Red Rose, “Canterbury”
Cat’s territorial issues.
The flower essence for cats, for helping them with issues
that are specific to cats, especially the big issues that all
cats have regarding their territory.
In the modern urban environment, cats are not always able
to satisfy their natural urge to stake out their own exclusive
territory, and this essence helps them with this issue.
Also very useful for cats that are being moved to a new home,
to help them settle in to the new territory, and to not keep trying
to return back “home”, to the old territory.
A flower essence, made from two rose bushes that were growing in the garden
at our former house in Tainui Street, Somerfield, Christchurch.
There is an interesting little story concerning the discovery of this essence.
When Glenys first bought the house, in December 2002, the cat that
belonged to the previous owner refused to settle into his new home,
which was only a mile or so away, and kept coming back to his old
He was a large black male cat, with white markings, and every time
we saw him outside in our garden, we would telephone his owner,
and she would come and take him back to his new home, until
eventually, he must have become too cunning for this routine, and
he disappeared and was never seen again, presumably having found
a new home somewhere else.
During all this ongoing drama, the cat's owner happened to mention that
he had always loved sitting under these two rose bushes, that it was his
favourite place. So, when, in November 2003, we came to make a
flower essence from these beautiful red roses, there was no doubt as to
what the essence was for.
“I ask that this cat (or these cats), receive this help
in resolving these issues of territory.”
