Joint Custody...What happens when it’s over?

Joint Custody...What happens when it’s over?

September 10th, 2014

As some of you may know, I’ve had joint custody of Nero with his dad now for 2 years. Initially there was an adjustment for all of us but once the routine was set, it was all roses. Nero had two homes and twice the individual attention. You could say he had the best of both worlds or did he really? Usually Nero had about two weeks at one home and then the other. Everything was smooth sailing. He had made new friends at my place and one has turned out to be his girlfriend. Sophie is a pretty little thing and very precocious (I might add slightly high maintenance but that’s no reflection on Nero’s conditioning – meaning me! Lol). His other friend is a very cool dude, a cat named Vinnie. He often goes to Vinnie’s home to play...Read more

Why use an Animal Communicator

Why use an Animal Communicator

September 4th, 2014

 Animal Communication Fancy a chat with your pet? – then I may be of assistance. There are many reasons to use to the services of an Animal Communicator and let me share with you just a few: Moving home Changing homes can be stressful for any person. Packing boxes, deciding what you’re taking and what you’re letting go  of can take its toll on you. For some, it can be quite emotional as your base is being disassembled only to have to reassemble somewhere new. Knowing how stressful it can be to move, have you thought of how it affects the animals in the home? They can sense their owner’s state becoming more chaotic with bursts of energy firing off here and there. Then, they’re seeing their stability being packed away into boxes – yep you got it, a stressful time for all. Now imagine...Read more

To Paws On or Off the bed

To Paws On or Off the bed

July 24th, 2014

The great debate – Paws on or off the bed. Every household has their own rules about what suits them and what doesn’t. The question that I get asked a lot is ‘Where is the right place for their pets to sleep in?’ I’m biased of course, as I love it when my kitty kat Nero sleeps on my bed, I even take him to bed with me. I love it when he purrs and starts his paw padding while finding his spot. I even love it when he does this on my chest – I call it the ‘love claw’. When Nero does his love claw thing, he looks into my eyes and I can really feel how content he is. It makes my lil heart smile ;) As most of you know I have my slippery snake Pi and would love...Read more

Does your pet think they’re human?

Does your pet think they’re human?

May 11th, 2014

Now that I have joint custody of my cat Nero, he tends to think he is the centre of my world when he’s with me – well if he understood the concept of a universe, Nero would expand to that way of thinking. Between him and my snake Pi, Nero takes 1st position (as he likes to tell me). I often wake up to a meow in my ear and a gentle tap of his paw on my nose to see if I’m awake. Sometimes I pretend I’m asleep just to get a few extra zzz’s, but then a tiny little claw will appear and will gently tap me on my nose. He then jumps off hastily because by this stage I’ve reacted and he knows that I’m WIDE AWAKE and not all that impressed. This is my alarm clock when Nero’s...Read more

Hello Everyone! Thank you for all your participation regarding your animal babies.

Below are your answers with names 1.Raymond Roche Birtha 7 Female Goldfish Maybe you can answer our ongoing question. From the first day we got Birtha 7 yrs ago as a tiny sprat she was and still is the most spritely and interactive fish we have ever had, now she is the biggest at 20cms/300g and oldest of about 30. As soon as we enter the room she always gets very excited wriggling about like mad with lots of fin flapping fluttering and open mouth gestures and does not take...Read more
