today's mending activity is all about surrounding myself with purring cats. did you know that a cat's purr can actually help to mend broken bones? the optimal frequency for bone growth and the healing of fractures is 50 hertz, and most feline purrs fall within 25-50 hertz. if the frequency is higher, around 120 hertz, it can heal tendons and other soft tissues. the cool thing is that the cat doesn't even need to be laying on you - just having a cat in the room helps you to heal. sounds waves are cool like that.
i remember in the weeks after my accident last year, both my cats kept trying to perch on my injured knee and purr me back to health - they were really adamant about it - so maybe they actually know about their healing superpower?
luckily, my two like to lay on my chest in a sort of yin-yang formation and purr their hearts out. i like to think that it's mending mine. ♥
