The Healing of Pumpkin the Cat!
The Healing of Pumpkin: A Miraculous Tale
Lake Country Residents Combine Therapies to Heal Treasured Pet
By: Robyn Green & Martin Green, LCMT & Claire Walchli, Amazon Rainforest Herbs
How do you heal a Pumpkin? Well, it’s impossible for mere humans, but God did it through a combination of therapies and the love of a devoted family!
Pumpkin was a 14-16 (adopted) year old Red-Tabby Persian owned by Pete and Claire Walchli of Pewaukee. During a routine teeth cleaning in April of 2006, at the Small Animal Clinic in Sussex, WI, Dr. Wendy noticed, and removed for biopsy, a tumor on the back side of Pumpkin’s tongue. About one-third of the cat’s tongue had to be removed, and on Good Friday, April 14, 2006, Dr. Wendy called between 2-3 p.m. with the diagnosis: the “C” word, CANCER…the worst thing a pet owner can hear!
It was traumatic for Claire. Dr. Wendy told her “Pumpkin had less than two months until she would be calling her to relieve him of his pain.” The doctor also said that she could not be sure that all the cancer cells were removed from the tongue, as she had to leave Pumpkin enough of a tongue to live and eat.
Pumpkin’s mom, Claire Walchli, had met Martin and Robyn Green about one week earlier at a function in Pewaukee. Alternative medicine professionals were networking at this meeting. Martin is a certified massage therapist, and at that time, he had a practice with his wife, Robyn, called “Sound Bodyworks” in Pewaukee. What made the practice special and unique is that Robyn’s psalmist gifting allowed her to sense and play God’s healing, love and heart for their clients. She spontaneously played and sang, as the Spirit moved her, over every one of Martin’s massage clients. As they have done for their 30+ years of marriage, they functioned as a team to create a safe, secure environment in which clients could fully relax and receive the benefits of their combined gifts.
The miraculous flow began when Robyn sensed she should make a phone call to Claire, that very same afternoon of April 14, just to touch base and “schmooze”, since they had become fast friends in a short time. Claire said later that when they first met, she felt drawn to Robyn, who was standing in a distant doorway in the room in which she was seated. Robyn seemed to display the same reaction in eye contact and walked over to Claire. The two sat at a table and shared many values and intentions as long-time friends often do. The intense conversation was cut short by Claire’s scheduled teaching classes, but not before Martin came over and was included in to the new friendship. It was all amazingly quick and powerful.
Robyn had no idea that Claire even had a cat at the time she made the friendly phone call on April 14th. She asked Claire how she was doing and Claire answered, “That’s a loaded question.” Claire’s voice on the phone sounded distressed and then she told Robyn about Pumpkin and the diagnosis. Robyn and Martin were part of a team in March 2006 that had recorded, by faith, a CD to fight cancer in every system of the body that it could attack.
Robyn told Claire about this and how God has used her before through music in bringing healing to cancer patients, and the two very rapidly decided that there was “nothing to lose” in bringing the cat over for Robyn to play over it, and for Martin to do what most massage therapists call “energy work,” but the Greens call “spiritual work”. Martin and Robyn function under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Their massage practice wass faith based. Martin is a still a member of the AMTA and is nationally certified in massage therapy and bodywork by the NCBTMB.
Claire put Pumpkin in his carrier and drove the 2 minutes to Robyn and Martin’s. At the same time, she called her husband, Pete, who decided to leave work immediately and meet Claire over at Sound Bodyworks. Pete arrived about 5 minutes after Claire did. They were both visibly upset and very emotional. Pumpkin was and is a member of the family. Both Pete and Claire felt a trust in Robyn and Martin to be able to help their precious Pumpkin.
However, Pumpkin, himself, was still coming out of the anesthesia of the biopsy procedure, and was pretty listless, lying in the back corner of his carrier. Since Martin didn’t want cat dander on the massage table, he had Claire lay face up on the massage table, with the carrier on her stomach. Pete pulled up next to the table, sitting in a chair, holding Claire’s hand tightly and with blind faith in what might be possible. Robyn took her place at the keyboards she normally uses for people. Martin called their daughter Jennifer, who is also a prayer warrior, into the room. Martin and Jennifer silently prayed, extending their hands and releasing their faith towards Pumpkin, as Robyn began to play powerful sound, by faith, to release God’s healing flow toward the cat.
Then, she began to sing over the cat, calling him by name, and proclaiming that cancer had no power over him. Claire prayed the entire time. When Pumpkin heard his name being sung, he perked up immediately! His ears lifted, he began to look around the room and become animated, and gave out a perky “meow”. Claire opened the door to the carrier, and Martin and Jennifer came closer with their hands extended toward Pumpkin. The room filled with a tangible comforting presence.
Now, remember, Pumpkin had had 1/3 of his tongue cut out that morning. At this point, he began to lick himself! He gave himself a cat bath! He appeared to “return to normal”, according to Claire and Pete. They were visibly excited and awed at this instant change in their beloved cat.
Claire and Pete took the cat home, and here is where Claire’s expertise and knowledge of the Amazon Rainforest Herb products she marketed at the time became the focal point of the continued outworking of this miracle. Claire put Pumpkin on a very special diet. Claire’s friend and advisor for Amazon Herbs drove to their home and gave them several extremely powerful and pure bio-energetic Rainforest botanicals or “wild foods” in vegetarian coated capsules. They began a regiment of herbs for Pumpkin by putting them in his food and water.
Along with the Amazon herbs, Claire began to play Robyn & Martin’s CD’s, including the “Hem of His Garment-Cancer” CD and the “Tabernacle Massage” CD. The Walchlis make it a habit of playing the cancer CD before leaving the home and whenever they thought to play it. Pumpkin oftentimes woul position himself centered in front of the sound speakers, sitting like a little sphinx with a smile…and fall asleep in front of the speakers while listening!
The day after the Walchli’s were warned that Pumpkin would not be able to eat hard food for several weeks and may have bleeding, he ate his hard food that very day and no bleeding ever occurred! Within three weeks, he began to grow new fur and his tongue began to grow back! After three months and complete bloodwork tests (repeated too), Pumpkin had a clean bill of health!
This picture was taken October 15, 2006, exactly 6 months from receiving the news that Pumpkin was terminal.
He was doing just fine, as you can see. His tongue doesn’t look like it’s hurting him, does it? Because the Lord healed him fully! (See 2020 update at bottom of the page.)

“May God bless you both for using God’s gifts to save our beloved Pumpkin. And for Him creating the rainforest with its sacred, precious wild foods.”
We absolutely believe and know that God heals, both through His children and through nature. We decided to tell Pumpkin’s story because our hearts and our visions are one in desiring health and wellness for people. And now, it seems, God is saying, bring the pets, too! It couldn’t hurt!
Pets don’t exercise any faith for healing – but people can, and even if they don’t, God’s healing is available to them. If you are interested in consulting Robyn and Martin regarding your needs or those of a sick pet or human loved one, we would be happy to speak with you. We don’t guarantee any healing results, but we are always ready to work together, by faith, using our skills, training, and spiritual gifts in the hopes that God may heal your pet or loved one.
2020 UPDATE: Upon speaking with Claire to see if she was still a representative for Amazon herbs and was okay with this story being put online, our webmaster called her. Claire shared that Pumpkin lived another FIVE YEARS after his first bout with cancer! Even more miraculous? Pumpkin got cancer again and Claire played Robyn’s music over him…and the cancer left forever! God’s word says he heals ALL our diseases and we know he loves all creatures, great and small…and is perfectly willing, able and eager to heal animals too.
