Dogs and cats are psychic – they communicate with us through a look or a sound. They’re amazing in that way. And it’s up to us to recognize their attempts at telling us what they need.
Often, cats will sit and stare at us… a soundless stare with no meows. You know he wants something – but what? They’re attempting to connect to our intuition. They have something to tell us, so they sit and stare… and stare… and stare. Pay attention! Humans have an incredible connection with their pets, a connection that we are often not aware of. We assume that our communication with our “babies” is only us talking to them. Not so! The little guys have their own way of communicating. My cat knows now that I respond to his stares, so whenever he needs something, whether it be for me to clean the box, to feed him or change his water or give him some lovin’, he stares. I attempt to figure out what he’s trying to tell me, and I usually get it.
Now dogs have a different way to communicate: Woof! Woof! Owoooh!!! That could be a cry to go bye-bye. Bye-bye and feed me are their biggest concerns, in addition to: “I need some lovies. Please scratch my belly.”
All of our pets need affection, cuddling and conversation. Dogs particularly love it when we talk to them in a sweet and loving voice, the way that we talk to babies. Dogs respond well to the human voice.
Dogs and cats also love music… soft, soothing music. Classical music, like Vivaldi, works whenever they’re out of sorts and agitated. They respond physiologically to music. Remember, they have very sensitive ears, so it’s best not to play loud music. The sounds reverberate throughout their bodies. When a pet is ill, it’s very effective to play love sounds that are smooth and soothing. Sounds help the body and psyche to heal.
Good luck with your pet communication skills!
