“As every cat owner knows, nobody owns a cat.”  ~ Ellen Perry Berkely

Helpful Hints

Here are a couple helpful hints for winter…..

Cats sometimes curl up inside cars near the engines to keep warm. Remember to bang on the hood of your car before starting it to wake up any sleeping cats.


Dogs can suffer from frostbite. After bathing your dog in the winter, remember to make sure your pet is completely dry before you take him outside.

Molly, Buddy and Sandi

Ways to sneak another horse home, and get it past your husband:

Throw a $100 bill behind the couch. Yell "Fetch!!" While family members are fighting it out you can sneak anything (up to and including a troop of Marines) up the drive, past the house, and into the pasture.

Blame El Nino: The new horse washed in at high tide!

Wait for Halloween. Dress the new horse in a bad horse costume and march him right into the barn.

Swear it's your best friend's new horse, come to stay until she breaks the news to her husband. Meanwhile she can be saying the same thing to HER husband.

Have UPS deliver the horse. Tell your husband they have the wrong address.

Sneak the horse in at midnight. Return to the house wearing only a trench coat and skimpy negligee. - you guess from there

Don't buy another horse. Join the foreign exchange program: you feed, house and culturally broaden the horizon of a young foreign-born horse for 2 years. (Of course you have to mail the neighbor's elderly Shetland pony off to Europe in exchange).

" This horse isn't ours dear. He said he's on a scavenger hunt and has to find 2 suckers with a checkbook.”

                                                                 Can You Communicage? Yes!

​I am often asked by people what special abilities I possess that allow me to communicate with animals. My answer is a simple one.  I don’t believe that I am unique in my abilities.  In fact, I believe everyone can communicate with animals.  However, what I do have that others may not possess, is a framework for knowing how to communicate and then most importantly, the willingness to practice my skills.

Communicating telepathically with animals is something that all of us can do.  In fact, most of us did this very naturally as children.  As we get older, we realize that our society doesn’t accept telepathic communication as the norm.  So as we grow into our teens when peer acceptance is so important, we become cluttered with our daily responsibilities and we move even further out of touch with this childhood animal connection.

But as adults, there is still hope.  You can unearth these skills again.  Communicating with animals is an ability we all have, but one that may need to be enhanced or practiced in order for us to use the skills effectively again.  After all, if you haven’t ridden a bicycle in years and then get on one again, you feel a bit shaky and a bit unsure.  With a bit of practice and familiarity, you’re almost as good as you were as an 8 year old….well, okay, maybe not quite as limber, but you get my point.

Things aren’t much different in the world of animal communication.  It’s just a matter of bringing back to the surface those long forgotten skills that you once took for granted and in many cases didn’t even recognize.

Easier said than done, you say?  Well, in some cases, you’re right. But here are three key points that I believe are helpful.

The first is having a framework of ideas about what communicating with animals means.  In a nutshell, it means understanding how people who can communicate do their work.  Did you know that communicators use all their senses to interpret animal thoughts?  The communicator may see a picture in her mind’s eye or hear a conversation which is something like what you hear when you read to yourself.  Or you may receive the information by feeling the emotions of the animal or even through smell or taste.  So perhaps you’ve received a communication and you just didn’t recognize it for what it was.  You didn’t have the framework.

The second is the ability to revive the uncluttered childhood mind to allow you to receive the communication. As an adult, we have many thoughts going on at the same time.  What room is there for an animal to squeeze their thoughts in?  The key here is to be able to quiet your mind and only think of the animal.

And finally, there’s the questioning.  What we once took for granted (Super Heroes, the Easter Bunny, communicating with animals) our adult mind questions and reasons away.  However, each of you reading this article has a huge advantage over others.  On some level, you do believe or want to believe in animal communication or you wouldn’t be here.  You’ve passed a big hurdle.

Most of you at some time in your life have probably communicated with an animal.  It may only have been a glimmer of information or brief feeling you received. My hope is to help you recognize those moments for what they are. They feel wonderful. And the closer we can all feel with the animals in the world, the better all our lives will be.

And for those of you who want more than the occasional glimmer and want to formally communicate with your animals….yes, you really can.

Life is hard, then you nap.

Curiosity never killed anything except maybe a few hours.

When in doubt, cop an attitude.

Variety is the spice of life: one day ignore people, the next day annoy them.

Climb your way to the top--that's why drapes are there.

Never sleep alone when you can sleep on someone's face.

Find your place in the sun--especially if it happens to be on that nice pile of warm, clean laundry.

Make your mark in the world--or at least spray in each corner.

When eating out think nothing of sending back your meal twenty or thirty times.

If you're not receiving enough attention, try knocking over several expensive antique lamps.

 Always give generously--a small bird or rodent left on the bed tells them, "I care."

When you go out into the world, remember: being placed on a pedestal is a right, not a privilege.
“When I play with a cat, who knows if I am not a pastime to her more than she is to me.”  ~ Montaigne (1533-1592)

“My husband said it was him or the cat….. I miss him sometimes.”  ~ Anonymous

“For me a house or an apartment becomes a home when you add one set of fourlegs, a happy tail and that indescribable measure of love we call a dog.”
 ~ Roger Caras

Customer Comments

From Mary H. of Paradise, CA ...Thank you so much for spending time with my animals. You will find this very interesting...I went to see Noah on Sunday.  Much of the dull, sad look was gone He looked at least a hand higher!  As I started in to see him, your email popped up.  I think you must have just finished communicating with him! He has been acting much more like his usual self, so I thank you. It will take us all a long time to heal.  I thank you for your part in this process.

From Hope D. of  Bolton Landing, NY…. I can't thank you enough. Although the three of us cried our eyes out, you also made us smile for the first time since we lost Garfield. I didn't think Teresa would ever feel like herself again. She has just been so devastated. You did something me or her brother couldn't do. You put a smile on her face. You described our precious Garfield to a tee. Just like with Pucker, you have brought some healing to my family. Teresa just keeps reading it over and over. The tears flow then she smiles. Thank you so much.

From Susan B. of Fairport, NY… Dear Danielle, I wanted to tell you how moved and surprised I was when I read the newsletter article From the Heart about Lucy.  It brought tears to my eyes. Thank you so much for your kind words and condolences.  

From Christa M. of Holly, MI…. Danielle, as an "old" subscriber, I want to tell you that I adore the new layout of the newsletter and the website.  It's so clean and professional looking!
