    All I know is that when I meow, my cats meow back. And when I go "bock, bock, bock" the chickens come over and respond. And when I bark, I scare our dog. So I think that barrier has already been broken....

    And this is how Animal Psychic became a legitimate occupation.... I guarantee they are all NFs.

    So no con-artists involved? Are you assuming they are all sincere?

    And perhaps it is possible to communicate with animals if you study how they use sound and physical cues to communicate without assuming they are telepathic.

    Easy, be a remarkably cold and calculating liar. Be mean or cruel. Exhibit such abhorrent human behavior that you make them stop in their tracks, rethink the meaning of life, question its inherent beauty and consequently become temporarily or perhaps even permanently misanthropic.

    I think animal psychicism is vague enough to where it's easy to convince yourself it's real even if you're not being totally sincere. The Dog Whisperer guy seems legit, there is definitely base-level communication, but some people take it really far.

    Pfft, ethology is a science and has plenty of merit.

    Animals exhibit behavior, and some people are better than others at accurately perceiving and analyzing said behaviors.

    The Dog Whisperer is rather practical and he bases his methods on dog behavior. I do know what you are talking about. There was an actual "Pet Psychic" on Animal Planet who would communicate with deceased pets. I think she probably had herself convinced on at least some points, but it is hard to imagine taking it that far with sincerity. I couldn't determine for certain if she was completely convinced of herself, although it seemed entirely possible.

    Heh, my cat always responds to me too. The best communication I've had with animals however, was a few years ago in a little farm, there was a whole barnful of sheep, I looked inside the barn through a small window and did this sheep/goat sound. All the sheep got out of the barn and started following me around everywhere, rather amusing.

    That's awesome...Animals love me....I'm not saying I'm an animal psychic or anything, but I think animals can tell which human beings are going to help them and which are going to hurt them....My aunt used to say that if her cat avoided a bf or a person, she did too. Hehehhe
