Hey, indeed, long time no see..
(but we miss more folks, Indem has been away way long too; though he studies & helps teaching, so doubly busy..)
Do you meditate?
Your higher self can give him the message, animals are very susceptible for such, more than we grown ups usually
apart from that, it might be wise to put energy into the next person in your old place:
* may he/she adore cats
* may he/she treat the cat with love and respect
* may he /she make sure the animal is free from suffering
and remember, cats are very smart. They know where to get food and who to go to.
btw: The cat being so skinny can be a flea thing; we had a cat, well nurtured, but never increased in weight
all kinda stuff in the belly, which comes along with even just some flea's can upset the tummy so,
that nutrients are not taken in as well..
Hope your move goes well,
and you settle in with ease
having a new Home in no time ^-^
