Animal CommunicatorsPublished July 14, 2008
We were at our wit's end with Trouble, our white Oriental Shorthair neuter. With a solid diagnosis eluding my veterinarian about his continuing inappropriate elimination, we both were left completely puzzled. This once fastidious feline persisted in anointing our bedroom carpet and box spring. My vet reported excellent results using Prozac, so off we went to the pharmacy, prescription in hand, with high expectations. Unfortunately, Trouble had a paradoxical reaction to the drug and became even more anxious, pacing and yowling continually. It was just another disappointing treatment plan! We were completely frustrated. Complicating the picture, Trouble was previously diagnosed with Diabetes Insipidus, a condition which adversely affects the kidney's ability to concentrate urine. This is highly dangerous for felines. We hoped that by giving him the hormone he was lacking that his spraying behavior might cease. We wondered if there were any new conflicts between Trouble and his brother, Hush Puppy, which was adding to Trouble's stress. Trouble A friend suggested that I consider consulting with an Animal Communicator, named Lisa. At first, I was highly skeptical about taking this step, but with all the energy that I expended, I figured I had nothing to lose. We could survive on hot dogs and hamburgers for a while! The Internet is a fantastic source for creative suggestions. Through a feline newsgroup, I read about an animal communicator who remotely located a missing cat that escaped from her carrier during a security check at a large airport. Apparently, she honed in on the cat's frightened vibrations. Sending an exploratory email to Lisa, I cautiously put a toe into the water, sending her photographs of our cats and a short history and my reason for contacting her. To assure an untainted reading, I deliberately did not give her too many details. She called me within hours and a session scheduled quickly. Hearing her voice gave me hope and I eagerly awaited our appointment time. My skeptical side was immediately quieted. Our phone session totally blew me away. She started her reading by describing Trouble as a "flamboyant" kitty. She hit the nail on the head! She told me about Trouble's special name for me, "MoMa” that he adored me and was thrilled for the opportunity to communicate with me more directly as he needed to get some things off his chest. He was feeling frustrated that I was not understanding him. Lisa continued our session, informing me that Trouble was in the beginning stages of kidney failure, and suggested that I change his diet to prevent further damage, which included serving him a high quality grain-free cat food. Lisa continued communicating with Trouble. She learned that one of my other cats, Lucyfur, adopted a couple of years ago, and was very unhappy in our home. She desperately wanted to live in an "only cat" household. Lisa suggested that we consider rehoming her, as Lucyfur considered us”foster parents" and ours was not her forever home. My heart sank. What fascinated me the most about the session however came toward the end and what almost had me fall off my chair. Trouble started sharing some of his concerns about aspects of my personal life not related to my feline concerns, and highly unexpected. They are not necessary to go into in detail, but she was totally "on the money" about the things that she had no way of knowing. It was then that my skepticism faded into a distant memory. I talked with my vet almost immediately after the reading. She validated that Trouble might be in the initial stages of kidney failure and prescribed supplements and a Chinese herbal product to maintain his kidney health. She will be following his progress closely. Lucyfur was successfully rehomed a couple of months after the reading. Was it coincidental that Lucyfur found that purrfect home for which she longed? A couple who recently moved to our area of the Country, arriving from New York where I too am a former resident, "accidentally" discovered her picture on the Internet where she was listed for adoption by my vet's clinic. The strangest part of it all is that it turns out that they live in my hometown. I suggest if you have pets that puzzle you with their unexplainable quirky behavior; a consultation with an animal communicator may just be the ticket to help. While it is a relatively new means of intervention, combined with traditional and alternative veterinary care, it can be an effective tool.
