             Congratulations to Denise S. of San Diego, CA on the newest addition to her family. Johnnie, is a new kitten who joined the family which includes Sam, a 3 year old cat and Brandy, a 2 year old Labrador. Congratulations to all!
             And Donna P. of Livonia, MI shared a wonderful experience with us. When Cassidy, her cat passed away, Cassidy told her during a session with Animal Connection that she would try to come to visit her in her dreams. Well, Donna said that Cassidy did just that. Cassidy looked well and although the dream was short, Donna was so grateful that Cassidy visited.
             Jenn H. of Pittsburgh, PA is fostering a new kitten named Munchkin. The fun part of this fostering is that Jenn’s sister is going to take Munchkin into her family at Christmas and what a surprise gift that will be for her son! Now that’s a great Christmas gift.

“Dogs need to sniff the ground; it’s how they keep abreast of current events. The ground is a giant dog newspaper containing all kinds of late breaking dog news items, which, if they are especially urgent, are often continued in the next yard.”  
– Dave Barry

Law of Random Comfort Seeking: A cat will always seek and usually take over the most comfortable spot in any given room.

From the Heart

During the past 18 months, Lucy, a sweet orange tabby cat, has had a lot of change in her life. She stayed at her home without her person for a short period of time and then joined her person, Mike, in an assisted living facility. Then unfortunately, Mike passed away and Lucy now has a new person.

But through all of this change, Lucy had a friend looking out for her. That friend is Susan B. of Fairport, NY, who was Mike’s girfriend.

When Mike first went to assisted living, Susan visited Lucy and took care of her until she could move in with Mike. And Susan arranged for Lucy to join Mike at assisted living. And sadly, when Mike passed away, Susan made that sad time positive for Lucy by finding her a wonderful new home and family.

I know that in communicating with Lucy, she is extremely grateful for Susan who continued to watch out for her and keep her up to date on all of these changes.

Although Susan has her own animals, she shared her love and kindness with Lucy during difficult times. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Susan. We also want to thank her for going above and beyond to be sure that Lucy continues to have a good life through so many changes. Thank you, Susan, from the heart…. From Animal Connection.

                                                                       The Kindness of Animals

I’m sure all of you have had an experience with an animal where they seem to have shown a special kindness toward you.

I remember my father telling me how he’d lay on the floor with his Welsh Corgi and she would lay down next to him with her head on the front of his neck, where he had recently had surgery. Her kindness came in the form of knowing where my dad needed healing and doing the best she could to heal him.

Genevieve B. of Melbourne, Australia emailed Animal Connection about her special Welsh Black Galloway gelding named Andy, who came to her when he was 2 ½ and is now 16 years old.

Genevieve said that when she was younger and had something on her mind and wanted to cry, she’d go out to Andy and lean on his shoulder. He'd often turn around and nuzzle her arm like he was saying its ok. Or she’d just sit in the middle of his paddock and he would come over, and hang his head near hers.

When Genevieve was 3, she was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. She told me that sometimes when she was schooling Andy, she’d have to stop to either get her breath back or cough.  As Genevieve sat in the saddle, Andy would often turn around and his muzzle would be nearly touching my foot.  This was his way of comforting her, as he just left his head there, looking at her and waiting until she was ready to go on.
Sometimes our animals can actually go a step further and take on illness from their person in order to help them. I had this experience with Sylvester, my male cat. 

I was going through some very stressful times and during this period, my cat, Sylvester, developed breast cancer. When I communicated with him about it he said that he was trying to take my stress away by taking the stressful energy on himself and it manifested itself as the cancer in him.

Sylvester and I had a serious talk. I told him that I learned a very good lesson from his illness, and as much as I appreciated what he did for me, he shouldn’t take on this type of burden for me because having him in ill health wasn’t good for either of us. In my heart, though, I know he made a huge sacrifice for me that cannot be described fully in the word, kindness.

Another animal who was doing a similar “service” for her person is Daphne, a beautiful cat who is part of Dionne Q.’s family in Santa Monica, CA. Dionne suspected that Daphne had a tendency to take on her pains and worries and Dionne was concerned about this.

Daphne admitted that she had difficulty with this aspect of her healing skills. I suggested to Daphne that when she does her healing work that she allow the illness or worry to leave her person and just go out into the universe to be dealt with. I stressed that taking this on into her own body could bring bad health to her, which is certainly not what Dionne wanted for her. Daphne listened attentively and told me that she realized that she must act to help without being hurt herself.

Our animals can be wonderful healers both physically and emotionally through their acts of kindness. Look to them to help you but without harming themselves. And don’t forget to tell them thank you for all the little acts of kindness they provide to you each day in their own unique ways.

“There is no snooze button on a cat who wants breakfast.” -- Unknown

A German Shepherd, Doberman and a cat have died. All three are faced with God who wants to know what they believe in.

The German Shepherd says, "I believe in discipine, training and loyalty to my master."

"Good," says God, "then sit down on my right side."

"Doberman, what do you believe in?" asks God.

The Doberman answers, "I believe in the love, care and protection of my master."

"Aha." says God. "You may site to my left."

Then God looks at the cat and asks, "And what do you believe in?"

The cat then answers, "I believe you are sitting in my seat."
Customer Comments

From Shirley H. of Friendship, MD… Thank you Danielle.  Your gift of being able to communicate with our animal friends is a wonderful gift and I am so grateful you are willing to share your talents with many of us who benefit from the information you are able to obtain from our animal friends that we would have no way of knowing otherwise.

From Jenn H. of Pittsburgh, PA…. I love the redesign on the website! 

From Kelly B. of Denver, CO… I hope that you know how precious your skill is and how grateful I am that you share it with me and Finn. Thanks for your part in making it better over the years.

From Geri Ann S. of Phoenix, AZ… I enjoyed reading the story about my Mickey and Lily in the latest newsletter - it brought back memories!  The postscript to that story was that Mickey and Lily eventually became friends, and when she died, he hid under the bed for several days - I believe he was grieving for her and missing her.
