After I first starting using oils I discovered their helpfulness for pets, as well as people. My cat had started acting very strange, stumbling around, walking sideways, and falling off things. The vet said he had either had a high fever or suffered a head injury from an abusive neighbor or a near-miss with a car. Nothing could be done.

Rosemary was one of the few oils I had at the time and decided to try it. I put a few drops down his spine and within a day noticed an improvement. It was probably a week that I continued that treatment 1-2 times a day until he was fine.

Sometime later this cat got very sick and stopped eating or drinking. I knew he was going to die. With prayer, chicken broth, and again rosemary oil, he regained his health.

Recently, he was in a cat fight and got badly beat up. When he came in, he curled up on his perch and would not move. His face and ears were bloody and swollen and he would barely respond to me. This time I tried various oils, especially frankincense, thieves, and lavender, but ultimately went back to his old favorite (actually, he hates the smell, but has learned to tolerate my oiling him). In just a couple days he was back to normal, minus a chunk of ear, without ever having had to visit a vet.
