Well, I finally broke down and spoke to an animal communicator about Dash. I won a free session with animal communicator Sonia Fitzpatrick from a cat treat company called Temptations while I was at the BlogPaws expo. Sonya Fitzpatrick is a widely recognized and is, apparently, a widely respected animal communicator.

Well, I finally broke down and spoke to an animal communicator about Dash. I won a free session with animal communicator Sonia Fitzpatrick from a cat treat company called Temptations while I was at the BlogPaws expo. Sonya Fitzpatrick is a widely recognized and is, apparently, a widely respected animal communicator.

I was highly skeptical, but secretly looking forward to what she would have to say.

I don’t know if you’ve ever taken your pet to an animal communicator, but they also claim to be able to communicate with your pet simply by looking at their picture. That’s where it seems like a big scam to me.

I plopped myself down on the sofa across from Ms. Fitzpatrick and showed her a picture of Dash, and told her that it was my dog I wanted her to speak with. She said, “that’s fine but what I’m hearing is that you have a black cat.”

 Which stopped me in my tracks – I do have a black cat, named Mabel, who I rescued about 2 years ago. I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned her on the blog, and I rarely, if ever, talk about her. So I don’t know how she could have found that out. “lucky guess,” I thought to myself. Or was it?

She then began to explain to me that Dash doesn’t like the black cat because she is “bossy” towards him. Ironically this is the only cat that Dash has ever not gotten along with. Ms. Patrick continued on to say two more things, that Dash loved my father especially because he gives him tidbits of food, and that he had anxiety and that he didn’t like to be left alone.

I don’t know how she could have known either of those things. Maybe she went digging through my website. I asked what I could do to soothe him. Her response was that it was just Dash’s nature to be anxious and said that she would explain to him that I had to leave to go to work or run errands but that I would always come back to him.

She then reassured me that his anxiety was just part of his personality and that he was very bonded to me. She said he was very bright and almost bossy in the way he was communicating her. That’s my little guy!

I thought our session was almost over when she spontaneously asked me about the large tabby cat that had passed on. Which, to me, referred to my cat Sophie who I had to put down shortly after I got Dash.

Again, I suppose she could have found this in my blog but she would have had to have done some serious digging and I don’t remember whether I ever posted a picture of my black tabby cat or not.

All in all, I have mixed feelings about the session but I’m glad I experienced it. Hoax or no hoax, it reassured me a little bit about Dash’s issues. Interestingly, when I asked her for her card she explained that she didn’t carry one because her phone would “ring off the hook”. I thought it was odd that she wasn’t grabbing the chance to potentially make money, but it made her a little more credible to me.
