COMMUNICATING WITH PETS EXPLORED AT LIFETREE CAFÉ How pets interact and communicate with humans will be explored at Lifetree Café on Wednesday June 28th at 12:30 at NBLC.The program—titled “What’s Your Pet Trying to Tell You?”—features a filmed interview with Alexa Boyes, a professional animal communicator. “For me, I try to be the voice of the animal and I try and repeat what I hear as nicely as I can,” says Boyes. “Sometimes what animals have to say is not what people want to hear.” During the program, Lifetree Café participants will have an opportunity to share experiences in which an animal has tried to communicate with them.
