Animals do not really lie. Those cases are very rare.
They mostly lie to protect their humans from pain – or to avoid the visit to the vet, which is not among their top 10 favorite things to do in life… And yes, sometimes they trick you, as Nedda Wittels shared on Animal Communicator Forum recently. She has been working as an animal communicator for 20 years.
I remember one case, when a cat had told to another cat in the family that the new scratching post is meant only for her to use. When an animal communicator told that this is not true, the cat who had been lied to said “Oh…”. He actually asked later, if all the toys where meant also for him… (Yes, they were.) When all this was revealed, in the end of the animal communication session the cat who had been lying to her friend asked: “Can we get another scratching post?”.
Sometimes animals act like children. Can we blame them for it?
We have all been children once and sometimes we act like children, even as adults.
And what it comes to those boring questions in animal communication workshops, I understand them perfectly. I would be very bored too, if somebody asked me dozens of times “What is the color of your food bowl?”.
It is white, by the way.
