Here is an interesting experience:  An owner of a Spooky2-Scalar device took one flea from his cat, crushed it, and put it on the plate of the S2S transmitter.  He said that immediately the cat had no fleas.

S2S is expensive as a one-time outlay,  but usage requires only minor electrical power thereafter.  I have one and sleep in it's scalar field.  That, or something, is working for me.  (Age 85 and no meds nor MD visits in last 20 years - ever since I got back to USA and took charge of my own health.)
Amazing, Jim.  You're obviously doing something (or a lot of things) right.  You go!
More thoughts on your amazing story of not having seen an MD in 20 years!  I have thought a lot about those I know and cannot think of more than one person who comes close. 

We have a 96 year old friend, Bill, who was like you for the longest time.  He was always rather lean, tall and lanky, and in spite of having had polio as a child, he was agile and very active until he had a stroke about 7 years ago.  Prior to that, he grew a huge garden, studied herbs, along with many other helpful things, and avoided doctors where possible.  But when he had his stroke, his partner knew the exact problem.  His partner said, "you never drink water!  You sit there and drink 5 or 6 cups of coffee every day, but no water!"

Long story short, instead of drinking the water he needs, he soon began taking a long list of BigPharma meds, and never stopped.  The list grew, occasionally contracted with a new doctor, but grew again with yet another doctor.  Right now he has hypertension, congestive heart failure, and a number of other problems.   To this day, according to his partner, he refuses to drink water because, "it doesn't taste good", and instead drinks sugary drinks.  Now he's in a nursing home/hospice for his end stage CHF.

I'm not saying I know the exact cause of his current dilemma, but if only he had listened to his partner (who seems to often know more than the doctors), he might be in much better shape today than he is.  By drinking adequate water, his blood would have thinned considerably and probably not clotted in his brain, as it did.  Rather than dwell on what could have been, though, I find it refreshing to hear of someone who has taken control over his/her own body and no doubt done a much better job than any MD could.

So, Jim, if you have any words of wisdom to dish out, there may be many people eager to listen.  Am betting you avoid processed foods, vaccines, and GM food.

Thanks Ilinda!  It sounds almost as if the local B & B that encourages its cats to roll on its herb garden might have had the right idea then!  :)

Speaking of catnip, our previous cat was not interested, but this one, Hudson, we found out by accident, does like it.  I had a tiny planting way back behind the barn in a rather tightly enclosed (three sides are concrete block walls 4' high) herb garden.

One day I happened to glance into the herb garden and noticed Hudson appearing to be almost upside down between a group of boulders, and remembered that's where I started the catnip.  He was having himself a ball, but decimating catnip leaves in the process.

No matter how many times you see a cat get his kicks with catnip, it's still fun to watch.

It is  :)

One of my gardening books always makes me laugh.  It gives the various diseases for each species, and then under "diseases" for catmint ( as opposed to catnip), it says "cats may roll on it."

 ;)

Your reference to catmint prompted me to check the difference between catnip and catmint.  Apparently they are in same genus, Nepeta, but catnip is Nepeta cataria and catmint is Nepeta mussinii.  However there are other species, but those are listed first.

Is it a general rule that they both are aromatically attractive to cats, but that catmint is much more eye-appealing to humans due to its beautiful flowers.

Do you have both?  Do you notice one more potent that the other, regarding its effect on cats?

All of the fancy breeding work has been done with Mussinii, such that so many lovely named cultivars now exist.

So I have live Mussinii outdoors, and dried catnip indoors  :)


This is not my kitty or my garden  :)

Every homestead needs a cat or two to keep rodents away from food supplies, as well as keeping their fleas and droppings away from the house.

This thread is dedicated to that important member of the family  :)

R.R. thks, great Topic,

Thank you.  It was actually post #15 which went far astray.  Well, it's history now.  But now that RR has posted that beautiful pic of catmint, I want some!  It is gorgeous. 

And as an aside, the cat in that the catmint pic looks to be a Turkish Van.  We had one onetime and that is a very unusual cat in that they like to play in water.  When hubby would be in the shower, Buford our Turkish Van would get in there too, and at times when one of us would be using the bathroom sink, for brushing teeth, or handwashing, Buford would leap up and try to be part of the action.  Hilarious.

We've suffered a few times in the past with indoor flea outbreaks for lack of more diligent attention to this issue.  It seems that we can get away without chemicals for a while, and then boom, we're infested.

Here is an interesting experience:  An owner of a Spooky2-Scalar device took one flea from his cat, crushed it, and put it on the plate of the S2S transmitter.  He said that immediately the cat had no fleas.

S2S is expensive as a one-time outlay,  but usage requires only minor electrical power thereafter.  I have one and sleep in it's scalar field.  That, or something, is working for me.  (Age 85 and no meds nor MD visits in last 20 years - ever since I got back to USA and took charge of my own health.)

Jimfarmer, wow so glad to hear you have a Spooky! That is so impressive, 85 and no illnesses.
We have one in the family currently being used by my second oldest daughter and her fiance, they use it all the time...
I think they might have heard about it from me, I had posted about it on FB too. There are FB groups of spooky users...
I will be making use of it soon...
I had started a Spooky topic awhile ago, related to the technology...

Here are some long-storage pet probiotics in foil packs dated to "expire" a decade from now.  There's a feline version and a canine one:


In normal times, pet owners whose animals are prescribed an antibiotic might want to insist on being given a supply of these to equal or exceed the number of days in which the antibiotic is to be taken.  In hard times, a stash might be kept as a follow up to whenever pets are given your home-made colloidal silver.  They don't need refrigeration, which makes them all the more valuable.

Dose is one packet per day, mixed with food at the opposite time of the day that an antibiotic is given (or silver).

Getting a female kitty through the post-spay recovery period:

There are so many good reasons to have an older kitten (around 6 months of age) spayed:

*Elimination of the possibility of mammary and gynecological cancers

*Elimination of heat cycle mating behavior

*Elimination of the possibility of unwanted pregnancies

But the recovery period from spaying for a female cat is more intensive than for a neutered male.  Unless one opts for ovaries-only removal via the European laparoscopic oophorectomy, which is uncommon in the U.S., the incision may be several inches long, the pain more intense, and the need for greater supervision / intervention for the next two weeks.  That means preventing kitty from climbing on furniture or stairs, preventing her from going outdoors, confinement in a recovery room with access to food, water and litter, and preventing her from licking, scratching or biting the post-surgical area.

The vet will likely send her home in a cone-shaped Elizabethan collar in order to prevent kitty from having access to the surgical site.  This may make finding a comfortable sleeping position difficult for kitty, as well as impede her from self-grooming, and throw off her already-anaesthesia-and-post-op-opioid-disturbed balance as she ambulates. 

A possibly better safeguard is to take a tube sock (or crew sock for a small kitten), minus the toe part, and snip arm and leg holes, as well as an opening part-way up the back (one end of the sock) so as not to apply pressure to the incision.  This also lets the tail out and keeps everything clean in the litter box.  The sock-sweater is then pulled over her head, then front legs inserted in holes, then back legs inserted.  It should be snug enough not to come off, but have plenty of stretch for proper circulation and range of motion. 

In addition, kitty can be made significantly more comfortable if a couple of drops of Bach Flower Rescue Remedy on a cotton ball are wiped inside of each ear once every few hours for the first week of recovery.

Thanks for that wonderful suggestion.  I did not know how to administer Rescue Remedy to animals, so the few times it was used here on goats, it was mixed with a tiny bit of water, and squirted into the side of the mouth. 

The nice thing about the ear routine is that it might be slightly fragrant around the animal for a while.
