Crystals for Cats
Cats are especially sensitive to subtle energies of crystal healing. Most people collect crystals simply due to the fact that they’re so beautiful and amazing to look at, but crystal healing is a healing technique that works through resonance which can help produce and attract certain desirable traits that can be beneficial to both you and your beloved kitty cat.
Crystals are beneficial for cats, as they are a very low-maintenance way of healing—
perfect for felines!. You can lay crystals on your cat to allow them to absorb positive energy from the stone, or you can set crystals near your cats to guard them against sickness and predators.
Think about where your cat tends to spend a lot of time. For example, if she tends to stay on windowsills, consider putting a few protective rocks there to prevent unwelcome visitors or accidents. You can also use crystals to redirect your cat’s energy or remove any evil auras from a pet that likes to travel outside the home.
Remember, cats are intuitive and will usually tell you what crystals they like to be around. Always listen to your animal and follow their lead. If your cat isn’t on board with the crystal work, it could derail things and waste valuable time.
Some general ideas for attracting your cats to crystals include the following.
Allow your cat to interact with the crystal on their own to see if they approve of it
Slowly incorporate crystals into spots your cat likes
Put tiny crystals on your cat’s collar or around their dishes for unobtrusive work
Avoid immersing crystals in your cat’s water dish because some of them can be poisonous to your feline friend. Instead, lay them around the water dish for the effects to work.
It is important to have a clear intention for the outcome you desire for your cats. Keeping a positive atmosphere throughout the household will help utilize the specific effects of certain crystals.
The following crystals have a track record of doing well for cats. However, since every cat is different, it’s a good idea to do a trial and error to see which one fits best with your furry buddy. It would help if you also made a decision based on what you want the crystal to do, as each has a different purpose.
This healing crystal is one of the best ones to have in your feline-friendly arsenal of tools. Chevron amethyst is a powerful stone that works to heal both stress and actual tangible pain in pets.

If your cat suffers from low confidence, some Howlite can help them feel better in no time. This crystal is synonymous with courage and can encourage your cat to be brave in the face of any obstacle. Howlite is an excellent stone to give a fearful cat, but it can also help keep both you and your cat safe.

If your cat has an abusive past, rose quartz may be what they need to feel better and accept their new home.

Clear Quartz goes with anything and everything, so give it a prominent decorative place in your home. You can also line the outside of your cat’s bowl and water dish with Clear Quartz and put a bit around their collar for maximum effect.
