Recently it occurred to me to spread the word that I also work with animals, this then meant that I needed to create a flyer to hand out to people. After the initial attempt at creating from an existing template, proofing and printing I received something that I felt had the wrong text colour and would not attract the attention of those it was directed to. A quick outline with a black sharpie did the trick and so I put them out on display.
Instantly the stall holder next to me said 'Oh maybe you can help my Kitty'. It turned out that Kitty (is no youngster) he had developed blisters on his feet and was unable to walk far, kept falling over, was sad, irritable and did not want to go to the vets!
After careful consideration of Kitty's situation I came up with a remedy for him from my New Zealand Native Flower medicine chest and gave this to Kitty's owner.
A few days later I received a phone call whilst working underneath a Native Broadleaf tree, to my surprise it was the stall holder. She was so happy and wanted to share the almost instant recovery Kitty had experienced. She excitedly told me of how Kitty sits at his drink bowl and waits for his drops, he licks it all up and then proceeds to clean his feet and then go about what cats do. He is back on his feet!
What a fabulous outcome and a very heart felt opportunity to help a distressed animal.
