I don’t know about you, but I had a very exciting weekend!
Our beautiful cat Sitka, decided that she wanted to explore the world on her own and made a dash for it on Friday afternoon. She is loved by us all, but mostly she is my daughter’s cat.
My daughter and I were away for the afternoon and when we returned, we could not find the cat. We know that when she sleeps she is quite dead to the world – so we thought, she is probably hiding somewhere sleeping, she will show up when it’s time to eat.
Well, dinner time came and went and there was no sign of Sitka. We looked in all the rooms at least three times. We looked in the basement, we looked in the back yard – no sign – not a meow, no sound of scratching. We were sure she was in the house, because who would let her out? She is an indoor cat and we are all careful not to leave any doors open.
I consoled my daughter and myself that she would show up, and we all went to bed exhausted. I said a little prayer to the universe to look over Sitka, because I had no way of finding her. I called on my (transitioned) mother to find Sitka and bring her home. There was nothing else to be done.
I woke up a couple of times during the night hoping to hear her meow or scratch – nothing, not a sound.
Breakfast, and no Sitka. That confirmed my suspicion – Sitka had somehow found a way to get out of the house. Sitka has a very good appetite – she does not miss her feeding times.
No one was awake. I decided to check the house and outside again – still no sign.
My daughter woke up weeping. Now the whole house was tense. We went hunting again. My daughter was hysterical.
Humm…I thought…knowing what I know about the teachings of Abraham, how should we be handling this situation?
I noticed that I did not feel a sense of loss, or worry about Sitka. My concern was directed more at my daughter. I wanted to teach her that “everything is always alright, and that she should let the universe take care of Sitka”.
I called both my children to me. I held my daughter close to me. Then I allowed Abraham’s teachings come as they may.
I told them both that the Universe looked after all of nature, plants and animals and that Sitka would be looked after too. No animal or plant ever went hungry. I pointed out to my children that it had not rained, so Sitka should be able to trace her own scent back to the house. My daughter said “but she is not a good cat – she doesn’t know how to do that”. “If you think it then you are creating it” I told her. “Besides, animals are born with everything they need to know, and they have a more aligned connection with Source”
Then I said to them “I went to sleep last night thinking what fun Sitka must be having –she is on an adventure doing things she has never done before, I am pretty sure that she is not sitting outside somewhere weeping, no – she is probably trying to catch a butterfly! So why not think of her like that?”
“Besides”, I said to my daughter “you have to let people as well as animals do what they want to do – imagine how you would feel if you wanted to leave home as you do to go and live on your own, and what if I locked you in the house and said you couldn’t go? Sitka went because she wanted to go outside – she had the choice to not go just as well – afterall, our other cat didn’t go”.
“Your cat is teaching you an important lesson” I said “She wants you to learn that people and animals can come and go, you need to keep your self aligned – it’s Ok to feel grief but no Ok to stay in the vibration of it for too long. Your cat wants you to know that whatever happens, everything is always alright and things always work out for you.”
“Remember that you are asking a question of the universe and the question is “where is my cat?” Remember that the vibration of a question is not the same as the vibration of an answer – you must allow the answer to come and it will not come as long as you keep repeating the question – “where is my cat?”.
I guess my words soothed my daughter, because the sobbing stopped.
I said to her “you know this stuff – you know that you must find a way to be better aligned even before you start looking for her, because she is out there having fun, and if you are not having fun you will not be on the same wavelength as her, and you might be right where she is and not see her or hear her – there is no point in going out into the neighborhood to look for her before finding your alignment”.
My children hear me talk about Abraham all the time – they know this stuff, certainly at an intellectual level.

Our cat went missing few days back, and whole day we were all out there looking for her.... We were disappointed and feeling guilty...my daughter cried whole day and night...i decided to google " lost cat ..law of attraction "because, im a believer of loa! Universe took me to this page!! After reading mahoons blog.. We all decided to change our vibration... And started being happy thinking of how much fun our cat would be having outside... We expected her to be back, so we made her tiny bed..filled her bowl with food and water...i even mailed mahoon thanking her for sharing this experience.

Just as I was fretting that my cat Button is no where to be found I land on this page. It has been more than 3 hours she has been away. I am a firm believer in the universe and the law of attraction. Button is a very smart cat and I know she has not gotten herself into any trouble. I am bound to leave for a trip in a couple of hours and I was contemplating calling off the trip until button returns. But I know that butnu will not like that. She’s a cat who loves her life and lives it the way she wants to and I know she would want us to do the same. I have told her though the universe that I want to see her and feel her before I leave for my trip. Please say a little prayer to the universe guiding her back home. Thank for all that you read

Thank you so much for your amazing beautiful story! I try to remember that I need to stay positive no matter what. But when so many things are going wrong in your life sometimes you begin to lose hope. And Im still practicing how to turn off all the negative voices that are trampling over any bit of hope I had left. So I was sitting on the couch crying thinking to myself. What do I do?!?!? Then all the sudden the L.O.A. popped in my head...long story short I come across your link, and after reading it... I've never felt so relieved! Im so happy and hopeful that i can feel his fury body in my arms! I can't wait for that little rascal to get Home! he disappeared last night, but because of you I am CONFIDENT he's on his way here! Thank you so much!... And thank you for that warming motherly touch..."she's probably out catching butterflies." Hahhahah thank u!!<3

Thank you dear person for writing about this. Helps me think that Ginger is out there having a time of her life chasing a squirrel and being happy and fed by good human beings.

hey! i just wanted to thank you for this blog post. I truly believe that it’s because of you that I found my adorable kitty. After reading your story I cleaned my house, painted and lit up some insence to really align myself. I also read that cats like to come out of hiding at night, so after my little ritual I come out to give one last look.. and guess who I find in the garage!!! Thank you so so much for this blog post <3
