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.
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.
Why was Gerty, a recently adopted dog always hungry? She was never satisfied. Cat Bear of Richfield, MN, contacted Animal Bridges for an animal communication with Gerty. Elaine and Gerty had an animal communcation.
One question was “Are you hungry most of the time. You seem to be when we feed you plus you eat poop (PLEASE stop eating poop!) and you counter surf. We can feed you more but we also want to make sure you stay healthy and fit.”
The following is part of the conversation between Elaine and Gerty.
Elaine Garley of Animal Bridges received this email testimonial from Cat Bear of Richfield, MN on August 12, 2015. Monty, the dog stops limping after an animal communication.
“I met Elaine at an event several months ago. We engaged her to speak to our dog Bo (who had just passed away) and our 3 other pets Monty (dog), Earl (cat), and Leo (cat). The [animal] communication she had with all 4 of them was very valuable, but the most remarkable information we received was about Monty.
Neeko, a 13-year old Husky, lives in Florida with his people, Peggy and Steve Hawks. They want to keep Neeko comfortable and happy. He was having typical aging dog issues.
Peggy wrote to Animal Bridges, “I have seen his rear legs shake when he’s laying down, not sure why. And he sometimes has trouble swallowing his food, he chokes and will cough after he barks. “
Livie, the flat coated retriever, was diagnosed in December of 2014 and almost died because of Congestive Heart Failure. Her pet parents, Mary Ann Rafferty and Kate Stankis of Minneapolis, Minnesota emailed Elaine. “At the time, she was diagnosed with Dilated Cardimyopathy, an irreversible heart condition whose prognosis is poor. At this time (March 2015), Livie is on medication and doing well.”
Mary Ann asked Animal Bridges to communicate with Livie about their concerns. Livie prognosis was not great and they wanted to ask her about her pain, what she wanted to do (a bucket list), how to help her relax, and to let them know when she is ready to transition.
