What I learned from these 3-Brothers!

Part of Yoga is to practice keeping an open mind and seeing a teacher in all beings including animals and nature.


Back in October, I was given the opportunity and the privilege to foster 3 blind cats who are also brothers. Two are completely blind and one has vision only in one eye. And yes, it is a privilege to be in a position to help other beings including and especially disabled animals. In my short time with them, they have already taught me a lot and I would like to share some of them with you!

Panbeh, Pashmak and Pishol are 3 blind cats!

Abundance starts by giving! The Universe has your back!

If I were to rename the cats, I would call Panbeh “Love”, because he is the brother who constantly gives love (cleaning/licking) to the other two without expecting the same from them. Even when they eat part of his food, he patiently shares and never gets mad or fights with them. As their caregiver, I started providing him with more food because I was reminded that “abundance starts by giving”. Since Panbeh was sharing his food (and love) with his brothers, I gave him more food to share because as the saying goes, "the universe has your back." When we are kind and giving, the universe protects us and will bring more abundance our way so we can keep sharing!

Pishol has vision in one eye. He is very independent and doesn’t really demand much love and attention. He is very smart and for the first few weeks, I thought he was a loner and didn’t want to be bothered with his brothers. Gradually as he got more comfortable, I noticed him sharing his space with Panbeh and reciprocating the love he received from him by also licking and cleaning him. He has also gotten more comfortable with me and will come to me for the occasional petting. He has reminded me that no matter how tough some may look on the outside, love and kindness is the key to everyone’s heart!

Sometimes it really does take a village!

If I were to rename Pashmak, I would call him “Miracle”, because three days after arriving in our home, while still trying to get acclimated after a long trip inside a crate, he scratched through the window screen and escaped. The Rescue Coordinator immediately spread the word through social media and the local community listservs and after a week of searching and putting up flyers, we received an email about a sighting of a cat that appeared to be blind because he was bumping into things. Interestingly, he was seen in a neighborhood that was a few miles away from our house and not at all where we had been looking for him. Thanks to this caring and observant neighbor who took the time to send the email, we were able to spring into action, set up cameras and food stations and pass out more flyers in that neighborhood. Two days later, we got a call from another neighbor in that same area that a cat was sleeping in his backyard and he kindly welcomed us to use his backyard to setup traps. My daughter and I spent most of that day patiently waiting and searching for him, and after a few unsuccessful tries, we finally caught him and brought him home safe and sound. After the rescue and to my surprise, this shy cat who initially seemed so scared, warmed up to me so quickly that I was convinced he was grateful for being back in the comfort and safety of our home and reunited with his brothers. What I realized and was extremely grateful for, was the help and support of the local community who came together to help us achieve something that I thought was almost impossible.


Thank you Panbeh, Pashmak and Pishol for what you have taught me.


Let’s practice Yoga, be present, observant of all beings and learn something new and positive every day!


If you or anyone you know is interested in adopting a cat or two or three, please contact the Rescue Coordinator Yasie at: yasie1021@gmail.com .

They are 2-years old and up to date on vaccines, neutered and have microchips. It’s important to note that despite their disability, they are otherwise healthy, happy and playful and don’t let their disability limit them from living a full life.

Sending you love and gratitude,

Kay
