Almost everyone loves animals - I know I do! The house just isn't a complete home without a pet or two to snuggle up to. Not only do pets make awesome companions, they are also pretty good ghost detectors. Pets can see and hear on an entirely different level than people can. Not only that, but they are definitely psychically tuned into the spirit world. Many pet owners have been witness to their pets interacting with the spirit world. It is usually a pretty cool thing to witness, but sometimes it can be scary - for both the pet and the owner.
Many years ago, we used to have a hamster and we kept his home on top of my daughter's dresser. Our cat liked the hamster and would sit on top of his little home playing guard cat. One night when my two daughters and I were in the room with the hamster, the cat was just doing her thing on top of the hamster home. We noticed that she was batting her paw at something in the air. She became more and more active, swinging both of her paws and even standing on her hind legs trying to reach an invisible something above the hamster home. The cat's eyes were following something that kept moving around quickly. Then suddenly, she jumped off the hamster home and onto the floor where she kept chasing after something as if someone was moving a string in front of her, but nothing was there - or at least visible. My daughters and I didn't see anything - no insects - nothing. I ran to get my camcorder, which of course has IR (infrared) capabilities, and I started to film. All of us could see a round, white orb flying around my cat but I suppose this ghost was camera shy because we only saw it for about a minute or so before it stopped altogether. So many ghosts stop cooperating once the camera and recorders come out. It certainly was interesting and fun to watch. It also backs up the orb theory that spirits travel as orbs and can be filmed as such; however, any suspicious orb needs much more study to deem it as a DES - or a true orb.

I am pretty sure that the hamster home ghost was one of the younger ghosts we had in that house - which was a very active one. Several of our ghosts would periodically interact with our pets. I was usually the last person to go to bed in our home so right before I would head up to bed, i would bring our dog to my oldest daughter's room because she used to love sleeping in there. As I did every night, I opened her door, the dog ran in and I gave a quick heads up to my daughter so she knew that an eighty pound dog was about to jump on her, and then I closed the door. So nothing out of the usual - until the following day when my daughter told me what happened when I closed her door the night before.
She said that she never felt the dog jump onto her bed so she sat up to look for her and saw the dog sitting on the floor near the end of her bed looking upward. My daughter said that she thought it was unusual that I would go into her room, close the door and stand there petting the dog in the dark, so she reached over to get her glasses and saw that the female petting the dog was not me. She then saw the girl ghost turn her head to look at her. Once the ghost realized that my daughter could see her, a look of total surprise came over her face and it appeared as though she panicked as she also threw up her arms and quickly disappeared down into the floorboards. So the living scared the ghost away.
What really gets my goat about the entire animals being given the ability to see and hear spirit thing, is that they literally do not have to be psychic in order for that to occur; it is a natural born way of life for them. These animals are designed with super senses which is the key to psychic abilities. They can see into other spectrums of light which is what humans need our ghost cams for. Our pets can hear frequencies that we cannot. It is such a flat out kick in the ass that animals have built-in ghost detectors, yet they cannot speak to communicate to us all of the paranormal things that are going on all around us.
People can speak and usually communicate with each other quite well, but we lack the super senses that our pets have. It is like the creators were saying, "Hey, let's play a joke on the humans! All the paranormal will be right in front to their noses but they'll never know cuz Fido and Kitty can't tattle." It makes me suspicious that this was done on purpose. Even people with psychic abilities cannot perceive as much as our dear furry friends as we need to tune into energy and we do not have IR/UV eyes. (Infrared/Ultra Violet) and can hear frequencies that our ears will never have to capabilities to hear.
Of course ghosts and spirits can sure pick and choose who they want to show themselves off to. Five people can be standing in a room and looking at the center of the room where a ghost stands. Two of those people see the ghost and the other three do not - because the ghost chose who will see them, but you can bet good 'ol Fido and Kitty saw them before those two people did. Some people can naturally see ghosts but if that ghost chooses, they can allow you to see or not to see. Say three dogs and two cats were in the same room as those five people - all the dogs sensed the ghost. The two cats would have but they were sleeping - that is until the two people who saw the ghost screamed and the three dogs started barking and then the cats woke up, saw the ghost, ignored it, hissed at the dogs and ran out of the room to find a quiet place to nap.
A while back at my new house, I was working on a experimental EVP session. Only one person was home that night besides me. There was a noise coming from upstairs but no one was up there. I am used to that sort of thing as our resident ghost likes to say hi from time to time. The cats will make noises all the time upstairs but my dog knew it wasn't the cats as she pays no mind to them and their shenanigans. She went over to the steps and started barking. Just as she did that, I got a real-time EVP that said, "What did you hear?" The ghost was letting me know via EVP that my dog sensed their presence. You can listen to that EVP below.
Many years ago on a ghost investigation - we were at a private residence where the owner of the home was having ghost issues and most of the activity would take place in their master bedroom. They had a golden retriever and a grey tabby cat that loved to sleep with her and her husband. The homeowners were only in their new home for about four months when they noticed the activity and it was steadily increasing. It was becoming quite unnerving for them and that is when they called me to check things out. We had positive emf and temperature readings and most of them were in the master bedroom. After a couple of hours, we noticed that the dog was starting to run back and forth barking at something. The room was about eleven degrees cooler than before and then suddenly, the dog ran under the bed and stayed there whimpering. The cat hissed several times and ran out of the room. The homeowners told me that this was becoming normal behavior for their pets and that it concerned them because they were afraid that the ghost was not a very nice one. It turned out that the ghost did indeed begin to do more and more disturbing things and the animals refused to go into the master bedroom altogether. Even the homeowners slept in a different bedroom. It took quiet some time to have the angry ghost finally move on.
At another investigation, a little Shih Tzu followed us all around the house and literally acted as a ghost detector. He was apparently very friendly with this ghost and they played together quite often. It turns out that the ghost was a little girl that died on the grounds where the new house was built about 50 years prior. We paid a lot of attention to the dog as she helped us to get some pretty good evidence that night. The homeowner ended up being perfectly fine sharing the house with the benevolent little girl and their dog had a happy playmate.
A very amazing true story of a pet strongly sensing an invisible entity is a very touching one where my daughter Brielle's guinea pig died unexpectedly after several wonderful years with him. He suddenly started acting strangely. He became very talkative and moved about his cage a lot. He usually wasn't a very vocal little guy but on the last two days, before the actual day that he passed away, he was squeaking up a storm. My daughter, very concerned about him decided to leave a recorder in her room to see if he behaved that way even when she was not in there with him. He was still eating and drinking - just not quite as much, but that is something that he would do from time to time so she didn't suspect anything that serious. He sat comfortably with her most of the time like normal, but acted up when she would put him back in his home so she figured he just wanted more attention - which she gave him a lot of.
After about an hour of recording, she listened to it and then sent me two short clips of what she found on it. You could hear the guinea pig squeaking and the sound of another animal at the end of the clip. There were voices and whispers on the other clip but very hard to make out. I took the time to clean the clip up and discovered three EVPs on it. Mark passed away two days after the recording was made and it surprised all of us as he didn't act sick or even showed signs of being too old even though he six years old. Mark was apparently aware of entities that were around him. I believe his guardian entities took him home and Mark sensed them.
I posted a video that contains the original audio clip containing the EVPs that were captured in my daughter's room with Mark while he was in there alone. I also have the cleaned and enhanced EVPs on that video as well. I did two follow up EVP sessions and one ITC session to see if we could communicate with Mark or his guardian entities and we obtained some pretty amazing results.

Throughout the years, I have heard many people talk about how their pets see, hear and sense the invisible realms and I have also had my fair share of it as well. I do wonder though, why it is that ghost pictures of animals are much more rare than ghost pictures of people. Getting evidence of animal spirits are more difficult to do. I believe that perhaps it is because most pets and animals do not hang around on the Earth plane like many human spirits will. There have also been many encounters of animal ghosts that were killed by an accident or that were viciously slaughtered in a slaughter house. They are restless spirits and they are usually ones that can be more easy to find and document as they may not realize they have passed on or they may have an attachment - which is rare for an animal but not impossible. I do feel that the majority of our loving pets do not hang around the Earth plane as they do not have the kind of hang-ups that people do which will attach them to this plane, but that they come back purposely to say hi and send their love. I think that is the major reason why getting a lot of paranormal evidence on pets is much more difficult to do.
