Faith is Believing the Impossible is Possible By Nancy Mello
Pet Psychic Guest Blog by Nancy Mello
When I was a little girl of about six, I decided that I needed a favorite pet. I asked God for help. I had run into the orchard of my family's farm in California when I heard my answer. It was the first time I can recall a message coming to me, and it certainly wouldn’t be the last. I heard the message loud and clear.
I ran back to my house and informed my mom that with utmost certainty, I had just heard my favorite animal was a cat, and it was so.
The next day a stray cat showed up on our farm and never left, and so started my love affair with cats.
There is something so intriguing about an animal that doesn’t need you. It seems to make you want to understand them even more. As an animal communicator and psychic medium, I have the advantage of being able to hear and understand animals. The knowledge flows through my stream of consciousness and could be mistaken for my own, but unless my subconscious wants a new scratching post or the windows open, it’s pretty easy to tell it apart.
Sometimes the knowledge I hear can save lives. I have helped find forty-six animals since March 2020, including one mini-mule and one donkey. These animals have been all over the world- from Greece, Ireland, Switzerland, Canada, England, and the United States. Not surprisingly, I find more cats than dogs. When I connect with lost cats, they tend to make demands. One cat wanted, “fresh greens” another cat requested “meat” (unbeknownst to me, the owner was a vegetarian!) Once I have assured the cat their demands will be met, they sometimes will rush home within minutes, others in days- all arriving with an expectant look of a prisoner that has accepted a plea deal with the judge. I sometimes video chat with that family afterward, the cat looking at me up and down. “Are you the one I was speaking to?” they ask. “Yes.” I will answer. They will give me a head nod in thanks, and go back to lazily walking around as if nothing had happened at all.
Cats seem to regard change with contempt unless they wanted it. Rarely do they want another feline sibling, no matter how lonely they appear. New cats are often looked at with disgust and frustration. “I don’t want them eating my food” and, “they took my spot by the window” are common complaints. Now they need to share their “human” and they will eye your lap even more greedily than before. Sometimes it just takes an animal communicator explaining to the cat that their new feline sibling needed a new home and no, their chair is not in danger of being taken over. The new cat and the old will come to an agreement of sorts, one becoming alpha and the other happily moving when they are chased off. Other times it becomes more therapy. Every few months we might check-in and reaffirm their positions in the house. The cats might unite against a common enemy (a new cat or dog) or getting the treats down off out of the cabinet.
There is no animal more specific in their requests than a cat. The question, “What can I do to make my kitty happier?” can unleash a thirty-minute deluge of requests ranging from, “don’t move me when I’m sleeping” to “I want a brown cat tree that reaches the ceiling and that I can sleep in.” Felines love their humans, and happiness can always be exemplified with better cat treats and fresher catnip. As I always remind my human clients, “You can always say no.” as I do in fact, say to my own most of the time. Not every request needs to be honored, and it is a rare look into a cat’s motivation and drive: Why do they want to perch up higher? Do they want softer treats because of a medical condition, or is it just taste? What happened before they made a home with you that makes them so territorial of your lap? It is these answers that can truly help your cat’s happiness. Sometimes it’s just assuring them that they have a home with you and they are loved, other times it is taking them to the veterinarian for a check-up.
