An 8-year-old rescue cat named Abby suffered from nervousness right from the time adopted by her owner in November 2009, when she was 10 weeks old, from a home with kids who handled her roughly. She jumped at the slightest noise, hesitated to bond with the owner, and often chewed her fur in desperation. As a result, she developed bald patches on her body which looked as if she was neatly shaven.
On 18 January 2017, the practitioner gave aremedy in alcohol drops for ease of use, contrary to the normal practice of giving in pills, as the owner was well known to her and it was not possible to meet due to distance:
#1. CC1.1 Animal tonic + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic…1 drop in 500ml of cat’s drinking water per day
In spite of no change in the first 3 weeks, she continued the remedy. After five weeks of starting, on 22 February, the owner noticed that Abby’s fur had started growing. Also she started becoming friendly and almost tried to lie down on the lap of her owner. But next month, she reverted to her old ways of chewing the fur in nervousness, unable to cope with the visiting grandchildren of the owner.
On 18 March 2017, to address her deep-seated fears, #1 was enhanced as follows:
#2. CC10.1 Emergencies + CC13.1 Kidney & Bladder tonic + CC15.2 Psychiatric disorders + #1
As there was hardly any improvement in the next 2 weeks, #2 was substituted on 31 March by:
#3. CC11.2 Hair problems + CC15.2 Psychiatric disorders + #1 in water as before and also in vibhuti for external application
After 3 weeks of using #3, fur started growing again and the owner continued the remedy in drinking water, but stopped applying vibhuti as Abby would lick it and start chewing her fur. Thereafter, owner did not make contact for 7 months, though remedy was being given daily. On 4 December 2017, the owner requested a refill and informed that Abby’s fur had grown fully, there were no more bald patches, she had stopped chewing the fur, and her nervousness had decreased substantially, though she was still shy of strangers and kids. So, #3 was substituted by:
#4. CC15.2 Psychiatric disorders + #1
As of 28 August 2019, #4 was stopped since Abby was no longer nervous of noise or people and none of her other symptoms recurred. The practitioner gave the following in pills:
#5. CC1.1 Animal tonic + CC17.2 Cleansing...OD in her drinking water. The dosage will be tapered down gradually according to the comfort of the owner.
Editor’s note: CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic was not needed as CC15.2 Psychiatric disorders includes it. The error occurred since the practitioner had just started practice. Also, it is advisable not to give remedy directly in alcohol.
