Product Description

From Amazon

When an animal is truly a family member, you want to communicate with it as completely as you do with human members, but how? Amelia Kinkade is here to show you, with plenty of tools for direct and serious conversation with your four-legged friends. Foes of anthropomorphism, beware: if you don't assume that animals have similar emotional responses to ours, you're liable to find this book a bunch of hooey. Kinkade's techniques involve various methods of telepathy, from sending specific questions like "what's your favorite food?" to receiving emotions like sadness or joy. Her years of experience working with pet owners and rescue services give Kinkade a wealth of fascinating stories. Conversations relayed between unhappy animals and their humans can be instructive to an amazing point--one horse knew he needed an iron supplement, while a cancer-ridden dog apologized to his owner for being "such a burden." Simple ideas seem relatively easy to trade. When leaving for a weekend trip, it's easy to observe an agitated dog or kitty. Calmly relaying facts about how long you'll be gone and what she should expect while you're gone can go a long way toward solving everything from tummy upsets to malicious shredding of furniture. More advanced students of Kinkade's methods can visually find specific causes of pain in animals and listen to what they need from their humans to heal. As with other books on telepathy, you won't find research or studies here. But if you have an open mind and willingness to experiment, Straight from the Horse's Mouth can open up satisfying new dimensions in your relationships with all animals. --Jill Lightner

From Publishers Weekly

Listed in The Top 100 Psychics in America, Kinkade is sought after by veterinarians and animal lovers around the world for her skill in locating lost pets, divining why an animal has lost its appetite or if it's close to death. She has communed with horses, dogs, cats, birds and even such zoo animals as elephants and jaguars. Peppered with heartwarming anecdotes about some of her cases, her book is primarily a guide to becoming an animal communicator something she believes is possible for any animal lover. The exercises she prescribes involve deep breathing, centering, asking many questions and keeping a "Paws and Listen" notebook. A true friend to animals, Kinkade also has strong opinions about animals' health and diet: "Aside from complaints about vaccinations, cats and dogs tell me the biggest culprit in destroying their health and happiness is commercial pet food." She encourages finding a holistic veterinarian and is adamant that we need to listen to animals more closely and to treat them with more tenderness overall. The last chapter, in which Kinkade reprints Albert Schweitzer's "Man and Creature," underscores her point. An excellent appendix lists, among other resources, companies that do no testing on animals. Agent, Jo Fagan, Jane Dystel Literary Management. (On-sale: June 12)Forecast: A first-rate guide for those who wish to talk to animals, this book may not satisfy readers who primarily enjoy stories of human-animal communion. On her nine-city author tour, Kinkade is bound to attract both the committed and the curious.

I discovered this after our kitty passed away in her second decade. I needed to know other people are aware animals are as sentient as we are; that the expression about them being "voiceless" is inaccurate. I always knew they understand everything we say and that they're responding to us too. But I was thunderstruck to find the proof I had hoped for. People were indeed the ones who weren't understanding when animals spoke. The inferior communicator wasn't them. It also teaches ways to understand what they are saying! It changed my life and was all the proof I will ever need, that my beliefs and inklings were right!

I hadn’t heard of <b>Amelia Kinkade</b> or the wonderful practice of “animal communication”. She happens to be <i>Rue McClanahan’s</i> niece. She spins narrow-minded perception and the human illusion of superiority on its head. The question of whether other mammals and every other animal speaks, reasons, and has opinions are the chief reason for presuming inferiority and disposability. Imagine how many fewer would be eaten or killed for being homeless, if you witnessed or held for yourself a two-way conversation with them! Their lives depend on us having this information.

I hope <b>Amelia</b> teaches in Canada. She reaches unhesitatingly into the soul of loving animals as family; revealing they do think of us as “Mom & Dad” and their answer to everyone’s most poignant question: “Do they know how much I love them?”.... is an easy YES! Tears streamed, when she described what it was like the moment her cat crossed over of natural causes. I rejoiced at finding this book. It refreshed my grieving soul. I need it again, unfortunately for our sweet cat son, gone twenty years too soon. I’ll try to take heart that our connection hasn’t gone anywhere.

I ditto the comments of other reviewers so I will keep this short. 5 stars!!! Worth 3 times the money.
I have studied the methods of other animal communicators, and purchased their books and tapes. This really is the best I have found.
I also have her CD which can be purchased from her web site, and it is wonderful as well.

What can I say, this book kicks arse! I've been to Amelia's interactive 2 day lectures, and would NEVER have thought of attending had I not read her book and thirsted for more! The book is dotted with medetations to help us break down our intellectual processes, so we become open to what our animal friends are telling us. It flows with stories from Amelia's life and keeps you fully entertained with her wit while jerking a tear or two from your eyes. If you are interested in animal communications-and who wouldn't be?-This book is for you.

Never before have I finished a book and immediately turned around and started reading it again. It's that great! Amelia's style of writing has the reader enthralled and you can't wait to read more. I laughed and I cried at her stories. I'd always been more of a "dog person" before but after reading about her cats I have much more respect for them. This book should be compulsory reading in all schools. Can't wait for Amelia's next book.

I do have to say, if I could rate this book with more than five stars, I most definetly would...I have read Amelia Kinkade's Straight from the Horse's Mouth: How to Talk to Animals and Get Answers cover to cover and it was such a wonderful inspiration to all who love and adore their animal friends...Amelia Kinkade certainly breaks it down to you on how to do animal communication and it seems simple enough...She adds wonderful stories from her experiences that will make you laugh, cry, and really make you think...I have to say my favorite part even though it was in the end, was the Epilouge: Rodney's Command Performance...I read it over and over...It made me cry yet feel hopeful, but I won't spoit it for those who haven't read this book...But all in all, it's very inspirational and I'm so greatful this book is avaliable to help us better understand and get closer with our animal friends.

I am a journalist, and I got this book for research in connection with an article I was writing for FERRETS magazine. I also got it because I was basically just interested in the subject. Well, I read A LOT of books for my research, but I am glad I *bought* this one. It's a keeper. It's extremely well-written in an entertaining style, and covers everything you could possibly want to know about interspecies communication. I even bought another copy as a gift for a friend. I will read it again, for sure. My one complaint? No ferret stories!

Let me tell you, reading this book was a PLEASURE. Amelia verified everything I have believed from the time I was a little girl, I just couldn't prove it. When the author ran thru the names of books she had read, (Women Who Run w/Wolves, Henry Blake, Monty Roberts, Stephen Covey, Allen M Schoen, Betty Edwards)it sounded like the same list I've been reading for years.
My first real "animal book" was in high school, "Kinship With All Life"...and I never stopped believing. I talked to ants and animals. I rescued spides, scorpions, and tarantullas. I have found rattlesnakes in my barn and out by my shed and have simply told them (verbally) that they were welcome as long as they left my horses and other companions alone. I've never had a problem.
I also liked Amelia's suggestion to ask God, "What can I do today to glorify God and love man." YES YES YES!!! When she said that man was the image and likeness of God I almost fell out of my chair (I was raised with that statement in church). Amelia's statement, that she never believed that God and man are separate is so true. I always figured if God loved man and the rest of the animals, of course we can all communicate together as we all have the same Father/Mother.
I read this book on the plane home and finished it the next day. I cried often with Joy reading it. The day I finished the book I immediately told my indoor companions how much I love them (two dogs and a cat).
That night in bed I told my female cat (Kiki) how much she was loved and how special she is. All this was done mentally (I might as well start practicing).
Kiki rarely sleeps on the bed in the summer, it's too hot.
