what-is-animal-commWhat is animal communication? Elaine Garley of Animal Bridges explained animal communication to the National Association of Professional Women’s Minneapolis Chapter on August 10, 2016.

Twenty NAPW members listened as Elaine explained what is animal communication.  She also explained how people “hear” the animals. Many animal communicators receive telepathic messages in the form of pictures. Most pet parents just “know” when their best friend is hungry, needs to go outside, or is sick. As children, many of us spoke with animals and “imaginary friends.”

Tommie

Tommie

What does a pet parent do when her 7-year old cat has major cat issues? A few years ago, Claudia Green of Mesa, AZ contacted Animal Bridges about Tommie because he wasn’t using the litter box, and the issue was resolved.

Now Tommie, a tabby, had symptoms of a urinary tract infection. Since there were no stones or crystals in his bladder the vet diagnosed it as feline idiopathic cystitis (FIC). The vet said the issue is caused by stress, anxiety, or fear. No one could figure out the cause. What was causing the cat issues for Tommie?

TTouch® is the language of trust and love for animals and people.

Some animals need to learn to trust first before they are comfortable giving love. Others just enjoy the undivided attention. An easy way to give undivided attention to your pet is doing Tellington TTouch®.

TTouch® can change animals’ lives for the better and definitely affect people too. My life was profoundly changed with TTouch® as I saw the affect on Boomer, our dog who was afraid of vets.

Holidays and Quality Time for Your Pet

holidays-and-your-pet

holidays-and-your-petThe 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!
