Quotes

"We have lost sight of the fact that we human beings are, in one respect, like small animals without even any fur or sharp teeth to protect us. What protects us is not our viciousness, but our humanity; our ability to love others and to accept the love that others want to offer us. It is not our toughness that keeps us warm at night, but our tenderness which makes others want to keep us warm."—Harold Lyon

Animals As Healers and Teachers at Harmony Farm with Rose De Dan and Joan Ranquet

“Long ago people and animals had a relationship based on mutual trust and respect and indigenous people celebrated the sacredness and honored the spiritual connection with powerful ceremonies.

“Over time that understanding and connection has been mostly forgotten. And, in losing connection with the spirits of our animal relatives, we have also lost connection with our own.”

My Diamond Kiya

Halloween Kiya: Glamour Shot ©2012 Rose De Dan www.reikishamanic.com

On Friday, April 26, 2013 I said good-bye to my beloved Kiya. The vet had thought that her time had come in January, but my fierce Kiya, lioness in a little cat body, had other ideas. Like the miracle kitten she had been—through sheer will, immense love of life and the help of a village of …Continue reading

A busy sunny morning in the yard outside.

First the pigeons, a squirrel and the crows gathered in the front yard for a rousing game of chase the bread ball, avidly watched by indoor cats Cougar and Sand.

Enjoy the show!

As a child growing up in a dysfunctional family I took refuge in the company of animals. We understood each other and I could always trust them. I could usually be found under the table with the family dogs, or curled up with a cat companion. And wherever I went animals would …Continue reading

Breakfast: Kiya and Crow Friends ©Rose De Dan 2012

Since I live with animal companions I have a somewhat regular morning routine.

It begins with my opening my front door so that we can enjoy some extra light through the storm door, and so my cats can see the world—human and animal—cruise by.

Accompanied by hungry cats who …Continue reading

Bagheera Wishes He Could Fly ©Rose De Dan 2012

Last weekend my 14 lb. very muscular cat Bagheera got himself stuck up the cedar tree in my back yard (I think he was chasing his squirrel nemesis). He wailed to me for several hours in an attempt to get me to help him.

My Queen Kiya ©Rose De Dan 2009

Kiya first appeared in my life as a very sick four week-old kitten that was covered with fleas.

Primitive Cats

The weather today has been variable, to say the least. First gray skies, then huge fluffy snowflakes, wet snowflakes, sleet, rain and, eventually, brilliant sunshine with blue skies. Welcome to Spring!

Once the sun came out to stay for a while I opened the front door. The insulated storm door makes the front entry an ideal sunning …Continue reading

Kiya, Sunset Light Rose De Dan ©2010

This past Halloween I was able to hand out candy to trick-or-treaters for the first time in many years. I was surprised to discover that what delighted me most was not the kids; it was my 16 year-old cat, Kiya, who is not as spry or fun-loving as she …Continue reading

One of the perks of having a home office is being able to spend time in the company of my animal companions, which means I also get to witness all kinds of mischief.
