Excerpts from When Your Pet Dies - Animals are Spirits, Too

Animals Do Communicate Through Mediums:

Our pets are spirits, just as all life is spirit. When our pets pass away, through death, they will endeavor to link with us and, if the opportunity lends itself, to communicate. Over the years, I have had many animals communicate through my mediumship in order to let their human loved ones know they are OK. They have given evidence of their survival by showing themselves, as they were while on earth, and conveying many of their character traits. And believe me: for some, communication from a pet can be just as moving as communication from a human loved one.

Animals do not communicate in exactly the same way human spirits do. They appear -- through clairvoyance -- just as humans do, but their communication tends to be more "thought-form" oriented. If you consider this, it makes perfect sense. Animals have not developed speech, yet they do communicate with us, through telepathic transmission of thought forms and desires. When my dog wants a treat or wishes to go out, he sits and stares at me intently. You can see he is focussing his thoughts and thinking so very strongly what he desires to communicate to me. At times, you can almost see the thoughts jumping from his head to my mind. And, if after a while, I just don't get the thought, he comes up to me and barks; his way of verbalizing those thoughts.

When animals communicate through mediums, their "message" comes forward in much the same way. The medium just knows what the animal wishes to communicate to his or her earthly loved one. Other than that, mediumistic communication from animals is very much as it is from humans.
