The story of Oskar and Sammy

Oskar and Sammy animal communication

Imagine life without animals. You can’t, can you?

If you’ve ever had a pet you’ll understand just how important they can be. They become part of the family, part of the furniture even. At my parents’ house you’re hard pushed to get a spot on the sofa when Lord Louis is around. Even when they’re stealing your socks, chewing your new trainers or rolling in god knows what, they’re still absolutely adorable! But what happens when your beloved pet is no longer around?

Last year I was blessed to discover an Animal Communication Practitioner’s Course in Essex where I learnt how to communicate with animals. During the course we learnt how to connect with them in face to face and via distance, both on the earth plane and in the spirit world. Ever since the course I’ve been feeling increasingly drawn to animals, so it was a lovely surprise to find an email from a lady requesting some animal communication.

Vicky explained that sadly one of her dogs, Oskar, had been diagnosed with a tumour, and that she thought her other dog Sammy was feeling sad and picking up on Oskar’s illness. I requested that Vicky send me a photograph of each and that she didn’t give me any more information.

Before I sat down to attempt communication I received the news that Oskar had been put to sleep. At first I was disappointed that I hadn’t managed to speak with him whilst he was still with us, but I was soon reminded that the universe always has a greater plan.

I was a little nervous as I opened my laptop and signed in to Skype to speak to Vicky, it had been a while since I’d practiced my animal communication. I decided to set myself a challenge; I loaded up the two photographs, specifically without knowing which dog was which because I wanted to test my own skills and intuitively feel which one was no longer with us, and instantly I knew. Oskar was the beautiful Hungarian Vizsla on the left.

As soon as I saw him I felt a strong connection, as I did with Sammy. But Oskar was something else. He was beautiful, inside and out, a gentle loving soul – a bit dozy at times. I sensed that he was a very calm, chilled out boy although he would get overexcited, particularly at the sight of a squeaky toy. He loved a cuddle. This stunning pooch would melt your heart in a second, he certainly melted mine without even meeting him.

I picked up on a few of the sadder details such as where the tumour was located and how his behaviour changed as he became sicker. I even managed to describe a special memory that Vicky completely understood, which brought smiles to her and her daughter as they sat and listened to the reading. But the best part of this message was that Oskar was able to say thank you to Vicky for looking after him and reassure her that she did all she could, hence the reason we were destined to connect after his passing.

And let’s not forget pup number two. I instantly felt dear little Sammy’s sadness, it was radiating from his picture. I explained to Vicky that his behaviour had changed, that he wasn’t being himself lately. He had been taking himself away to quiet spots of contemplation around the house, which was unusual because he normally wanted to sit with you. He had also stopped wanting to go out for walks.

Sammy is usually a little on the cheeky side, full of life and play. I was being shown an image of a large field, he was running carefree and having fun. I advised Vicky that they needed to get out at the weekend, somewhere brand new, a change of scenery for the whole family. I reassured her that he would recover in time but he just needs lots of TLC at the moment.

The beauty of Animal Communication is that just like mediumship, we are still able to receive messages from our pampered pets. I personally think it is a shame that animals do not come through so often during readings, or just appear as a passing comment. But thankfully some of us are able to connect, and I feel very blessed to be able to do so.

Animal Communication is very useful for understanding behavioral problems, helping with the grieving process (yes animals also grieve) and for locating missing pets. Sessions can take place at the animal’s home or via distance although it is often much easier, believe it or not, to connect with a photograph. I highly recommend giving it a go if you have any concerns, whether you have a dog, cat, rabbit or horse, we are all one, part of the same universal need for love and communication.

I’ll leave you with some words from Vicky:

I was delighted to have Kalie communicate for me Oskar (recently departed from us) and Sammy’s experiences and wishes. It was really insightful and confirmed my hunches about Oskar and Sammy’s experiences and how I could fine-tune and provide Sammy with what he needs and desires.

The reading was very clear and made total sense to me, and Kalie furthermore gave me tips and advice about how I could improve Sammy’s life and communicate with Oskar. It was a pleasure to hear Kalie’s descriptions and left me enlightened and helped me through this difficult time of coming to terms with Oskar’s passing.

Kalie was lovely throughout the reading and there were no time constraints felt. I recommend it to anyone who wants to better understand and relate with his or her beloved pet”.

A beautiful surprise…

Lee with the children in India

You never really know what you’re going to find when you open your inbox. Among the surveys, spam and one-liners from dad, it’s always nice to hear from a client out of the blue.

I don’t remember everything I say during a reading, so it’s particularly nice when someone comes back and confirms that what you told them has since come true. I do remember sensing an extremely positive future for Lee when I did his reading, so it’s no surprise that he is doing so well.

Thank you for getting in touch.

Hi Kalie how are you? I hope you’re getting on ok and all is going well for you. Just wanted you to know your reading for Lee last was very accurate especially with the travelling.

He went to India beginning of January for three months volunteering, and when he comes back he has two weeks here then he starts a new job starting in Shrewsbury then could be placed in Cornwall or Norfolk. So everything is on the up for Lee very Proud of him. Just thought you would like to hear that I have enclosed a couple pictures if that’s ok. Thanks xx

How to lose a loved one


I wish I could give you a simple answer. But, what I can give you is reassurance that life goes on…

Just because you can’t see them, it doesn’t mean that they aren’t around. When you pass, your spirit leaves your body; so it has to go somewhere? Some people like to call it heaven, but I don’t like to associate with religion. Let’s call it moving to another dimension. I like to think that when we get there we’re shown all the lessons we should have learnt in life, and everything we didn’t understand about life begins to make sense.

So how should you deal with losing a loved one?


Losing someone special is one of the hardest challenges we face. We’ve all been through it and will continue to go through it, there’s no escaping death.

We all experience grief in different ways, some worse than others. Even mediums and spiritual people suffer from it, myself included. I remember the day that Tina died, it was the worst day of my life. I’ve never experienced anything like it. The shock of someone dying so suddenly can have strange effects on the body. I had the worst migraine I’ve ever had and no amount of pain killers would take it away. I felt so sick I was heaving in the street.  And of course I cried, from the moment I got the call.

Two years down the line I still miss her on a daily basis, and cry from time to time. The one thing I would say about grief is simply to feel it. If you weren’t supposed to be feeling a certain emotion then you wouldn’t be experiencing it. Loss can also teach you vast amounts about life, it taught me to be grateful for everyone and everything and never take anyone for granted, characterised by the tattoo on my arm.

I think it’s true when people say there are different stages of grief. I’m not sure that you ever really get over losing a loved one but it certainly gets easier over time, especially when you maintain a connection.

Establishing a connection

People tend to wonder why their loved one doesn’t give them a sign that they’re around but, the reality is that as human beings, we’re often far too caught up in our busy lives to notice them. Have you actually tried asking for a sign? It works both ways you know! Just like anything you need to work together to establish a connection. Talk to them in your head – no matter how silly that may sound – ask them to move something or switch the TV on perhaps, just try not to be too alarmed if / when they actually do! But don’t be disheartened if nothing happens, it can take a while, spirits do not measure time as we measure it.

If you’re not quite convinced, let me tell you a couple of stories…

The Organ

My mum had a reading with a Medium a couple of years ago, during the reading she was told that her dad was learning to play the organ in the spirit world – he had always loved organ music. She was also told that he would soon demonstrate his new skill via the television or radio.

One day my mum was driving down the mountain alone. She switched the radio on to one of the usual commercial stations expecting to hear chart songs, but it was playing a piece of organ music. The music went on for a few minutes, there was a brief silent pause then a voice that said ‘that was me playing the organ’. The station then returned to normal.

Moving Objects

As I said previously, when Tina died I went to pieces. I didn’t feel like doing anything, particularly socialising. One day my friend Amanda tried to cheer me up with a trial gym membership, which sounded like a good idea.

We were on the treadmill talking about Tina, I had two mobile phones perched securely in front of me near my feet. All of a sudden one of them slid down fast onto the treadmill. It was strange, but I smiled and thought to myself, Tina’s here. In my head I said to her ‘if that was you please move my other phone’. We carried on talking and walking then suddenly the most unexplainable thing happened, my other phone shot across the room so fast we didn’t even see it move, and it landed on the floor behind me. I knew I couldn’t have imagined it but I had to check that Amanda saw it too. It was amazing; there was simply no other explanation for it.

And that’s not the only thing Tina moved, around the same time I also began to notice that whenever I entered my bedroom, one of my incense sticks would be on the floor, which would always make me smile.

Some people may have noticed that I’ve been missing her a lot lately, and it seems she has too! Just last week I came in my bedroom to find my speaker sticking out in the middle of the room. I half dismissed it at first thinking I may somehow have moved it, but when it happened for the second time I knew exactly how it had got there. Once again I said in my head ‘if that was you Tina, please move the speaker again’. She didn’t do it straight away but sure enough the speaker moved again.

Have a reading

It’s not for everyone, but most people that have had a reading with a medium come out feeling comforted to know that their loved one is well and happy. Being able to connect with a friend or relative can be so special, especially when they tell you something that only you would have known. As long as you don’t become reliant on a medium I would suggest giving it a try, especially if you’re finding it hard to cope with the loss of a loved one.

Just because they have left the earth plane, it doesn’t mean you must forget about them and move on. It may not be possible to bring them back but it’s certainly possible to seek comfort in knowing that they are still around…
