Miracles in the veterinary world in spite of heart attack and renal failure
Gataki flat lined on Tom in 2001.
Gataki lived 13 more years. Credit for his life extension was thanks to scent, sound, sacred geometry, intention, his rose quartz heart shaped crystal, plus his daily consumption of SON Formula, beginning in 2006. SON Formula is medically proven to help as the dietary protein substitution in cases of renal insufficiency, which was Gataki's primary health challenge.
The rest of the story will be posted here soon.
3-16-2014 - After getting home from enjoying The Mighty McGuiggans perform at O'Reillys Fort Wayne, and then going to a great Greek diner, Liberty Diner, for a late night snack, I did the usual routine of letting the dogs, Rigley and Buddy, in and out the back door.
Gataki then petitioned for lap time and was honored for several hours. He died in my arms around 5:15 A.M. knowing he was loved and not abandoned.
Being abandoned was Gataki's issue in life.
Gataki's primary lesson to us was how to properly deal with our life issues so they can be resolved. The lessons learned as a result of resolving can then be used to teach others.
I am hoping Janet and Shawn Watson can clear up our confusion as to exactly when Gataki entered our lives.
Gataki was an abandoned, approximately 3 week old, kitten, whom we rescued at Omega Diner, a Greek owned diner, so thus the Greek name for "little black cat", Gataki. Tom thinks it was late 1998/early 1999. I think it was late 1996/early 1997.
Gataki's entry into and exit from our lives began before, and ended after, a meal at a Greek diner. Ironic? We believe it was the Divine timing when the veils were open for this angel of a kitten turned cat to rejoin his birth mother who passed within three weeks after he was born.
Gataki was very proud of his personal catnip patch. Once the flowering began, he demanded only flowering tops.
One of Gataki's skills was the use of reverse psychology - hissing upon one's approach and then switching to loud purring and kisses within seconds from being captured and held.
Gataki trained us well, learning to sit up like the other dogs to perform for special treats.
We are all going to miss this long haired and furry little black boy.
Norman and Kelly Jo Myers-Madoian sent the "four legged boys" a pumpkin outfit. The pumpkin outfit fit Gataki best. As you can see in the photo above, Gataki obviously did NOT enjoy the accoutrements to his natural beautiful midnight black fur which he wore so very well.
Licks and snuggles definitely were among Gataki's special skills. Gataki loved licking peanut butter and pasta sauce off of Tom's fingers, snuggling between our dogs (he thought he was a dog) Due to a birth defect resulting in renal insufficiency, Gataki ate SON Formula, by choice left beside his food bowl, all of his adult like. Because of his natural choice, Gataki outlived the dogs, Trouble, Mojo and Tucker.
Leash waking and the modeling of clothing were NOT among the list of Gataki's many skills. I tried dressing Gataki as a kitten and teaching him to walk on a leash. Fortunately, Dr. Ed Rademacher talked me out of these attempts by explaining these activities were fine for real dogs, but just were not right for cats, even if the cat did believe it was a dog.
