I am currently insanely aware of our Plutonic stratosphere and given the Sun Cancer/Moon Cancer hyper-spidey-sense that I have, my tagline is often (jokingly) “I know everything”. But something else has crept in of late that I would love some help with, from you and the Community Mystic, I have come to know and love.
On my block, there is a woman from whom, over ten years ago I used to rent a house in this same town. When I lived in that house, I had three cats total, one died shortly after moving there and other two cats both, in very odd secretive ways were coerced into living next-door, with another lady. Circumstantially, it was strange; I had to figure it out due to the secrecy (shame, the guilt of the neighbor and also, the cover-up of my ex-housemate, who simply let it slide, rather than tell me) and it became a massive lesson in letting go. Never the less, it broke my heart and I didn’t own a cat again until relatively recently.
So cut to ten+ years later and my current, adorable landlady tells me the same woman (my ex-landlady) stole her last cat and was doing the exact same thing to her current cat; coercing him into staying at her house, denying any knowledge of him being there when confronted and yet, feeding him in her yard. This sent such a cold shiver through me because I knew the same was also happening to my current cat, shortly after moving here. To be clear, my cat is a gigantic five-year-old, Leo, Bengal cross, he is a lothario and a schmooze. However, the Landlady of my old house was behaving exactly like my neighbor from the old house she used to own and rent to me. So there is a thread and a vibe of continuation.
There was also an incident this year, due to the catnapping of my current Landladys cat, he died because the catnapper failed to declare him when a truckload of parasites was affecting the cats in the area. I treated my Leo-love in time but she failed to reach hers and by the time we confronted this woman, it was too late to treat him. My now landlady refuses to have anything more to do with this woman but I know she is coercing my cat. I have asked her to stop. I have asked the police to ask her to stop. I have psychically asked my cat to stop going to her house.
What the giddy fook is happening? Is there a Qi zombie thread to this catnapping Psychotic, in-denial, cat lover? Can these threads permeate over time? Can I do something to energetically cut this thread to her, protect myself and my cat from harm? Or, Am I being too sensitive? It leaves me so angry and sad I can’t sleep and I am starting to obsess (Virgo rising). Any help greatly received.
With huge love, J.
I love that this email arrived with asteroid Bast conjunct Saturn in Capricorn. Bast is, of course, the Ancient Egyptian Cat Goddess. Synchronicity and Deja-Vu are Magic. Magic Is Real. Anyway, the question: I am a bit lost with the various cats and cat-nappers however I can relate.
A few years ago, a Qi Vampire Cat Napper tried to co-opt my Aquarius Cat Tesla. This women despite being ostensibly ‘nice’ to the point of cloying had the most hideous dark energy. I would actually feel fatigued and scattered after talking to her, even though there was never anything ‘wrong’ with what she actually uttered. Apparently oblivious to the irritation factor and ethics of trying to take over one’s companion animal, she’d simper “but I only hand fed her some sardines” and “the weather was so shocking, the poor thing just wanted to come in.”
Unfortunately, the situation was only solved when I moved and that was after it had deteriorated to the point when I was saying things like “get your own bloody cat.” However, I realized quickly that Cat Napping is a syndrome and that it seems to be a sideline of Qi Vampires. Basically, there is a Venn Diagram overlap that has Qi Vampire Cat Lady smack-bang in the middle. They also wring their hands a lot and probably have a Pulsatilla constitution in homeopathy.
So solutions aside from moving? You could go full Saturnine on this and engage a lawyer to invoke local laws. Or magically, try some of the tips in House Witchery and put a statue of Bast in your house for protection. Qi Vampy Cat-Napping would not have been tolerated in Ancient Egypt, where cats were worshipped. And perhaps try one of those plug-in Cat Pheromone things that are meant to make cats feel more at home when you move? Or offer to buy her a cat from the Cat Protection Society?
What does everyone else think?
