Kyanite the Kitty's Healing Fund

Hi everyone! If you didn't know, I have a best friend in the world and her name is Kyanite. Kya is a beautiful mixed cat with her prominent features coming from the Russian Blue breed. It gives her a magical silver quality with one white patch.

Kya has been with me now for all but 3 weeks of her life (she used to fit in the palm of my hand!). She is currently 3 years old. She came into my life when I lived in the back of a storefront that became a healing studio in Chicago( She was the best roommate one could ask for. Her blend of sassy and sweet won over the guests. She would perform and roll around for kids in the window. She brought SO many smiles. Her antics were exactly what was needed to lighten the mood.

When I moved, she adjusted well to life outside of the public eye. She still loves to jump on the session table when I'm giving a friend a massage and working with them. It's adorable...and powerful. She watches over me when I make my products (sprays, salves, soaps) and is an amazing companion otherwise. 

In the evening of Sunday June 18th, I came home and found her unable to stand up. I had sensed some changes in her for the past week and had a veterinarian appointment scheduled for a few days in the future. Well, it was more serious than I thought and I knew at that moment we had to go to the ER.

She was on death's doorstep. Her body had been reacting to a blockage in her intestines. She has a love for hairbands that became a little TOO much. This has been causing complications in her body and it was getting bad quickly.  She had surgery on the spot. There was no other decision to make. Now, I am stuck holding a bill upwards of $5,000. These funds will go directly towards paying this off.

I ask you to think about what an animal has meant in your life. Have you had that really special bond? This is what Kya means to me.

Still reeling from some business ownership debts, this one really stings. I am dedicating my life to others and building a better world. I practice healing work (energy healing, massage, sound, essential oils) and work to build safe space for people. I volunteer my time for worthy causes and to uplift those around me.

I know I will make it through, with the help of community. I am forever grateful for whatever you can donate to her, me, us. Animals like Kya lift the spirits of those around them. They bring emotional healing and remind us to stay in the moment. They bring such valuable lessons. Again, thank you for considering. Much love to ALL of you.
