Seeing the best in life's challenges

The Souls of Cats and Dogs

on January 11, 2014

A friend of mine just lost a beloved pet.  I know that feeling.  When my cat Alex, at age 19, stopped drinking and eating, I knew it was time.  The whole family knew it was time.  I couldn’t stand the thought of her dying alone, and I knew I couldn’t stay with her 24/7, so I took her to the vet to have her put to sleep.  As much as I knew that I was doing what felt right, it was terribly hard to do.  I am so thankful for my vet, who is such a compassionate person and who totally understood.

I now have two dogs.  They are totally attached to me.  We have a wonderful bond and share so, so much love.  Others comment on how sweet and loving they are.  Our neighborhood petsitter commented about how one, especially, looks into your eyes like she is looking into your soul.  And she does.

People have their opinions about whether animals have souls, and I guess we have no way to “prove” whether this is so.  But if you have loved a pet, you know in your heart that they do.  At the very least, there’s something there.

In my quest to understand the esoteric mysteries of life, I have read all kinds of stuff.  I have come to trust my own heart and sense of knowing to decide whether certain things I read “ring true.”  There are certain mysteries that are beyond our limited human ability to prove.  And I think this subject area is one of those beautiful mysteries.

Two things I have read attempt to “explain” how it works with animals and souls, and our connections of love with them.  Maybe someone who stumbles across this post will find some comfort from reading these words.

The first comes from a Kryon channeling by Lee Carroll that can be found at this link:

“Some of you have selected various animals on earth to be your partners or friends, and you call them pets. Even some of the ones to be slaughtered, if they have a Human who loves them, are pets… if only for a while. These are the ones who reincarnate.


“Why should such a thing be, Kryon? How does that work? Do they have souls? What’s the ‘rule’ you speak of?” In a way, they do have souls, but not as your souls are structured – not with the lessons your souls carry, or the multiple aspects you have. They’re not angels, but they’re support entities to those who are [Humans]. When they reincarnate the reason is in honor of the Human Being, you see? Animals, in general, don’t last that long on the planet. You might have this beautiful partner, this love essence that you have with an animal pet-friend. Then that animal-friend disappears in death, for again, they don’t live that long. The rule of incarnations is, therefore, “If the Human needs it, it happens.” So there is a scenario created within the system that helps Humans temper the loss of this love, and we’ll give it to you.


When your precious animal-friend dies, go look for another one right away. Don’t wait. Don’t wait! I’ll tell you why. Immediately go looking in places where animal babies are. Make no presuppositions about the kind of animal or the gender. Don’t necessarily try to match the one you lost. Instead, go to the places where you intuitively believe the young animals are, and look into their eyes. One of them will be the one… because it – and the Universe – knows intuitively where you’re going to look!


This is the system that honors you. Many know this and have said, “I know this is so because when I found this other animal to be my partner and my pet, it started doing the same things that my former animal did – it even responded the same way to me.” It’s a beautiful system in honor of you. It’s an acknowledgment of a broken heart, you see? So you can pick up where you left off.


Some may now ask, “What size animal are we talking about, Kryon? Is there a limit?” We say, there you go again [Kryon smile]. What size do you want? An elephant or a mouse? It doesn’t make a difference. If they’re loved by you and part of your karmic energy, they’ll reincarnate. However, it might be prudent of you to intuitively look for the size of animal that meets your living needs. God doesn’t give you an elephant when your mouse dies [laughter].”


And this channeling of Metatron by James Tyberonn also struck me.  The linguistic style of his channelings is a little harder to read, and some are way beyond me.  But some of the insights are right on, and the essence of what is said is consistent with what Kryon says.  Some quotes:


“Dogs will feel and react to anger and guilt in a more tangile way than cats.  Cats cannot experience guilt, and that detachment from human emotional waves is why cats may seem rather aloof.”  LOL!!

“Both cats and dogs in this derivation are serving as benevolent energy giving assistants to humans, to their caretakers. Both have the capacity to meld their energy fields with the human and are uniquely capable of becoming personality fragments of their human caretakers. That is why certain of these can often begin to display the physical characteristics of their ‘owners’, although this particular aspect occurs more commonly with the canine.

The canine exudes an extreme loyalty and unconditional love. A dedication that energetically is received by the human, and can assist in many ways. The dogs ( and cats) become both companions , healers and protectors. The feline, the cat, is much more in the ethereal (antimatter) realm in its conscious field. That is why many past societies worshiped the Feline forms of Jaguar, Lion , Tiger and Puma. These beings are extremely aware of thought forms of ethereal realms and offer a stealth strength and protection.

The house cat is capable of tremendous protection for their caretakers from untoward thought forms and negative energies. Certain breeds of dogs have this ability as well, but it is expressed and enacted differently.”

Question to Metatron: Pets often become family members, like children to their caretakers. And when they pass-over, the caretakers are quite devastated. Can the same soul essence of the pet can reincarnate immediately, if the owner obtains a new pet?

AA-Metatron: The ‘personality meld’ of the pet is in essence a unique part of the human caretaker, a personality fragment. When a pet physically dies the meld-fragment consciousness will absolutely remain close-by in etheric planes to continue in connection to the human. The human is often able to sense, even see or feel the essence of the pet after it passes over, or even if it runs away or is lost. The owner can communicate with the meld personality essence, and it will indeed ‘reincarnate’, re-enter the body of a new pet.

This is best if the new pet is obtained within 2-3 weeks of the passing, and is the same breed as the previous pet. In a short time the distinct personality traits & characteristics of the previous pet will clearly re-emerge in the new body, and the relationship and support will continue. In the event the new pet is a different breed and or a different astrological pattern, the similarities may not be as immediately apparent, but the meld-essence and support will be the same source. This is important to understand.

Crazy-talk, or truth?  It’s how it feels to you.  For me, some of the details given are beyond my ability to discern…..but the essence of what is being said feels true and comforting.

As always, food for thought  …


One response to “The Souls of Cats and Dogs

  1. Very much food for thought.mAnd I agree with you about ‘ ringing true’. We have recently been struggling with the final days of our family cat. Thanks for your post and links. I find I resonate more with some of these ideas which I have heard a bit before and prefer to the Rainbow Bridge.
