Thanks so much for helping out with my cat, Bobby. He did rally around
after your Reiki treatment, but unfortunately he passed away Saturday morning
here. His little heart was just not strong enough to withstand the
deterioration that had occurred. May he now be at peace. Should he try to come back, I would appreciate you letting me know so that I can again have him with me here. I miss him so much! Love, Dr. AL, Hong Kong
Hi Cathy, I wanted to send you a special thank you for your help with Emma in Benicia. It was difficult and absolutely not a moment too soon with this rain.
Bruce took care of her with Sarah and the vet. She was typical Emma and not too cooperative (as you said), but we were all a team!. It was pretty amazing.
We are now going through the transition of missing Emma. Bruce had a visit from Emma with overwhelming gratitude for her freedom. It was really special to him. Thank you again for helping Emma and us through this process. You are a gifted Spirit and much appreciated.
EH & BH, Benicia, California
Cathy, thank you so very much for speaking with Jess and me on Saturday. It helped me tremendously. I just needed to know that she was o.k. and that I would get to see her again. While I am still very upset over her loss, a huge weight has been lifted since speaking with you and her.I look forward to speaking with you again, CB, Florida
Hi Cathy, Whatever you said to our little Sobek Ra really worked. He has consistently asked to go outside when he needs to urinate or defecate. Only twice did he do something in the house and it was when we were away for a few hours. He hasn't had any poop hanging off of his face so I assume he isn't eating it. And we are keeping him in third place with treats, etc. So thanks again for your excellent work. I gave your cards away and would appreciate getting more to give to my clients. I have given your phone number to several more, but I think the cards really work best. BRB, California
Hi Cathy! Just wanted to thank you for a great reading on Wednesday! I feel like I learned a lot and confirmed a lot, too! Life in the house is already better! I didn't know that Madden knew how to sit! I've always had to hold the food over her nose and work it back (like they trained us in puppy classes). However, Wednesday night after our talk, I told her to sit for her dinner and she abeyed on the first try. Thursday was the same!! And Casper hasn't growled at her (that I know of) in the past 2 days either!! Madden also tried playing with Teddi Wednesday night! I had never seen her grab a sock and throw it in the air and run around throwing her butt up into the air!! It was too cute and I can't wait for this thing between Madden and Casper to clear up so that they all can start playing together!! I'm hoping that things will improve a little every day, but as you said, I'm not going to push it!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

Thanks for your Animal Communication Level I Class yesterday. I came home and sat on the floor, eyes closed, withmy dogs, Buck and Lucy. Buck has a sore paw and he finally let me look at, and handle it after I explained I didn't want to hurt him, just take a look -- nothing serious, no blood, I'm thinking bruised, probably hurt it in a digging frenzy. Lucy was very, very excited and was all over me, giving me kisses (normally she reserves her kisses for men), and licking my ear.Thanks again for everything. I promised Buck a chance to explore, so I'd better get ready, he and Lucy are waiting for me. --KB, California
Thanks so much Cathy for sharing your time, gift and wisdom with my dog and me today :). I know she really enjoyed the reading, as did I. I’m so glad to know these things about her. Warm regards, JK, California
Thank you for the reading. I feel fantastic! I love how I was able to 'hear' or lend a voice to my great companions. I think you provide a wonderful service and I am thankful that I discovered animal communication. I know there are many out there who do not know that such services exist. By lending a voice to our animal companions we can better understand them, which is exactly what you did for me. Words cannot describe how thankful I am. told my whole family and they thought it was interesting. I held Gizmo, and he seemed more relaxed and content (if that makes any sense lol). I just feel overwhelmed. They are such cool companions (Gizmo, Spike and Crystal)I love their character and humour.
Thanks, and all the best!!!--RG, Toronto, Canada
Many hugs back to you also for your help in taking Lucky and my relationship to a whole different level.—T. H., California
Hi Cathy—Just wanted to let you know that Tosh started eating a few days after we talked. He has since recovered. Not sure how...it feels like a miracle. I am thrilled to have him back to his old Kingly Self minus a few pounds.
Thanks for everything --A.D. & Tosh, Califoria
Thank you again for the wonderful consultation you did for Cleo and me. After we got off the phone, I let little Fiona out of her room and she started looking at me and studying my face. then she laid down next to me and took a long nap. Since the consultation, she is more responsive. We got word about her feline leukemia test and it came back negative so that is good news. She is a very healthy cat.
Blessings, E. A., California
Thanks for you sweet card, brochure, and newsletter! Thank you also for your prayers, I think they're working. Your counseling has given me a profound change of heart. The key word is "unconditional love." Getting angry at my cat, punishing her or thinking about giving her away or even having her put to sleep only proves to her that I don't love her. She does want to live! But her only defensive weapon is not to use her litter box. Today I cuddled her for a long time and apologized to her for all the hurtful things I have ever said, thought, or done to her. I told her I love her and suggested that we each put down our weapons and make love not war. You said to look for progress, not perfection- but I won't even insist on progress: that's up to her! All I'll do is love her, no matter what. I even dismantled her "timeout-room room," since it wasn't helping. Maybe it's too late for her to change; if so, I must accept that. It occurred to me that I'm not doing all too well with my own New Year's resolutions. Mustn't it be even harder for an animal to overcome habits and instinct and turn over a new leaf?
Regarding my cat, though, I think I'm doing better than I was last year when I consulted Marta Williams. She told me essentially the same thing, but I wasn't ready to hear her!—R.S., Pennsylvania
Thank you so muck for being there! I'm going to love another puppy (Border Collie black, and white) like my beloved Heidi in April when they arrive. I pray it can be me sweet love returned to me, if not her, I know she is sending this little girl to me. May the joy of the Holliday Season remain with you throughout the coming year and have a happy New Year too!--CR, Arizona
Cathy, Tootsabelle and I wish to thank you extremely for your kind words--"My Little Kitty in the Shy" would make a cute song or children's book, wouldn't it?
Blessings for all the wonderful work you're doing! Know Wolf is happy you carried forth his message. Perhaps there will be one from the Factory Farms Animals to enlighten those that need to be!
Cathy-Thank you so much for your help with Java and Tonka during our move. I was so worried! Java came from a feral family and while he is domesticated and loves us, he still hates being in confined spaces for long periods of time-he is truly an outdoor cat!!! Both cats breezed through the move with hardly a hint of anxiety. It was as if they didn't want to cause any more trouble -they stayed in and calm and pretty much kept to themselves. I remembered what you said about Java wanting a time limit of two weeks in the new home before being let out, however, I was inclined to keep him in a bit longer when a carpenter accidentally left a door open and he was out and gone. I didn't panic and I sent him "messages" that it was okay that he was out but that he needed to come home when it got dark. Just as the sun was setting he strolled in!!! Tonka took her time exploring her new yard and neighborhood and both cats are well adjusted and happy. Thanks Cathy. I know it was your conversation with them that made the difference.—D.S., California
Thank you very much for your help this morning in communicating with Sumi, Sammy, and Anissa. It was very interesting to see Sammy's reaction during the consultation and after. While we were discussing him, he was very active in the room. Afterwards, it was quite remarkable. He settled down on the couch between me and Charlie allowed Charlie to pet him for quite some time. He had a long long long petting & chatting session and we could tell he was with us 100%. He has never allowed us to do that before. He was purring up a storm, making muffins, and was very very content. It was wonderful. All cats are sensitive, but he is more so than the average. It is heartbreaking to think of anyone being cruel to him. We told him he is surrounded by love and no one will ever hurt him again. When I told him Charlie wants to put him in his pocket and protect him, he meowed back! A soft little "aaaaa."
Thank you for sharing your gift and helping us help our babies. —N.B. and C. B. along with Sumi & Sammy & Anissa & Callie & Magic & Ouzo, California
THANK YOU! For being such a good friend and support and guiding light during our "crisis." We could not have landed on "our" feet without you! Your support, love & encouragement have been very precious to us-and, as always, your gifted presence! You are gifted!!! From the bottom of my heart, thank you for being our friend.—K.C. New York
Thank you so much for the lovely card and the poems. They are very comforting, and we appreciate your thoughts and care. It has been extremely difficult, but we are muddling through. We really appreciate your help with the process, and know that it made it easier.—J.T, California
It's me Baker (the cavalier). Thanks for telling my mom what i was thinkin'!!
Thank you for your words of support & insight and for giving us a better understanding of Kujo's desires. We had a nice brunch where all her old friends (&ex-roommates) came over, then Heidi and I had some moments with her, lit some candles, etc & the vet aided her departure. 20 minutes later the Blue Angels started their show-thank Goddess!!
--J.S. & H.V. California
Thanks again for your wonderful words of wisdom & whatever it was you "spoke" to Kujo and Loretta. Your insights are definitely comforting--as wells humorous & informative.
My mom & I want to thank you a whole bunch for visiting with us last Friday. You're a tough cookie (and) you were very nice making me feel very, very special! My mom and I are working a lot better because now we understand each other better. My mom said that I'll see you in a few months for a follow-up visit. I am really excited and looking forward to seeing you again…
With lots of Emme kisses and best wishes,—Dame Emme & Mommie, California
It was wonderful to meet you! Thank you for validating my truth!! Four kittens are playing in kitchen!!
I want to thank you for your willingness to utilize your talents and gifts to help people like me to better understand the little animal that is living in my house with me. The session with you has profoundly changed the nature of my relationship with Redkin. In fact, I even discussed your skills with a friend with an autistic child. Thank you for helping to translate animals' language. I now better understand the parameters that define a dog's life.
With Sincere gratitude,—G.G. and Redkin in California
