MS asks: “I’m seeing more and more advertisements for pet psychics at my vet’s office. Are these people for real?”
Pet psychics are just another example of the inroads the occult is making into our world.Pet psychics are the same as any other psychics except they claim that in addition to helping people, they are also able to communicate with animals (both alive and dead) and inform owners of what their pets are feeling.
I recently read an article appearing in the UK’s Daily Mail about a hairdresser/pet psychic named Mandy Carr, 39, who claims she can channel messages from dead pets, tell owners what their pets are “saying” and even diagnose illnesses in animals.
Carr, who was born deaf and wears two hearing aids, said she first discovered her gift at age 20 when she was cutting someone’s hair and heard an unusual voice begging for a treat.
“When I realised it was my client’s dog, it scared me half to death. I didn’t know if I was normal or mad,” she told the Mail. “I only have to look at a pet’s picture and I can feel their ailments and listen to whatever they choose to tell me – which often includes telling tales on their owners.”
In addition to contacting dead pets, she also claims to have diagnosed a kidney problem in a golden retriever named Nala that was the result of stress suffered after the dog’s owners broke up.
Later, when Nala died, Carr said she was able to connect with the animal on the “spirit plane” to tell the owners she was okay and to predict that they would soon have a new puppy.
Carr’s work is fairly typical of what I see on other pet psychic websites. For instance, a so-called acclaimed animal psychic and pet whisperer named Barbara Morrison says she has helped thousands of pet owners “gain a greater sense of understanding and appreciation for their pets.”
She explains: “Sometimes this work is called interspecies or animal telepathy but it is about counseling the owners and connecting with the spirit of the animal to express the issue at hand and to recommend solutions when it is appropriate.”
Regardless of how it is being presented, or for whom the service is being performed, reliance on psychic powers is always a grave offense against God.
” . . . (T)he phenomena of clairvoyance, and recourse to mediums all conceal a desire for power over time, history and, in the last analysis, other human beings, as well as a wish to conciliate hidden powers. They contradict the honor, respect and loving fear that we owe to God alone” [Catechims #2116].
I have been a pet owner for many years and whenever one of my animals was in some kind of special need, either emotional of physical, I have always resorted to God in prayer and was never disappointed.
For instance, last year on November 12, I was forced to put down my cat, Cassandra, who I had for 18 years. She was a beautiful “tuxedo” cat, who was diagnosed with lymphoma. While we were keeping her content on comfort measures at the end, I prayed to God for help dealing with her loss as I was very attached to this little creature.
Well, the good Lord knew that I loved tuxedo cats, and I had often told Him in prayer that when Cassie died, I would want to get two cats next time so they could be companions to one another.
The night Cassie die, I went to the vet and what do you think was in a cage in the middle of the room? Two tuxedo kittens who had been abandoned on the vet’s doorstep! In spite of how heartbroken I was in that moment, I looked at the cage and said, “It’s the Lord.”
Cassie passed away peacefully that night, and a week later, little Snarkey and Mojo came home with me to begin our new life together.
Who needs a psychic when you can have a God like ours?
