Animal communicator Karen Hall‘s Facebook post shows how words and names affect the animals. (Good to remember that they have a huge effect also on us!) The same thing came up when Anna Breytenbach talked with the leopard called ‘Diabolo‘. He did not enjoy his name at all. When we name animals, especially black ones, (people hate or are afraid of black rescue cats!) with that sort of names, we feed fear into people and then the fear is felt by the animals themselves. It is a vicious circle. We have the power to stop it. By naming these beautiful souls with beautiful, empowering names. Changing the name to a more positive one can change the whole personality of an animal. This is something animal communicators have mentioned several times.
