Read the wonderful original blog post here. (Tony is actually very beautiful black cat.) I made the picture above just to emphasize the good news. :o)
“Mom, if I stay here with you and my family on my beautiful farm with peace and good health that will be great. But if I go to heaven — that’s great too. So basically Mom, I’m in a win-win situation here, either way is going to be wonderful.” He said: “Mom, HEAVEN DOESN’T SUCK!”
— Tony the cat via animal communicator Shirley Merrill (his human) just before his last visit to the vet
Another important blog post from Shirley’s blog is the post about the energies we lash our pets with. It is a good reminder that pets are stuck with us – for better or for worse. Sometimes we forget that pets/animals really see, hear, feel, sense and understand everything we do – at home or at the office.
Our stress is their stress.
Walk it off. Play it off. Laugh it off. Or cry it off.
When it is time to go — it is time to go.
Not one soul leaves this planet and pops through the veil to the other side, if it is not their time.
It is exactly the same with animals. They always leave this earthly place at the right moment. Often it might seem chaotic or even horrible or painful for us humans, but they usually leave in peace. Death is always natural. It is like its opposite: birth — nothing is going to stop it when the time comes.. Things are going to… and will… pop.
This is what happened to my cat as well. One minute all was well and the next he took his last breath. In my grief and sorrow it would have been easy to blame the vet for the sudden death. Boy, how much I wanted to blame someone: her or me or God or anybody. Soon I found out that it was his time to go and the damn cat was actually in a hurry! They were already calling for him to come back Home. I did intuitively understand all this in my heart and wanted to respect his soul’s plan. But it did not help with the pain. It hurts like hell when they leave this plane, often so very quickly.
Penelope Smith has written a blog post about pet loss — the emotional humans who are left behind and the peaceful animals who return back Home.
She shares cat’s and dog’s perspective on their death (in the fire).
If you have ever suffered from horrible guilt for your pet’s death, this blog post is for you.
There are many things in life that we are not able to control: death is only one of them. We just need to go with the flow: which is exactly what animals do. They are masters in living in this moment and they do not look back or forward. They are here and now and handle things as they come.
Penelope has been communicating with animals for decades. She is one of the very first animal communicators out there. She has shown the way to hundreds of others. She has written many, stunning books about animals and their inner life.
There are not too many animal communication related books available as audio books, but there are two books worth mentioning over Audible. The first one is The Amazing Afterlife of Animals by Karen Anderson. She is a very well known animal communicator / pet psychic and the reviews of this books are very good indeed. If you need comfort after you have lost your pet, this book is great for you. Karen surely knows what she is talking about.
So does Danielle MacKinnon. Her book Animal Lessons is also available as an audio book at the moment. This book is an eye opener for all the animal lovers out there. They are great teachers and guides — helping you to grow and evolve while you stay on earth as a spiritual being “trapped” in a physical body. Pets are not just pets. They are furry magic and they are here for you. There are many lessons in life that other people are not able to teach you — but pets can.
More AC reading material in Animal Communication Books blog! Do yourself a favor and get to know more animal wisdom. It will transform your life. I’d bet my hat on it — if I had any.
Lovely article by a woman who was not a believer of animal communication. That did not matter in the end: her dogs stopped fighting. Sometimes things click when you step away from your comfort zone and just go with the flow.
It is quite common that when you do not believe too much in intuitive interspecies communication you end up consulting two or more pet psychics/animal communicators. (I have actually heard stories that people consult 10 pet psychics until they are willing to admit that it works.) Human head is one hard nut to crack.
Sometimes we look for the answers in our head, when we actually could do better if we consulted our heart. It might save us time, energy and money. Llama says the very same thing in animal communicator Sandra Mendelson’s blog post on May 10th. We tend to look for answers from the wrong place: brain.
Listen to your heart. Using your inner guidance makes life a lot more easier. Always.
I just added several animal communicators to Tailbook’s animal intuitives of the world list. (I just love the way they take over the world!) One of them was Latifa Meena (Kentucky).
While at it I noticed an interesting blog post in her blog about a horse that had crossed several months ago. He was in good company indeed in his afterlife. (Well, my late cat is hanging out with mermaids…!!)
Read the post here. It is not long, it takes just a minute or two… But it might take the rest of your life to ponder what the heck is going on in Heaven?! :o]
Richard D. Rowland is a cancer survivor like no other. He believes in magic: “Magic exists, coincidences don’t. Hope is always there.” — Richard D. Rowland. He also believes that animals are much more evolved beings than humans and that we can learn a lot from them. — That is pretty much what I have been trying to tell you for a decade… ;o} Anyway, this book (paperback on Barnes & Noble) has pretty good reviews on Amazon (Kindle Edition) and it is obviously well written. If you are struggling with cancer or similar life threatening disease and you are an animal lover, this might be your perfect summer (winter) reading this year. (Richard is a horse lover, as you can see from the cover of the book.) There are no coincidences, so if you feel drawn to this book, there is a reason for it.
I have no idea who Joey Graceffa is but Melissa Bacelar is a pet psychic!
Animal intuitive and medium Darcy Pariso wrote an interesting article for New Spirit Journal online. She has seen many cases when pets visit us as walk-ins, to show their love and support for us — and to heal us from our sorrow and ‘separation anxiety’. I am sure many people have actually experienced visits like these but then they explain it to themselves as “imagination”. Humanity is one hard headed race and it takes time for animals to show us the truth… Fortunately they will never give up on us.
I believe it is just like Darcy says in the end of her article:
Animals are very comfortable in the high vibration of love. They are experts in finding ways to show us their love for us never dies.

There is also an article about her, maybe one on the skeptic side but article it is! Read and weep! :o}
In the beginning of Easter week I came across a message from Magical Matilda. She lived with a witch in another life and she is still practicing magic in the moonlight.
At times I need to feel the moonbeams on my coat to energise me and the ground beneath my feet to ground me. I take my guidance from moon energy and garden sprites…
Matilda the cat via animal communicator Clare Metcalf
Read the whole message here. Matilda shares some secrets about nature spirits you may not know yet. And there are other messages as well (from another cat and a dog).
May you have some magic in your heart as well. (I know you have.)
This Kindle book gives you something to ponder. It is obvious to me that pets have angels and spirit guides with them, just like we humans do. But have I ever wondered what is the spirit animal of my pet? Nope. Not that I can think of. I hardly know my own spirit animal(s)! Duh!
I take the easy way out: I often ask help and protection from the pets that have already passed.
The author of this interesting book communicates with animals, so she might actually know what she is talking about. This little book is a quick read but might give you ideas that last for a lifetime.
I decided against posting this book to ACB blog but there is new animal communication book out there. (Check it out; it is Tails from the Afterlife by Kristy Robinett.) As I was tagging ACB today I noticed that pets & afterlife is one of the most popular theme among all the animal communication books out there (250+ and counting!).
No wonder — we miss our beloved babies when they are gone.
I know it is rude to call them “babies” because they are actually masters but hey, we all do it every once and a while!
Needless to say, Kindle preview is not enough with this beautiful book. It is such a gift to be able to read and witness animal messages — from dead or alive. Belle is a dog from Heaven and she has a message for her Mom every dog lover should read. This is the gift of pets in our lives. And it is a gift that keeps on giving. Every day of your life, even if you do not know it. ;o}
Mom, as I look at you, from where I stand in the universe, I want you to know that I’m not any different really from what my personality was like in the physical with you.
There are many things to share with you, but first I want to let you know I’m okay and I’m present in your every single day.
I watch and see you clearly from where I am now. I oftentimes crawl into your heart and into your soul to comfort you. I’m close wherever you need me. My big soul is part of you. Please remember that we are forever soul-buddies.
My intelligence is respected here in the afterlife, as is my fairness. Do you remember how fair I was in the physical realm? I would like you to remember once again how I presented myself to you and others. When you remember this, your groundedness will be stronger.
As you know I was also honest and strong. This along with my groundedness and fairness, is my truth. I want to thank you because you gave me this gift. Did you know that? I didn’t have this before you. But it was my life destiny to be with you. I needed you – I needed you to help me feel secure and confident.
I hope you realize you’re helping me be that great dog with all these wonderful attributes. My gift to you is the same.
Since our souls are combined, I give to you the same confidence, groundedness, and strong sense of self that is respected by all. Intergrity, instrospection, fairness, and confidence – these are your words to live by.
You told Wendy you miss me, and that’s understandable. I miss you too. But I’m not far away. I’m still in your heart, and remember, I’m your soul, so we share the same thoughts.
I want you to know that you can talk to me. You can ask me questions. You can write me letters of love and appreciation.
It is important for me to share with you because I think you forget sometimes. You are perfect just the way you are and I loved sharing my life with you. I still do – even though it’s different.
In the stillness of our love and the stillness of our hearts please remember the stillness of your mind. Reach out to me whenever you need support, guidance, and love.
Together we were in the physical. Together we are in energy. Together we are in love. Together we are with grounded forces.
I want you to know here in the afterlife I am being celebrated because I was successful in my Soul Promise (see glossary for definition) to myself and to you. I accomplished what I needed to know. I accomplished what I needed to learn to help you learn the same. I am rewarded greatly for the job that I did.
Thank you, Mom, and I am forever grateful that we got to share life with each other in the physical. I look forward to our relationship as it continues. Let’s always communicate with our hearts and souls.
In fairness and confidence,
