About a year ago I had to have my cat Charlotte put to sleep. She was one of the most
beautiful cats I have ever known. It was really hard to do. I had Charlotte for about 17 years and
was quite attached to her. She had gotten older, as cats do. But one day she would not eat her
food. And for Charlotte that was a big deal because Charlotte loved to eat. At that point I knew
something was very wrong. I began to cry. Looking back I must have known that it was time to
say goodbye to her.
I had spoken to Kat (one of Foretell’s psychics) about this earlier. She had said, “you will
know when it is time.” Well, it certainly was time. I took Charlotte to the vet. The prognosis was
not good. Even if they fixed her up there was no guarantee that I wouldn’t have to come back in a
month or so and go through it all again.
I agonized over the decision again and again, but in the end I just wanted Charlotte’s
suffering to stop. At about 8:30 in the morning I gave the ok for the vet to put her to sleep. The
vet gave her the injection. I held her in my arms until she was gone. I could not stop crying. Even
now, recounting it over a year later is still difficult.
That day was August 15, 2009. After that day, for three weeks straight I would sit every
day at 8:30 am to remember Charlotte. And I cried and cried and cried. After a while I began to
wonder what this was all about.
Now I am no stranger to processing my emotions, or past lives. I had had the good
fortune to do several years of workshops around 1994-1996 with a top notch trance channel, and
more or less have devoted myself to clearing out all my past karma. (This has taken over 15
But somehow this seemed different. I mean, crying every day for three weeks straight –
over a cat? Most people would agree this sounds strange (including me). I talked again to Kat
about this whole thing. I really wanted to know where this was all coming from. And I knew from
experience that it had to be either from this life or a past life.
As Kat related it, Charlotte and I had been together for something like 15 lifetimes where
we had been together over 10 years each time. So there was a strong connection from that. I had
know about previous lives with Charlotte, but there was another one waiting to surface.
It turned out that I had been a monk in a French Monastery in the Pyrenees a long time
ago. I am not sure of the exact time frame but I think it was between around 1200 and 1400 AD.
At that time, Charlotte had been a wild cat. She was not as big as a mountain lion, but somewhat
smaller, although larger than a regular house cat. I think she had black tufts on the tips of her
Charlotte apparently wasn’t a good hunter, so she would go scrounging around for food.
And being a monastery, we had a kitchen and must have left the back door open. At some point
we became aware that Charlotte was coming into the kitchen looking for food. I think many of us
in the monastery became enamored of her, myself especially. I think we began leaving food for
her. I was told that I was the only one Charlotte would let near her. I don’t know if I was actually
able to touch her or not. But for whatever reason, she took a liking to me.
After some time, one day during prayers, we heard a loud rumble. Charlotte had been
living in a cave somewhere down the mountainside under the monastery, and the roof of the cave
had collapsed. We rushed down there as fast as we could, but there was nothing we could do. The
rocks were too big. And even if we could have moved them, it was too late for Charlotte.
So that was the major piece of the puzzle that was missing. Knowing this hasn’t changed
the way I feel. But it does put everything in perspective. There have been some difficult days, and
I can’t say that the last year has been especially encouraging for me, largely because of losing
Charlotte. But I think I am getting through this, and I think the fact that I can write this now is
testimony to that. I just wanted to say thanks to Cat for helping me understand what was going
