I feel so lucky to have found Thom and gotten his guidance with my animals he opened up a whole new world for me in how I relate to all 3 of my animals, and has especially made a huge difference with my one rescue cat who has major trust issues. Every time Thom works with one of my animals I learn something new, and it continues to deepen my relationships with them.
I first contacted Thom a couple of months ago after researching animal communicators on the internet. My cat, Cluny, had been with me for about 4 and a half years. A local rescue group found him outside, probably at about 5 months of age he probably had always lived outside; adjusting to life inside my house was a struggle for him. Cluny would hover around where I, or the other animals were he had no problem with contact with the other animals, but, if I approached him, he would run. And then he would come back and hover again. I didn't t know what to do because I felt like he wanted to be part of things, but was, at the same time, afraid to. Grooming him (he s long-haired) or going to the vet were always problems since catching him was pretty much traumatic for both of us! When I brought him home, I had my dog, Shana (female); after a year, I got my second cat, Valentino, in hopes that a very sociable, people-oriented cat (which he is) might help Cluny's trust issues. Unfortunately, we did not make great strides.
What caused me to contact Thom was that Cluny went through some behavior changes that said to me that he was clearly having medical issues. He was not eating and he had reverted to really hiding not just running way, really hiding, to where I often had no idea where he was. I was frantic with worry that I would lose him simply because I would not be able to get him basic medical attention. I had heard about animal communication but never had any personal experience. I was just hoping that someone could talk to Cluny and get him to let me help him.
From the moment I first spoke to Thom on the phone, I was comforted. His kindness, his gentleness basically, his heart comes across immediately. I knew if I felt it, so would Cluny. We had a long conversation, that first day Thom spoke to Cluny, asked my questions, got his responses, then relayed Cluny's comments back to me, and then we asked more questions based on that. We spoke about where he came from, why he is scared, does he know I love him (yes! Which meant a lot to hear), is he ok with the other animals in the house, how does he feel, and can he please let me take care of him so he can feel better.
Thom explained to him what needed to happen for us to go to the vet, how he needed to get into the carrier, and how I would be there the whole time and would be there to take him home. We finished with him giving Cluny a Reiki session. Oh, and we talked about me, too!...how responsive Cluny was to my anxiety, and how if I wanted to help him achieve more calm, I needed to really be offering that myself. Honestly, I hadn't thought about that, but as soon as Thom spoke about it, I knew it was true again, not only for Cluny, but really for all my animals.
Ultimately, I saw Cluny walk himself into the carrier and sit down facing me without me even closing the door and just wait for me to take him to the doctor. That was huge for him I could see in his eyes that he understood that I was going to help him; in the vet s office, he just buried his face into me and allowed her to examine him fully and even took 2 injections quietly. When we got home that night, he stayed in my arms all night, which was very special.
From the moment I subsequently asked Thom to speak to Valentino and Shana. Shana asked him to ask me to give her more responsibility, which I now do as the big sister to the other two; Valentino is a crazy little boy, and Thom talked to him about some of his bad kitty behaviors, which we found out are largely for attention's sake. So I'm trying to work with him to come up with better ways of getting attention. And, in a subsequently conversation, Cluny talked to Thom about his relationship with me, and needing some quiet time with me, without the other 2. At Thom's suggestion, we came up with a safe place in the house one of the bedrooms where, I now know, if Cluny goes there, he needs some one-on-one time. He goes to one spot where I can always find him I close the door and the 2 of us just hang out, with him in my lap, until he gets up to go, at which point, I know we're done for that session. But there's a new bond of communication between us that is really wonderful to experience. In between actual sessions, Thom has always been available in email if I have questions and to give feedback as I have given him updates. He recommended a PTSD formula for Cluny in the first session, and followed up with an email to make sure I knew where to get it.
