Breathing in each day with joy - the fountain of youth? 


Today is my friend’s birthday. She’s 18 years young. Funny thing is no one ever guesses she's in her late teens. Most drop her back at least 5-7 years, including her doctor. Good living? Maybe? 


Some look at her and think she’s a bit odd. I say we’re a perfect match. We’ve both been through a lot. She’s taught me how to survive in ways I didn’t know I’d need to know. She inspires me each day. She finds joy in the little gifts of life; such as a sunny morning, time with her best friend, a warm meal, a good nap, the love of a little butter to mask the taste of icky things, pure joy of sightseeing in a car and even better a RV.


This past year, my friend lost her sister, moved and downsized, had a serious health scare and had to adjust to life with many changes in a short amount of time. Sure, she was a bit confused at times. She even had moments of being simply depressed and mourned her sister. But generally she’s always up beat and breathes in each day with a great amount of joy and gratitude. I would look at her and think, “Gosh, if we could all encounter life’s troubles with such a robust attitude, we’d all be much better off.” 


She is my inspiration. Often my joy. And even though, most see “just a cat” I see a wise being, whom I learn from daily and somehow makes me laugh in the darkest of moments. And even makes the lightest moments even lighter. 


Today, I pay homage to the very unique energy of my friend, Daffy. I’m honored to have spent 18 years with you. I’m blessed to have shared my life you and your sister. I don't even mind that you're a blanket hog or always want my pillow. I suppose it only makes sense. I do make it nice and soft. And the fact that you want to pull your fur out with the blowing of the wind or roaring of thunder and now seek me out instead of your sister as your security is proof that you are a survivor. You may not like something, but you'll find a way to cope with it. You'll find a way to seek comfort until the scariness has passed. Even now with your health complications, you cope with your medicine knowing that it'll make you feel better. Of course, you know I'm at your side the whole time as well. Your joy for life is unmistakeable. Daffy, you remind me of a Timex watch. You've taken a lot of licks this past year. But you certainly are ticking with a might! If there is a fountain of youth, Daffy, yours must be joy for life, gratitude for what is given, a willingness to adapt and a tenacity to survive no matter the mountain that is placed before you. I'm very grateful for your tenacity and for all you've taught me and continue to teach me. May you continue to be your goofy, inspirational and wise self for many more years to come. 


If this made you think of your furry family, I would love to hear about how they inspire you.

Daffy ready to "roll" in turtle home
Daffy ready to "roll" in turtle home

You can’t judge a critter by their shape


You’ve heard that old saying “you can’t judge a book by it’s cover”? How about “you can’t judge a critter by their shape?”


Let me explain. I adopted three kittens, whom were born in my hay barn about 17-1/2 years ago. My veterinary adopted one of the three and I ended up keeping the other two. With the wildlife in the neighborhood, they became inside kitties. They were spayed, as was their mother. However, their mom insisted on a life outside and snuck back outside. 


These two kittens were very different from each other. One was a striped grey kitty, whom I named Winnie (as she loved sitting like Winnie the Pooh). She was very quite, unless she had something of high importance to say. Such as “I would like a puppy”. Or “She spit in the water. Can I have clean water? With ice?” She also enjoyed watching TV, especially if there was a big dog on the screen. She fetched toys like a dog and tried to open doors with her paws. I would tell people she was often too smart for her own good.


The other kitty was extremely vocal. She needed to announce her presence as she entered or left the room, no matter the time of day. She would talk just to hear herself talk. I named her Daffy. I always thought she was a bit whacky and funny like Daffy Duck. Perhaps Daffy was not as brainy as Winnie. But then again, my grey striped fur ball set the bar extremely high.


They both were snuggle bugs. You could pick up Daffy and immediately she’d hug you. Winnie could not fall asleep unless she was touching me. Very sweet spirits. The two were together every day of their lives for 17-1/2 years. Good or bad, high moments and low moments, they had each other’s backs. Of course, I was there as well. But I’m a far substitute for a furry sister. 


Daffy has always been the one to greet people. Although, she’d look to Winnie to ask if it was safe. In times of bad weather, hard winds or power outages, Winnie would find Daffy and they would reassure each other. If Daffy was feeling down, Winnie was by her side. Daffy hasn’t always been as thoughtful. She’s tried to be there for her sister in her way. But at the same time Winnie has been much more independent. Daffy is the more co-dependent in the relationship.


In mid-July, this all changed. Winnie died very unexpectedly. It hit me like a ton of bricks. I saw all three kittens actually born. And now I witnessed this sweet spirit pass before me. Daffy was a witness as well. Just as Winnie had wanted. 


I worried, through my grief, “How would the more fragile Daffy handle the physical separation?” Of course, as an animal communicator, I kept the lines of communication open. I talked with Daffy constantly about the process. She expressed her confusion. Just as many parents have struggled to explain the transition of life to young children, I found myself fumbling to explain it to my very sad, curious kitty. She would wander the house looking for Winnie. Even though, she saw the whole process. Even smelt her lifeless body, she still worried about her sister. She wanted me to take her food and water. “She needs to eat and drink, mama.” she would say in a very concerned tone. Daffy would show me Winnie’s favorite toy and ask me to take it to her. Daffy even kept asking when she was coming back. When I would say she wasn’t then she’d respond with “Can we could go visit her?” Very similar to what I’ve heard parents go through with young children and their questions after a loved one passes. 


Finally, in my own grief, I asked Winnie to visit. This was only a few days later. She came without hesitation. We sat and talked as we did when she was in body. Then I asked her if she would also visit with Daffy. She did. They sat motionless. Talking. Their secrets. If anyone else had seen this event, they would’ve thought Daffy was having a stroke or some other medical issue. Daffy was content. They both were content. The sisters were visiting as they had done so many times in life. Now, it was just slightly different. 


From that moment, Daffy adapted like an acrobat to almost any situation. We visited friends in August and stayed in their camper, while their dogs barked at her. She never blinked. Sure she meowed on the ride to their house. But she was caged too. Honestly, I don’t like being caged either. Makes me scream too. Then we stayed in a hotel for almost a week. She adapted as if she’d been there her whole life. She’d hop up and look out the window at people outside, take a sunbath and thoroughly enjoyed herself. 


Our latest adventure was a trip to Boise in a 28’ RV I recently purchased. She LOVES the turtle home! Often asks “are we rolling today?” A friend went with us on this maiden voyage. She was shocked at what a great traveler Daffy is and how well she has adapted to life. Perhaps Daffy is even a better traveler than my friend.


It was funny on one of our excursions through Boise, Daffy and I ended up in the downtown area at about the noon hour. Talk about one happy kitty! She jumped up in the passenger’s seat, front paws on the dash and leaned as far forward as possible to watch the people walking in the crosswalk. I’m certain if anyone saw her, they gave up their lunchtime cocktail. It’s not everyday you get stared down by a cat in downtown Boise. Perhaps a dog if your lucky. But a cat? 


Daffy has certainly proofed that you can never judge a critter solely by their previous actions. While all actions make us who we are today, we can shift and adapt to almost anything if given the chance. Thank you for that great lesson, Daffy!


That's it for now. Until next time, try looking at the so-called givings in your life with a new, fresh outlook and see might possibly blossom with a slight shift in energy.

Live like your dog, enjoy your moments


Recently I worked with a client at a local lake, Donner Lake. I was helping her with various issues (awe, yes I work with the human animal too). Suddenly, as we sat there looking out over the crisp lake, with the sun beating down and a plethora of dogs joyfully running in and out of the water, she turned to me and said "Isn't it beautiful how all these dogs, which have never met, can play and get along with no issues? There's a lot people could learn from them."


It was a great observation! Especially in a location that holds a lot of pain and sacrifice. There were no judgements among the frolicking pups. They all were enjoying the sun, water, a few toys and each other. A peaceful scene. A joyful scene. A scene humans could learn from as we go through daily life. These dogs had great energy


Judgement is weight and stress. Drop it and live in the moment. That's what our animals generally do. It's a wonderful gift to live in the moment, free of what was and what is yet to be. 


I challenge you to live like your dog, enjoying life, every moment, for a full day. Then sit back and reflect. Which energy would you rather keep going forward? The weight of judgment and stress? Or the joy of being alive and in the moment? Of course, this isn't saying you can neglect the daily responsibilities of life, which can naturally carry stress. However, it's how you choose to handle that stress, which makes all the difference. Can you set the stress aside for an hour, an evening or even a meal and just be in the moment to fully enjoy it? Try it. Let me know what your experiences are in living in the moment. 


That's it for now. Until next time may you and yours be safe, happy and healthy. And try to live in the moment.

Connecting with our furry family as told by an animal communicator 


The comfort an animal can provide is immeasurable. They often know us better than anyone else. They know our secrets, sorrows, pains, griefs, fears and yes, even our joys. They know how to let us be us and expect nothing more. They seem to want to lift us when we need it and know how to wait if we need that too. They are masters of begging for walks or attention, which surprisingly shifts our energy as well. They find joy in what we may sometimes find mundane. "Seriously, you want to chase this stick and carry it home? You really like the smell of my old, unwashed gym clothes? You’ll lay next to me when I’m sick and just be here, no questions or wanting?" Wow! We truly are blessed to share our lives with these beings. 

However, when our furry companion of so many years, suddenly takes that final walk and departs his physical body for good, it leaves us with a huge hole. We become unbearably sad. We may be glad that the animal is no longer in pain or has completed his earthly mission, but the need for that connection still exists. Is there still a way to make that connection? Yes!

A perfect example of this happened a few weeks ago. I was at a client’s house. She was  naturally still mourning the passing of her little dog of 17 years. Her furry friend had moved on about three weeks prior to my visit.  As I sat there talking with my client about how she was doing, I saw the little dog joyfully bouncing around the room in spirit. The spirit dog began saying "Why is she ignoring me? Does she not love me anymore?" 

As my client sat in her rocking chair, swaying back and forth, the little dog finally settled down and sat by her person's feet in a beautiful ray of sunshine. The dog continued to look up at the woman asking why she was being ignored. I acknowledged the dog with a smile and a wave, which the owner did not catch. I finally, stopped the woman as she was retelling stories of the life spent with her little companion. I said to her "would you be so kind as to rub your palms together and then reach down in front of your right foot with your right palm facing down?" She did as I requested and immediately burst into tears with an ear to ear smile, which reminded me of a kid on Christmas morning. She nearly yelled "It’s her! I’m not sure what she did, but it’s her!" I explained she’d just received a kiss on the bottom of her palm from her little friend. Suddenly the sadness that had been there seconds ago disappeared. The woman was happy to be reassured that even though the physical body is gone, the spiritual body is still around her. 

How wonderful this little dog, in spirit, knew that her person needed to feel her to be at peace. Isn’t that just like our animals? No matter what, in body or not, they are always looking after us.

 3 easy steps to connect with spirit animals


People often ask me if there's a way for them to connect to a spirit animal. Meaning their animal has "passed over the rainbow bridge" as I've heard it beautifully stated on more than one occasion. Actually, this isn't that difficult. Even if you don't meditate or know much about energy, you can connect.


Most spirits, once they leave their body, will still visit or be around those they loved when they were in their body. You may hear, smell, feel or even see them. If you don't, no need to worry. The easiest way to reach spirit is while we sleep. We are not bound by the restrictions and limitations we and society put on ourselves. 


This is the method I generally recommend to people. Do this prior to bed or as you lay in bed just as you start to nod off to sleep. Simply ask God or Higher Power (whatever you refer to source power as) for the following...

1.  That while you sleep your spirit friend (give the name - NOTE: This works just as well for human as for animal spirits) come to you

2. That you are able to hear and talk with your friend

3. (This is the often the most important part) That upon waking you are able to recall the visit with your friend


It may take a couple days to completely remember the visit. Or it may take a few days for a visit. However it happens, is absolutely perfect for you. You also may be eating lunch when you remember part or get a glimpse of the visit. That is fine. This is always a fun activity. Especially since spirits work in no time and no space. Conversations can be lengthy when translated to our realm. However, it can bring peace if you are still searching for that connection. Remember all that ever expires is the physical. Energy and spirit live forever. So why not keep those relationships going? If you have questions for them, ask. They'll answer.


If you get stuck or frustrated, then by all means take that next step and contact an animal communicator.

Who's the best bird...as told by an animal communicator 


A while ago I got a call from a client. She wanted me to visit her to do a long distance communication with her son's dog. I showed up at her house and was immediately greeted by two beautiful cockatiels. They each had their own cage and both were male. The one closest to the door, Jay, began a communication with me. 

I turned to the woman and said, "I know I'm here to help your son's dog, but would you mind if I took a few minutes and spoke with Jay. He is trying to tell me something he thinks needs to be heard." Of course, she agreed.

I sat down and Jay began telling me how he felt Judy, the owner, didn't find him attractive. That the other bird, Beatty, was her favorite and he was more handsome in her eyes. Jay said how his heart hurt that he was not as loved as Beatty.

I, very gently, relayed this information to Judy. She said, "I knew he was trying to say something. He was out of his cage for about 24 hours prior to your arrival. Last night, as I lay on the couch, he jumped on my chest and put his face directly in mine. He's never done that before. I told him then how handsome he was and how much I loved him. But I knew there was something more."

I turned to Jay. I asked him why he felt like this and how or where he gathered such information. He then proceeded to tell me that Beatty told him. He then showed me pictures of Beatty jumping on his cage, telling him he was ugly, unsuitable and she would never pick such a substandard cockatiel. 

With this new bit of information, I turned toward Beatty. He began showing me repeatedly "survival of the fittest" energy. I turned toward Judy and told her what I had discovered. She then told me that she was preparing to move out of state to care for her elderly parents. When this happens, she will only be able to take one bird. However, since Jay had been with her the longest, she naturally assumed Jay would move with her and she'd find a nice home for Beatty. As I told her this she threw back her head and laughed. "It makes sense," she said. "Whenever Beatty is out of his cage he immediately starts attacking Jay's cage. I can't have them both out at the same time. Beatty is a little stinker!"

I proceeded to tell Beatty that no matter what he would have a good home. I also moved out his competition energy with Jay. The two birds settled down. Judy was happy and then I proceeded to work on the dog, which was the original call in the first place. 

This just goes to show, yet again, that whatever energy you are putting out or talking about, your animals are without a doubt picking up on it and responding accordingly.  Image what energy you must be responding to that you aren't even aware of at this moment. Boggles the mind, huh?

Until next time may you and yours be safe, happy and healthy.

Animals, gratitude and the future 


I am very fortunate. I love what am doing and am extremely passionate about it. In the course of my journey as an animal communicator, I've been able to talk with and help many different animals. They all have different issues, and their people have different issues. While some may have the same type of issue, such as finicky eater or constant barker, the reasons are wide and varied. It's part of what makes this journey so fascinating. I never know exactly what I'll encounter or what the best solution will be until I'm actually there in the moment. It's kind of a rush, from a very grounded centered place. 

During a communication session, I will ask the animal whatever the client wants, try to resolve issues or negotiate a solution between animal and person. I allow the animal to ask his questions as well. These questions maybe about wanting more car rides, more walks, why someone doesn't visit anymore, to name only a few.

At the end of the session, I always ask the people if there's any last communications for the animal. Sometimes there is none. Sometimes it's to relay their love for the animal in their language. It's about a 50/50 split.

However, it never ceases to amaze me that when I ask the animal if there is any last communication for their people (even if the animal is in spirit), they nearly always express one of love and gratitude. Such as, "Tell her how much I love her and how thankful and happy I am to be part of her family." Even those where the animal was viewed more as a "pet" than "family" this sentiment is relayed. To me, it says something about gratitude, and even love. If we look for the negative, we'll find it. If we look for the beauty, we'll find it too. Perhaps animals are rescuing us from focusing on the negative and dragging us to the happier side of life for a fun game of fetch or a leisurely stroll. 

While the grind of everyday life can be grueling at times, especially if you're trying to be everything to everyone, look to your fur children to refocus. They always are grateful and full of love. In the end, it's not who did everything who wins or worked the most who wins. Find your focus, your purpose, zero in on it and when you get off course in the world of naysayers, look to your fur kids. They always believe in you.  They always love you no matter what. Trust me, they tell me. 

That's it for this time. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions for a future blog, please contact me

In the meantime, may you and yours be healthy, happy and focused. ;)

The hazards of Spring cleaning as told by an animal communicator 


Spring has finally arrived. The days are longer. The birds are nesting. The flowers are blooming. And more and more people and getting to those Spring chores and emerging from their cocoon environments to enjoy nature again. What does this have to do with animal communication you ask? Simple, change in activities, means change for our critters. 

Case in point, I received a call from a client who's dog was suddenly refusing to come from the backyard. Not even for dinner or water or even at bedtime. She asked me if I could help

I said yes and immediately asked the dog (this was done long distance) why he was refusing to come inside. 

He replied, "It's scary. They might fall on me!"

I asked him to describe what he was afraid would fall on him. He showed me paint cans, tarps and boxes.

I asked the client if they had such items stacked by the door they wanted the dog to use. 

She exclaimed, "Oh gosh, we've been doing Spring cleaning and painting a spare room. We've stacked all the paint cans and room supplies at the patio door while we work. Did he tell you that?"

I told her that he was scared of the rubbish and debris. If they moved it to a different location where he couldn't get to it, perhaps the garage, then he'd have no issue with coming and going as normal from the house. The owners did make this change and the dog was once again back to his happy self. 

Spring is a great time to tackle projects. However, just as you would keep the needs of your child in mind and baby proof your home, try to keep your fur kids needs in mind too and fur baby proof your home. 

That's it for this time. If you have any questions or have a suggestions for a future blog please contact me. In the meantime, wishing you and yours a fun Spring!

What to look for when choosing an animal communicator


Maybe you've been intrigued by the idea of an animal communicator talking with your furry friends. You want to know what they have to say or perhaps you have a specific issue or question you want addressed. You're ready to take that next step and find the right animal communicator for you. How do you choose? Here's a few things to consider when doing your research:

1. Internet or Facebook. Read their site, what they post and get a feel for who they are as a person as well as a communicator. 

2. Read their "about me" page. This should give you a good idea as to who would be doing the communication. Is it one specific person or a rotation of people? Do they have much of a history working with animals? Sometimes a lot is said in what isn't said. Do they seem genuine? Do they work in other modalities as well, such as horse whispering, energy healing, Reiki, acupuncture, massage, etc? 

3. Read their testimonials. Do they seem genuine? If you have any questions, contact the animal communicator and ask if you can speak with a few prior clients. This shouldn't be an issue if they are an honest an genuine practionceer. However, if they have never been asked to provide this before, you can expect a day or two while they make certain clients are ok to speak openly about their experiences. 

4. Read the "what to expect" page. If they have a what to expect page, read it. Do they only do communications in-person? Or will they work also by phone, Skype or the like? What do they expect from you? What can you expect?

5. Call the animal communicator. You can detect more in a phone call than any other method.     
  • Are you comfortable speaking with this person?     
  • Now's the time to ask any question you uncovered during your research.     
  • Ask how long they've been a communicator. You may already know the answer from your research, but it's good to hear it from the person directly. If there's any difference, then ask why. Some of us have been communicating for a lifetime, but only recognized we were worthy of pay recently. That is ok.     
  • Ask if there is any follow-up.     
  • Ask about some of the communications that the person has received and the outcomes. Often this can be very telling as to the effectiveness of the communicator.     
  • The most important question to ask is if you and your furry friend are good candidates to receive a communication. If you are not in the right space for whatever reason, or if a pet trainer would better meet your needs a good, honest and genuine animal communicator will tell you. 
6. Reflect. You've now gathered all your information. Who made you feel most comfortable, had the most to offer, answered all your questions and seemed most genuine? That would be your animal communicator. I wish you great communications! 

I hope this helps weed the good out from the bad for those looking for an animal communicator. If you have any questions or suggestions for a future blog, please contact me. Until next time may you and your furry friends have happy chats with lots of love and laughter.

You said it and then ....
An animal communicator fixes misperceptions


Perceptions. Have you ever noticed how you can say one thing and it’s interrupted different ways by different people? You may think you’re being perfectly clear. However, what you say from your side of the fence is often received very differently on theother side of the fence.

Here’s a case in point. I was recently called to work with two dogs. Same type of dog. One male, one female dog. The female is about a year older. They are even siblings. The issue was that the female was completely over dominate. So much so that the owners had a difficult time pushing pass the little female dog to get to the male dog to pet him, give him cookies and his "loves". 

I sat with the two dogs. I asked the little female dog why she was doing this and she said "I’m the best. She says so. The best comes first. The best gets the best. I’m the best. Right?" 

I turned to the owner and said, "do you tell her she’s the best?" With a look of shock, she said "yes". Pressing her hand to her heart she went on to explain "but we say ‘she’s the BEST GIRL and He’s the BEST BOY!" 

I told her, she’s not hearing anything other than she’s "the best" all the rest is falling on deaf ears and the perception to her then has become she is the best. Therefore, he doesn’t matter as much and he gets whatever is leftover. She continued to be shocked at my intimate knowledge of their relationship. 

I moved out all the "I’m the best" energy. Then I suggested that they not use that phrase for either dog anymore. Instead I recommended they try "good girl" and "good boy". By the time I left, the little girl dog was already standing backing and letting the little boy dog be loved. 

I received a call a few days later from the owner. Her voice bounced with excitement!  She explained "it’s like we have two new dogs." The "best" phrase was abolished and harmony had settled into the house. The over dominate alpha dog was replaced with a playful one, who let her brother have food and love too. That was several months ago and the dogs are still in a harmonious energy

This just goes to prove that even though you may think you’re saying and doing the right things, they may not be perceived as you would wish. Our animals are very quick to pick up on what we put out for them either physically, verbally or energetically. Is your furry buddy doing something that has you mystified? Perhaps it’s a misperception of your two worlds. An animal communication session can help clear up these miscommunications and bridge the language gap. Want to know more about how it can help you? Just go here for the details.

Until next time, may you and your furry and non-furry family be healthy and happy.

Questions to an animal communicator


I receive questions all the time about animal communication. The questions at times can be far ranging. Here are just a few that pop up regularly. Hopefully, they answer your questions as well. If not, drop me a line. I love inquisitive questions about animal communication and energy. They are subjects I can go on about for days.

What is animal communication?
An animal communicator is simply someone who is able to speak with animals generally on an energy or telepathic level. Validation comes as the animal tells things that the communicator could not know. 

How do you talk with animals?
I suspect most animal communicators do it fairly similarly. We tune into the frequency at which that animal is emitting energy and then begin a conversation. Sometimes my communication is both unspoken and spoken as someone going in and out of two languages and not even thinking about it. 

What do they sound like?
Each animal I speak with sounds distinctly different. Some of the voices they have are very surprising. In fact, my childhood dog was a medium sized terrier. Cute little dog. But the voice he had sounded like he’d been up all night drinking whisky and smoking cigars. Super gruff voice. Sounded like he was speaking from his toes. He also spoke with a lot of profanity, which sounded about right to me. After all he was a terrier. Although, it was hysterical to hear such words come from this cute little dog.

What kinds of things do they say?
The kinds of things the animal may want to talk about can be wide and far in scope. Anything from concern over the owner, to why he’s not going on his regular walk, to what happened to his friend who may have died but no one told him, to even asking for more of a certain kind of food or even (as several dogs have said) "want fun". The last one can lead to behavior issues when they are left to their own devices to create their own version of "fun". These are generally the high energy, young dogs that need a lot of exercise and mind stimulation. 

What got you started with your communications?
This question one I get rather often. I didn’t grown up in a bed of roses, as it were, and I would often would turn inwards and to my animals for comfort. My animals have always meant a safe place for me. They don’t judge. They accept and love. Something we can all learn and gain from that kind of knowledge and acceptance. As I spent more and more time with my animals, the bonds became even stronger and I could feel their connections and their words. Later I pursued a path to strengthening these connections through a some classes. The doors then flung open and I’ve never looked back. I keep looking for new ways to help and new tools to add in my endeavors to help. I’ve had a quest for knowledge with energy and animals. I’ve known since I was abut 5 years old that I would devote my life to helping animals. I just didn’t know how or have all the puzzle pieces at that point. The puzzle became clear last summer and that’s when Yes! Animals Talk was launched. 

Are there any animals that don’t talk?
I have not meet an animal that is unwilling to speak. I will walk outside and the bunnies will even say "hello". The lizards, in the summer, will tell me how nice the sun feels. The quail will boost about their babies. The deer will tell me how yummy the moist leaves taste. It’s really a remarkable thing being able to hear what is being said amongst the animals. However, being able to partake in the conversation for a brief moment is a true honor.

If you have any questions, please be sure to send them along and I’ll address them in a future blog. 

Until next time, may you and your family (including your furry family) be warm and healthy.

The healing power of animals .... Rescuing a pet could be what the doctor orders


Have you ever had a bad day, been greeted by a wet nose and happy face at your front door, and immediately felt better?

Maybe this sounds familiar? You're watching a scary or sad movie on TV, your furry buddy hops up beside you, perhaps gives you a wet kiss, you start stroking his fur and suddenly you don't feel as much anxiety?

Or you've been really sick. Maybe you've been curdled up in bed as you recover and your furry friend is right beside you. If you move, he looks up at you to make sure you're alright. He often needs to touch you, to be connected as a parent would to a sick child. 

The healing power of animals is unmistakable. 
* They can shift and calm energy. Which is why they are brought into to hospitals, rehabilitation centers and even funeral homes. 
* They can also lower blood pressure and heart rates.
* They can ease and reduce stress, which is why we feel better when we connect with them after a tough, stressful day.
* They help build self esteem.  They love unconditionally, which is always great for helping anyone's self esteem. In fact, there is some evidence that service dogs used for depression are so successful that prescription medication is reduced or no longer needed. 
* They help with building relationships. Going to a dog park or on a walk often means there is time for the "parents" to talk.
* They encourage you to exercise and engage in the world, which is good for both mind and body.
* They are often charters, which means laughter and that's always good for mind, body and soul.
* Lastly, if you rescue an animal then, they are very appreciative. They know you rescued them. They seem to have a need to repay the "debt" of rescuing. How many times have you read or seen an story about a rescue pet that saved a family from a house fire, home intruder or alerted others to a non-breathing child? Rescuing a dog, cat, horse or other animal is a wonderful idea. You save them and then they save you. It gives you a good feeling of having done a good deed, yet you benefit. If you're suffering from depression or low self esteem you've just kicked started your endorphins without popping one pill. It's a win-win and a start to a beautiful relationship.

If you, a family member or someone you know is depressed, sad, disconnected or needs a bit of healing, maybe rescuing a pet is a good prescription. At least it's something to consider. 

Until next time may you and your family (including your furry ones) be healthy and happy.

Love your furry friend, talk with him


We love for our animals. They greet us when when we arrive home, help us with chores around the house, go for walks with us, sleep alongside us and often know things no one else does. They share our happy moments. Our sad ones too. They comfort us with a wet nose and hug when the blues hit or cuddle up with us when a scary movie comes on TV. They become almost like our furry counselors. They don’t need to say a word. All is translated through a look, a nuzzle or a touch. We know they understand. Or at least we need to believe they do. With each story, cuddle and secret told the love grows.

As the love grows, science shows our health improves too. Studies prove that just by having an animal as part of our families, our lives improve by the following ways:
  • Decreased doctor visits, betterhealth 
  • Improved immune health and decreasedallergies 
  • Improved mental health, less depressed and better at handling life changes
  • Improved heart health 
  • Promote activity and exercise 
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Better social skills
  • Decreased work stress
  • Cancer detection 

At this point you're probably thinking, "Wow! I’m sure glad we have a furry family member." Yes, life certainly would be different without at least one furry friend. They also, enjoy our company. Have you asked if your furry buddy loves you as much? There are some proven scientific signs that can reveal some of his feelings. For instance if you answer yes to any of the following he certainly loves you:
  • Cuddles with you after eating 
  • Sleeps with or near you 
  • Misses you when you leave
  • Happy to see you when you return
  • You love him

While these signs are a good start, wouldn’t it be great to take them even further? Have you ever wondered what your furry friend really, truly thinks or feels about you? Does it baffle you when he stares and twists his head? Are you perplexed why he wants out and then right back in, then turns to you and looks as if you should know the game that’s being played? Well, you can have your answers. You can simply ask him. How do you ask? By using an animal communicator you can ask your friend all sorts of questions that have you puzzled. Like: 
  • Why do you leave toys in my left shoe?
  • Do you think of me as mom/dad?
  • Why must you always bark at the same person everyday?
  • Why do you sniff butts?
  • What’s so scary under the bed?
  • Why are cars so much fun?

Really, whatever has been on your mind, you may ask. He’ll answer. Sometimes the answer is simple. Sometimes shocking. Sometimes silly. But there’s always an answer. Why not just ask? That's what animal communicator do.

Until next time, may you and your family (including furry ones) be happy, healthy and warm.

What can an animal communicator do for me?


I often get greeted with "I don’t know exactly what you do, but my dog does the strangest thing. Do you think you can help?" 

I’m certain your furry friend does something odd that makes you think, "what on earth are you doing? Have you lost your mind!? Do you even have a mind!?"

Here’s just a brief list of some behavior owners have found odd:
  • pees when certain people arrive, not scared just overly excited
  • throws up as soon as too many people approach
  • hides when people approach, but otherwise super calm and happy
  • calm and happy until it’s time for people to leave and then goes nuts with anxiety
  • stares at blank spots in the room as if something is there
  • runs figures eights in the back yard
  • overly attached to one person and mopes when that person is gone
  • thinks he’s a human rather than a dog or cat
  • throws up as soon as he gets in the car or does anything he doesn’t want to do
  • crawls under the covers of the bed when you’re trying to make it
  • likes to lick your toes until you swear they’re prunes
  • finds it fun to hide toys in your shoes
  • brings you treasures from around the house and outings as gifts
  • decorates her litter box with various items
  • likes to mimic you when you talk
  • regardless of how many toys and deterrents you buy, he still insists on digging a hole to China
  • chases planes that fly overhead
  • will only walk on one side of the road 
Still asking yourself what an animal communicator can do for you? Wouldn’t you like to know why your buddy does these weird acts? If there was an easy solution to help remedy, if needed, wouldn’t it be worth it? 

For instance, when asking the cat who crawled under the covers every morning "why" she simply replied "I’m cold and it’s warm." Easy fix for this problem was to place a bed for her next to the heat register. She’s happy and mom can make her bed in peace. 

Generally, speaking for each odd behavior, there’s a very logical solution. Ask why and then find a solution, if needed. That’s what an animal communicator does. Sometimes there’s a bit of negotiating involved, but there’s always a solution. 

Now, that I’ve explained a bit about what an animal communicator is, what would you like to know about your furry friends?

That’s it for this time. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions for a future blog, please contact me.

In the meantime, may you and your furry ones have a wonderful week.
