Mans Best Friend

When we are called in to investigate haunted homes and businesses it’s always good to know that we are protected and guided by spirit guides and loved ones in spirit. It’s even more reassuring to know that we are also helped from time to time by our pets & furry friends in spirit.

Many of you will have sensed, seen, felt or heard a beloved pet in the house after they have passed over, you know that feeling when suddenly you feel the bed indent, as if someone, or something has sat down. Then you can maybe feel warmth, and slight pressure just like the cat used to do when it snuggled on the top of your quilt, and you know that your lovely pet has returned to let you know that they are still around you.

The feeling that the dog has jumped on the bed and in your half sleepy state you put your hand out to stroke them, you can feel the fur beneath your hand, the warmth and the love. Then the realisation, that physically, they are not with you anymore. The knowledge that they have passed flits into your mind and yet you can still feel them there. Then as you look, you see nothing, and you can no longer feel their presence.

The experience, you are sure, of seeing your beloved pet out of the corner of your eye, just as if they were still with us, letting us know that they are still around.

What if you could capture that on camera, how amazing would that be?

On a number of investigations that Feathers rescue team have been out to, we have been supported by an old ginger cat with an unusually bent tail, and a German Shepherd Dog that once belonged to Steve. I know at this point some of you may be rolling your eyes, and thinking that it was time we were heading for the funny farm but it has actually happened. Home owners have even seen these animals at various times, some didn’t even realise that they were in spirit, as they can appear in a very solid form.

The Old Ginger appears for us when we are going to be dealing with a young child, here on the earth plane, who is being adversely affected by negative energy or an imbalance of energy and needs some help, especially, with grounding and protection. The Cat is normally seen by at least 3 individuals over a period of 2 weeks. This way we know that we have a potential rescue situation or investigation coming in. When we arrive at the property, the cat is either outside the house, or the home owner has seen it, and their own cat or dog has reacted to its presence or to an unseen presence by the fireplace!

The German Shepherd, Tia, lets us know that she is with us in many different ways. One of the most unusual has to be a potential haunted business premises that we were asked to investigate a couple of years ago. The property we were called to was a very old 3 storey building and had been occupied by a number of different businesses over the years. At the time we were called it was occupied by a Recruitment Agency. The girls that worked there were becoming more and more nervous, they were becoming unnerved by a ‘presence’ in the building, a feeling of being watched, cold spots that could not be accounted for, computers that turned themselves on and off, all of which they put down to their own paranoia and the fact that they were sometimes left to work alone in the building. Then the activity began to gain momentum; items started to go missing and then turn up in weird places. The kitchen tap began to suddenly gush water out without warning , even the plumber had no explanation for it.

As we entered the building everything felt out of balance, the energy felt wrong. Anne one of the Investigation team was contacted by a Lady in spirit straight away, who told her that her fingers were sore from sewing but she didn’t seem to be trapped in anyway and walked past Anne and on down the stairs.

As we went up to the first floor both Steve and Chris saw a lady carrying tea cups, we all had a good laugh at that one as we had never had a ‘Ghost’ make us a cuppa before

In the largest of the upstairs offices, there was a very strong presence of a male spirit who gave us the impression that he was in charge. One part of the room felt much colder than the rest and as Steve made a connection with him, he sensed that this man was very stubborn and quite set in his ways. He wasnt very happy about the changes that were taking place in the building.

Anne said that she thought the name of George linked with him and that he was looking for Mary.

Jackie then had a psychic image of boxes with nails and tacks in, and various things scattered here and there. The room seemed to change in her vision and it became dark and dusty. Everyone felt the entire room go colder. The lady from the recruitment agency that was showing us round got a bit freaked out and left the room.

The investigation team joined together filling the room with a white light (psychically) and asked the male spirit if he, or any other spirits present needed our help, they could step forward.

We then felt another male step forward, who told us he was the grandfather of a girl who had worked at the building. He told that he had been concerned about the negative energy that was coming from the male spirit and was protecting his Granddaughter from it. We became aware that there was a spirit dog in the room, it was Steves dog Tia, who was helping to protect us from any further negativity and we could feel her presence between us and him. With so much loving energy in the room, the male spirit went through the light with no hesitation and without any need for persuasion. As soon as this had happened, the room suddenly became lighter and brighter, and the tension seemed to lift.

On looking into the history of the building we discovered that one of the earliest occupants had been 2 brothers, who for many years had run an ironmongers shop from the premesis. Thomas and George Davies appear on the 1841 census at the property along with other family members, including a sister Mary. The Davies brothers ran their ironmongers business until the middle of the 1880’s. Could this be who we had helped over?. We do think that all of our clues during our investigation point to them. A male, used to being in charge, boxes with nails in, George who was looking for Mary! So was Mary the sister who made them cups of tea who we encountered on the stairs?....and who was the lady rubbing her sore fingers.– From the research we learned that following the closure of the ironmongers, the premesis became a drapers, tailors and milliners shop right up to the 1920’s.

What amazed us even further was one of the photographs that we had taken during our investigation. There in the window is Steves dog, Tia who had helped us during the rescue, except this window was 2 storeys up and the dog is guarding outside !

Following our visit the Ladies at the recruitment agency were very happy to tell us that since that date they have not felt unnerved , even when on their own, and that no more unusual activity has taken place.
