The following explains a lot about how a Pet Communicator fits in to the scheme of things. I think you'll find this write-up interesting....
Earth is populated by various life forms. In the interest of keeping it simple, let's think of things in terms of broad groupings: people, animals, and plants. (I will not be addressing the plant kingdom here in great depth as this is not the purpose of my services via this web site, but people who have good communication with plants know that the following applies to this life grouping as well. I do get a lot of mentions from the animals about how they interact with certain plants, shrubbery, etc., "wood gods", tree spirits, this type of thing. I have long since learned to not poo-poo anything that an animal tells me. If this interaction is what is real to them, this is fine with me!)
Regardless of other concerns, confusions or conclusions, one will find that all research done by any field, religion, philosophy, science or even casual examination leads one to the same conclusion:  LIFE is LIFE. We and our co-occupants on this planet are always (1) physical life forms (atoms & molecules; cells & tissues; carbon, oxygen, water, this type of thing), (2) which are animated by life force (detectable in an obvious form as dead vs alive: a person on the street vs. a body in the morgue, to give a graphic but very real example), (3) with a mind to help control and figure out things in life, and (4) with generally one contactable being BEING in charge of things. In your case, that's, well, YOU. In your pet's case, that's "the guy behind the eyes" that you know and love. You know who I mean.
We all use our minds to think about things, monitor our actions and bodies, decide when to move ourselves around, ponder the other guy's intentions or actions, and generally make conclusions about things. These conclusions may be wrong or right based on the information we have available to us, but in any case, that's what the mind's for - to take information, mull it over, and solve or conclude things. I'm sure you can think of examples of using your mind every single day to help you run your life, your body, and so on. Well, it's no different in the Animal Kingdom.
Now, "animals" as we know them have a different type of body than we and are more stimulus-response "programmed" for more base survival. Their outlook is much simpler: eat, sleep, reproduce, survive, then maybe play a bit ~ so general behavior seems not only simpler but perhaps less "intelligent" than the average human's. They are in fact quite intelligent and are quite aware of everything that is going on. You may be a computer programmer and a high IQ person.  That doesn't mean you can do car repair! - but the fact that you cannot do car repair does not mean that you're low IQ, either. The average domesticated animal has no real need nor opportunity to hone skills that they in fact cannot perform due to physical handicaps (a dog cannot hold and use a screwdriver) nor do they have the luxury of being able to analyze much information. They hear and understand, and filter out that which is useless to them. Think "Nell". Think "reystoke" (Tarzan). Think 5 year old mentality: IQ but lack of education and/or functional life lessons.
Additionally, with pets, generations of domestication combined with being raised by humans weeds out a lot of their survival skills and they know this. They may think they're big bad predators, but they still depend on you for food, shelter, guidance, protection, illness and wound care, and they will follow your lead in decision making. Their needs and interests revolve around their own and their adopted family's survival. Their job in life is to give unconditional love, to protect you and themselves, to try to heal you when you feel bad (such as trying to lick your wounds, pressing up against you when you feel sick etc.), and the like. LET THEM BE WHO THEY ARE. They are not human beings (being + human body), they are animal beings (being + animal body), and should be allowed to flourish and enjoy this state of existence.
Just as a blind man's hearing can become quite honed, an animal's telepathy is a primary survival and communication tool and they are quite good at it. It's very natural to them. We're the ones that balk at this fact while they continue on as they have for millions of years!
Ever walk into a room and get the feeling like someone's standing in the corner, so you turn and look and you still know it - but there's "no one there"? Guess what.
Animals have a keener sense of this than we generally do, as it's not a "suppressed" and "interpreted" (or pooh-poohed) ability for them. This, by the way, occasionally explains out-of-the-blue reactions a household pet has - a sudden bark, the cat who quickly glances at some part of the room, the bird who goes real quiet for no reason and then resumes singing. A perfect example of this occurred in my own household once with my dog. Yes, he'll hear an outside noise and react to it, but this one was different. It happened in the middle of the night. He woke up and started barking. I woke up and looked at him ~ he was standing on our bed, staring at "nothing" in the middle of the room, barking at this nothing. Gave me the creeps, Fox barking at the air, because he was quite insistent and also unvarying, staring at the same spot in space and barking steadily. This was no "outside noise". As accustomed as I am to telepathy, this still caught me off-guard and I sleepily tried the "Fox, it's OK, there's no one there" tired BS approach. Bark, bark, bark. He wouldn't even look at me and his stance was very much on guard. This was a very real danger to him, four alarm bell alert!
I figured (sigh - no sleep allowed here) the truth would resolve things, and said, "Fox. You're right. There IS someone here". He instantly stopped barking and turned his head to look at me with very widened eyes.The look was "(Gulp) Maaaahmeee?!?" No kidding. Well, now I had to follow through as he was no longer the Big Protector/Alarm Bell, he was the little puppy who needed Den Mommy to do something. Yikes!
I decided that not only would I "clean the room out", I'd enlist Fox Mulder's natural telepathic ability to help to do so, so that if this came up again, he'd feel more empowered. So I said, "OK, the being is upset about something. Let's find out what he's upset about so he leaves us alone and goes bye-bye. Mommy AND Fox will do this together". His expression changed from shock to curiosity. I told him we were going to listen to what this being had to say, and so on, some basic instructions. We both turned our heads to face the "spot". (Must have been real odd looking!) We did our thing, and the upset being took off. I gushed to Fox about how well he did in handling this guy, got a BIG proud tail wag, then he simply looked at me as though nothing had happened ("Yeah, Mom, I'm cool, knew I could handle things") and plopped down onto the bed to promptly fall fast asleep!
If I had BS'd him at all, this would not have occurred. I know, I've tried in the past when I'm too tired to have sufficient freed-up attention to really do anything! It never works. He knows I'm BSing him and just carries on until I acknowledge the truth of the situation.
So I learned a lesson that night and am passing it along to you as an example of one angle of How It All Works.
A being creates their own mental image pictures as well as the ones they "record". That is, if you drive to 7-11, you can later recall the drive, the store, the clerk, whatever, with or without the mental pictures you recorded automatically as it occurred. Recall some time you did something, and look at the mental pictures of it. OK, that's what I mean about that.
Now, you can also decide, on your own, to create, fabricate, your own imagined picture of, I don't know, you were driving and you "saw" a green elephant on the side of the road. Do this for fun. OK. You've got that picture. Nothing wrong with it - it's called "imagination"!
A being "puts out" mental pictures of what they look like. "They" meaning their body. We associate ourselves with our bodies/ as "being" our bodies, we think. We look in the mirror and think, "How do 'I' look today?" Oops! That's our body! WE don't "look" like anything! We're spiritual beings. But, that's how we associate, identify ourselves. So be it - nuthin' wrong with that! but the distinction needs to be made here.
OK...We die. Dog dies. Someone dies. No more body. Can't be "seen" when we go into the room, or whatever. I get a lot of upset beings when I do passed over animals..."I was in the room and Mommy was crying "I miss Fifi" and I was right there and she didn't know it!!" type of thing.
Beings have the ability to create, mock up, put out, mental pictures of what "they" looked like, that is, them plus body. Some put out reeeeeeal vivid pictures. Pictures are measurable - scientists have been measuring this for like years - you can actually weigh this and so on. "I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders" etc...well, guess what?
So, some beings really create strong images. Then some come along who can perceive them (many cannot, many can but pooh-pooh it etc). We call it "seeing a ghost". Yes, there's someone there, and they're schlepping around these mental pictures for all to view. (The "someone" is the one I contact during a Pet Consultation, by the way. The photographs I like to have are my way of "having", or "seeing", what they "look" like which makes it easier for them to like me, to relate to me, to open up, since I now "know" them. You see?)
Communication can still occur between species and in fact does all the time. The Pet Communicator listens to what the being has to say. This may also be accompanied by pictures from the animal's mind, "words" heard, and the like. But the telepathy occurs between us two beings.
This has been going on since there have been animals and humans co-existing on the same planet.
Animals communicate telepathically or through thought, and often pictures and sometimes audible words are involved for the Pet Communicator. The Pet Communicator receives these on a conscious level and translates them into human words. Those thoughts and concepts, words, feelings, impressions, and pictures form the essence of the communication from your animal.
Telepathy between animals goes on all the time, humans just seldom pay attention.  To understand animal telepathy in action, imagine a flock of birds traveling overhead and all suddenly changing direction at the same time. That's one type of example. And if you watch, you will also see the telepathy between animals in the most common of scenarios; watch them interact. Look beyond the obvious (sniffing, pawing, etc.). Observe two dogs together, or some pigeons strolling around and occasionally passing an idea back and forth. Lizards, your aquarium fish...any and all of them. As an exercise, you should actually take the time to do this and more than one time.
So animals are communicating by thought and this is routine for them. Interspecies communication between people and animals is possible too. Everyone has the ability to communicate this way but most people don't know how to go about it or have the time to master this skill. This is where the Pet Communicator is called in.
It can be frustrating for animals without this help...can you imagine if you were in a room full of people that you knew, by name, and really liked, and wanted to talk with, and they spoke words...but when you opened your mouth, all that came out were basically a bunch of sounds that no one else seemed to understand? Barking, meowing, mooing, hissing - there you have it. How horrible it can be!
Run it back a bit further.  Right before you open your mouth to speak, you have decided what it was you are going to say and to whom. Well, so does the family dog. He has something to communicate to you, and the intention to get it across to you.  Ever sit by your computer working and feel like someone was "beaming" you? You turned around and found your fish staring right at you quite intently.  You smiled, knowing little Chucky was saying "Hi" - well, he was! Someone walking in right then might think you a little odd for saying Hi "back" to your fish, but you know the communication passed between you.
So these beings have something to say but are severely physically handicapped: no spoken words, they're underwater, whatever.  This does NOT mean that they cannot be heard ~ because the original communication was telepathic anyway!
Nor does the fact that they are not "looking at you" or "showing" emotions in the same manner as a human does mean that they are not there, listening, and experiencing. This is VERY important. Your rabbit can be apparently just sitting there wiggling his nose and looking at the wall, when at the same time he is telling you something telepathically. The communication is occurring, whether you "get" it or not. This is a fact but is very hard for people to wrap their minds around sometimes.  If the dog is telling the Pet Communicator that Fido is very happy at home but all the owner sees is Fido is laying there staring at a chair leg, it's hard to believe that any communication passed between anyone! Well, it was. Remember, animals do not normally ever communicate in the same fashion as humans do so they don't use the same expressions and body language we do, nor does it necessarily occur to them to try and do so. They don't have the same facial muscles or vocal cords, they're used to telepathy, and in fact they're used to no one understanding what they have to say in the first place. They bark because it creates the desired effect, but they sure the heck know as well as we do that there are no human words articulated. We get accustomed to types of barks and meows (just as we do certain motions and actions they do) because it is a form of communication, and one that they can and will do to try their darndest to get their point across to the non-receptive (telepathically) or doubting-Thomas owner.
Household "training" extends only to what the owner "needs" to know, such as this dog pokes you with his nose to go out, and that cat dances around and meows when you approach the kitchen. In these two examples, these body language signs would have to have been worked out early on as these communications are "important" (and they are). But the point of what I'm telling you is that there are other things the animal is trying to tell you which you may miss because there's no "obvious" way for them to use their body to show you.
That's where a Pet Communicator, Pet Psychic, Pet Translator, Pet Intuitive, Pet Consultant enters in. For any number of reasons, we can "read" these communications and don't falter at it or doubt ourselves or what the animal is saying. Hopefully. I know I don't. You probably have this ability as well, just untapped or unacknowledged - but that's another story! I know if I'm unsure of something, it needs to be sorted out or talked out, and there's always something behind my uncertainty and sooner or later that animal will "out with it" and it'll all come together.
No different than talking to anyone else.
Intention & Mental Pictures:  A human being decides to communicate something. He does so with words, "body language", pictures, drawings, smiles, a raised eyebrow, whatever.  But he is always the one sending the idea across to another and his decision to do this comes before any motion or sound he may make.
This is true of animals, too. They decide to say something and then do so. As with people, this is sometimes accompanied by a mental picture, and/or a thought consisting of words.  But not always! Someone asks, "What's your name?" and you reply "John". You don't have to think about it. You don't necessarily have to "hear" the word John in your mind.  (Some do, some don't.) If you are asked what you had for dinner 4 nights ago, perhaps you would have to think for a bit. You may or may not hear "Roast beef - which was a bit overcooked, and potatoes" in your mind.  You might "see" the potatoes sitting on the plate. Or not.
And when you went to answer the question about what you had for dinner that night, you could simply say "roast beef and potatoes", "roast beef", or "overcooked roast beef", depending on what you decided to communicate. And the decision would, as you know, come just prior to opening your mouth to speak.
Now, if someone were "reading your mind", it might go like this:  They ask you what you had for dinner 4 nights ago (but you are not to answer vocally). Your attention goes on that. While you are mulling this over, the psychic person might see in their mind your picture of potatoes on a plate, and also hear your mind's word "overcooked". Perhaps they also get the idea (without words or pictures) that you had roast beef. You say nothing; this psychic's conclusion could then be either, correctly, that you had overcooked roast beef and also potatoes, or the misinterpreted version that you had overcooked potatoes.  
If you intended for the psychic to "get it" correctly, you would make sure it was straight in your mind that it was overcooked roast beef, and potatoes, and you would intend for the psychic to know this. And the psychic would get just that, if the communication came cleanly over to them and they were perceptive enough to detect it. Remember, an example of telepathy would be if one person thought of something specific and another person stated or wrote the thought correctly. Translating needs to be done between species; interpreting is an entirely different matter.
In Animal Communication, concepts, sensations, tastes, emotions and mental pictures can inter-relate, or not. Example: a dog can give me the idea of "eating dog food out of a bowl". Depending on how they focus when they transmit it, I can get: That the dog is thinking about the subject of eating (but not necessarily actually eating); the idea that the dog is eating; that the dog is eating dog food; that the dog is eating dog food out of a bowl; any of those plus the the taste of the saltiness of food. I can perhaps see a bowl with food in it, maybe not. If I get the idea of the dog eating, that does not mean that he is eating dog food, that this dog food is in a bowl, or that he likes this food.
What "language" does my pet speak?
This I need to break down, as there are a TON of misconceptions and expectations connected to this one.
This part of the write-up came when an owner did the "info write-up" for me and mentioned a few names to ask their passed over pet about. What do you think of Josie? Do you see Stevie and Johnny? Well, I had no idea if these were human, animal, human and animal, alive or passed over, etc. Stevie could be male or female. Johnny could be a goldfish or the owner's dead brother. Who knows?  In that this has come up before, I decided to add a bit on this to my site.
When I talk to your pet, you'll be right there in on the conversation, yes, but nonetheless I need to have correct concepts in my mind, so I need to know who significant people (or beings) are, like Josie, Stevie and Johnny. (I can assume all I want, but that's not knowing.) It's like I'm a go-between and translator and it's rapid-fire so I just need to know what concept to send during a conversation. Think of it as a regular conversation. Your sentences (and the other person's) are things you understand. If not, you stumble, ask for clarification, etc.
The words are....they're for us, the humans. The concept is what your pet and I are swapping back and forth.
Although essentially simple, it's a bit hard to explain. Let me try here:
If I sent you the idea of a pink elephant, telepathically, I wouldn't send loud clunky "audible in your head" words Peeeeenk Ellllll-le-fent.....I'd just send you the IDEA of one and you'd suddenly get the idea of a pink elephant.
Hey, you just got one anyway, and there were no words to it. You just got it, and/or saw a mental picture of one.
Hypothetically ~ If I out of the blue sent you a mental picture of one, you'd also suddenly get the idea of a pink elephant.
In either case, you'd wonder why. You'd think you were overtired. Whimsical. Stoned. Whatever people think with sudden ideas. No matter; it occurred, in this case, because I sent it to you.
IF you and I agreed beforehand that I was going to send you an idea (or a picture), but not what, and you and I were in good enough communication that 1. I could send it and 2. you could receive, let's say, I'd go ahead and send it in either fashion (idea or mental picture), and you'd go, Pink Elephant. And I'd say, Yup!
NOW add to that: language. Words symbolize concepts. (With a few reader exceptions, ) you and I use contemporary American English words. If I said Bones says he remembers the time you put his toy in the boot, you'd go Huh? because you never did any such thing or don't own boots, but what if I were British? I would have meant the trunk of the car. So you'd go OH! when I told you that. Yes, I recall putting his toy in the trunk of the car.
And if you and I were both British, that clarification would never have had to been made.
If you and I spoke French, I'd tell you everything Bones said, using the French language. But Bones isn't speaking in any language, he's just sending me an idea. No different than you sitting on the couch and suddenly getting the idea that you'd like to glance at the door to see if the paint's fading because it's been seven years since the room was painted. No "audible words" there, you just GOT the idea, and you got it in No language. It was just - an idea.
So your pet doesn't speak any language. On occasion, a word or phrase will crop in there.  Apple. Pay the rent. &#&^ (swearing).  HBO. Treat. Car. Kitty. President. Set the table.   These words float around as part of a means to communicate, just as they do for us (but for us, it's our primary way, telephathy's a way second or worse. With animals, it's the other way around, they're into telepathy, sending emotions, and mental pictures.) So sometimes I'll tell you   He's upset because the Woman down the street with the GOOCHIBAG wears icky smelling perfume which burns his nose when you run into her on the street while walking him for his POOPIEWALK.   The concept came from him, and it was sprinkled with "human words" which I'll usually point out were his actual human English words, but I say so just as an fyi to you, not that it "matters" (and sometimes the concepts come so fast and furious there's not much differentiation, which is fine because the point is just to get you the communication in the first place).
As a related point, it really helps for Aunt Julie to know what she's talking about while we're in communication with them and I'm sending them concepts, so let me know who Josie, Stevie and Johnny are, OK? Otherwise they get no true concept and they go as blank on it as I. It just log-jams the conversation. So when you're emailing me with some info, just mention who you're referring to, what the significance is, type of thing.
A recent email about Max the dog and Charlie Ann the kitty which may shed some more light on things:
"Your help has been awesome. I have Max in a corner based on understanding me. He used to act like he didn't understand me. Now I know he does. So I was able to make it clear that he was to be nice to Charlie Ann. I made him tell me he understood by wagging his tail. He did only twice. So I know he gets it that the jig is up. Boy he is a smart dog. I can also tell Charlie Ann understands too. She does exactly what I ask. What smart furkids. It is so neat to know that our communication is working out so well. You definitely started all of it." ~ DD
When I tell you they understand every word you say, I mean it. Now, it's true that they don't always do so well with spoken language. Why is this?
Once again, think 5 year old child mentality. The "package" that is your dog or your cat is NOT just the being nor is it just a bag'o'molecules (a table). Someone IS there but that someone has a body which is an animal species and as such, is to a great degree, at the mercy of that species' entire genetic history, and its current "blueprinting". So there are handicaps involved, is all.  
Very few people realize the truth of the matter, that they can and do understand. It's VERY easy, even for me, to slip into forgetting, because they act like they don't understand a lot of the time, their attention span can be very short, their understanding of the concepts in the first place can be quite limited (What parrot grasps "the IRS"? What cat understands retailing?), and, their understanding, when it comes via hearing words, IS limited because their use of the language, themselves, is unskilled (obviously). One has to work at, drill, practice something to become adept at things like language and vocabulary, be it spoken, braille, signing, writing, tapping - whatever - and these guys can't. That is, we talk, they don't. There's no reinforcement. So it's really hard. The conceptual (via telephathy) is much better, but then the being still has to continue "being a dog". What you see is Rover, what he thinks is thoughts like you, what he computes and retains and operates with is a confusing combo.

TRANSLATION TIP (From a Case History)
Recently I was in touch with a passed over cat who suddenly felt a welling of affection toward and strong feeling of missing his owner. He could barely spew the emotions out fast enough. He, for lack of better wording, blurted out, "Don't ever take it for granted, take anyone for granted. 9-11 taught us all that." He paused a bit mid-stream; he knew what he was trying to say but had no clue really what "9-11" meant, nor did he live in New York or any such obvious clue as to how he would have linked onto this term "9-11" as equating with not taking someone for granted. Yet it was the perfect wording for his concept.  
This is basically the same as a child repeating something in the playground which  sounded "cool" on TV while having no idea what it means. This cat being didn't exactly know what "9-11" meant but let me know that he had connected the "for granted" concept associated with its use from a lot from other beings; it had been tossed around a lot as a concept about 9-10 months back, and the concept seemed appropriate and that had been why he threw the "9-11" words at me, in the hopes that it would well-communicate to the owner.
I passed it along and also decided to clarify things for him in a fashion he could comfortably accept. Now was not the time for gruesome History Lessons. Out of context here, but I really got that this particular being was not up to it. How I handled it was I let him know about tall buildings that had had thousands of people, humans, in there, and the buildings fell down NOT because of bad construction (as this would have scared this particular cat about the subject of buildings) but because they got bumped too hard - and people got hurt and some died, kind of a lot, and so other humans went "oops!" and realized that it might have felt a little bit better if they had said goodbye to certain people that morning. And 9-11 is the human nickname for that day.
Just like that, no more, no less. And this he could accept and in fact responded that he understood why so many beings were in a tizzy (also his word) for a couple of months and also why "9-11" meant "don't take people for granted" to many human beings.
The bottom line here is translation is a bending and forgiving art between any two languages, and animals, not well versed with "human-speak", need special attention and caution so that both directions of communication are well preserved.

Representative Images
This is a term I made up J which means that the animal being shows me what he's trying to get across using a picture, image such as a generic "ocean scene", or an actual TV character or movie scene. Usually it is one he has intuited that I will know. They do this by taking things from my mind (as they are sharing my mind just as I share theirs, sort of a co-swap occurrence if you will), or something they have seen which they know I will know or which they know anyone would know.
It's not dissimilar to the "language" concepts I just went over. If you reflect on it a bit, you'll come up with your own examples you've got stashed away in your mind. Perhaps to you an "alien" is always a little green man with those almond-shaped eyes, an "apartment buliding" always comes in as a flash mental picture of that one building you grew up living next to, or an elephant always has tusks.
If your pet is trying to get across concepts to me, he'll send me his pictures OR he'll send me an image that he has plucked out of my mind which he knows I will associate with the concept. If he for example (for some reason) was trying to communicate "life from another planet" he could send me a mental picture of one of those little green men, regardless of the fact that he had not seen one, watched a movie that had one, etc.
Ever notice how your dog sometimes seems "confused" by words? He's been playing with the "badger" for the past few days, that's his latest craze. He's long forgotten the "birdie" from last week. Okay. You say, Go find Birdie! Associating "birdie" as being the toy he's into, he runs right over to the badger toy and happily retrieves it
In any case, the generic scenes feel generic, like looking at a "live" postcard, quick or floating/stand-alone image. They are unto themselves, as images, emotionless, and are  non-incidents. Real incidents feel like real incidents.
Example: My mother is a Princess! they show me a flash mental picture of a generic "Princess", a beautiful young lass with a tiara, unicorn by her side, handsome Prince faded image in the forest background, etc.
Example: "I used to be a horse back in the (concept sent: "Southern days" / mental picture sent with it, a scene from the movie 'Gone With The Wind' - a movie I've seen countless times - with Scarlett O'Hara sitting there at the barbeque with her beaus....and wait! There's Rover! superimposed right into the scene...but now he's a horse!)
Example: "The dog came up to me and was scary!" They send me a picture of them and the "scary dog", and it's happening right in front of the house I grew up in as a child. Concept is that this occurred "in front of their home" - but they choose to show me MY home as this, to them, will make it "real" for ME that it was, well, "home" (to them).
Example: See this short Testimonial (then come on back!) 
The list and examples go on and on. All of the above actually occurred and many, many more. They do this to be helpful and because every being uses their own "system" of getting their ideas across. I pick up on, and relay, what they're trying to get across.
Similarly, recently a client's missing cat let us know that she was in a park. The sense included how a human's public park would be laid out, kids, swings, picnic tables kind of concepts, yet...none of the visuals on this very 100% nailed down. It was a combo of pictures and ideas. When the client asked me specifically if there were swings, I let her know that I could describe the  "feel" of the place: it was like a place that would have swings and/or other similar things but there wasn't necessarily so. To clarify, the place had the feel for a "public park", and the concept - how do I explain this? sometimes they send across a concept and they draw from what the human's "databanks" contain, to make it "make sense" or "get across". Like, the kitty would be there and have the idea, from what she'd picked up, perhaps, that this was a "park" to humans (whereas, see, for a cat, it's just another place and has no specific boundaries, like "This is the park, this is the sidewalk, this is the street" - to them, it's all one sprawling "world"). So like if she wanted to get across the idea of a spaceship's interior, she might show some shaky image that may or may not have "correct" instrument dials, but she knew that there had to be some sort of things which served those purposes. The image might fade in and out (of those dials) but the OVERALL visual would well-communicate "inside of spaceship". It's like that....I got that it was "a park" as we would call it, and some of the "criteria" for us to "make" it be a park would be this, that, this, that etc, one of which flashed across my mind from her as being "swings" and "kids". Could I tell the owner that there were or were not swings in this park if the cat had not made conscious "notice" of them? No. I could tell them what their kitty said that she saw, her sense of things, what ideas she had to offer about it.
How does it all work??
This is how I most frequently describe it to people:
Let's say you're sitting on the couch. You get the idea of going to the refrigerator and getting a piece of pumpkin pie. You decide to go get it. You stand up and walk over to the kitchen, open the fridge and get the pie. Yum!
OK. So. There you are on the couch. Now this is not two-way communication such as would be your telegraphing it over to some other being (i.e. Telepathy), but just get how this works for the example's sake....Here we go ~
Getting the idea is just that. That's what it is when I give the idea to your Rover that you are curious if he likes his name or not, and he gets the idea that he does. You don't necessarily say to yourself, or think with loud, clunky words to yourself, "Now I Will Stand Up And I Will Walk Over To The Re-frig-er-a-tor". And Rover doesn't necessarily say to me to pass along to you, "Yes-I-Like-My-Name". He just gets the idea of the question in the first place, and responds with the idea that he likes it.
I say to you, "He says he likes it".
OK. When you stand up to walk over the kitchen, you don't (necessarily) (hopefully!)  say to yourself "I Am Walking. Step. Step. Step." You just walk over there.
On the way over to the kitchen, you can easily think about 100 things. You forgot to drop off the electrical bill. Is your daughter taking her Algebra test right now? Oops! You have to put that last load into the dryer soon or it won't be ready before you have to pick up your daughter to take her to the mall. The mall has that exact thing you were thinking of buying for your neighbor for her birthday. You're gettin' old...not so old. Dad was 76 when he've got some years on you. IF you take care of yourself. Pie's a no-no. PIE! Yum! That pumpkin pie's awaitin'...!
In the middle of this you might "see" the front of the dryer. Feel a tiny twinge of anxiety for 2 seconds regarding hurrying up so you're not late picking up your daughter. Have the flash idea and mental picture of how nice you still look in that red dress and how Hubby still thinks you're a ain't that old! And you might "hear" the audible word in your head, "Pie!" with an excited sensation, you can taste it, your stomach growls, this type of thing.
A lot happening there? Well, sure, and this is normal. We're busy beings and walking is a reeeeeeal slow thing when compared to our speed of mental capacity. And all this on your way from the couch to the kitchen. And you may or may not be conscious of all of this (so to speak), least of all the rate of speed with which it is happening. And why should you? But remember, in the course of my communications with animals, I get the blow-by-blow, as will you as I pass it along.
Yes, such is the same with your Rover. So you may hear from me, "He says he likes it. He likes the name Rover. It sounds to him like he 'roves'. He's proud that he also knows what the word 'rove' means, as a human word. He uses the actual word 'rove'! The emotion sent to me is connected to that is like chest swelling up pride. Oh, so...ok so but he doesn't think you named him Rover because of that 'roving animal' concept. As a matter of fact, he's giving me the idea that - some earlier owner came up with that name. He recalls some man but can't remember his name. Emotion there is mild grief....OK, that's passed. OK....oh, and he's showing me a strong mental picture of a leash. Hang on - there's some 'point' to this leash picture - oh, OK! It represents 'going out' to him. Roving. The 'roving' concept. He's laughing about it now. Finds this all very amusing - emotion is 'mirth'."
And there you have the same elements: conception of ideas. The occasional "word" and/or mental picture, and/or emotion(s) accompanying each or some of the concepts.
Everyone's different and some explain it differently, but that's the long and short of it.
Other side of the coin: this is part of why psychics can be so suspect in people's minds. They can get things wrong, but you have to realize that they're just getting what's available, and are somehow supposed to interpret it without any help. Kind of like playing "20 questions". It helps if there is 2-way communication with both parties desiring the free interchange of ideas.
Thus it is with Animal Communication. Animals want to be heard just like anyone else. They are the "Silent Majority". Animals find the communication to be an extremely satisfying experience. They do get used to no one understanding their communications, which is frustrating, but their day-to-day joys override this frustration as they love to make you smile, they love the petting and scratching, they love to please you in any way possible, and they love YOU. They have a deep sense of that being their role in this life and this is as important to them as, say, your family or your job or your investments or your pride in a meal well-cooked or your car in good repair or your mother's health or anything else we care about. You are their entire life, beyond their own base survival.
In non-domesticated animals, their own survival and the survival of their offspring and mates are generally top priority. They do however co-habit this planet with humans (and other animals) and they often have questions, confusions, fears and concerns about "those odd humans" and the like. This, too, can be resolved with Animal Communication.
The purpose of this web site is to hook you and me up in order to enable you to communicate better with an animal (or animals), using my help as a Pet Communicator and Translator when needed. This can include your pet, your friend or neighbor's pet, or any animal(s) that you'd like to know better.
