There are so many pet psychics out there. I’m sure most of them are in it for the money and don’t actually have the ability to reach out truly. Sonya Fitzpatrick, however, I truly believe is not one of those types. She is genuinely compassionate and connected to whatever plane deceased pets exist on. She’s been featured on Ellen, and in truth, that’s half the reason I trust her, but more than that, I know several people who’ve had sessions with her and felt peace or found answers they didn’t even know they needed.
I was referred to her by a friend, and while I still am a total skeptic, the experience felt raw, true, genuine. Believe what you will. My rational mind could debunk some of the things brought up. She asked at one point if I had a black cat. Rationally, I know there is a picture of him on my website. Do I think she stalked down my information? No. You can believe or not believe what you want, but after my session, I felt a sense of connection that I’d lost in my grief.
What To Expect
So before I go into the details of my session, I figured it’d be helpful to know sort of what to expect if you’re deciding to speak with her.
You have to book a session on her website first. It’s pretty simple. After you’re signed up and paid for, her assistant will email you asking for the name of the pet(s) you wish to communicate with. She does deceased pets but also living ones as well. You’ll send a picture of the pet(s) and then you’re good to go.
On the day of your sessions, her assistant will call you and connect you with her. Once you’re on the line, she’ll start communicating. I didn’t have anything prepared and didn’t really know what to ask, but she pretty much ran the entire session, asking me questions, telling me things Chai felt or was saying to her.
Your session is 30 minutes. If I could have talked to her for hours, I would have done it. It was a cathartic experience, entirely.
So. The fun stuff. I wish I had recorded the session so I could remember everything, but I’ll try to share as much as I can remember. Believe it or don’t. I thought some of it was pretty spot-on.
- One of the first things she asked me was if I had a black cat and that Chai loved him. Chai and Spiffy were never very close but they lived together for 5 years of Chai’s life so it was interesting that he was one of the first things she brought up. She also said Spiffy was sad when Chai died, which he was. He cried every day until I got Remington. It was also interesting that he was sitting right next to me when she asked about him.
- She also asked if I had recently gotten another cat, to which I said, yes, Remington. And then she asked if they fought a lot. They do. She said that they weren’t very good friends. Probably true.
- The entire time she made comments about how strong of a personality Chai had, that she was sort of bossy and definitely commanding. Her personality was definitely in line with that.
- One of the strangest things she brought up was a question for me. Did I hate my kitchen? I had just been talking to my roommate a few days prior about how much I hated the countertops in my kitchen. So that was bizarre. Chai didn’t mind the kitchen, apparently, according to her.
- She also asked if I was going on a trip anytime soon. And I said yes, a few, to which she replied Chai wasn’t happy about it. A lot of my family isn’t happy I’m traveling to Yemen in April, so that was strange.
- She said that Chai told her I had a lot of nicknames for her and never really called her by her actual name, which is 100% spot-on. I called her Fluffy, Muffin, Murphy, and about ten others but rarely her name.
- Sonya also asked if I had changed my job recently. I did change jobs while Chai was still alive and started working remotely from home, and she said that Chai really liked when that happened.
- She said Chai told her that I carried a picture of her wherever I went, which I did, she was my screensaver on my phone up until she died.
- She asked if I had big windows in my room. I do have large bay windows and Chai loved them.
- Chai told her that when I got Ghost she wasn’t happy about it and that she thinks he’s pretty stupid, but Chai is happy that I have him to help me feel better.
- She mentioned that Chai and Ghost went nose to nose, which is strange because that is the avatar I have on Instagram. They were always fighting for space on the bed and often ended up sleeping next to one another. She also said Chai would boop him, which she did. She never actually clawed him or slapped him. She’d just sort of pat him with her paw. Boop was a strange choice of words.
- Said that Chai was beautiful and she knew it. Totally spot-on. She was my ice queen. Went on to say that Ghost was pretty, too, but Chai knew she was prettier. But didn’t mention the other pets, who I don’t believe are pretty so that was notable.
- She told me that Chai will come back into a physical form. That she has such a strong personality and that she’s determined for it to be soon.
- What broke me was the final thing she said to me. That Chai wanted me to keep singing the songs I used to make up for her. No one knew about that. I didn’t do it when my roommate was home. I didn’t post it anywhere. It was just something special between Chai and I.
Believe or Don’t Believe
All in all, the skeptic in me wants to pick everything apart, but that defeats the purpose of it all. Sonya was genuine, kind, and some of the things she said about Chai were just so inherently Chai. I truly felt like she was right there with me. Do I believe? I don’t know. But Sonya said Chai is still around watching over me. That she’ll be back in a physical form, that the cat might not have the same personality but the things that count will still be here. I can only dream she’ll find her physical form in her clone. (Which Chai finds hilarious, according to Sonya.)
So. If you’ve lost a loved one or want to connect with a living pet, I do so recommend Sonya Fitzpatrick. I’ve spoken to a plethora of psychics in my life, most of them frauds, and I didn’t get that vibe at all from Sonya. I think she truly wants to help people connect with their loved ones. Believe or don’t believe. That’s how these things go. I’m somewhere in the middle.
