10 SHORT STORIES TELLING PEOPLE WHAT ANIMALS WANT YOU TO KNOW.
ANIMALS SPEAK is a book of short stories based on some of the more common issues I see from my animal clients as well as my own experience as a long time, many times failed, animal parent. These stories are written mostly from the animals’ perspective, but also from that of the animal communicator or people’s point of view.
Come and Norman and August and Sawdust and all their accompanying friends as they share with you their stories about anxiety, itchy and scratchy, pain, nutrition, grief, cat behaviour and more.
Accompanying these short stories is a list of 33 Things Your Animals Need You to Know. A random collection of suggestions to regular questions and problems I have come across.
You may ask, “why 33?”.
In short I didn’t know where to stop and every time I thought that was enough, I would think of something else I could include. But, I needed a stopping point so gave myself a limit and that was 33. There is significance to this number with many meanings, but the two that were relevant to me getting this book out to the world were Inspiration and Courage.
I felt inspired for a solid 2 weeks over the past 12 months writing this book until I joined the Inspirational Books Writers Book Writing Retreat. Surrounding myself with inspiring people on the same journey certainly gave me the kick I needed, not to mention some direction and structure to get these pages in some kind of order. When it came to crunchtime to decide if I was just writing this for the cupboard or to publish, that brought out the inner demons - I realised I was about to show myself to the world and to be honest, that took a little more courage than I thought I’d require. So 33 it is - maybe an extended list in the next book.
My intention in writing this book is to offer readers a perspective on our animal’s health from the animals themselves. Since we, as humans are the greatest influence on their lives, I figure we all need to learn more to be able to do better.
