Our links to animals go back a long long
way. And the way we perceive animals is constantly evolving. Today some claim it is possible to communicate with them. This form of so-called “intuitive communication”, born about 20 years ago in the United States is now starting to be recognized and practiced in Europe. Laïla Del Monte is an animal communicator. She has come to Montagnana, a small remote Tuscan village in Italy, because she has heard about an extraordinary cat whose story has travelled the world. The cat is called Toldo and his story began 2 years ago, when his master passed away. Since then, he has gone to the cemetery to visit his master’s grave every day – even several times a day. Come wind, rain or snow, he never misses a visit. Sometimes he brings presents such
as small pieces of wood or twigs. Other times he stays sitting or lying on the grave. Could this extraordinary story illustrate something we have yet to discover? Could animals be capable feeling
emotions? Could they posses a form of intelligence? And, like Toldo, might they experience empathy? If it were true, that Toldo continues to visit his human companions grave out of a sense of gratitude and love? If it were true, that we could recover this universal language, this forgotten communication? If it were true, then we might learn to live in harmony with animals once again. To justly share the benefits for our planet
amongst all. And in all probability, live more at ease with ourselves.
