I wrapped a pet sitting gig today with longtime client Abby the Cat. Abby, like most shy cats, hides when her people are gone. In her case, it’s been even more stressful because the house she lives in is for sale, so in addition to me, the pet sitter, there have been many other people Abby doesn’t know going in and out of her house.
When I visited, I could tell she was ok, she’d eaten food, had some water to drink but she didn’t make an appearance. I decided to send her some reiki to help ease her anxiety. I did this at the end of yesterday’s visit.
Today, when I arrived there was Abby, sitting in her usual spot watching me as I went about my chores. She didn’t run away or go into hiding, just sat there relaxed, observing.
It felt good to know the reiki helped relieve her stress. One of the perks of my job, seeing that I can make just a little difference.
