"For those who have suffered adversity or misfortune and find these difficult to accept, without complaint or resentment, as they judge life much by the success which it brings. They feel that they have not deserved so great a trial that it was unjust, and they become embittered. They often take less interest and are less active in those things of life which they had previously enjoyed.” – Dr. Edward Bach
Keywords: Self pity, resentment, short-changed, poor me, sulky, irritable, grumbling, bitterness, blame, complain
Animal/pet indication: Sulky, self pity
Helps animals who are bad-tempered, sulky and who appear to be acting out of spite by excessive or inappropriate behavior. Pets who are in need of the Bach Flower Remedy Willow are at times malicious and perform acts of uncooperative actions such as urinating in inappropriate places and destructiveness.
Also helpful for cats that are not using the litter box. Borchelt and Voith indicate that “the most common behavior problem reported by cat owners is elimination out of the litter box. This problem can be due to disease, territoriality, stress or learning difficulties. It may also be because the owner does not recognize that the cats may object to litter trays smelling of daisies and other deodorizers and much prefer the smells the owner is trying to obliterate.” Nevertheless, many owners attribute it to spitefulness. They may punish the cat, thereby increasing the cat’s anxiety and reinforcing the problem, or may begin to resent it, in which case they should take Willow themselves.
