Animal Connection has been communicating with Pixy of Phing Phing C.’s family in Singapore since Pixy was rescued.

We are so happy for all of you!
And congratulations to Lee D. of Calabasas, CA on the addition of a new cat named Curzon. After Curzon settles into his new home, he will be going to shows with Lee. Isn’t he handsome?

  What is a Reassurance Session?
Reassurance sessions can help both you and your animal through a stressful situation. From being left at home when you go on vacation, to moving to a new stable or moving to a new house, having surgery, adding a new animal to household and much more, a reassurance session can prepare your animal for the changes that lie ahead as well as give you some peace of mind.

Here is a comment from one our clients who used this service.

"Thank you very much for talking with our fur children. I'm certain it was beneficial for all of us and we will certainly be contacting you again. Your reassurance to Sara in particular makes a big difference in letting us enjoy our vacation." Larry C., Virginia Beach, VA
Reassurance Sessions are $45. Click here if you would like to place an order or go to the Services tab at the top of the page. 
Words of Wisdom
I recently had the pleasure of communicating with Ruby, a cat who is part of Sara C.’s family in Long Beach, CA. Sara won a free session in our annual photo contest and wanted to know Ruby’s thoughts on a variety of subjects.

Well, it turns out that Ruby is quite the philosopher. Not only did she answer Sara’s questions but she shared many of her philosophical outlooks on those topics.

Although I have come across a few of these philosophers in my communications, they are usually few and far between and I always enjoy it when they share their outlook on the life.

On one topic, I asked Ruby what had happened to her some years ago when she was went missing for four days from Sara’s home. Sara noticed a big change in Ruby’s personality when she returned as she was much more loving and affectionate. I told Ruby that Sara was curious about how and why this time away from home changed her.

Ruby told me that she couldn’t get home and she thought she had lost her family forever. Ruby told me how this experience truly scared her and made her realize that sometimes she took things for granted.

Ruby went on to say that when she came home, she wanted Sara to know how much she appreciated and loved her life with her. And then Ruby shared the philosopher cat’s gem of wisdom….Ruby told me that sometimes an experience takes you to a place you just don’t expect and the bad turns into something very good.

Have you had that happen in your life? I know I have in mine. We get ourselves into a set of circumstances that seem terrible at the time, but as Ruby said, sometimes the bad can turn into something very good.

What a positive way of looking at bad situations

Thanks, Ruby for sharing your Words of Wisdom.

In memory of
 Kitty and Sam
Our most sincere sympathies to
Natalie S., and Tom P.
  on the loss of their loving companions.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the animals you had the honor of knowing and loving.

God said, “I need somebody strong enough to pull sleds and find bombs, yet gentle enough to love babies and lead the blind. Somebody who will spend all day on a couch with a resting head and supportive eyes to lift the spirits of a broken heart.”

So God made a dog.

From the Horse's Mouth - Feature Article
 What are they looking at?

Have you ever wondered what what your dog or cat is looking at when they seem to be staring at a blank wall or up at the ceiling? It does seem puzzling to watch your animal companion stare and be inquisitive at what appears to be nothing.

Several clients have asked me to ask their animals what this is all about. Although the details may differ between those I have asked, their answers are all the same…..they are looking at a spirit.

Some animals have told me that they are seeing friends or family who have passed on while others are seeing spirits that they do not recognize. And I’m sure the next question you have is whether or not they are just seeing animal spirits or possibly human spirits as well. In the animals I have questioned, they have seen both.

So now the question is, why can our animals see these spirits, but we don’t always notice them? In general, our animals are much more in tune with the spirit world than we are. I have been told that they communicate with animal family members who have passed on and notice when they visit the family. They also see spirits that they do not recognize in their house. Sometimes they enjoy the visit, while other times, the spirit disturbs them because they feel it does not belong. The animal may also feel that they need to protect their family from the uninvited guest and aren’t quite sure how to go about this.

In some cases, I have been asked to solve this dilemma which is obviously disturbing the animal and his or her people.  In these cases, I begin by asking the animal to ask the spirit why they are there. I do this because it seems that the spirit has chosen to make itself know to the animal and there seems to be some business which much be completed.  Depending upon the reason, but in most cases, I have suggested that the animal respectfully ask the spirit to leave. Most times this works, but on occasion a spirit can be particularly stubborn about wanting to hang around.  First I try to provide the animal a way to convince the spirit to leave, but if that fails, I may be asked by the animal’s person to contact the spirit directly to ask them to move on.  In two extreme cases, I’ve had to suggest to clients that a shaman come to the house to use their talents to have the spirit move on.

But most times, this is not the case. It’s just a friend or family member visiting and the animal welcomes the visit.

Animals do vary in their ability to see and communicate with spirits, just as we do, however, they do seem to have a much better natural connection than most people.  In general, animals are more in touch with their spiritual side. I’ve had many tell me that before they pass on, they see the larger picture of why they came to earth and were part of their person’s life. They also tend to understand why their own death occurs when it does even before they depart.

Some animals, who are older souls, have a deep understanding of the spirit world and how their soul has evolved over their various lives. I find it interesting that they are such wonderful teachers with so much to share. I always think I am so fortunate to have had the opportunity to know these wise souls and learn from them.

I also find it interesting that many people think of humans as more highly evolved or better than animals. Yet from my experiences in communicating, we  should appreciate how spiritually connected  our animals are. After all, while we see bare walls, they see the spirits of those who have come to visit.

So the next time you notice your animal companion staring at the wall or up at the ceiling….. there may be more going on than there appears to be.

Customer Comments

From Sara C. of Long Beach, CA…. Wow! That was fascinating! You sure captured my Ruby’s personality. I read all that with her snuggling with me and it felt so right on. That past life info was really interesting. It would make a lot of sense. 
I can’t thank you enough for this opportunity. It really was such a gift. 

Natalie S. of Shingle Springs, CA… Wow, thank you for all of that.  It really puts me to rest on worrying about Kitty. Thank you again for sharing this with my family.  So glad to hear from Kitty.

From Linda L…..  Thank you so much for "getting together" with my Millie.  It was a first for me - and I felt almost as if I were there with the two of you.  So special!  

Of particular interest was your reference to how Millie attached a certain importance to feeling that her purpose has to do with healing.  She is the only dog I have ever had who, very early on, would seek out a wound on another's body (human or animal) and would tend to it with sniffing and licking.  And this is regarding broken skin, bruising, torn muscle.  It seems uncanny - but she will find whatever ails you and attempt to heal it!  We sometimes call her "Medicine Millie" 

She is certainly my love, along with the others, and I thank you for helping me to know another level of her heart!
