Belshazzar

Well things have decided which of the topics are presented and it is “cat.” My sister prior to me living with her, fostered sick kitty cats, but I am allergic, so she stopped, and now goes a Sunday every month to the Human Society where she works in the kitty nursery. She is a great gal indeed. A super sweet human, I am blessed to know, and call her my sister. But that is just a preamble to the post topic, cat.

Ever since I have lived here, I have chased all neighborhood cats out of the backyard, as I wanted the birds to feel safe. I feed them and so enjoy watching them play in the garden. I didn’t mean to be mean but they could hunt another garden. Well then a long haired black cat starts showing up more and more….I would chase him off and he would return to hunt. He started to ignore me and hang out in the yard anyway. even when I was present. As the months roll by, I start to notice he is looking thinner. I say to my sister, that black kitty seems to have lost weight and she says perhaps a neighbor moved away and he got left behind. We still don’t know. I haven’t gotten close enough to see if he/she has a tag. Nonetheless I say to my sister, “We need to start feeding and caring for this kitty?”  As if he is homeless now, we do not want him to be hungry. So from the moment we made that decision, I didn’t see him for like 5 days. Then I was panicked.  Put out food and water, and the food was gone but I hadn’t seen him. There are other cats, so I didn’t assume it was him.

Now he is on my mind and in my consciousness. I sent him reiki, and to the garden. Finally day before yesterday he shows up, still looking thin. I got the name Belshazzar, even though I had heard the name, I had to Google it.

Considering all the wonderfully mystical experiences I have had in the last months this is just more of the same.

From בֵּלְשַׁאצַּר (Belshatzzar), the Hebrew form of the Akkadian name Bel-sarra-usur meaning “BA’AL protect the king”. This was the name of the son of Nabonidus, the last king of the Babylonian Empire before it was conquered by the Persians in the 6th century BC. In the Old Testament Book of Daniel Belshazzar is the last king of Babylon who sees the mystical handwriting on the wall, which is interpreted by Daniel to portend the end of the empire.

I like the New Age metaphor and representation. the Last King of Babylon seeing the writing on the wall.

That could be interpreted in many ways I suppose. lol Anyways I also read this…

That he worshiped the Moon God, Sin….. Being as my name is Sindy, I thought that interesting. lol

Not calling myself the Moon God or anything…lol

So…..last night I come outside early evening the hot sun having just dipped beneath the horizon, so it was light but cooler, and here comes Belshazzar…. He has been all “Hunger Games” skittish hunter, and as I come out the back door, he freezes. If he is a she I should call him Katniss. Anyways he is frigid and anxious, I say to him, “It’s okay kitty, its okay. Don’t worry, its okay. Have some food.” He stops relaxes and listens, I sit down, as I had been watering the trees in the garden, it has been 108 degrees here the last several days, so I enjoy nourishing the plants and trees.

Belshazzar relaxes but is still a bit apprehensive. I go inside for something another, and I am inside for a few minutes, when I come back out I bring my computer, I think I will see if he responds to music? So I play Mangalam for him. He sits about 6 feet away under the tree and completely relaxes even putting his front paws and head down. We have a nice chat and I tell him not to worry about anything, that we will take care of him. I ask him please not to hunt the birds, that he was welcome to the lizards and insect. I have nothing against the lizards or insects, but he is a cat after all, he will hunt. So it was really quite magical. When my sister came home I told her, looks like we have a cat.

Namaste

  1. great story and with a mystical twist. Too bad you are allergic as cats rock ( and so do birds, lol! )

    Namaste,
    Linda

    • Linda~ They do both Rock and give me much enjoyment. It is sad we are allergic but Belshazzar shall have what he wishes. Sometimes cats come to you, and I see that, as well as honor it. So I will do whatever is necessary for him/her, However i feel that Bel wishes to remain outside. I just want Homey to know that he will get what he needs here and take it from there.

      Love you,
      Sindy

    Wonderful Sindy! Belshazzar is one lucky cat!

  3. Hi Sindy, I am also allergic to cats, but I do like them quite a bit 🙂 I was thinking about how I used the phrase recently, “I want to play with the other cats.” I must have been thinking about the musical, “Cats.” Which my mother in law recently reminded me involved an idea of “true name.” I had forgotten about that part of the plot. I decided, however, not to attend a gathering I wanted to attend due to literal cats at the house of the host – my body had been through enough already, and I was sad that I couldn’t “play” with my friends. Likewise, I was glad I made a decision that would result in less suffering. Glad this cat has caught your attention, and so you can exchange some interesting esoteric vibes. I hope the cat and birds can coexist.

    • Hi Ka,
      I am probably allergic also, but since I take Zertec all year long, I would not know 🙂 The cat is my descendant and shadow so cats ” complete me”, haha!

      Thanks for the emails. I will reply soon! Sindy’s posts have been awesome lately. If i was a gambling woman, I would bet she’s in love ( am I right SindySue?)

    • Awe you should have just taken some good allergy medication and gone anyways. I love cats, I had a cat Buster for 8 years, and he died from liver disease, what else. It wasn’t until after he died I realized I didn’t have to live on allergy pills. I still house sat for cats, I just took medication, which like Linda said, I have so many allergies, I take them anyways. lol

      The name though…well I don’t even know, it sort of fascinates me. I have never seen the musical “Cats” although I am not a big fan of musicals, I think I would like “Cats.”

      Thanks for sharing your story with me.

      The birds and cats have been coexisting all along, so yet again I learn a lesson from at cat.

      Much love~
      Namaste

    • lol Mangalam lured him in. He is sitting over in the dark shadows listening now.

  4. Belshazzar, I love the name and the story! Shalom, דָּנִיֵּאל
