Paranormal and Animals


I have found it difficult to find trustworthy paranormal evidence pertaining to animals: dogs, cats, etc. but, wanted to write a short blog on what I did find out there. Some of the information is very interesting, especially situations that involve beloved family pets and their owners honestly believing that these pets have returned to them in one form or another.

I have owned several pets over the years and rescued many more. For the most part they were all dogs. In November, we lost our rescue mutt, Abbey, to Cancer at the age of 2 years. I am saddened to say, I have never felt any of the animals I have loved around me at any time. How about you? Do you have a story about an animal? I would love to hear from you.

This was a good episode of the program Paranormal State.

 Where are Animals Buried?

Where are animals buried?

Animals to which people are emotionally attached are often ceremonially buried. Most family pets are typically buried in the yard or another option is the use of pet cemeteries which have been in existence since the late 1800’s in the United States. A specially designed pet casket or vault may be used. Another popular option is cremation of the remains that are then saved in an urn, buried or scattered at a designated location. Most pet cemeteries have a chapel and are respectful of the varied religious denominations as well as alternative, non-religious ceremonies.

Los Angeles, California Pet Cemetery

This cemetery was founded by a veterinarian by the named of Dr. Eugene C. Jones in 1928. This pet memorial park covers ten acres in Calabasas, California. There are 40,000 animals interred here and the variety of pets includes horses, dogs, cats, parrots, a hen and the MGM lion named Tawny who died in 1940.

The MGM Lion







Many celebrities have their pets at this park:

  • Mae West
  • Bob Newhart
  • Eva Gabor
  • Gloria Swanson
  • Charlie Chaplin
  • Humphrey Bogart
  • Mary Pickford
  • Steven Spielberg
  • Rudolph Valentino

There are also stories of hauntings at this location and one such report is that Rudolph Valentino’s Doberman Kabar, haunts the area. There are reports of the dog heard panting, barking and  licking visitor’s hands. When Valentino died on August 23, 1926 he was 3,000 miles away from home. At the precise moment of his death, Kabar howled so loudly he was heard by Beatrice Lilly who was driving past Valentino’s estate. Kabar died in 1929 and was given a lavish ceremony when he was laid to rest at this cemetery. The ghost of this dog has also been seen by several people over the years at the estate.

    Your take on “Paranormal” experiences has the hair standing up on the back of my neck! The photographs (if they are untouched) are intense and quite clear with what you see.

    This genre of reading would typically be a “pass” for me – but the quality of your has drawn me in. I have much more reading to do here and possibly even a story to share.

    Thanks you for this entertaining and educational experience.

      Wow, Loretta. I appreciate your feedback and support. All photos are untouched and I try to keep everything “real”—Thank you so much for your kind words–means a great deal to me.

    Yes I have had two different types of experiences regarding “visits” from lost beloved pets. My first was from a black cat I had inherited from my grandmother when she passed away. His name was Little Bear. He had grown old and developed panoleukemia. He ran away to die after coming very emaciated. About 4 mths had passed. And my immediate family and I began seeing him everywhere on our property. (We found his dead remains) It was so surreal. Then we began seeing him more often inside the house. It has been about 9 years now…and everywhere I had lived or traveled in that time Little Bear has made his presence known.
    Last summer, on July 17, 2014. My small beloved seizure aid dog died in my arms of kidney failure. I had found out later she had been poisoned by someone. This dog was my best of friends and companion for 11 years of my life. She was family to me and I loved her so much! He name was Pimi. A deer Chihuahua breed. So sweet and precious and amazingly bright. Anyhow…in the end I held her close in her favorite blanket and talked her through until she seized and took her last breath. It was the hardest thing I had ever experienced emotionally. I made sure our eyes were locked and told her she will be ok and that it was ok for her to go and be at peace as I stifled back my tears. Once I knew she was no longer of this earth…I held her for at least an hour. Saying my goodbyes and finally broke down in tears. It devastated me. Still does. She had an Egyptian style burial with my best friend…whom is my ex husband and a few friends. And is buried on a family property in the desert where we live. Since her passing I have had 4 maybe 5 sightings and actual interactions with her that were so amazing it gave me joy. She actually came to me. I reached for her and she vanished. But she looked happy, healthy, and whole again. Another time shortly after I was in a waking state and felt her walking up to my left side of the bed. I opened my eyes and there she was curled up beside me! I swear this on my life. My eyes teared up. I reached for her and I could actually feel her. Mind you I was awake by then. Our eyes met. Then she went to sleep and vanished slowly. I began crying and said thankyou for coming to see mommy Pimi. I love you so much. I will be ok. You are free to be at peace. I just want you to be happy. But if you ever want to come back and see me I am ALWAYS here for you. I love you so much. And on occasion I still feel her curl up on the bed and it wakes me. I just smile and say hi Pimi. I love you and drift back to sleep. Because I KNOW it is her. I believe in things I see and experience. Especially being that I am an Atheist. It is the most amazing feeling ever. I wish she would come around more. The visits are less and less now.
    I would love to find your sites. My entire life has been plagued with positive and negative paranormal sinve I was three years old. I have a gift that some may see as a curse. I would love to discuss that in detail sometime. And maybe get your opinions or advice. I am a believer of spirit life. I see and experience it and have even helped souls cross over on occasion. Or had prophetic dreams as well. I can see dead people but not as often as I did as a child. I want to use my gift to help others someday but do not know how to get started in the field. That saddens me. I also have an interest in spirit photography as well. As I have collected many orb photos I personally have taken. Thank you for taking the time to hear my story. I would love to connect with you. I have Google+, FB, Instagram, Kik and Twitter. My name is Heather Cantu and my handle is @HauntedCherry71
    if you are so inclined to find me. Thank you so much! You may share this and my info. if you like with others in the field. I give full permission. As it would really help me in my life experience in this field.
