Nel mese di Gennaio 2019, Florence ci ha lasciato. Bisogna seguire la sua passione, la sua determinazione, i suoi consigli. Ha dedicato la sua vita all’allevamento dei gatti Ragdoll, diffondendo per prima in Italia questi meravigliosi felini. Ci piace ricordarla così, abbracciata ai suoi cuccioli.
He is about four months gorgeous kitten and he can not wait to live
a house, cuddling everyone.
But you, what name would you give to him? …
He was my beloved Ghibli born with the name of Elian delle Bambole , lost after 10 years, on 23/11/2011, due to an incurable disease.
This creature has literally changed my life, saving me from the abyss of depression and giving me a dream to be accomplished for others : Pet Therapy .
Ghibli was lying on my chest every time I had a tachycardia attack, he did funny things when I was down in the dumps , licked my tears when I cried and never left me alone, as if he knew that I was the one who had so much need of him by me. It was impossible, therefore, not to notice hiis being special and healing .
Ragdolls Cats have that peculiar sensitiveness that perhaps humans have lost , and so at IPSE Psychological European Institute of Varese believed in me, in Ghibli , in the benefits of Pet Therapy, and that’s how started our project : Project Ghibli – healing animals .
In recent years we have created a multidisciplinary team, we studied and worked hard, even taking part in the first research project on the benefits of pet therapy with Alzheimer’s patients with mild or moderate level .
Pet Therapy is wonderful but stressful at times, and be in good health certainly helps to offset what you are looking to give to others with what they give you.
I do not know how many cats ” operate ” really in this area, but I know that Ghibli and I have successfully passed a practical examination receiving a final certificate , and that he has shown a great inner balance (a characteristic that distinguishes all operators Pet 4-legged and their human companions ) . Cats , I fear, are often underestimated.
Unfortunately Ghibli ‘s gone too soon but our bond was so strong that I wanted to give him , in my own way , a little piece of immortality to thank him for having been such an important part of my existence.
For love. Out of gratitude . But also because he really deserves to have a special place in the world and not only in my heart.
