Your Pet is Leaving you Signs

Time…It is all your pets want from you

Has this happened to you?

You walk past the window and see something on the glass.
What you see takes your breath away.
You take a closer look only to find a nose print from your departed companion animal.

You know with certainty that you cleaned that glass just the other day.
At that moment, you feel a cool rush of air surround you.
You ask out loud…
Is that you?

While getting ready for work you notice a new scratch on the countertop and you instinctively run your finger across it.
You realize it isn’t a scratch at all.
It’s a perfect whisker lying right where your angel used to sit every morning and wait for you to turn on the water.
There are no other cats in your home and you just recently cleaned and scoured the whole bathroom.
Suddenly, you feel something brush up against you.
You glance down but nothing is there.
You ask out loud…
Is that you?

You get up early to go for a run and put on your favorite pair of running shoes.
Something catches your eye as you tie your shoes.
Just lying in plain sight where you walked numerous times is a white feather.
You don’t have any birds or feather pillows.
Instantly, you hear the sound of toenails on the floor but no other pets are in the house.
You ask out loud…
Is that you?

You’ve been holding your breath since your angel took their last one.
You haven’t been ready to face the truth.
It suddenly becomes very real. They are physically gone from your life.

It’s been seven weeks, four days, and an excruciating sixteen hours since you said goodbye…

Every day seems like it is harder to cope with your loss than the day before.
It has been one of the most difficult things you’ve ever been through.
Love doesn’t end so the pain seems endless.

But now you know your angel is right here.
They’ve been there all along.

By your side.

Make them a promise that you will always appreciate the precious signs they send.
Never doubt them or say it’s just a coincidence.

Your two hearts still beat as one.
And they always will.

    I have had some out of body experiences. Just this morning I experienced Duke jumping on the bed and licking my forehead. I woke out of it crying, of course, but thanked him. I constantly find clumps of his hair too and save them all. When my ears ring, I kiss the tattoo I had done of him as a way to say thank you and I love you. Your book helped me tap into my spiritual side and I’m so thankful because I don’t know if I could have came out of my grief without it. He was and forever be my soulmate. Thank you.

    • Karen Anderson says:

      I am so sorry for the loss of your angel, Duke. I’m so glad my book has been a positive part of your healing journey. It is heartwarming to hear that your boy is sending you so many signs! You must be thrilled! So many do not get such obvious signs so thank you for sharing. Do you ask him to send you signs? It is amazing how the clumps of fur show up. It happens so often even if we have cleaned up or have no other pets. I hear this often and there is no explanation other than a visitation! Thank you for sharing your experiences with us and please keep taking small steps forward on your path into healing. Duke will be so happy for you. Sending love and healing…

    On the day of my dogs birthday, just about 1 month after she passed, I was walking out to my car, it was dark outside and when I looked up to the bright sky I saw her face in a cloud formation. I was able to get a picture and can’t believe the gift she gave to me on her birthday. I believe it was my precious Della telling me she was ok and always watching over me. Xoxo
    I would love to share this photo with you!

  3. Alicia says:

    If it weren’t for you I would have never known my angel, Barley was sending me signs. My husband and family made fun of me but you took the time to listen and and tell me that those were real signs. I am forever grateful for you and your wonderful books. Congratulations on your animal sanctuary. I’ll be a regular contributor. You have changed my life in so many wonderful ways.

    • Karen Anderson says:

      I’m so sorry for all pain you have endured and not being validated by family is even more devastating. I’m so glad you were guided to me and I know your angel, Barley had a paw in it! It is my pleasure and honor to walk this path with you, Alicia. You are on your way to healing with Barley right by your side. Thank you so much for your generous donation to Painted Rain Ranch! We are so grateful to you.

  4. Diane K. says:

    I’ve been blinded by my grief until I read your books. What I thought was my imagination was really my sweet girl, Tika sending me signs. Karen, you’ve been right here for me through the most painful experience in my life and I am forever grateful to you. Without you I never would have known that my sweet girl was okay and always near. Bless you!

    • Karen Anderson says:

      It has been a very rough journey for you Diane, and I am so glad you were guided to me. Tika will always be connected to you as the bonds of love never die. Keep asking for signs and I’m sure she will keep sending them! Sending love and healing…

  5. Carrie Purcell says:

    I’ve had many signs over the last year and a half, but one time, about 3 months after my Lexi passed, I got a definite clear sign she was here. I had been crying because I was missing her, and after I had my cry, I was sweeping my kitchen floor. My boyfriend came on from outside and asked, “have you been crying?” I guess my eyes were puffy and red… I said, ” I still cry every day because I miss Lexi.” He said, “I know you do.” So, I continued to sweep the floor and, it’s like it just appeared out of nowhere….a pure white fluffy feather was just there, on my floor! Instantly, I just knew it was Lexi sending me a sign that she’s with me always.
    Lexi was a herding dog, a border collie. She needed a job. I didnt live on a farm with sheep and cattle. So, the ball was her job. She lived and breathed for the ball, and if you played ball with her, she loved you for life! One night, probably 4 months after her passing, I was sitting on my patio in the dark reading my Kindle. Out of the blue, I felt a soft bump against my foot. Lexi used to toss her ball acrossed the patio to me to throw for her, so when I felt the bump on my foot, I instantly assumed it was Lexi’s ball, even though she was no longer here, it was an instant reaction after so many years of her dropping her ball at my feet. Of course, as soon as i think it’s the ball, I realize, it can’t be…. But I look down and it’s not a ball, it’s a toad! Lexi knew I would react this way and I’m certain it was her! I miss her so much, and live for her visits!!

    • Karen Anderson says:

      I am so sorry for the pain you have endured from the loss of your angel, Lexi. I wish I could take it all away from you. I think that is also what Lexi is doing…she is trying to take that pain away from you by sending you those amazing signs. The feather…wow….you don’t have birds in the house, right? That is so cool! The toad! OMG! What a wonderful surprise and so creative! Thank you for sharing this with us! Oh, Lexi, thank you for letting your mom know you are right by her side. She loves you and misses you so much. Sending love and healing…

  6. Lesley says:

    Today is the third anniversary of my beautiful Apolo leaving us. He was a magnificent collie and so very special. I know he is with the other that have passed before and after him. I often find feathers or see butterflies outside. I know those are signs from my special angels. My heart aches for them; sometimes so much so I am surprised it doesn’t just burst in my chest. Your books have been a tremendous help to me. It is so precious to know they never leave us and will always be with us no matter what. ♥️

    • Karen Anderson says:

      I am so sorry for the loss of your angel, Apolo. I don’t believe in coincidence so here is yet another sign that he knows you are thinking about him. How wonderful he is sending you feathers and butterflies! They will get very creative to let you know they are near so keep watching, keep asking for more, and keep talking out loud about them. I’m so glad you were guided to my books and it warms my heart to know I have been a positive part of your healing journey. Sending love and healing…

  7. Jen says:

    It’s been almost 11 months since my darling Joey died suddenly of cancer. I still cry every day and lately the grief seems to be worse. He was only nine and when I rescued him at age two he was so sick with an ear infection that took weeks to clear up and he also had giardia. He was angry for the first few months but once he felt better he became such an amazing snuggle bug. He always wanted to be picked up and rubbed his head against mine constantly. He could never have enough belly rubs. He looked at me like I was his whole world. He was always so full of life and unbelievably happy. He won over my other three cats with his insistance that they love him. I think his joy for life and his young age are making it so hard to accept he’s gone. I still think I’ll find him again. I still look out my bedroom window at the spot where I first saw him roaming around. A few weeks after he died I looked out and there was a perfect heart melted down to the grass in the snow. I know he sent me that sign and I snapped a picture to remind me. Two days after he died I heard his distinct meow and thought for sure he was there. Twice I’ve been preparing food at the kitchen counter and reached down to pat one of my cats when I felt fur brush against my bare leg but no one was there. I know it was Joey. Shortly after he died I saw him out of the corner of my eye running down the stairs. These signs all provide comfort, but I wish more than anything to have him back. Thank you Karen for sending your email. I was feeling so down the past few days and was thinking I could really use one of your lovely messages. You always come through.

    • Karen Anderson says:

      My heart breaks for you Jen and I am so very sorry for the pain you are enduring. I would love to see that photo of the heart…if you want to send it to me How special that your angel is letting you know he is near! I get those same brush by feelings and when you look nothing is there. It is truly remarkable if you think about how hard they must be trying to let us know they are right there. Please keep thanking Joey for the signs, keep asking for more, and keep being excited when you get them. He will love that! Thank you for sharing with us and for your kind words aout my email. It is an honor to be a positive part of your healing journey. Sending love and healing….

  8. Laura Handke says:

    The evening after our beloved cat, Lady Jane, passed away I felt her spirit jump on the bed. The mattress moved. She helped us find the next right cat.

    • Karen Anderson says:

      I am so sorry for the loss of your Lady Jane. What a beautiful experience to have her spirit jump on the bed! It is a surreal feeling. Thank you for sharing. Sending love and healing

  9. Carrie Purcell says:

    Nope, no birds in the house, and at this time, I wasnt even getting birds in the yard much because I didn’t start feeding them until this spring/summer. It is her. I just know it. Another sign was when I was walking in our remote rural park in late January of this year. We had just had a damp snow event and all of the trees were coated white with snow, like a winter wonderland, it was beautiful. I was missing Lexi so much, and as I walked, I said out loud: Lexi, if you’re here, I want to see a bright red cardinal amongst all this white beauty. I really didn’t think it would happen, but it did!. I walked about 10 to 15 feet after I asked for the cardinal, and believe it or not, it just was there…. On a bare tree branch, all by itself. No other birds or cardinals around. I couldn’t believe my eyes! I laughed and cried and had a rush of love in my heart ❤. The immense beauty of the white coated trees, nothing but white everywhere, except this brilliant red bird to add the most divine splash of vibrancy to the canvas of a cold and still winter day😇 I will never ever forget that moment. Its truly amazing what our beloved pets can do from the other side!

    • Karen Anderson says:

      Wow, that is so amazing! A red cardinal is one of THE most well-known and powerful messengers of spirit. Truly incredible! I can picture how stunning that must have been. The bright red against the white landscape. Thank you so much for sharing!

  10. Diane Douglas says:

    Hi Karen! Tomorrow is 9/11 and it’s the 3rd anniversary of my baby girl Gracie’s passing. I wasn’t sure how I’d get through it… and then I just saw this email from you in my inbox and I think it was perfect timing of Gracie’s to put it there! Lol! Whenever I feel especially sad from missing her, I just remember the readings I’ve had with you and all the things Gracie told you… things that could only have come from her… bringing up both past and present family members and even how my house is decorated! Your readings and your books have really helped me get through my little soulmate’s passing. Now that I think about it, someone on Facebook posted a short video just yesterday or the day before of a dog running and it said that that was one’s dog running to greet us from the Rainbow Bridge. That must have been Gracie sending that. I didn’t know they had Facebook over the Rainbow Bridge! 🤣🐾❤️

    • Karen Anderson says:

      I am so sorry for your loss, Diane. It must be hard to think of 3 years going by and missing your angel, Gracie. I don’t believe in coincidences so this would be a BIG SIGN from your girl! Spirit will do whatever it needs to get our attention and to let us know they are here and still with us. Gracie was so clear with those messages it was truly an amazing moment, wasn’t it? I have no doubt she has her paw in all these signs for you. Those bonds of love will never die they will only grow stronger and stronger as time goes by. Thank you for this beautiful memory and I will always remember those messages with love in my heart and a smile on my face. Sending love and healing…

  11. Christina Lewis says:

    Sally is the love of my life and she passed about 10 months ago. Losing her has created a chasm of grief in my heart, but I’m so thankful for Karen’s books. They helped me see the signals Sally was clearly sending me – like the magnificent sunset clouds in the shape of a dog a few days after she passed. Or the inexplicable toppling of the baby gate at the foot of our stairs when no one was around and I was in our room upstairs — thats the same path she used to trudge up, even in her old age, to cuddle in bed with me. She has visited me often in my dreams too — Karen helped me understand that heaven is just mere inches away and that as such, my sweetheart Sally is still very much with me.

    • Karen Anderson says:

      I am so sorry for the loss of your angel, Sally. It is devastating to lose someone you love so much. They change us in so many ways and we will always be grateful for the time we shared with them. I’m so glad my books have helped you on your journey through this difficult time. It warms my heart to know that I have been a positive part of your healing. I love the baby gate incident! No doubt that was her! Keep asking her for signs, get excited when you get them, and say her name out loud. She will love that. Sending love and healing…

  12. Karen Claire Allen says:

    I have had numerous signs from Benny I have felt him brush past my legs once or twice I have had a burning in my chest when connecting with him. I have seen a sign in his left ear on a canvas picture i have of him the sign is his face that blew my mind. I have seen Benny’s spirit in the form of very fine like dusty glittery particles and I have even had the smell of his fsvourite sausages whilst no-one in the house was cooking. I will love Benny forevermore and I still cry now every day his physical loss has seriously broken my heart and i will never accept his passing into the afterlife without me! We should have gone together BUT I will forever be grateful to Benny for showing me the ability to communicate with him and carry on a relationship with him just not physical but spiritual. I miss Benny more and more as each day passes and seriously look forward to the day when we are re-united in the afterlife. He is my spiritual guide when I communicate with other animals in spirit he brings their energy forward to me. He also directed me to Karen which i will always be thankful for she has taught me so much and is a true genuine person with a huge caring heart. Thanks for helping me.

    • Karen Anderson says:

      Your Benny is doing such an amazing job of letting you know he is with you! The grief will come in waves and sometimes the slightest thing will set us into tears. That is okay and it is perfectly normal to have moments like that. I have no doubt that he guided you to me as he knew that you and I would connect and there would be healing for you. I am constantly blown away by your boy and all the signs he sends you. He is truly your guardian angel watching over you with love in his heart. Sending love and healing…

  13. Nelson says:

    Today must be a day of signs for me. Your message came at a time where a lot of coincidences have been happening. I know that there is no such thing as coincidence. A book I reserved a while back on my library’s app became available to borrow. It is Signs by psychic Laura Lynne Jackson. She states in the book that the book came to me at no mere coincidence. It is just like the way I came upon your book, The Amazing Afterlife of Animals. I believe, like that book, I was guided to this other book by Charlie, my beloved who passed away on Mother’s Day. In the story I ready tonight, the first story in the book, it is the true story of a boy who died at 6 1/2 years old. His name was Caleb (right away I knew that Caleb comes from the word “dog” in Hebrew so something was stirring in my soul). The mother mentioned that his eyes were showing that he was going. That brought me back to how I saw my Charlie’s eyes glazing over as he was dying. He was actually out of his body at that point, I felt. His heart was beating faintly. Caleb told the psychic to give her mother a bracelet with the inscription, “I carry your heart with me.” This was from a poem that was given to the mother after the boy passed away. It is by E. E. Cummings:
    [i carry your heart with me(i carry it in]
    i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
    my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
    i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
    by only me is your doing,my darling)
    i fear
    no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
    no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
    and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
    and whatever a sun will always sing is you
    here is the deepest secret nobody knows
    (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
    and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
    higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
    and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
    i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
    I recall one week before Charlie died that he placed his paw on my chest, on my heart, and gazed into my eyes as if to tell me something. I could not understand this gesture as he had never done this ever before. Now I know what he was trying to tell me. That he would carry my heart in his heart. I got my answer to my question that I had posed to Charlie earlier today. My question was, “Was there a significance as to why you passed on to the Other Side on Mother’s Day?” Further, he had left a ring and what was the significance of that if this was connected? There was a ring by the kennel I had used to transport him in my friend’s car to the vet hospital as he was having one of his seizures. I had asked my friend if that ring was his and he said it wasn’t. No one at the hospital could have left it behind as I carried the kennel out of the car for the hospital staff to take him in. He couldn’t be pulled out of the kennel due to his condition. Like the boy who sent a bracelet to his mother, Charlie left me a ring to signify his love for me and to thank me for all the love and care I gave him. And to tell me that he carries my heart in his heart.
    Also recently, the surveillance camera in my room caught images of orbs and ghostly mists as I left Charlie’s urn in my room instead of placing it in my housemate’s room (I wanted my housemate to keep him company). I usually did this before going out in the evening to run errands and spend time with a friend (a break from caregiving of my parents). A couple days later I found myself awake around 3 am and thinking about the images which were captured in the late night and wee hours of the morning of 4 am. So I asked Charlie if he was there and if so, to give me a sign by beeping the bluetooth phone. One or two minutes later the phone beeped twice. I was shocked and unbelieving at first but I could not deny what happened. A couple days later I found myself awake again in the wee hours of the morning and asked him to do it again. And again, in one or two minutes the bluetooth phone started to beep non-stop. I had to get out of bed to re-seat the phone on its base charger. I thanked him profusely and then went to the bathroom. While in the bathroom it began beeping non-stop again! I quickly ran to my room to keep from waking up everyone nearby as it was a silent evening and that can wake people up. Again, I thanked Charlie for his sign. I knew for sure then that it was no mere coincidence that the phone beeped when I asked Charlie to beep it.
    Yes, today has been a day of signs for me. Thank you Karen, for helping me to deal with my grief of the loss of my beloved companion who I consider to be my son. When you lose a dog, yes, it can be the most painful thing to deal with. I wanted to die. But I received a sign that that was a no-no to God. But your encouraging words in your book The Amazing Afterlife of Animals speaks volumes that our beloved companions do not leave us. They are but a thought away. It has become clear to me that they can hear us. And they can feel our love and feel our heart in theirs.
    God bless

    • Karen Anderson says:

      I am so sorry for the loss of your angel, Charlie. There is clearly a very strong bond that ties you together. He is constantly showing you he is near and leaves you so many signs. You are a very lucky lady as not all pets will do that so enjoy each moment! The ring, the beeping, the orbs, wow! Thank you for the kind words about my book and may each chapter bring healing to your broken heart. I’m sure Charlie guided you my way. He knew he could help you heal and find your smile again. Sending love and healing…

  14. Melanie says:

    Some time ago I missed a finger ring. I was convinced I lost it somewhere and put up with it. Some weeks later something made me sad so that I sat crying on my couch. Behind my couch, on a shelf I keep the funeral urns with the ashes of my two beloved cats (mother and daughter) and a framed paw print of Lili, the mother (she was my special soul cat). When I dusted the urns off the next day, I found this “lost” finger ring lying in front of the urns on the shelf! I am absolutely convinced I never put it there myself and my Lili tried to send me a message that she is still around me and was trying to comfort me. After she had left her physical body, I looked for any books that might help me to get on well with it and I found your books. I am sure there is no coincidence that I found just these books and I am grateful there is someone who understands my loss and shows me our pets are and will always be with us.

    • Karen Anderson says:

      I am so sorry for your losses, Melanie. Losing one is devastating so I cannot imagine the pain from losing both of your angels. The tears just come sometimes. For no reason or for all reasons. But that’s okay. I love your ring story! That is one of those unbelievable, remarkable, unforgettable moments that if it had not happened to you it would be hard to accept as real! This is such a huge sign from your angel girls. I have no doubt that they both had a paw in this! I’m honored to be a part of your journey and I thank you for your kindness about my books. I will hold a sacred space in my heart for you and your girls. Sending love and healing…

  15. William Pennington says:

    Last year I lost the best friend I ever had. My dog, Winston.
    He was a mutt but he was the most amazing boy. He could literally read my mind and he was my constant companion. I thought I would never get through the pain after losing him to cancer. It was so fast I feel like I didn’t get to tell him how much I love him, how special he was, let alone to say goodbye properly.
    He got so sick so fast it was a whirlwind and then he was gone. The house has been so empty and I haven’t gone anywhere or done anything because I’m so sad all the time. It was only after I read your books that I realized I can tell him how I feel right now. I had a long talk with Winston and told him exactly how I felt.
    The very next day I woke up and I heard his name mentioned three times on TV. It is not a common name so it got my attention. I asked, “Is that you, Winston?” and I felt a warmth around me. A couple of days later I decided to visit the local shelter. I was immediately drawn to an older dog who looked so sad. I felt like we connected and I decided to adopt him. When I got home, Winston’s leash was lying on the floor next to the front door. I did not put it there. It was on a hook in the other room.
    I took that as a sign from Winston that he approved of my new dog, Roger. Without you and your books I would never have noticed these signs or paid attention. I would have missed my boy letting me know he is still with me so I am forever grateful to you.
    I Thank God every day that I found you Karen.
    Your books have saved me.
    Roger and I thank you for the new life we have together.

    • Karen Anderson says:

      I am so sorry for the loss of your boy, Winston. It is so hard to lose someone you love so much and it sounds like you two were together all the time. It warms my heart to hear how my books opened you up to learn about the signs and messages they send us. To be a part of your journey is such an honor. You can tell him exactly how you feel right now and it will be just as if you were together again. Time is not present on the Other Side. I am thrilled to hear that you now have Roger. You two will be so good for each other and I’m sure your boy, Winston had a paw in setting this meeting up! Blessings to you sweet William for your kindness, for adopting an older dog who just needs someone to love him. You are the real angel and I am so very happy for you. Sending love and healing…

  16. Morgan Griffith says:

    My Great Dane,Stella passed and for the next two weeks a song about angels came on the radio every time I started my car. If I changed stations the song was on the next 3 stations. I went to walk out to my and there Stella was standing there as solid as could be. I even said “excuse me Stella, I need to get by”. No sooner did I walk by her then I remembered she wasn’t with me in flesh anymore. I turned around and there was just a empty space where Stella had been.
    I had a crazy GSD/Poodle. Crazy and as fun as a dog could get. Spirit thought it was much more funner to jump out the window than go out the wide open door. He was my heart dog. I lost him to a brain tumor. The next dog I got was a blind Chow mix. Door was wide open when I walked into the living room just n time to see him jump out the window. Later when he wanted back in, yep, he jumped back in through the window.

    • Karen Anderson says:

      I am so sorry for the loss of your angel dogs. You must miss them so much. It sounds like they are really good at sending you signs! How wonderful for you! Seeing them is really a treat and it is usually very fast or fleeting images. Thank you for sharing your stories with us. It must feel so good to know they are still with you. Sending love and healing…

  17. Donna Hudson says:

    My sweet boy Kitty crossed over on April 11th, 2021. I adopted him when he was 5 years old. The previous owners had to give him away,because every time Kitty came into the house, the Dad’s throat would close up. They found this odd, because they had found Kitty in a ditch when he was just a kitten.
    The cat became thier son’s, Brandon’s. Brandon was born with Mosaic Trisomy 18. He struggled a lot to learn how to do certain tasks. Most Mosaic Trisomy 18 children don’t live a long life.
    I met Brandon when he was 15 years old. He was heartbroken about having to give his cat away. I reassured him that Kitty would always be his cat, I was just taking care of him.
    So we made a deal, Brandon and his Mom, Gloria would come to cut Kitty’s nails.
    They would come every 5 or 6 months.
    Kitty was diagnosed with a tumor surrounding his bladder at the end of January, 2021. The Vet gave me medication and told me, it might keep him alive for another couple of weeks.
    Kitty proved them wrong, and lasted until April 11th.
    I was so sad that Kitty was going to cross over, I had had him for 8 years. It had taken him a long time to trust me. We grew close over the years. He was my best friend and reason for living.
    I held him in my arms as he crossed over. I cried so hard, I didn’t think I would ever stop.
    The next day,at 5AM, my buzzer rang. I thought, what the hell, and then I said Kitty. Hi Kitty, you’re here waking me up to eat and get brushed. Kitty loved to get brushed, he would answer me back, when I asked him if he wanted to get brushed.
    I miss Kitty every day, and have days when I cry, but I know I will see him again.

    • Karen Anderson says:

      I am so sorry for the loss of your angel, Kitty. It is so hard to lose someone you love so much. How remarkable that your alarm went off at just the right time! Our departed loves ones can easily manipulate electronic equipment as they are pure energy. How wonderful for you to know Kitty is still with you. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Dear Karen,
    We had an experience when one night when we were getting ready for bed and had just turned the lights off, we heard scratching on the carpet on the floor of our bedroom! This is what our Beloved Sweet Pea would do frequently when she would get ready to lay down and go to bed. Sweet Pea would scratch on the carpet and walk around a few times before settling down and getting herself comfortable and go to sleep. It was incredible!! Both my husband and I heard this and we could not believe our ears!! This was one of the best signs we could have received from Sweet Pea and we know how much energy it must have taken for her to do this. I will never forget about this experience and I know in my heart she is always with me and can hear me speak to her. Today actually, marks 23 months since Sweet Pea passed away and I can’t believe next month (October 11th) will mark 2-years of her passing away. It still feels just like yesterday and I Love and Miss Sweet Pea with all my heart and soul. XOXOXO

      I am so sorry for the loss of your angel, Sweet Pea…It must be so difficult for you. It is truly amazing that you heard the scratching in the carpet! Audible messages are rare and how lucky you are to have both heard it! It is one of those moments when you look at each other and say, “Did you hear that?”….how wonderful for you. Your sweet angel is still with you in spirit. Sending big hugs and healing…

    I feel my heavenly cats walking around on my bed all the time. It’s so real and distinct I look to see if it’s the cat I have now but she’s fast asleep in her spot in the closet. I wonder if she’s aware of them visiting. I always talk to them when this happens. I had a single cat the first time. After she passed I got 4 of them. I believe it’s one or all of the 4 so I use all of their names. I wish I knew for sure though. Thank you Karen. Your work is so valuable!

    • Karen Anderson says:

      Thank you for your kind words….Isn’t it wonderful when that happens? It is such a heartwarming and exciting moment when something like that happens. It happens to me quite often. I’ll look and no one is there! So wonderful for you Marilyn! Thank you for sharing…Sending love and healing.

    I still hear my parrot Kiki making her noises or moving around in her cage. I can’t get rid of her cage. I miss her presence so badly.

    • Karen Anderson says:

      I am so sorry you are hurting so badly for Kiki. I always keep my beloved pet’s belongings…can’t seem to part with them either. It is bittersweet to see those things…We love them so much. Sending you love and healing…

    My adopted cat and myself were homeless for 6 months after my mother left us and now we have a new home and I set up my Angel Cat Grazee’s Memorial and I have 4 electronic candles 🕯 I light every night and sing our song. I was worried that she didn’t come with us to our new home because I hadn’t seen any signs she used to give me. After about 2 months I was crying and asking her to please give me a sign and a big one so I would know it was her. I went into the rest room and when I came back into the bedroom her electric candles were all on! Thank you My One And Only Angel Cat Grazee for always answering me.

    • Karen Anderson says:

      I am so sorry for your loss…and all the hardships you have endured. I cannot imagine how difficult that must be. What a beautiful story about the candles! I love this! Thank you for sharing….sending big hugs and healing…

    Dear Karen:
    Thank you so much for your response back to me, regarding our Beloved Sweet Pea! Yes!!! We were so fortunate to have received this “Audible” message from her! We know it must have taken a lot of energy from her and we were so grateful for receiving it from her. It was very special and we were lucky to both hear it!!
    Thank you so much for all the information you provide in your books, website and App; it is so helpful and comforting and reassuring to those of us who have lost a pet and are still heart-broken and grieving for them.

    • Karen Anderson says:

      You are so welcome! I’m honored to be a part of your healing journey. Thank you again for sharing this magical moment…sending love

    HI Karen:
    I have communicated with you before after my little Yorkie, Luci, passed on August 9th. Everything still reminds me of her all the time. I still cannot go for a walk without her. I spoke to Melinda, who I saw on one of your videos, and she said Luci is always beside me, but I don’t feel it and I think I would feel better if I did see signs from her. I talk to Luci all the time and Melinda said she really, really loved me which I knew. I guess I should talk to Melinda again. I am toying about getting a little cavapoo, but I don’t know if I am ready.

    • Karen Anderson says:

      I am so sorry that you are in so much pain. It is the hardest thing to lose a friend and lifelong companion like Luci. It is normal for everything to remind you of her and to feel despondent when you aren’t receiving signs. Chances are good that your grief is clouding them and making it harder to sense she is near. Trust she is with you as there is nowhere else she would rather be. Getting a clear and precise message from her would be wonderful and I recommend reaching out to several different communicators as each has a unique style. Your Luci will benefit from the love that you share with any new puppy so don’t worry about that. When your heart is happy she can sense that happiness. It is best to be patient with your grief and to truly connect with your feelings of loss. Finding your way may be difficult at times and my heart goes out to you. My next book is about this very topic so be sure to get a copy when it comes out…hopefully soon…sending love and healing…

    My dog passed away on 24 Sept this year. I miss her so much. I was devastated that on her last day Mia deteriorated quickly. Pet loss has hit me hard. I am a qualified nurse working in a COVID ward and have seen human death during the pandemic. My dog was my salvation who helped me relax when I got home. I miss her badly.

  25. Diane says:

    Thank you Karen for your reply. I am struggling with grief presently since my dog Mia passed away in September. I find it extremely difficult to express my emotions to my family of the daily struggle i have. I keep my emotions hidden. Baggage I have carried from childhood. i feel extremely guilty at the difficult decision I had to make to euthanise Mia. Mia was a lovely staffordshire terrier who had come into our home from a dog rescue centre at 1 yr old. She was a beautiful dog inside and out. She was coming up to her 13 yr and i was now living on my own. as my 3 children had left home. I had noticed over the summer months that Mia was having good days and bad days. This came to a head on 24 Sept. It had started off as a normal day and by 5pm that night after she appeared to have had a stroke and could not support her body on the right side i was at the vet surgery and Mia was put to sleep at 7pm. I held her in my arms as the injection was administered and she passed away. I was so shocked that I had remained so calm throughout My pain and guilt started as soon as I got home that night. I kept reliving her final day and of the signs I missed to get Mia help before she had her crisis moment and deteriorated so rapidly. The house seemed so quiet and empty without her. Every day since has been so challenging without her by my side. She was my shadow we did so much together. In the day that followed her passing I was drawn to You Tube and your web pages on animal afterlife. Your discussions on afterlife have been so helpful and informative. It gives me comfort that Mia is still around me. I feel her presence. I’m sure she jumped on my bed where she used to sleep at the bottom. She has given me her name 3 times on the same day from tv programmes and the internet. I get goosebumps when I’m not cold. I thank you Karen for enlightening me in the signs to look for when Mia is visiting. During this dark chapter you have given me light and hope. God blessx

    • Karen Anderson says:

      Diane, you are so welcome here to share your thoughts, feelings, and grief. There are few who truly understand what happens to us when we suffer the loss of someone we love so deeply.
      You and Mia shared a beautiful life together and I promise you that is the only thing she resonates with.
      We are so hard on ourselves, me included when we have to help them leave a failing body.
      Trust your angel is with you even as we speak. Trust that she is sending you signs, such as her name, goosebumps, etc.
      She is doing her best as a spiritual being to let you know she is always near.
      Give her plenty of spiritual fuel and remember to top off her tank by filling her heart and soul with love, love and more love.
      I like to add a few extra power boosters in their favorite spots such as quartz crystals, sacred amulets and gem stones, and even a pack of batteries. Then tell her to use the energy in those items to send more signs.
      Your job is to pay attention and never discount any sign you receive.
      I’m always here if you need more loving support. Sending healing your way…

    My 16 year old Maine Coon mix kitty Smitten sadly passed on 10/30/2021. He was my #1 in life. Such a unique goofy cat. I have 2 dogs and 2 other cats but Smitten was super attached to me compared to my other fur babies. We had a bond like none other. He was fine up until the week he passed. Even then he wasn’t that sick until the day before. It all happened so fast. I’ve been a wreck since but slowly trying not to focus on the shock that he’s gone. I arranged to receive his remains this week and I’ve been looking into ordering some garden decor to make a memorial for him in our yard. After spending a few days searching online I decided on making a rainbow bridge theme memorial. I was narrowing down the items I wanted to purchase and needed to grab my credit card in another room to make the purchases. When I walked into the other room there was a bright rainbow reflection from the sun beaming on the floor. I’ve never seen a rainbow reflection in my home until today! And 5 minutes later it was gone! I defiantly believe it was Smitten showing me a sign he’s still with me in spirit. I took a photo of it because I thought it was just so special. Since he passed I’ve also felt his presence on my pillow where he used to sleep on a couple of nights and felt him bump up against my legs in the same spot he would always beg for treats. It felt so real. In a way it made me feel a bit more at ease as if he’s telling me he’s ok.

    • Karen Anderson says:

      I am so sorry for the loss of your angel, Smitten. Sixteen years is a lifetime of love and memories. I love your story and would also really like to see the photo if you want to email it to me. Just click the CONTACT KAREN tab on my site and let’s connect. This is truly amazing and may you continue to receive beautiful signs from Smitten. My book has many stories of signs and messages too so I hope you have a copy of The Amazing Afterlife of Animals. Sending you love and healing
