HEALING AND ANIMALS Animals don’t have medicine. What does a cat do if it has an upset stomach? – it eats grass and throws up. If an animal has an open wound it will lick the wound clean and sleeps. So where do animals learn this? Some are basic instincts and some are taught by the older family members. Teachings can be through demonstration and through communication (far more than you think) Human communication on the other hand has opened the doors to lies, deceit, mistrust, propaganda and God knows what else and this is what we now have to deal with to evolve to the next step.
