Amazing stories of Lydia Hibys conversations
with animals along with photographs.
Lydia Hiby calls herself an animal communicator
or an animal psychic. Simply, she talks to animals. For nearly 20
years Hiby has worked with thousands of animals and pet owners as
an animal communicator. She listens to what the animals tell her,
and relays these messages of concern and insight to caring humans.
In this book, Hiby talks about her own experiences communicating
with animals, which started when she was a child. She also discusses
ways that others can learn to communicate with their companion animals.
She shares fascinating and heart warming stories of her work with
dogs, cats, horses, and a variety of exotic animals. Hiby tells
of using her communication abilities to search for lost pets, and
her insights from animals about death and grief. Most importantly,
Conversations with Animals reinforces the powerful connection that
weaves together the lives of animals and humans.
Conversations with Animals
I am a born skeptic, so I wasnt about to buy
into the accounts Id heard of Lydia Hibys remarkable
ability to communicate with animals. But one conversation with Lydia
made a believer out of me. Lydia told me things about my dog---who
was ill and dying---that she couldnt have learned through
conventional means. I still cant explain it, but I realize
there are forces in life that well never understand and must
just take on faith. And Lydia Hiby may be one of those.

Except for licking, tail wagging, and assorted woofs,
I honestly dont know if animals can communicate or how they
think, but I have seen Lydia Hiby do her thing and her work with
animals brought my entire audience to tears. She was even right
on target with the thoughts of my own cat and dog!

During veterinary school at UC Davis, nonverbal communication
was not a method I was trained to use. However, I have always kept
an open mind. I use Lydias unique ability as a resource in
difficult cases. Her insight is intriguing and exciting. Lydias
accuracy continues to astound me.

Lydia Hiby, and co-author Bonnie S.
Lydia Hiby was encouraged by her co-author, Bonnie
S. Weintraub, to share these inspiring stories in a book. They first
met in 1994 when Weintraubs dog, Kodiak, faced a life-threatening
situation. Because of Hibys communication with Kodiak, which
ultimately led to saving the dogs life, Weintraub turned from
skeptic to a strong supporter of Hibys work. Their mutual
belief in communicating with animals, and the hope of reaching thousands
of other animals and their owners, inspired them to write this book.
