Do our pets share a telepathic connection with us?

[Excerpt from TT: 2000-09-21]

[echoprime] Do our pets (primarily dogs and cats) share a telepathic connection with us? (I’m thinking specifically of the morning I thought I “heard” my black cat, Solo, say my name.)

[Michael_Entity] Yes, but more accurately, they are telepathic EXTENSIONS of you. Though domestic animals do have distinct individualities, their “personalities” are the extensions of one or more Overleaves of the most bonded caretaker. If you “heard” your name from your cat, it is not uncommon for the animal to use a kind of telepathic medium to grab the attention of the caretaker.

We remind you, as well, if you are interested in any form of off-planet communication with alien sentience, Cats are the most viable accessible vehicle for that communication.
