Relaxing Feline Friday

These are stressful times for everyone, so let's make this a relaxing Friday. First, here's me chilling out on Mum's bed. Actually, it's OUR bed since we both sleep on it. Mum says I spend more time on it than she does, so I guess it's really MY bed.

Next, here's a video clip of me receiving Reiki from Mum the other day.

She's noticed I'm a little stressed so I told her with my thoughts to give me some Reiki healing.
Just very short sessions because it gets a bit overwhelming.

This seems to relax her too and then we can both enjoy our afternoon nap.

Friendly Fill-Ins

And now here's our Friendly Fill-Ins for today. This blog hop is hosted by 15andmeowing and Four-Legged Furballs.

1. I can’t wait for ________________________ to reopen after the quarantine.
2. I am in no hurry for ___________________________ to reopen after the quarantine.
3. These days, _________ is my default mood.
4. Have I ever told you _________?

1. I can’t wait for the vet's to reopen (fully) after the quarantine. Athena was due her booster last month but In line with government guidelines, they are only offering medically essential appointments. 
2. I am in no hurry for shops to reopen after the quarantine. I mean other shops besides groceries and essentials. I hate shopping and this throw-away society. If people don't learn from the current crisis, then we are all lost. 
3. These days, anxiety is my default mood. But I'm also very angry.
4. Have I ever told you that I wish I'd trained as a classical singer? My teenage self would never think about such a thing. She wanted to be a pop singer. Back in the 80s, pop music was great! But by the end of the decade, I was well into rock and metal, and I formed a rock band with my brother. I still love my 80s music, though :)

1. I can’t wait for Mum to look less stressed after the quarantine. 
2. I am in no hurry for Mum to start going out after the quarantine. She doesn't go out much because of her social anxiety, but I hate it when she pops out to the shops with Granny leaving me all alone. 
3. These days, laziness is my default mood.
4. Have I ever told you that I don't much care for the heavy metal music Mum listens to sometimes? I do however like some of the pop and classical music she plays. It's so relaxing.

I hope I am as attuned to our cats as you are with your mum, Athena!
And I could go for a deep tissue massage, with a facial thrown in!

Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers from both of you. I am sorry your mum is so stressed, but I understand. It is never too late to follow your dreams, your mum should start training in classical music when this crisis is over. I love 80's music too, most of the music from the 90's til now stinks. I think it is nice that your mom can give you a reiki session. XO

Your reiki session was very relaxing.

You sure seemed to like your Reiki sweet Athena! Those were good fill-in answers, you should do the classical singing, sounds like fun. It's cool you were in a band in the 80s. Our Dad was in a hippie band back in the early 70s and he's taken up playing piano and guitar during the lockdown. I hope you both have a wonderful weekend.

I loved watching your video! The bond between you is so strong.

Cathy Keisha said...

Relaxing video. Great answers. TW had classical singing lessons even though she wanted to sing rock. She figured she'd learn the fundamentals and had one teacher who spent a whole year on breathing technique. She never followed through cos of something someone in her office said.

Summer said...

How cool that you get reiki healings from your human!

We think it is furry noble and kind-hearted of you, to allow your Mum to share YOUR bed, O Wise One.
With regard to Reiki - our StepGrandma says kitties are natural Reiki Masters. So in Our Household, it is We who give the Reiki treatments (mol).

Thank you both for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins! This here human enjoys various types of rock music, and none of the kitties here seem to share the taste for it. I try to keep the volume down when I'm at home with them. Purrs and well wishes!
