Want a Dog and Cat to Share a Home? Try Animal Communication

Cat and dog share a home

dog-and-catHow to you introduce a cat who lived mostly outside in a wooded area for over four years to a dog? The dog lived with an older cat for over eight years who crossed Rainbow Bridge.

Now the dog, Jyota, was interested in the new cat, Joey. The feelings weren’t mutual.

Being a dog, Jyota sniffed at the door separating them, barked from her crate at Joey, and would sometimes lunge at Joey.

Joey, the cat, lived mostly outside at a retreat facility and was used to people.

Halloween Can Cause Scared Cats and Dogs!

scared cats and dogs

Halloween Can Cause Scared Cats and DogsOctober is the month of changes and Halloween. Some people like getting “scared” with the goblins, ghosts, and horrible monsters. Scared cats and dogs are just that — scared!

Our pets don’t understand why people are dressed funny, wear masks, and try to scare them. For many pets it is a time of uncertainty, anxiety, and fear. Pets don’t understand Halloween and can be afraid.

What does fear feel like? Imagine getting a dreaded phone call or dropping your dog’s leash and losing him.

Animal Bridges Discusses Animal Communication on MPC Radio

Supernatural Investigators of MNMae Kelley of Supernatural Investigators of Minnesota (SIM) invited Elaine Garley of Animal Bridges to discuss animal communication on Minnesota Paranormal Coalition’s (MPC) radio show.

MPC is a coalition of over 10 paranormal organizations in Minnesota. Many of the teams investigate paranormal activity. The teams include investigators, psychics, and an exorcist. They want to provide the best services to their customers and are a very reputable organization.

On April 15, 2014, Elaine and Mae discussed animal communication for nearly an hour. Get comfortable and click below to hear the radio show. Be patient the first few minutes until the volume is corrected.

More About Animal Communication:

  • When you ask your pet, “want a treat?” or “want to go outside?,” do they seem to know what you’re asking and respond?
  • Do you somehow know when your pet is sick or hurt?
  • Can you feel your pet’s love for you?

Then you are communicating with your pet!

As a professional animal communicator, I’ve had special training that enhances the natural communication you may have experienced. Because of this training, I can help you learn more about your pet.

Working from my home, I hold a telepathic conversation with your pet, asking questions you provide, or giving them information for you. I can also work with animals who have already passed on. Often, deceased pets want to reassure their families that they are happy and healthy once again. I still cherish my handwritten notes of the conversation I had with my dog, Boomer, when he asked me to call the vet for the last time. He sent us such love and memories.

As I work with your pet, I hear the conversation in my head and feel both emotional and physical issues the animal is experiencing. After the session, I provide a transcript of the conversation, including insight into the animal’s feelings, thoughts, and concerns.

Read stories about some amazing communications.

Outdoor Cat Problems – Animal Communication Testimonial

Outdoor cat problems

Sweet Kitty

What do you tell a barn cat, who adopted you and your house roof, so she understands to behave? Jennifer Wells of Cumming, Georgia contacted me.

“We have an emergency.  I have a sweet kitty, Miss Two Can Sam, who mostly responds to “Kitty”… who keeps waking us up in the wee hours of the morning.  She’s an outdoor kitty (and probably won’t migrate in doors because she’s been a barn kitty for 7 years and has outdoor manners).

Could you, would you, have a conversation with her, please? I don’t know if she’s uncomfortable, or if she’s just hungry.  She’s always hungry.  She was starved when she came here.”

Faye decided she needed to hear Lulu’s thoughts. Lulu told me in our animal communication the following.

Lulu: Did you know I’m 14 years old? Recently life has been a little rough with me being sick. I am not ready to leave and cross Rainbow Bridge. I still have time left in my life. I’m not ready to leave my wonderful family. I love my life and I love Faye. I have the best life ever. I want to stay as long as I can.
