Sue Pike–Animal Communicator

Sue Pike–a Reiki Master, Intuitive Healer and Medium…and, more directly relevant for our purposes, an Animal Communicator, who heals and communicates with animals–discusses her background and path toward the healing arts, including the evolution of her work as an animal communicator; touches on The New York Times profile of her in that capacity, and the Gawker post mocking that profile and Sue herself as part of addressing the skepticism she routinely encounters in her work; explains the preparation for and phases of communicating with an animal, tied mostly to a session she conducted with one of the animals that lives with my family and me: our beloved, beautiful, female cat Curtis; responds to some of the elements of that session–and some specific questions we included that only my family would know the answers to, and which Sue’s communication with Curtis yielded the correct responses; fields some listener calls, and more.

The show has aired since late 2005 on Tampa’s WMNF. Strauss lives in Jupiter Farms, FL with his family, including four cats, two horses and one dog. He spends each day talking to those animals, and maintains they talk right back to him, an as yet unverified claim.
