Conversation with a Cat (That’s right, a cat. And yes – an ACTUAL conversation.)

A while ago, I did a post about a conversation I had with my dog, Dolce. We used to have a cat also. His name was Mints and we had him from the time that he was a kitten, but he passed away in his 13th year. We don’t know exactly what happened… we just kinda found him in pieces on our front lawn one afternoon (sorry about that mental image). It was just a few years ago that I began learning and practicing animal communication, so I never got a chance to practice with Mints when he was alive. I decided to have a little chat with him this weekend (and, for those of you who are wondering, you can communicate JUST as easily with a deceased animal, as you can with a living one):

"Make yourself useful and turn on the tap for me..."

“Make yourself useful and turn on the tap for me…”

Me: How did you feel about your life with us?

Mints: Living with you was all that I needed it to be – it was all that I wanted. Even more, if you ask me. I just wish that you could have arranged more time for us to be together, to spend quality time in each other’s arms and heads and hearts.

Me: What would we have done if I had?

Mints: We would have… (Shows an image of him nuzzling my face and purring. I used to push him away most of the time when he tried to cuddle with me because he’d get cat hair everywhere.)

Me: How did you feel about Dolce living with us?

Mints: Dolce was a barbarian, if you ask me. He still is. You need to control him. Ask him to stand still. It won’t hurt him.

That cat is about to snap...

That cat is about to snap…

Me: He really misses you. You were his best friend.

Mints: And he was mine. I loved him till the day I died. I just didn’t want to be subjected to his whims and desires and boisterous behaviour. (Now, that I’m reading this again as I’m typing, I’m remembering that when Dolce was still a puppy, he used to try and mount Mints.)

Me: He wants to do a session so you guys can talk and spend some time together.

Mints: I’d be open to that.

Me: Do you still visit with us sometimes?

Mints: Naturally. I’d like to be part of your time travel affairs – your time spent on the other side. (He’s talking about my holistic therapy sessions. It’s totally normal for the spirits of other animals to come and help me in my sessions with clients.)

Me: That can be arranged.

Mints: (Flicks his tail with satisfaction.)

Me: I wish I’d learned animal communication before you died…

Mints: I know. It’s hard.

Me: Were you really depressed when we first brought Dolce home? (He seemed very depressed for a couple of weeks afterward – we didn’t see much of him during that time and when we did, he usually kept his distance from us.)

Mints: I was mildly disappointed. Took the attention off me.

Mints would have made an excellent supermodel

Mints would have made an excellent supermodel

Mints: (Shows an image of my sister, snuggling with him.) Naturally. I liked her.

Me: You were so cute!

Mints: I know. (He sounds pleased with himself.) I wish I could have stayed.

Me: Tell me about how you died.

Mints: We don’t have to talk about that.

Me: I want to. I want to know! For closure…

Mints: Okay, I’ll tell you. I fell… (Shows an image of him running towards our house) So scared. (Suddenly a large dog – a wolf? a coyote? – appears in front of him.) There were so many of them. All at once, they were surrounding me. Confusion.

Me: I’m sorry you went through that. I’m most sorry that you were afraid – that you knew you were probably going to die and were afraid. I’m sorry that you suffered.

Mints: It’s okay.

Me: Why is it okay?

Mints: Because I’m here, now.

Me: Where?

Mints: Where you can see me. (Smiles.)

Me: Mints, do you think that you’ll ever return to us in physical form? (It’s common for animals to reincarnate and return to human families that they’ve loved.)

He wasn't one of those cats who climbed Christmas trees - he just liked to hide under them (from dogs, cameras, and clumsy humans).

This is one of my fave photos of him because he looks like a cat alien.

Mints: Of course I will!

Me: You will?!

Mints: Of course.

Me: When?

Mints: I don’t know. When I’m ready.

Me: Well, how will we know that it’s you?

Mints: Because I’ll tell you. Keep your eyes peeled.

Me: Is there anything that you want to share with the readers of my blog? Is there anything you want to tell them?

Mints: I would tell them to care more about pets and animals. We bruise easily. Be more spontaneous. Play like a dog or cat.

Me: Thank you, Mints.

Mints: Thank YOU.

Me: I love you.

Mints: I miss/love you, too.

Conversation With a Wild Doe

Hey, my little Monkeys!

Eeeeek!!! I’m so excited to share this little bit of news with you! I was going to do this in a video format, but I can’t seem to find a moment when people are out of the house and it’s quiet around here, so….

Okay, now for the especially good stuff. I really enjoyed sharing my conversation with my dog in the last post, so this week I decided to share a conversation with a deer that I almost hit on Wednesday while driving home from work. The first part is immediately following the near-hit, and the “Later” part took place yesterday evening.

Me: Are you okay?!

(The deer doesn’t respond. There’s an image of her running and the feeling of her heart pounding wildly.)

Me: I’m sorry! Did I scare you?

Deer: Yes! Me: You scared me! (There’s a feeling of curiosity, as though the deer is wondering about who is talking to her.)

Me: I’ll speak with you later, if that’s okay. (I need to focus on driving, at this point, in case anything else jumps out of the bush.)

(There’s an image of the deer jumping away.)

Later:

Me: Hi, is it okay if we communicate?

Deer: I don’t see why not.

Me: I’m a human.

Deer: I can see as much.

Me: My name’s Avril. I live in the big house (I show her an image of our house, which is just up the road from where I encountered her).

Deer: I’ve seen you and your family sometimes.

Me: I was the one who almost hit you the other day.

Deer: That was you?!

Me: Yeah, I’m really sorry…

(There’s a feeling of fear and panic and anger.)

Me: Did I frighten you?

Deer: You sure did! You should be more careful!

Me: You need to be really careful – it’s difficult for our vehicles to stop quickly in the winter time.

Deer: Oh, I see.

Me: How are you doing?

Deer: How do you think I’m doing? I almost got run over!

Me: I know, sorry… That must have been really scary for you. Do you want me to send you some healing energy?

Deer: What’s that? (Shows an image of herself approaching me with curiosity and a sense of wariness.)

(I show her a handful of Reiki energy and let it touch her nose.)

Deer: How do you do that?

Me: I summon it from the sky.

(Gives the feeling of permission to send her some.)

Me: Do you have any babies?

Deer: May be coming…

Me: Do you want children?

(She sends a feeling of being content right now with things the way they are.)

Me: How do you feel about the winter and the snow?

(A feeling of anxiety.)

Me: Why?

Deer: Looking for food. The cold.

Me: Doesn’t your coat keep you warm, though?

Deer: Only sometimes – not when it’s really cold.

Me: What do you do when it’s really cold, then?

Deer: Whatever we can. Stay with friends and family. Stay in a group. Buck around. Play games. Keep moving.

Me: How do you feel about your particular group?

Deer: They’re alright. Couldn’t be much better. Could be worse.

Me: Do you and your group reside in the forest by my house?

(There’s a feeling of uncertainty, like she doesn’t want to tell me where they live.)

Me: It’s okay. My parents don’t allow hunting on our land because we love wildlife and we want you to feel safe here. If you and your group ever need a safe place to stay, you can come and stay in our forest.

Deer: Alright, thank you. That’s very kind of you.

Me: Well, I’m very glad that I met you – and, again, sorry for the other day.

Deer: Thank you for your kind words. We can leave the mistakes in the past; we’ve all made them.

Me: Have a good night.

(The deer shows an image of her jumping away.)

Just a Typical Conversation with My Dog

Hey, Monkeys!

I have a special treat for you this week 😉 I thought it would be sort of cool to give you a taste of what it’s like to speak with an animal. This weekend I had some one-on-one time with my dog and got his permission to share his a’s to my q’s with the human world. (“Really!?!? You would tell them you can talk to me?!!”)

*Before we get into it, I just want to clarify that I’m not an Animal Communicator/ Animal Psychic. I do use animal communication in my sessions, but I don’t do full sessions where I’m just communicating with an animal. My sessions are what some of us in the holistic community like to refer to as ‘blended sessions’ – they include a variety of holistic energy therapy modalities (Reiki, Body Scans, Crystal Therapy, Animal Communication, etc.). The reason I decided to go this route is that it offers the best possible chance of helping a human get to the core of their animal companion’s issues. You can’t always determine why a cat is spraying all over the house, or why a horse is behaving aggressively, or why a dog tears up the floors and walls simply by talking to them. Sometimes you can… but sometimes you need to have other tools in your kit.*

The following is my conversation with my dog, Dolce.

I'll have to ask him next time if he likes having his picture taken...

I’ll have to ask him next time if he likes having his picture taken…

Me: What do you think of all the decorations Mom and Taryn put up?

Dolce: They’re nice – they make the place sparkly.

Me: Why do you try to take the icicles? (Dolce likes to steal the sparkly plastic icicle decorations off the Christmas tree when we’re not looking.)

Dolce: I don’t know… I like them.

Me: What about eating them satisfies you?

Dolce: The way they snap like twigs. I like the crunch.

Me: Was it you who twisted the table cloth on the small table in the living room the other day? Did you try pulling it down?

Dolce: It wasn’t me.

Me: No…?

Dolce: No, I didn’t do it. (I can tell that he’s telling the truth.)

Me: Do you get really bored around here?

Dolce: Not usually – just when you guys are away.

Me: How are your hind legs feeling? (He’s been getting sudden, sharp pains shooting through his legs every so often for the past couple of months.)

Dolce: They’re pretty good.

Me: Are they still hurting you?

Dolce: Seems to have gone away, now.

Me: Why do you lick your paws so much, lately?

Dolce: Because they’re so itchy! I can’t stand it!

Me: Do you like the special water I give you? (Every once in a while, I give him some crystal elixir water along with his regular water dish.)

Dolce: Sometimes I do; sometimes I don’t. (This makes senses – he doesn’t always drink it, but other times he licks the bowl dry.)

Me: Do you prefer the company of big dogs or little dogs? (Dolce shows me an image of a big dog – a Golden Retriever. To him, this would be a big dog, because Dolce is a 15 lbs Shi-Poo.)

Me: Why?

Dolce: Because they’re stronger than me.

Me: Why is that good? (Dolce shows an image of the big dog standing in front of him, protecting him.)

Me: Do you ever wish you had a girlfriend?

Dolce: Maaaayyybbeeeee…..

Me: What would she be like?

Dolce: Small and curious and fun to be around…

Me: What else?

Dolce: I don’t know – that’s a trouble question.

Me: Why?

Dolce: Because I don’t know what I want. I haven’t met enough dogs my own age to know what I like.

Me: What have you liked about the dogs you have met?

Dolce: Shy, curious, playful/ play back (he means that when he is feeling playful, they play with him – there’s one dog in the neighbourhood who doesn’t “play back”), let me follow them around/ let me onto their territory…

Me: What have you liked about the cats you’ve met?

Dolce: The cats? Cats are a whole different breed!

Me: I know, but still… what have you liked about them?

Dolce: Cats let me onto their territory in a way that dogs never will.

Me: What else?

Dolce: They can climb trees all the way to the top! They’re really mischievous and agile.

Me: Is there anything you want humans to know?

Dolce: Show me some respect. Dogs can handle anything. We’re good people. If you’re good to us, we’ll be good to you.

Me: Is there anything you want me to know?

Dolce: (He puts his face really close to mine and whispers) Feed me more often. The good stuff. (We feed him the amount of raw food recommended by our veterinarian. I think he’s asking for more treats here because we’ve been cutting back on those lately, in an effort to get him to lose weight.)

Me: Anything else?

Dolce: I love you, Sister.

Me: Awww! I love you, too!

Dolce: Awww! (He giggles.)
