The Power of Kitty Calm.

Ever since I was a little girl, cats have always been a great source of comfort. There’s something so settling about being around the purring and ‘biscuit’ making. When I had no safe people to turn to, my cat with the only consistent love I knew. There’ve been many times when I’ve been upset and my cat would appear and sit with me. My furry friend reminded me that I was not alone and that whatever I was going through would pass. Today, I have a cute kitty called Cleo (short for Cleopatra) who brings me so much joy. 

Cats can bring out the playful, softness in us and also teach that we deserve to rest, chill and BE without apology. Research has found that the vibes of a cat’s purr can reduce stress, lower blood pressure, and even promote tissue regeneration. Stroking your cat (or any pet) also releases oxytocin, (love hormone) which helps if you feel lonely or upset.

As part of my series on justice for your inner child, it was fun to create a meditation of kitty calm. If you’re allergic to cats but love them this is purrrrfect. 

Lastly, one of the things I love about social media is allowing my inner child to indulge in kitty content so here are my fav Instagram pages. 

Mr Kitters. owners have attached a camera to his collar so its a real treat to get a cheeky incite into his world. Get ready for lots of kitty chat, neighborhood beefs and climbing adventures.

Black people pets. is a hilarious page where black culture is expressed in how we love our pets.

I hope you enjoy exploring all this kitty love as much as I enjoyed creating it!
