I’m so overdue for a massage. It’s actually been a couple of years – so what do I do? Book massage appointments for the cats of course. You read that right – the cats.
Our pets, (mostly dogs, but cats too) get a lot of benefit from massage therapy such as enhancing human bonding, pain relief, improved joint flexibility, increased immune system functioning, and overall general health and well-being.
Kelly Nunn, from Gentle Hearts Canine Massage Therapy came to our home last week to give the kitties a bit of relaxation. While our two cats have no health issues at this time (yay!), Kelly told me about some of her other feline clients, including a senior kitty in her early 20’s who, for a week or so after a massage, finds herself acting like her old self, including jumping on the counters again.
Regis eagerly sucked up every bit of massage Kelly could give, I knew he would – he is the world’s most passive and loveable cat. Jasper, on the other hand, had a constant look of ‘WTH?’ on his little face, even though he did seem to enjoy it in very short spurts.
I felt a bit guilty about getting massages for two perfectly healthy cats, but hey, I get them for no reason other than pure pleasure, why shouldn’t they? Kelly’s in-home services include:
Pretty cool, eh? Our pets our part of our family and deserve the same pampering and wellness experiences we do. Most importantly, this really, really reminds me to book myself a massage.
