Rest In Peace Branston

I’ve got new next door neighbours. I say new but they actually moved in over a year ago. I don’t see them that often as I work full time. It’s normally to either take parcels or to fetch parcels, or a quick hello if they’re outside when I’m going to work.

I have been seeing one member of their family quite frequently. He’s been following my cat into the house, eating his food, and the two of them have regularly been seen playing in the garden. This morning was totally different however.

I grabbed the basket of washing at about 8.30 this morning, and as I walked into the back garden I found Branston lying by the bins choking. I thought at first it was a hair ball, but I realised it was something worse because he was lying on his side and was retching blood.

I ran round to the neighbours and the woman came back with me. She was very upset of course. I phoned the emergency vet who said to bring him in and I grabbed my cat basket. It was then that the poor animal lurched and passed away. I was just as upset as my neighbour.

My first thoughts were poison or vehicle. Thinking about it, it was probably a vehicle. Cats often run when they have internal injuries because of the shock and adrenalin. It must have run into my front garden and jumped up on the fence. Jumping down again probably made the injuries worse.

Branston was a lovely, friendly cat, and quite young. It was horrible to see him suffering in that way. I’m going to miss my little visitor, and Smudge is going to miss his buddy.

I'm an EFT practitioner, Matrix Reimprinter, Colour Therapist, Reiki Healer, Tarot Reader, And Astrologer. EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) was pioneered by Gary Craig, tapping on acupressure points to help a person heal themselves. It proved to be extremely effective and has been taken up by many people worldwide. The therapy was taken further by Karl Dawson who found it very effective to enable the client to access memories, many hidden, sometimes pre-birth. By accessing the memory in the matrix the client is able to identify the root of problem areas, and with the help of the practitioner address the initial cause of trauma, phobias, addictions, pain, etc. I also use colour therapy and reiki as separate therapies, but they also work well together. It's no coincidence that nurses wear blue - blue is a very calming and relaxing colour. Just the thing you need when recovering. Too much blue, however, can lead to withdrawal and in some cases depression. We've all heard the term: 'I'm having a blue day'. This is just one colour example. Reiki is a very relaxing complementary healing technique that originated in the East. It is used worldwide as an effective therapy. The practitioner allows universal energy to flow through them into the client, to help the client recover. The therapies mentioned above are complementary. In orders words they can be used alongside modern medical practices. I do not diagnose or prescribe. Diagnosis and medication is dealt with by your GP or hospital consultant. I've been reading the tarot and runes for over 30 years both in the UK and internationally. I'm also a member of the Astrological Association of Great Britain after studying astrology through the Mayo School of Astrology. I offer Natal Charts, Reports, and Readings. Please note: Tarot and astrology is for guidance only. The reading or report will not make decisions for you and should not be used as a substitute for professional advice.
