.  Their spirit runs to me and say, “Go hide.  You have no time to look up.”  Then when it is safe they tell me I can come out and play again.  So many things happen here my mom doesn’t know about.  She doesn’t have time to listen to all our stories.

MY PETS' NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS

The Stinchfield Pets’ New Year Resolutions:

Makia (white cat):  I want to become more peaceful within myself when I get angry with others.  It is a hard one because I want to place the blame on another cat, but really I am responsible for my feelings.  I also want to learn to tell the petsitter what I want with out trying too hard.


Storm King (Aussie):  I want to learn new tricks and I want to help people more.  It is hard because mom is really busy.  I need to get on her to-do list and in her calendar.  Last year I made two kid friends.  I have not seen them in awhile.  I want to see them again.  We all really love each other.


Joey (Oldest Cat):  I want to be better friends with the dogs.  I want to talk to them more about everything we have been through.  I am seeing Maia get old and I think that I am going to miss her when she dies and I want to know her more.  I want her to know that I think it is special that she is a wolf and she lives with three cats and a bunny.  She has been intense and at first I know she wanted to kill us, but it has been over 12 years that I have felt safe with her.  I think that is really special.


Maia (Wolf-dog): I feel pretty much at peace.  There is not much more I want to do with my life.  You talk to me sometimes about how I am more instinctual than most.  I would like to learn how to override that a bit more and be more conscious.  But I don’t want to work too hard at it.  I just want to notice my behavior more.  Mom, I think I need a ramp to get in the car.  It hurts even when you help me.


Serafina (Grey cat):  I want to become friends with Makia and have her tell me all the knowledge that she knows.  She is so smart I can tell.  I want to learn to share my food.  That is a hard one and Joey gets mad at me because I guard the food table.  I never had so much food.  I don’t know why I do it, because we always have food available.  I think it is because there was a time before here that I didn’t get food and I had worms.  It is silly because there is apart of me that knows better.  It must be what Maia is talking about.


Bean (Bunny):  This year I want to be free in the house.  I want to make sure I do not pee anywhere but my litterbox and stay away from wires.  I have been getting better when I am free, but I could be even better at it.  I want to learn that mom is not going to drop me when she puts me down.  I don’t have nightmares anymore of when I lived at that bad home and smelled cigarette smoke.  When someone who smokes walks by the house, I get scared.  I want that to go away.  I want to learn to use my mind in extraordinary ways.  My whole family practices that a lot.  I like the idea of playing with our minds and then teaching the others what we learn.  Mom says it is important to share what we learn because each of us will be good at something different and we all can learn from each other.  I love that idea.  I have such an amazing family.

Missing / found Bunny Bean

Bean went missing one day before I had to rush off to Malibu for work.  When I first tuned into her she said, “What if a hawk caught me?” Which had me frantically searching our little yard for a hiding black bunny.

She has tunnels that I imagine are dug all the way to the golf course four blocks away.  I stuck a broom handle as far as it could go and felt no Hiding Bunny Bean.

Storm King the Aussie / Bunny Herder was on it and he too couldn’t sniff her out.

Finally I walked next store to the park and found myself stopped along the fence. “Hi Mom” I hear from behind my fence and there is little Bean with her tiny rabbit eyes and whiskers peering out at me from a crack in the wood fencing.  She was between a wood fence and garden fence.  Both on our property.

Hiding Bunny Bean. I lightened around her. Do you see her?

“Beanie please come out”.  “No mom,” she answered back, “It’s hot and nice and cool in here.” Finally, I convinced her while standing on a chair pushing her out with the broom.

Bean safe in her pen. Waiting for her treats.
