Elna van Coller of South Africa was very concerned about her excessive grooming cat. Elna contacted Animal Bridges and our conversation started.
Elna wrote about how Chatul, a Burmese cat, “started excessive grooming her tail” after the other family cat had surgery. Chatul licked until she had no hair on her tail.
The holiday season is on us, and this year it is suddenly shorter! Or at least it seems that way. Talk about adding stress! So how do you manage the holidays and quality time for your pet?
Of course, we all have the same amount of errands, mailings, and cooking in less time. Hobbes pulled out his warm coat early.
Now exhale! Yes, we are stressed and we are sharing it with our pets.
So let’s all stop for a minute or five minutes. Exhale. Clear your mind by listening to your breathing. Turn off the mind chatter of “I need to…”
Now for some quality time for your pet.
Go over to your pet, and slowly exhale again. You may try yawning while you sit with your dog. Very slowly blink your eyes as you sit with your cat.
Exhale quietly again. Be with your pet. No phone or gadget. Slowly stroke your best friend. If you know TTouch®, do a few TTouches® on your pet and yourself. Try ear slides. Exhale.
As a way of giving thanks to your pet and yourself, try to spend five minutes a day enjoying this special time with your pet. You will feel better and so will they!
Isabella Allard from Cascais, Portugal wrote the following testimonial about her experience with Elaine the animal communicator from Animal Bridges:
“I was looking for an animal communicator to speak to my horse [Samba] as I wanted to know why he had gone lame and what he needed to get better.
I found Elaine while searching on-line and am so happy I did.
I booked her FREE 15 minute consultation [by Skype] and explained my situation.
She has a lovely energy and I felt assured she could help. We arranged a session.
Shortly after our call, she spoke with my horse and sent me a transcript via email of their conversation; which truly warmed my heart to read.
Cat issues with litter box? Is your cat being creative where she is going? Is he spraying on furniture and the walls? You are not alone!
The biggest issue for cat pet parents is litter boxes and a cat not using it. Suddenly your cat is spraying outside the box or not even getting close. What do you do?
One of Animal Bridges’clients had this issue. The cat was no longer using the litter box. She didn’t know what to do. When she called, we went through the “Cat Litter Box Check List.”
Jim O’Connell of Columbia Heights, Minnesota called Animal Bridges with concerns about his cat, Brookie. The black tabby was drinking a lot of water, not sleeping with him, and also talking as if she was stressed. Jim asked me to please have an animal communication with Brookie. His main concern was if she needed to go to the veterinarian.
Brookie knew exactly what she wanted as she spoke to Elaine.
E: Hi Brookie. I am Elaine and Jim asked me to talk with you.
B: Hi Elaine. Thanks for talking to me.
On September 24, 2015 Elaine Garley of Animal Bridges spoke at North Star Therapy Animals. NSTA consists of individuals from the Twin Cities area who volunteer as part of therapy animals teams. The teams are passionate about therapy animal interactions and the benefits it brings to the Twin Cities.
Hobbes stopped looking out the window and sat with me. Then he slept with me until 6 AM. This was a big shift in his behavior. He usually pouts.
Today a friend said her only child left for college last week. Now her daughter’s cat is very clingy.
Yes, our best friends – cats, dog, rabbits, horses, and any pets are affected by changes.
