Signs your deceased pet is visiting you.
A pet is a beloved family member. Losing them is heartbreaking. How do you know when your deceased pet is nearby and visiting you? What are the signs from your deceased dog, cat and so on?
There are various ways a pet gives signs. You can smell them, for instance. When you want to follow the scent, it’s gone. Usually, the scent lasts a couple of seconds. It can be the smell of their food or how their fur used to smell.
You can hear them. For instance, the sound of their nails on the floor as if they are walking around. You can hear the sound of their leash or the cat’s bell they had around their neck. You may think you made that up, but it’s your pet’s way of letting you know they are still around you.
Whenever my dog ate, he moved his food bowl over the kitchen floor. That made a distinct and recognizable sound. The day after his passing, I removed the bowl. The empty bowl was way too confrontational and sad. Yet often, when I sat in the living room, I heard the unmistakable sound of his food bowl sliding across the kitchen floor for a few seconds. I thought I imagined the sound until others heard it too. I had never told them I had heard that sound many times before. I was happy others heard it, too.
My son often heard the noise his hamster made every day on his treadmill long after the hamster passed away and after the cage was removed from his room. This sound often woke him up in the middle of the night.
Sometimes you can also feel them. You can experience a warm sensation at your feet or beside you. The same place where your pet used to cuddle up against you. They still love to do that because they are still attracted to the love you feel for them. They know you miss them and how much they mean to you.
I want to share two stories about the information deceased pets gave to their owners. It’s from my book: My Most Memorable Psychic Readings and Personal Stories.
For me, there is no difference between communicating with deceased people or deceased animals. They have similar emotions and awareness to humans. They experience joy and grief like humans but look differently at the dying experience. Animals know it is part of the cycle of life, and they do not fear death. They know it is the next step in their process, while humans often think death is the definite end.
A friend told me about a cat he had when he was younger. He was very fond of him and called the cat ‘his shadow’ because he followed him everywhere. Whenever he returned from vacation, and the cat had stayed with his parents, he always wholly ignored my friend, acted insulted and did not look at him for days. As if he wanted to say, how dare you leave me behind?
“Shall I see if I can make contact with your cat?” I asked him. My friend liked that idea. He did not have a photo of him, so I tried to establish communication with his cat using the cat’s name. In my mind, I said his name and asked if he would communicate with me. After a minute or so, the cat showed himself to me. He told me he did not like that his fur got bald spots toward the end of his life. He had trouble walking and loved lying upstairs, where it was quieter.
He said, “Lately, I have made myself known by creating the sound of a bell ringing because I am still around now and then.” I told my friend what his cat had told me, and he confirmed and recognized his cat in what I said, except for the bell sound. He did not understand what he meant by that. His cat did not wear a little bell around his neck when he was alive.
We heard a repetitive loud beep from the upstairs dryer, signaling dry laundry. Suddenly, my friend stared at me wide-eyed, put his hand over his mouth, and got tears in his eyes. “What is the matter?” I asked him. He could not answer right away; tears ran down his cheeks.
He said that lately, whenever he walked upstairs to do his laundry, he heard the sound of a bell. He had been looking everywhere to find out where this sound was coming from but could not locate it. Whenever he thought he could pinpoint the source and walked toward it, the bell would suddenly ring from the opposite direction.
It felt like someone was trying to fool him, he said. This had happened several times in the past few weeks. The dryer’s beeper reminded him of the strange recurring incidents of the sound of an invisible bell in the attic. He was so happy to hear that it was his cat who had tried to let him know that he was still with him now and then.
My client Rosie gave me pictures of two horses; one died two years ago. As always, I did not want any upfront information, and I first had to focus on the horse still alive. She is sensitive, intelligent, sometimes insecure, sweet, and loyal. The mare told me that her owner, Rosie, meant everything to her. She found it difficult to connect with the other horses in the stables. She showed me a dominant white horse and preferred staying far away from him.
In the recent past, Rosie could not visit for a long time, and the horse missed her enormously. Rosie’s presence gave her more confidence. The people who cared for her when Rosie was not around were good to her but not comparable to Rosie’s care. She shared that she feels how Rosie feels, even when they are not together.
She showed me a piece of land and a house where they would live in the future, and she was looking forward to it very much. She revealed that in the future, another horse would be staying on this land too, and she would get along well with the stallion.
I focused on the photo of the deceased horse. She was very strong-willed and confident and never cared what others thought of her. She was a natural leader, and she told me that she still visited Rosie often and that Rosie was a terrific mother. She thanked Rosie for all the effort and love she had given to her and the horse still alive.
Rosie said she had no children and that the deceased horse was the mother of the living mare. The mare and her mother were very close. She had passed away a year after the mare was born, and Rosie had told the mare that she would never be able to take over the mother role but that she would do the best she could.
Rosie became ill and could not visit her horse during her treatments. Whenever she had the tiniest bit of energy, she went to the mare. She was always cautious with Rosie as if she sensed how fragile Rosie was. Rosie said her mother had died a short while ago and left her some money. This way, she could make her dream come true: buying a house with a large piece of land for her mare.
Rosie was thrilled to hear the mare knew about the move and that she was looking forward to it as much as Rosie. She said she was thinking about buying a companion for the mare, and while she said this, the mare responded that the stallion would come into their lives within eight months of moving house. The mare gave Rosie an unexpected but very welcome bonus and showed her a future love partner. She had let go of her wish to be with someone again. She thought that leaving the city and moving to the countryside would decrease the probability of ever meeting someone. Little did she know it would lead her to her future partner.
About two years after the reading, Rosie sent me several photos of her new, fantastic house and land. They all found their piece of heaven: Rosie, the mare, the stallion, and Rosie’s partner. I love happy endings!
