I trained my mother's cat to do QiGong form and after a while, the cat had evolved into the teacher, sitting in the teacher's chair and leading the forms. After doing forms, I would instruct cat to "meditate" and she would sit there in front of me at my feet and meditate for a much longer time than I would. Mother would ask, "What is she doing?" and, of course, I would say, "She is meditating." When she passed away, I envisioned that the cat had taken up an unknown form in the universe, known only to God, and went to a place formerly reserved for passed over high masters. Will she come back? I think she is enjoying her part in the Universe--a part that we can't really imagine in our own minds.
