It sure seems that way, doesn’t it? I was just thinking about going away on vacation and getting excited about it and my nine-year old kitty BB started being a lot more cuddly. He knew. But he wasn’t reading my mind, he was reading my energy, emotions and the mental images I was creating. Animals can read us so well because they tune into the emotion behind our thoughts. They read our intentions and the meaning behind our words.
Reading the intentions of other creatures is necessary for animals, whether the animal is a predator or prey. It’s a very important, highly developed survival skill.
One time when Robbie, my young, high-energy kitty was pushing the envelope with BB, I told Robbie, ”BB has had enough and he doesn’t feel like playing anymore right now, so please leave him alone.” Robbie settled down and stopped bugging BB. Robbie understood the meaning behind the words.
It will help foster a better relationship with your pets if you communicate with them on other issues too, like what time you’ll be home after work and why they are going to the vet’s office. In her wonderful book titled, Conversations with Cat, animal communicator Kate Solisti connects to the Council of Felines, the higher group consciousness of cats. She posed questions to them and here’s how they answered:
“It helps us a great deal when you explain why we are going to the vet’s. If you do this, we will have time to shore up our energy field to better cope with the other animals at the clinic. Knowing when we’re going, why we’re going, and when we’re scheduled to return home will positively affect our recovery from surgery and help us focus on our healing. Tell us when you’ll be traveling. We hate it when the suitcases appear and there’s no explanation. “
So there you are, straight from the cat’s mouth!
