Talking with Your Pets Every Day

People that have the best experiences with their pets are the people that communicate with them on a regular basis. There's no trick to it and you don't have to be a trained animal communicator to create an environment of communication with your pets. There can be many ways to communicate with your pets too. There's talking of course, eye contact (although some breeds may become agitated with long direct contact - know your breeds,) smiling and praise, petting and affectionate contact, play and enrichment activities, singing, head and facial gestures, and numerous other forms of contact.

The first rule of thumb is to realize that your pets are intelligent, conscience, aware, complex, thinking, individuals, that are very capable of understanding you. A panel of today's leading scientists (including Dr Stephen Hawking) recently proclaimed animal and human consciousness the same.

It helps to start when they are young pups or kittens, but it's not necessary, even an older adopted pet will understand you if given the chance and all the love in the world.

How Did My Indoor Cat or Dog Get Fleas?

There's usually one good answer to this puzzling question - you or one of your human family members! 

So how and why did you bring fleas into the house? You didn't roll around on the grass with Rocky and all the neighbors' hounds - right? Did you take an afternoon nap under the trees with the Jones' orange tabby last week? I didn't think so!

 Fleas tend to jump onto your pants legs and other body areas (smelling or sensing your warm blood - their food)  when you walk across grass, brush by bushes, common public areas, even just a door mat where other animals have been.  If you live in an apartment building or townhouse the concentration of pets in your area make it even hard to control fleas. People walk their dogs by your entrance or common walkways numerous times per day. if you use an elevator, it increases the likelihood by thousands of times per day since your neighbors probably walk their dogs via the elevator, and you and your pets are a very captive audience....

Midnight Intruders Cause Big Problems For Your Pets!

Well it's happened again. We have a new client with animal intruder issues in their yard. We were told by their 2 cats during an Animal communicator session that an orange tabby and a grubby, smelly wildlife "thing" (we later thought was a groundhog or Opossum) was coming into their yard at night. The pet parents had never seen either intruders. During the night the client setup a wildlife cam and caught both intruder's images (to the left both images are shown) As animal communicators  we call that a double confirmation! We have already started to help with Displaced aggression in pets issues with the pets indoors are going through from this type of problem.  

If your pet is showing sudden, unexplained aggression issues, you should set up an animal communication check-in with us, you never know what is going on until you actually talk with your pet. You can start your animal communication session sign up here online.

In The Naming of Cats, Can an Animal Communicator Help You Understand Your Cat's Real Name?

In the Sci-Fi film classic Logan's Run,  two-time Academy Award-winning actor Peter Ustinov, surrounded by several hundred cats, explains the naming of cats and why they all have three names in this folklore poem...

The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
It isn't just one of your holiday games;
You may think at first I'm as mad as a hatter
When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES.

First of all, there's the name that the family use daily,
Such as Peter, Augustus, Alonzo or James,
Such as Victor or Jonathan, George or Bill Bailey -
All of them sensible everyday names.

There are fancier names if you think they sound sweeter,
Some for the gentlemen, some for the dames:
Such as Plato, Admetus, Electra, Demeter -
But all of them sensible everyday names.

But I tell you, a cat needs a name that's particular,
A name that's peculiar, and more dignified,
Else how can he keep his tail perpendicular,
Or spread out his whiskers, or cherish his pride?

Of names of this kind, I can give you a quorum,
Such as Munkustrap, Quaxo, or Coricopat,
Such as Bombalurina, or else Jellylorum -
Names that never belong to more than one cat.

But above and beyond there's still one name left over,
And that is the name that you never will guess;
The name that no human research can discover -
But THE CAT HIMSELF KNOWS, and will never confess

Now to go beyond this legendary poem, as animal communicators we can dig deeper into cat (and pet) names. Cats within their own circles have names for each other. Animals communicate telepathically, so there are names that they share and recognize each other by within their own communication means. Sometimes these names can correspond very closely (if not exactly) to the pet family names we have chosen.
