Coping with pet blues during Covid-19 lockdown

13 May 2020

Pet-owner closeness is frequently characterised as an emotional attachment. Its equivalent to that of parental care giving. In these days of lockdown, pets at home like many of us, tend to get depressed and have mood swings. Many have lost their freedom to move out and play! Even owners are confused—on whether the prevailing “social distancing” norms apply to their pets. In fact, both owners and pets, are confused. But most of all, how do you communicate to your pets that going out for a walk are an absolute No!

 

Here come the animal communicators. These people have so much to do at this time of pandemic. Like doctors save humans, animal communicators are a great help to animals. In most cases, the owner fails to understand the reason for their pets’ unexpected behaviour or sickness. In case of such matters, animal communicators are a boon. Animal communicators are blessed to have a telepathic conversation with animals over time, space and distance.  In animal communication, according to Pea Horsely, an animal communicator, information are sent and received non-verbally by intention using the senses. The details – thoughts, feelings, sensations – are electromagnetic energy. While many will disagree with this, it’s still a joy to delve into this world for curiosity.

 

News portal www.dnaindia.com in an article, written by Yoshita Rao, titled,  “Animal talk: It’s all in the mind”, quotes a Mumbai based resident’s story of their dog named Jenny, who was lying motionless, refused playing or going out for walks for days. Animal communicator, Joy Fromental – who was thousands of miles away in France – received a picture of Jenny from the owner and revealed the real reason for the dog’s act. Jenny was missing her owner, the father, who had briefly shifted to her brother’s place for six months and wished to meet him. Jenny was actually missing the fathers’ usual treats given under the table and also the morning walks.

 

This is just one example on how animal communicators can support pet dogs in case of depression. There are a few other cases. BBC recently reported in an article “Coronavirus lockdown: How are our pets coping with us?” about Jones, a labrador-retriever from Whittlesey in Cambridgeshire. He is a guide dog for 63-year-old Roy Richards. He was missing his usual walks and meeting his master and Richards’ friends.

 

So if your visit to the vet or treats aren’t working for your pet who may be in distress,  you can try contacting an animal communicator. In a book written by Pea Horsley, “The Animal Communicator's Guide Through Life, Loss and Love” explains the process of grief, how normal it is to feel the loss of a pet and how to help to resolve the emotions of bereavement. According to Pea who gave up her service as a stage manager, “We are all connected, all of the time, across any distance” – which she considered as the most natural thing in the world.  She explains incidents about a rabbit named Peter and Willow, a cat – whom she got connected through her telepathic powers over their photographs. She communicated with Peter, when he was not having teeth-related issues, but later revealed to the animal communicator that he had a spike on one of his teeth and that had caused an ulcer. Later when the vet was informed about this, the latter confirmed it and thus saved Peter. The rabbit went on to live for two more years.

 

Emily Plec, a Professor of Communication Studies at Western Oregon University, in her book “Perspectives on Human-animal Communication: Inter-natural Communication” quotes Charles Saunders Peirce, a semiotician – feelings can function as signs. He argued that animals have an instinct for communication and that the capacity to feel with another is the basis for perception.

 

According to Shira Plotzker (where is she from), a pet psychic, who doesn't actually hear animal voices, she says, like a gruff bark telling her where a lost pet can be found. Instead, she receives telepathic messages in something like a very animated child's voice. Dogs, not surprisingly, are better communicators than cats, she says.

 

 According to experts, there are many ways to keep pets active at home. Play games to keep them active. Throw unused rollers or balls to a distance, so that this will give them some exercise. Like humans it is also important to prepare pets to face the reality once when lock-down is lifted.
