Animals In Print
The On-Line Newsletter

From 25 May 2009 Issue


Excerpted from SAYING GOODBYE TO YOUR ANGEL ANIMALS by Allen and Linda Anderson (New World Library 2007). Reprinted with permission. All rights reserved.

Following are many of the most frequently reported ways in which animals remind people that only the physical body leaves at death, and that the spirit and love live on. People report animals who, after death:

* Scratch or knock at the door

* Pad or make the sound of clicking claws along floors

* Press against the person's body with a definite feeling of weight

* Shake the bed as if jumping on or off it

* Purr, meow, bark, or snore audibly enough for more than one person to hear

* Leave paw prints or food around food bowls

* Make a depression in the bed linens where they used to sleep

* Emit a burst of familiar scent in places that were previously free of pet odor

* Drop a favorite toy, which has been put away or lost, in a spot where it will be easily found

* Set off some kind of electrical charge that causes a clock alarm to go off, lights to flicker, or the telephone to ring at the same time that the death or burial occurred

* Appear as a glow of golden light or in a light-body so real that the person tries unsuccessfully to touch it

* Lick or kiss the person's skin or tickle with whiskers

* Seem to appear in spirit as a sign or symbol of life after death, such as a butterfly or rainbow, on a significant day or time.
