Many years ago I had a kitty named Morris who liked to roam around out in the woods around our house. I got worried about him one day because he’d been gone a long time. I was thinking about how I wished he’d come back.
Within ten minutes, he showed up on the back porch, meowing at the door for me to let him in! I was pretty surprised, but I thought it was a coincidence until I tried it again the next day…There he was again, within ten minutes. I called him home by thinking about him nearly every day after that.
It’s funny, but this never worked with any of the other cats who have lived with me over the years. For some reason, Morris and I had this special way of communicating with each other.
Today’s post is from Janet Roper, a professional animal communicator. You may remember that her cat Billy was featured on Cool Cat Care Stuff last week. Here’s what Janet has to say:
“Recently I was having lunch with a friend and we were talking about a favorite subject: cats. My friend mentioned a cat she once had who would sit on the floor staring intently and directly at her. She always felt the cat could understand what she was saying, and that the cat had words of wisdom to tell her. “If only she could talk,” my friend lamented.
Animals do talk, and they are very happy that we are beginning to not only listen, but to talk to them!
How many times have you thought that your cat was trying to telling you something, and then dismissed that thought because of the preconceived notion that cats (animals) can’t/don’t talk?
For those of you who are interested in communicating with your cat, here are some basic steps you can take to participate in the already open lines of communication. At the beginning, you may find it easier to have your cat with you.
- Go to a place where you will be undisturbed and where you feel safe to release anything that will stand between you and communicating with your animal. I find an easy way to release any ‘baggage’ is to imagine a box where I dump any distractions, worries, etc. Once I’ve finished, I am free to pick up those worries again – should I want!
- Ask permission to speak with your cat. If you receive a hunch this is not a good time to talk, honor that and try again later.
- When you get the ‘go ahead’, begin conversing. Treat kitty with respect and honor during the conversation, just as you like to be treated when you’re conversing with a friend.
- TRUST, TRUST, TRUST what you receive! Trust that what you receive is correct, and the information is what the cat needs to say and what needs to be heard at this time. If you find yourself doubting what you receive, ask this: Out of all the millions and billions of thoughts, why did that particular thought come to me at this particular time?
- At the end of the conversation, thank your kitty companion for conversing with you.
Information can come through in various ways: thoughts, pictures, sounds, feelings, emotions, etc. You may receive information in more than one way. As you become more experienced, you may find you have a primary way to receive information.
Next time you have the feeling your cat is talking to you, I invite you to accept that feeling as actuality and respond to your cat’s conversation. You’ll be surprised at how this can deepen and strengthen your relationship with your cat!”
