You are not alone in this feeling. No need to try to explain the deep connection, I feel the exact same way...especially with cats (hence my moniker, lol). I have grown up with cats all of my life, they used to purr me to sleep as a young child. Animals have always been drawn to me..I love them all. They have such an unconditional love that feels so good...something most of the human race is lacking. I have had many cross over in my lifetime, of course, they have such short lives compared to ours :( I have had some visit me as well....some in dreams, some...physically? so to speak. My Whitey..he was a very special cat. I believe he was my soul mate from a previous lifetime. We were inseparable. Car rides, baths, etc. didn't matter, wherever I was...he was too. After his passing while in bed, I could still feel him come up and lay on my pillow where he would always sleep, right above my head....I still miss him after 11 years, but I know we will be reunited in the other side :)

I have a very deep connection with my pets as well. As a child I remember a family friend's cat was downright nasty. Stand-offish and a scratcher/biter. Everyone was afraid of her. Snowball. Its funny the things your remember. Anyhow, she would come up and sit in my lap every time. Everyone was astonished. I was too afraid of her to push her off. And so it began...my empathic relationship with animals.

Sometimes when I am going through these posts (I'm new) I wonder if I missed somewhere in the terms of service/rules and regulations here that you have to be a cat lover. There are so many "cat people" names and avatars that I get confused at times. Pot calling the kettle black though, since my "name" here is really my cat Nyla's.

I actually feel symbiotic with my pets (they've all been dogs). They heal me and vice versa. I've had encounters with pets (and other people's pets) who have passed. They have souls that are unlike ours - they're older, more pure, and beyond that I don't know much. They're sent to us and we're sent to them. I just adopted two puppies from the shelter. They picked me (jumped up against the cage eagerly, unlike all the other dogs there), so I took them home, and couldn't be happier. Well, it'll be nice when they're housetrained.

Oh my...my dogs, so much emotions. I love all animals but dogs, well, they have my heart. Going up, animals were all I had to turn to due to narcissist parents I can remember when I was about 6 or 7 , me laying my little body over my hound dog, Minnie, to keep my dad from beating her because she had killed a chicken. He was beating her and I threw myself on top of her to make him stop.I know you people are going to think this is strange but I mourn terribly when my dogs pass. More than I do the humans that have passed in my life. I know, I know that's crazy but I don't get close to humans except my children and grandchildren. I have people I love and cherish but it's harder to let my dogs go but not so much people. If I lost a child or grandchild , that would be a different story and I would never recover from that but my dogs are my children also.

Not strange Rene'.....I feel the same about my cats. It will be 11 years on the 24th that my Whitey has passed and I still miss him. I've always said I like cats more than most people....but I've learned not to share that sentiment with people, lol. They tend to judge for that ;)

And that judgement that is placed on us is why we love our animals so much. They love us no matter what.
