I'm a firm believer in the healing power of the purr.

When I'm not feeling well my boys always rally around me, even when they didn't get along. They'd come to a tentative and temporary truce. MowMOw up close to my face where I can bury my face in his fur and Book always on the other side of me against my side where I can reach over and stroke him.

I can practically feel my BP lower when we're all cuddled down like this.

My cats always make me feel better when i'm sick or unwell... or in any kind of pain. Its usually Mystery, he will lay near or on whatever is hurting me and purr up a storm. Or if i'm simply sick he will lay near my face and purr to me. It helps me alot xD the other two also become more affectionate and lay by me more often, when Mystery isnt around, to help me feel better, usually Shadow. I find it amazing ^_^ they always really do make me feel better while theyre with me.

Shadow's behavior changes whenever my sister is sick or hurting, he tends to stay in bed with her and not move all day. For a cat who likes to cry at the door every 10 mins, this is a pretty big change xD

Ashes is the one who shocks me the most. He isnt an affectionate cat all that much, and prefers sleeping away from people. But whenever my little 4 year old brother is in bed sick, Ashes becomes unseperable from him. They make the cutest little team. I will hear mom yell from the other room "Ashes, get off of him!" And my brother tell her back "No mommy, he is my buddy! I want him to lay on me." xD Ashes will stay near him until he feels better. Its so adorable and so amazing, because as miserable as my brother may feel, he does seem happy to have Ashes by him. Cats definitly are capable of healing in many ways xD

Kipling stays with me and doesn't leave my side whenever I'm ill and stuck in bed. He purrs continually and washes my face on and off. My husband brings up his food and a litter box to our room as Kip won't leave and will go without eating. It does drive me a little nuts but makes me feel better at the same time.

The ear ache hasn't come back, by the way. And Princess hasn't done that strange thing again at all.

Hmmm, have they ever "healed" me? I can say without a doubt they have brought joy, peace and inner strength, so YES, I guess that qualifies as healing.

Cat owners' prayer: "Lord help me be the person my cat thinks I am"

Healing? I'm not sure...at least for physical healing. Emotional healing? Then definitely! I remember about a day or two after we lost Smokey, I was sitting on the couch crying. Star, who was also very close to Smokey, came and sat in my lap and stayed there for a good 45 minutes to an hour. He and I comforted each other while we both grieved for a cat who shouldn't have died the way he did...

My cat hasn't "healed" me, but it's really amazing that they know when we aren't feeling well. One time I had a migraine and I was lying on the couch trying to sleep and my cat jumped up on the couch, and walked up and down my body about 3 times (my mom joked that he gave me a "cat scan". lol), as if he was trying to sense where I was hurting. And then when he figured it out he laid down on my pillow against my head and purred. He didn't heal my migraine, as I still had it when I woke up, but he took care of me the way he knew how.
