Anyone have a theory on this?

I am a magnet for animals! OK...that sounds weird but it is true. This has happened all my life resulting in rehousing cats that have jumped in my car, turned up on my doorstep etc but it really hit home recently when a friend's "guard dog" turned up outside my bedroom window at 2.30a.m. He had only been to my house twice (and never my bedroom!) and lives about 5K away. He has never strayed and nor was there any obvious place for him to have got out. Thank God no one hit him on the road as he is a massive dog and I can assure you very scary to look at when waking from a sound sleep.

My horse was so head shy when I rescued him, nobody thought he would ever feel secure, but within days, he was burying his head in my boobs.

Last night, I was sitting out enjoying the stars and a huge big ginger cat turned up and just sat looking at me. No one I know around here owns a big ginger cat and I've been here 20 years. I spoke to him/her quietly so it wasn't frightened but made no effort to catch it as was quite late and just didn't feel right. Turned the lights out and went to bed. Haven't seen it tonight but it got me thinking. Is there a message in this?

Why is it that I walk into an empty shop and within minutes it has another 6 or so people in it. I have laughed for years thinking I should be paid for this "gift" to the shopkeepers! Happen to anyone else? Not a big issue obviously but sometimes I get goosebumps thinking about how many times this has happened and wondering why?

No Didi, I don't have a theory but is something I often ponder. Why do I collect cats to the extent that twice existing cats have turned up with kittens in tow - not theirs, they were nuetered males. Why do I have a flock of blue chickens and why did a Muscovy fly in and never leave, and I'm tripping over a goose that nobody could get near. Why was I able to prune trees through a mob of wild pigs until I'd worked my way out of their area - and they ignored me. Why did I accidentally disturb a nest of paper wasps and had them all over my head but never got one sting. And I could go on and on too.

There is a message there somewhere but I can't grasp it other than to think there must be something non-threatening about the way some people behave.

Cheers,
Ronnie

I reckon it's got to do with vibrations.... I don't mean 'vibes' as in the hippy sense.. or do I? Well everyone vibrates on their own frequency, that's why sometimes you meet people and for no apparent reason you either get on with them or you don't and it's not their personality, it's just their energy.

Well you must have a certain energy that these animals trust.

Some people like the sound of a cello, others prefer the violin, it's all in how the vibrations make you feel. If the violin energy of the higher strings gets on your wick, you might enjoy the lower sound of the cello. See where I'm going with this?

I've met some people who are fine, but their too harsh in their energy or have such a placid energy I almost doze off around them.

Unfortunately I had a teacher like this. He wasn't well liked by the pupils. He was strict as hell and if you yawned in his class you'd be told to stay behind after school and write lines. He was scary, the slightest twitch and he'd slap a detention on you.
It was his voice that sent me off into a doze. It was the level of it or something..... other people it's the way they do things. Watching my friend's sister put on her nail polish does it to. I could sit there for ages and watch her messing about with her nails. It was the level of concentration and I suppose the fact that she was in a calm state of mind that transfered to me....

If an animal gets that sort of vibration off you and it feels comfortable in your presence it won't run off.

So basically Didi. You hum just right for them. :p

Sorry, I've had numbers banging about inside my head all afternoon and my head is like macrame.

I think that's really neat. My daughter is like this with animals - she can walk up to wild birds and they get on her hand. She has a 'pet' starling - a bird which was injured last summer, which she hand-fed everyday, and which has just stayed. No other starlings this time of year, just her pet 'Licorice'. All animals just come to her, and she can get them to do just about anything.

I'm sort of the same way with people, but have never done more than just wonder about it; people I have never met just open up and tell me their whole life stories, and often it seems like they really just needed to get something of their chests, and I just listen.

Interesting things to ponder...

I really like your theory Yakut! No I am not a witch MM - perhaps my broom has fairy dust flying off it. Laugh.

Actually Ronney, you made me think about when I was a child. My father used to send me off to catch one of our free roaming hens as no one else could get near them, even with grain. What I didn't know and never saw was that was dinner! Our outside cat also came and got me (no one else was allowed near) when she had a litter of kittens. One time I got to her hiding place after a convaluted walk following her around pampas grass, through the pine trees etc and ended up back quite near the house. Here, in her nest were her brand new kittens - covered by a still warm Morepork she had killed! I was so facinated that she had done that to keep them warm.

My youngest daughter has always been the same with animals too Andrea. Her choice of career - nursing! Funny that.

It is def. something to do with vibrations and the fact that animals are so much more tuned in spiritually than us mere humans :-) I am an animal magnet as well, much to hubbys disgust. He says its the tone of my voice but its more than that!
