Cuddly Catz Program
A prison in Washington State has begun testing out a new program, "Cuddly Catz," matching inmates with cats who have been rescued from shelters as a way creating an environment where the inmate must now be responsible for more than himself.
The A P reports that Inmate Joey Contreras, 28, was transferred from a 40 man dorm into a two-person cell in March. But it's the cell's third occupant, "Princess Natalie," who has made the biggest difference in his daily routine.
"Nobody was wanting to adopt her," Contreras said. "We got her and it's been awesome ever since."
Scheduled for termination Princess Natalie was living in a shelter and scheduled to be put down before she was adopted out to the new program.
The minimum security Larch Correctional Facility where Contreras is being held allows prisoners that have exhibited good behavior the opportunity to pair with cats. And if the prisoners don't continue to stay in line, they will lose their cat privileges and be returned to the general prison population.
The reported goal of the program is to give the prisoners some positive responsibility with will hopefully help transition them during their eventual integration back civil society.
"In prison, they tend to think about No. 1," prison counselor Monique Camacho said. "Now they have to look out, care for and have responsibility for something else."
When I first met him he wouldn't even have made good fish bait, he was scrawny. He, his brother and Mom lived in the alley way next to my apartment and we would see each other as I left for work in the morning and returned home in the evening.
Then one rainy day about seven months ago I came home to see 'fish-bait' sitting on my step in the rain looking miserable and wet and I knew instinctively tragedy had struck. He was skinny but clearly at an age that he still needed mommas milk. His brother wasn't around and that wasn't a good sign and no sight of momma, hmmm!
I told him if he could make it up these long big steps on his own he could at least eat a meal and plot his next move on a full stomach, he was down to that. The steps weren't a problem at all and that is how Nibiru and I met.
After about two weeks of hanging out and eating dinner together he had practically moved in. We was chillin' as the males of our species will do and I asked him . . .
What should I call you?
He got a quizzical look on his face and for a moment I didn't think he was going to answer me but he finally said Nibiru.
I was a little taken aback by this and said . . .
First of all what do you know about Nibiru and further more most people barely know how to pronounce Nibiru let alone know what it is, you'll be subject to ridicule, laughter and a trip to the house of pain.
He blithely ignored the Oingo Boingo reference and explained to me that because I enjoy the topic so much it would be the only fitting name and that it was his way of saying I got your back, which was really cool.
You really have to respect folks that do something nice for others and expect nothing in return!
Besides it lends itself to so many really good nicknames
• Nibirurenski- In search of
• Nibenstien- Casual greeting
• The Nibster- Glad to see ya
• Nibbles- Up close and personal
• Nibs- Chillin'
He's still a little scrawny and I'm always encouraging him to eat more but he never does, now if I'm eating something it's a different story. Seems he likes Zingers which is clearly a sign of good taste and he is more of a chicken than fish kind of guy.
One day he told me that he had been sent to help with my spiritual balancing. This is when he lectured me on the role his species has had to do with the evolution of mankind.
This is what he had to say . . . the commonly held myth has it that the cat/human domestication program began with humans trying to control the mice population that proliferated due to the recently discovered concept of storing grain and other food. Being clever as humans tend to be at times they brought in cats to control the mice and a lasting bond was formed.
However what it isn't so well known is that The Powers of the Cosmos, the Council of Nine if you wish anticipating this step in man's evolutionary thinking process decided to introduce a more domesticated version of the many current cat species that exist on this planet. They could use man's idea of pest control to their advantage by introducing a species that evokes compassion and love in a humans heart, giving humans a chance to show love when members of their own species are unable, unwilling or unavailable to them.
All domestic cats were to be genetically engineered from wildcats to possess mysterious cognitive powers of insight and abilities along with unique personalities as way of sharing some traits with the human race and cementing the relationship.
Nibiru went on to say that the bond made was predominantly to encourage love and compassion in the human race and the vermin control was just a convenient excuse propagated by those spiritual masters that remain on this planet to help the spiritual downtrodden to find their way.
I told him that I had always suspected something of the sort but it was nice to finally confirm my suspicions.
The Mysterious Cat
He went on to reveal to me some little known details about the secret world of cats that not many humans are privy to or so he says. He told me that the spirit of the cat is elusive and adaptable and that many cat entities had lived thousands of reincarnations, due in large part to their short life spans but also as a way for the cat spirits to spread their spiritual healing far and wide.
He said to consider if all the pets you have had in your entire life were just one soul personality in different bodies, I said I thought that was an interesting possibility.
He said that because of their shortened life spans but important work they had to do, they were given nine extra lives, a gift from the Council of Nine. He said this gift had already come in handy in this body a couple of times and I cut him off when he tried to go into the details, something about a hungry opossum . . . !
He made sure to be clear in no uncertain terms that no cat on the face of the Earth would ever admit that they were ever 'owned' by a human and even insisted that most cats are completely in control of whom they live with and who they choose to cohabit-ate with.
He went on to say that most cats preferred to go outside and take care of business and only use the litter box because they are given no other option and are being polite, hey I didn't know?
He said that their eyesight is much better than humans in that they are able to see into other dimensions and see objects and forces that don't register to the human senses. That cats can sense geographical upheavals, bad weather and danger far in advance.
He told me that the Wookiee in Star Wars was really modeled after a bi-pedal humanoid Cat Species of a distant Galaxy, I wasn't aware of that.
He summed it up by telling me that in Ancient Egypt even the accidental killing of a cat was a penalty of death and that very recently the mummified remains of over 300,000 cats were found in Egypt.
Love and Compassion
Do you believe Nibiru's claim that cats were sent here to help with humanities spiritual awakening?
I asked him what he thought of his namesake and what he knew about it and he was reluctant to talk about it, more interested in getting his ears rubbed.
I don't blame him but after a while he said that he was surprised the cover-up had been essentially fairly thorough and that so many humans were completely unaware of another planet in our solar system.
I said 'I know'
He continued, even SOHO images and tectonic plate shifting has been kept mostly under wraps. The Worldwide media silence on flooding, earthquakes and tsunamis and there causes have been kept to local coverage and hasn't made the national news, leading to even more confusion and disinformation.
He said that this tactic had kept the World's populations from not only communicating to each other but prevented many from seeing all of the pieces of the puzzle.
I said . . . yeah, and I just saw recently on the internet where another astronomer in South America Koh-Ichiro Morita was killed under suspicious circumstances (murder) while working at the Atacama Large Millimeter Arrays (ALMA) in Chile.
This is a clear message for all would be whistle blowers of the Planet X phenomenon, within the last ten years many astronomers have died under unusual circumstances.
We both decided that it would take a rather large planetary event to wake up the masses to the deception and perhaps motivate them to find the answers to the growing number of worldwide catastrophes and he agreed.
I said you know our neighbor Tom asked me how to spell your name the other the day, Nibs looked at me kinda funny and so I continued, yeah he was having trouble pronouncing your name, same with my Dad he wasn't sure what to call you but once I spelled it out for both of them they seemed to get the picture.
Well no matter how you pronounce his name he is here to stay and His Close Friends Call Him Nibiru.
