Here's an interesting account by Baerbel Froehlin. Note how she taps along her cat's spine. This is because the energy meridians can be accessed in this way.
The most interesting thing happened today with my very shy cat Dribble. She is almost like a feral cat; nobody is allowed to touch here - ever, including me. She will bite anyone who tries to come close to her. I have to put on protective clothing whenever she needs to be held or get her nails clipped. You can't bribe or tempt her with food; she is the opposite from my cat noodle and extremely picky. She panics whenever we get thunderstorms and hides forever, before she feels safe enough to come out again. I call her "our seismograph", she hides even when before audible or visible indication of a thunderstorm.
I live in the foothills of the Colorado Rockies. In summer we have extreme thunderstorms daily and, of course, this makes life miserable for Dribble. She is not able to eat because thunderstorms are ongoing and she's so scared. She is a very skinny cat to begin with; a nervous little being.
Recently I was able to just gently tap on her back along the spine, just 5 seconds each time. That must have left a huge impression on her because the other day, when the thunder was rolling and the lightning was flashing, she suddenly crept towards me, flat on the floor. Obviously I did represent safety and comfort for her.
I could see the horror and fear in her as she approached me, crawling under my hands for cover as the lightning was flashing outside. Automatically I started tapping along her spine, talking to her about calming down and being safe. I realized she had come to be tapped on.
You could watch her change as she let me tap on her for at least 10 minutes without trying to get away. She stayed and visibly calmed down. That had never happened before! It is clear to me that she approached me to be tapped on so she would feel better during the thunderstorm. It'll be interesting now to see if her behavior will change in general, with EFT making her more affectionate.
