Animals Communicating with Each Other

I communicate with animals telepathically, but can animals communicate with each other telepathically?  Yes!

Many households are comprised of several species.  In my case we have humans (adults, toddler, baby), cats, rabbit, and the (outdoor) horses.  And everyone communicates with everyone.  Mostly, however, the animals are just “being”; not chatting, gossiping, thinking…

My experience has been that many species use their natural languages: voice, body language, and telepathy to convey in the moment thoughts with one another.  They don’t tend to discuss experiences, or thoughts outside of the present.  They do say, “hey, let’s snuggle together”; they don’t tend to say, “hey, did you notice our person bought a new car last week?”

So if they can communicate with each other, then why don’t they get along?  Well, I am sure you can think of a few experiences where you lived with someone who spoke the same language as you, and yet you found yourself not getting along!  Telepathic communication does not replace instincts such as cats being afraid of dogs who chase them, cats feeling territorial when a new cat arrives, dogs distrusting the UPS guy, etc.  For the sake of survival it is a good thing that your hamster doesn’t try negotiating a peace agreement with the huntress cat telepathically (although I have seen a few succeed at that!)

Here are a few recent stories of inter-species communications from my own household:

Calvin and Number Five are one-year-old brothers.  Recently Calvin hurt his paw in a harrowing experience.  In the process of that event his body literally smelled like fear.  When he came back into contact with Number Five, the reunion was anything but loving.  Five smelled him and then attacked him.  He was reacting to the smell of fear.  This is a common cat exchange that puzzles many of my clients.  If they can communicate with one another why is Five being so “mean”?  Well, this is a natural, instinctual reaction to the smell of fear.   For Five it was not a time for “talking”, it was a time for immediate action.
I separated them for the moment, and communicated with both of them about what had happened and what needed to happen from then on.  I assured Five that he was safe and did not need to attack his brother.  Later that day I found them sleeping on opposite sides of our bed.  I needed to go upstairs for a few minutes and Sierra offered to take care of Calvin.  She gave him her favorite bunny and read him a book (Five was there, in the background of this photo).

After Five had witnessed Sierra’s calm kind way of being with Calvin, he got up and cuddled with his brother.

Bramley and the cats often communicate through touch and telepathy.  Bramley is often asking the cats to snuggle with him.  This photo series captures a moment where Calvin was crowding Bramley and being a little too “paws on”.  Bramley telepathically told Calvin to move over and Calvin replied by nuzzling his cheek.  Bramley gave in and tucked his face in for a good long afternoon of cat cuddling!

My neighbor’s horses are so much fun to watch while they graze in my field.  My favorite is when they challenge each other to a race.  The start line is about 100 yards away at the brook and the finish line is just before the fence near my house.  One will “say” go, and the other three will follow.  The other day I saw Spike get a late start, and he charged with all his might.  When he saw Hawk cross the finish line he was still about 15 yards behind.  He was so mad he started bucking.  I could literally see them all discussing the race results!

Horses, like most herd animals, are in constant contact with one another.  They are always deciding where to go; the brook, in the barn, the shade, the apple tree, etc.  They all take turns watching for predators, and they take care of one another when one wants to lay down for a nap.  They also bicker sometimes, but they say it is all part of being a herd.
