"In September 2009, I attended an Animal Communication workshop with Cass and had no idea what to expect. The idea of talking to animals was completely new to me and while not a total sceptic, there was a lot for me to take in. It was a fascinating day and the one thing I came away with was that we talk to animals with our hearts not our heads.
During the next 12 months I practised this in small ways by asking my horses how they liked their feed mixed and telling that I loved them. Just simple things.
Then in November 2010, I had the very sad experience of losing my two Peruvian paso mares in the same week. They were mother and daughter. I had sent them to a near-by trainer and after they had been there two days my younger mare died of colic before the vet could get there. It was a total shock as she was a fit active 7 year old with bundles of energy and a very feisty nature.
The trainer then advised that the mother should be seen by a chiropractor as she had problems in her back end and was in a lot of pain.
It was severe damage to the pelvis from her habit of running backwards in fear over many years.whenever she was caught for feet trim etc.
She also had a vet check which verified this and with a heavy heart I decided to have her put down. as with this type of injury there is no return to soundness or freedom from pain.
Then I remembered Cass at Horsewhispers and asked her to help this lovely little mare pass over and meet up with her daughter.
Cass spoke to my horses several times and they told her things that only I would have known.
An example is that the mother told Cass she really appreciated how I had helped her when she had hurt her front leg at one stage.
Over about a week Cass helped with their passing and also answered my many questions about animal communication. I must have seemed a real sceptic.
During the next 14 months, I continued to 'talk with my heart' to all my animals but didn't pursue any further studies in animal communication.
Then in early February this year, I made the painful decision to have my beloved older horse put down due to his arthritis. He had become very immobile and I knew he was in pain.
My vet had advised that it was a decision that was kinder for the horse.
Tossy was the love of my horse life.
I decided that it could be done the next day.
Then I remembered Cass. I sent her an email that evening with fingers crossed that she would read it as there were only a few hours before he would be passing.
To my great relief, Cass was there and agreed to help Tossy pass over the next morning.
He was almost 22 years old and I am very grateful for the 10 years I had with him in sickness and health. He was a horse of great dignity and spirituality.
I am honoured to have known him.
By now I was a little more experienced with animal communication, and able to talk a bit to Tossy myself. He told me that many of his breed (Peruvian Paso) had a very hard time in Australia since they were introduced here in 1976 partly due to the very small gene pool and partly through neglect and at times cruelty.
I wanted to help promote this wonderful breed and planned to do so in due course.
I didn't tell Cass about my little talk with Tossy, but to my utter amazement he elaborated to her and told her quite plainly that I shouldn't promote the breed unless I could guarantee there would be no more suffering from poor genes and poor treatment
This was incredible stuff.
For the next month I googled everything I could find on Peruvian pasos in Australia and New Zealand, hoping to find another suitable paso horse.
I haven't been successful, but what has happened is that I have had several people contact me, one completely out of the blue and from the other side of the country, and tell me about the early history of this beautiful breed in Australia including the hard time Tossy had in his youth.. What he told Cass and me was completely verified and I can only respect Tossy's wish that I don't pursue the breed.
Cass has been wonderful throughout this sad time.
One thing, though, is that I now have a great desire to pursue my studies and experience in animal communication.
Even in situations of sadness, it has given another dimension which makes me feel I am still really close to my animals even though they have passed and that it is only a thin veil between us.
I have a lot more to learn, but in writing this and looking back over the last two years, I can see how I've grown through Cass's help.
My relationship with my animals has changed dramatically..
Instead of loving them so much but being afraid of the heartbreak when they pass, I am now able to feel continuity between life and death. I feel close to the animals who have passed but have an open heart to meet my new animal friends.
Cass is now helping me find my next horse.
Heartfelt thanks, Cass"

Molly and Minie are doing a lot better together now, and Minie only bugs Molly sometimes, but Molly doesn't get as stirred up as she used to (only a bit!).
Molly is a changed dog and looks a lot happier! But she does still bark a bit and gets jealous at times. She has completely stopped nipping at Morgaine's legs when we take her for walks now.
We can't thank you enough.

"Cass, thank you for the report. I've just received it now. The report is so outstanding that I cannot put into words how I am feeling now. Now I know how much time is left for us, so I want to cherish our time together as much as I can. Thank you very much for the reading. I've tried animal communication three times in the last 2 years with different animal communicators and you are the best! I am so happy to get to know an unique animal communicator like you. Maybe Robin has helped me finding you."

Thanks so much again. You've made this so much easier for both of us, I don't know how to thank you :0)

"As a breeder and Trainer I have always believed that a good relationship with your local vet, feed store and Bowen therapist was so important to keeping our ponies in the best possible condition for both the show ring and pleasure. Until I met Cass. Cass has dealt with a few of my horses and ponies now and I could not be happier with the out come. I feel that she is the missing link in the chain and is always there to answer all my questions. Cass has never seen my horses and ponies before , only the photos I have sent her and she knows more about them than I could ever have imagined. I love how professional she is and explains every thing to me in such great detail. Thank u Cass for your dedicated service."

Personally I have really loved the course and have well and truly got my monies worth. I also bought the 3 together which saves money. Cass is readily available and very prompt in replying to any questions I have had. Also really supportive, which I have found lovely as for me I have always felt and sensed things but not at all confident in believing it. Unlike your bigger course providers I find she has a real personal approach which is the next best thing then an in person workshop with her.
The written content is easy to follow. Also the exercises are easy to follow. In saying that like anything you may not get perfect at first. But it is practice really and I have found as I have opened up and worked through the exercises it is easier. Cass also helps with blocks that may be preventing you from communicating. I have found this really useful and I am getting clearer information , also I guess that confidence to just follow your intuition with what you are getting. Some animals I am finding easier than others to talk to. She marks the assignments really quickly in a couple of days with lots of helpful feedback.

" Cass performed a 'distance session' on my horse, and what she was able to tell me was simply amazing. Without reading the things she told me about my own horse, I would have never believed it - but she has certainly changed my opinion now and I will be more open-minded in the future. I highly recommend Cass to every horse owner!"

"Thanks for helping us Cass! I am very impressed about the depth of information you got from Dodger and the fact you picked up on things I hadn't told you about and it was true!"

"Dear Cass, I would like to thank you for all the help you have given me with my old mares, Bubby and Patsy. Thanks to you, I know they are both happy and I have learnt so much more about their personalities, especially Patsy's. The way you do listen to them proves you certainly have a gift with horses. You can not only listen to them, you are able to pick up old injuries and current problems as well! Your knowledge of what you do is astounding and I have recommended you to many people. You truly are 'The horse listener'
Thank you for all the time you've given my horses and I."

"Hi Cass, Things with my dogs have been going quite well lately, I have been putting your spray on them every so often and there has been no aggressions sessions lately...I will keep using it though, has to be a hell of a lot better for them than drugs...."

"Cass has helped me and Jack (Banner the name I gave him) through our journey (well sort of a journey)
Anyway Jack came from a farm where he spent most of his life (16 years). I was curious of what had happened and where he had been before. Luckily for me I found out about Cass who has had a few chats with jack. She has helped him in many ways from getting his mind changed about being broken in to little things like toothaches and sore legs. It's very helpful having an animal communicator on the net to talk to, even at the moment where Jack didn't like his name Banner. Cass asked which name he prefers. He'd rather be called Jack. He can have a name he likes and is used to than calling him something he doesn't know at all."

"I was given a ringneck parrot named Noah 18 months ago which was someones unwanted birthday present. He had been neglected and was a very timid bird to the point that even looking at him would make him squawk. During the past 18 months I have made
considerable progess but he still would try and bite me at every opportunity - especially when filling his food bowls. I also had a feeling that he was in fact a she going by certain behaviours.
Cass confirmed that indeed he is a she and wanted a name change to Pippa. She asked for an orange mirror for her cage and also explained the constant hand biting. Apparently she had been scared by banging hands on her cage.
Interestingly Cass also mentioned the pink sheet I use to cover Pippa's cage at night. Pippa said she feels secure with this covering which is good to know. Also she mentioned that Pippa is happy where she is now and she enjoys the quiet of the house.
After making the recommended changes, within days Pippa is more placid and is no longer trying to bite me when I feed her. She sits quietly while you talk to her and when I say her new name, she responds by coming to the edge of the cage.
I am looking forward to having Cass now work with both my dogs."

Thanks to you he is on top of the world and I really appreciate your hard work.

Your kindness is so greatly appreciated and I'm so happy because Bosco seems a lot happier than the last time he had a reading done. This is such great news!
Sarah and Bosco
I've noticed a huge difference today - she just seems so happy, and she whinnies a greeting every time she sees us, it is so good to see her like that again! Thank you!
Gina and Asha
Thanks for your help over the past few days. It's been hard and I've been bursting into tears at the drop of a hat. It was a big shock coming home the other night to see her limping but now I've prepared myself for next week and been talking to the dogs about it so we should all be more prepared for it.
