THE NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
DOES YOUR DOG NEED A PET PSYCHIC?
I have been interviewed by the NY Daily News. Click On Photo to read the article 🙂
I, Laura Stinchfield The Pet Psychic, was on MTV’s The Girl Code with Comedian Jessimae Pelusa and her dog Fozzie.
Luca and I on KTLA 5 Morning News
It was great to be at KTLA 5. Such nice people!
Luca (my poodle) was scared of the swivel chair. He has never sat on one before. I prepped him before the segment that if he gets nervous to talk to Stormy my 13 year old Aussie dog. He was really nervous. My friends Ai and Kendra where off to the side with Stormy. So he kept looking to Stormy for his wise advice. Stormy could not be on the segment because he is too big to sit on the chair.
Some of you may have remember that recently Luca has discovered himself in the mirror. Click Here To See That Post. In front of the news desk there were three monitors that showed the broadcast. Luca saw himself himself in them and got confused. All and all I was very proud of him his first time on TV 🙂
Thank you KTLA 5 for having us on the Morning News and for being so wonderful during our time at your studio!
Thank you Ai and Kendra for coming to support me and for taking care of the Stormy and Luca when I was busy. You are the best!
I will be on KTLA 5 Morning News this Sunday at 7:35 am pst.

Fair Meeting March 22nd
Orange County Fair Board voted 6 to 1 to ban elephant rides at the fair – effective immediately!
Thank you Alison Stanley & all that spoke!
Fair and Tender Elephants
by Laura Stinchfield
Animal Trainer and Pet Psychic at thepetpsychic.com
On Thursday, March 22, there will be a meeting of the Orange County Fair board, which will talk about discontinuing the elephant rides provided by the company Have Trunk will Travel.
Have Trunk Will Travel owns the elephant that was in the movie Water for Elephants. This company has been in the news due to shocking video footage that appears to show gross, inhumane training methods. These methods include beating elephants with bullhooks and electrically shocking them to get them to obey commands.
I imagine that the argument for offering elephant rides at a county fair is because we humans enjoy this activity – we as individuals are in awe and in gratitude that such beautiful massive creatures allow us on their backs. As a child, I rode several elephants. I have felt their steady sway beneath my body, stroked my fingers over their sensitive toes, and entwined my arms with their hairy expressive trunks. I remember grasping onto my mother’s soft hands as we walked away and telling her, “The elephants are so sad. Did you see their eyes?” When I close my eyes today I can still see them – wrinkled and dull-looking, a bit like my old babysitter’s eyes after she had a heart attack and told us she couldn’t babysit us any longer.
Today we might argue that we allow this cruel pastime for the pleasure of the children. But if we ask children today to look into the eyes of these elephants and to tell us how they feel, the children will almost always respond with phrases like, “The elephant is sad,” “Is the elephant mad?” or “I am scared.”It does not matter to me how the company Have Trunks Will Travel responded to the allegations that they abuse their animals with harsh training methods. The fact is that the humane training of exotic animals is a very new field; shocking elephants in their genitals and beating them with bull hooks are the methods most experienced animal handlers are accustomed to using.
Almost all of Have Trunks Will Travel’s elephants are over 30 years old. That means that there is a high probability that these animals were trained inhumanely. When you train an animal with abuse, the animal does not have time to process new information; this leads to confusion in taking on new stimulation in the present and in the future. These animals can have post-traumatic stress syndrome.
The elephants’ greatest sense is their sense of smell. Imagine the stress of trying to decipher all the smells at a county fair. Perfumes, unnatural foods, the rides, gas and oil … Can we guarantee that a smell, sight, or sound at a county fair will not bring back an old memory that will elicit an elephant to react into fight or flight mode? Indeed, all you have to do is Google elephant attacks and you will see numerous elephants exploding at zoos, circuses, and fairs.
What if, after 30 years, one of the Have Trunks Will Travel elephants just can’t take it anymore? What if an elephant just snaps, and takes off with someone on his or her back? No company can guarantee the safety of onlookers.
Elephants are the largest land mammals on earth. They are designed to live their lives in the wildlands of Asia and Africa. Can we really convince ourselves that animals created to roam great distances rooting the earth and eating the bark off of trees – either as loners (the males) or involved in close and complex social interactions (the females) – enjoy carrying complete strangers around a crowded smelly fair?
Our common sense will tell us they do not. But most adults must have become so busy in their lives that they have lost their empathetic eye for sadness and anger in others. Or perhaps these same adults make fantasies in their heads that these elephants are happy – and that the younger generations also delight in this cruel, miserable pastime. This is not based on reality.
If you have any questions on this matter, take your children to see these animals live and up-close, and ask your children, “What do you think of the elephants?” Then listen and take to heart their answers.

Video of my session with standard poodle Simone in Atlanta and her dad E Vincent Martinez.
In June of 2009, E. Vincent Martinez launched fashionado.net. The fashion inspired website has grown to include celebrity interviews, movie reviews, travel and entertainment. Fashionado also follows Martinez through all of his adventures and fabulous fashion parties. In 2010, fashionado was named Best Fashion Blog by the Atlanta Fashion Awards and it also made the list of the Top 100 Fashion Bloggers Worldwide by Sparkah, a marketing firm in NYC.
Most recently (summer 2011) E. Vincent Martinez was named one of the best dressed Atlantans by the Atlanta Journal Constitution’s Access Atlanta.
I had a pet psychic session with Vincent Martinez and his standard poodle Simone. Vincent recently blogged about this session on Fashionado.net
Vincent wrote in his blog post:
“Lick, yawn and blink,” instructed pet psychic Laura Stinchfield to my black standard poodle, Simone. Also known as an animal communicator, we spent nearly thirty minutes with Laura.
Earlier in the day, Laura Stinchfield did the Atlanta media circuit with appearances on radio and morning tv shows. She encountered a skeptic or two along the way, though probably just for ratings sake.
So, I went into this meeting with an open mind. I was actually excited and eager to learn what my dog might be thinking or feeling!
Laura said that Simone’s intelligence is strong and it forces her to over-think everything which causes her to be overly cautious and fearful of her surroundings. [Made perfect sense to me.] That’s where the instructions/homework to “lick, yawn and blink” came to play. Those actions are “calming signals” as explained in the video. Laura asked Simone to enjoy just being a dog.
Of course, I was curious about the communication process. You’ll notice in the video that Laura gets close to Simone’s face and whispers things that only she can hear. They were completely focused on one another. At times Laura would speak out loud for both of us to hear. I was amazed with Simone’s captivated behavior. Never has this happened with a stranger.
Laura explained how she and animals communicate. She discovered at an early age that she could talk with her pets through the ability to see images that are in their head [that tell a story]. Additionally, Laura can hear their thoughts… but she added that pets will not betray an owners trust by revealing private moments or situations. A comforting thought!
At the end of the session, Simone gave Laura a lick on the face. I was shocked. She rarely licks. That was all the evidence I needed to know that something had happened. That a connection had been made.
Are you wondering if Simone’s behavior changed after the session with Laura? The answer is yes. Yes because I left with a better understanding of how to relate to my pet. I wouldn’t mind a follow up session. Laura may be returning to Atlanta early in the new year so I may get that chance. And you!

I turned on the news this morning which I never do and have heard that there are over 50 exotic animals free from their enclosures in Ohio. They caretaker found dead in his house.
Among the animals bears (grizzly and black), all species of big cats, wolves, camels,…)
I ask the animals, “What happened?”
Grizzly bear: “There was a woman and her friend that came through in a caged atv and started to let us free. She cut the locks of our cages and she told us to run. she was laughing as we all ran out of our cages. At first we confused and then we were happy until the big cats started to fight. Many of them where hissing and growling at each-other and there was at least one death and the cats where dragging the others around. The wolves ran the farthest in their pack and I am sure that many of them are freed with out being killed. There are two more types of cats. The timid ones that stayed in their cages frightened to get out and then the others that ran into the forest to hide. There are some that are still free. I can see them in my mind hiding behind shrubs and laying low in fear from the gun shots.
There have been so many men that have come in in truck loads they have opened fired and have been cheering each-other when they have made a kill.
Only a few of them are wiping their eyes in tears of the carnage but no one is noticing those men because the other men are having fun hunting us down and killing us.
They are no better than the man who have kept us here.
The woman let us free because many of us have begun to starve. They have been feeding us less deer and she knew something drastic needed to happen in order for this to stop. She could no longer see us suffering anymore. She did what she thought would be the fastest way to put us out of our misery. So many of us have been sick and starving.”
Bengal tiger: “I have been shot and wounded on my leg and am in the woods up high hiding. They are coming after us with dogs. I saw my mother fight and kill a larger African Lion that was always spraying our cage. He was in the cage next to us and my mother never liked him.
The smaller cats are in the trees also. Many of them will not be found. They are good at camouflage and the dogs do not know how to smell them different than a bob cat. This is my opinon.
I am too large and my leg is dripping. I know I will die because I can feel them closer.
The gun shots have made us run farther away than we would normally run. One cat has killed a baby deer and another a small dog. I have seen it from this tree. We have always wanted to hunt. There have been men that have been hunting us that have walked under some cats and even a cat with a kill with them in the tree.
We all know that we will die and we are ok with it. I speak for only some of us. I can feel all there feelings like a mass wave.
Our freedom finially has come with more fear and smell of death than we could imagine but we do not want to feel the hunger in our bellies anymore.
We were dying and the woman who set us free did it out of love. She knew there was no other way to end our suffering. She did not think that that we would live. She did not want to see us caged anymore. She let snakes free too. This compound had so many animals free. There is a giraffe as well – In a dark barn. There are other animals shaking with in fear.
I may come down soon and let them shoot me.”

I have been asked by several people to talk to the polices horses that were being ridden into the crowd at Occupy Wall Street in NY City on Oct. 15, 2011.
I have chosen this video because it filmed up close to the horses. Though there are other videos that show one horse falling to his knees and stumbling to get back up before he is ridden back into the front line and back into the crowd.
Here are the voices of the some of the horses.
Horse Number One (horse being pet) says, “I have had to chase down people before. I have seen people on drugs and people with guns. I have seen it all. That day was one of the saddest days in my life. I didn’t see drugs or guns. I just saw people who were hurting inside and I did not understand why we were being forced into the crowd. I did not understand why there was anger to so many people who are clearly passionate. I did my job because that is what I always do. Though I can not help but recall the anger of my rider while so many people thought I was beautiful and brave. It does not make sense to me. I have seen my rider rightfully jump off of me and take people down who are bad. I am glad that this did not happen and we did not do that much harm. I still do not understand. It is the intention and direction of energy that I understand in people. The people my officer has gone after before have been confused, possessed almost, angry and dirty. These people were just sad and I dont know… they seem to want something that… seems right… but I dont understand what that is.”
Horse Number Two Horse that fell says, “I have fallen before I am fine. I can fall and lift myself up. It was my fault. I lost myself. I got confused. I didn’t understand what we were doing and I spun around so that I wouldn’t hurt people. I have never been told to hurt people before. It is not like my officer. He does not want to hurt people. I dont understand what happened. I do not understand why so many people where in one place. They did not seem like they wanted to steal or that they wanted to fight. I dont understand the cause. I have been trying to figure out why my officer pushed me into the crowd and I dont think he knows either.”
Horse Number Three (Black Horse) says, “One time my officer and I went down an alley and were shot at. I knew what a gun noise was. I had been warned. The bullet didn’t hit me but it scared both my officer and I.
I will never forget the smell of his fear. He had no fear the other day when we were in the crowd. So I did not have any fear. I couldn’t understand why we were going into the crowd but I thought that maybe he did. But I dont think he did. The people they seemed angry but in a non threatening way. When I close my eyes to sleep, I feel my rider spurring me into a barricade and into people. I feels like a strange dream. I hated that I stepped on a few people. When they got out of the way they touched me softly. It was so different than the other people we go after. It was like all the nice people on the street where all in one place and the officers didn’t like that. I dont understand.”
I would also like to share my feeling towards this incident with the horses. By reading their body language they looked extremely brave and calm. I thought about war horses and perhaps they were like this. The NY City horses are strong, athletic, young and confident. The New York City Police Horses knew that they had a job that sometimes would put them in great danger.
I watched on the video them licking their lips to calm themselves while holding their heads high to keep a good eye on the crowd. I watched their ears move in different directions surveying their surroundings.
The horse that fell, I noticed as he was being spurred into the crowd that he fought with his officer. He would pull back and the officer would spur and kick him forward. I watched in his body language him get confused. I watched him not agree with his rider (maybe the first time) and not know what to do with the conflict. It was in that moment that he shook his head back and forth to get away from the bit and “lost” himself. I watched his eyes loose focus and get what I call the crazy border collie look. When their heads and eyes are in a million different direction and their eyes are not focusing on anything at all . In this an animals brain crashes. He did what he should do when his brain crashes, change direction and recollect himself. That is when he spun around to flee. His rider fought him so he tripped. He got up like he said he did and pulled himself together fast. Taking a breath and starting over. And his rider headed him right back to the front line again. The horse stood collected.
I watched the horses being pet by people as they were pushed further into the crowd. The horses barely flinched or accepted the pets welcoming. I noticed the contrast of crowds gentle strokes and the police officers abrupt shoves.
It was clear to me that the horses were not scared of the crowd. They reminded me of a how one of my good guy friends in high-school with be while protecting me for some reason. Holding their ground. Not truly taking sides, but would assertively do so when the necessary time came.
I watched the video once with little emotion. Then a second time I watched it getting a good look at the horses and their eyes so that I could talk to them. The third time I watched again calling out to them to see which one would like to speak.
Then I started to cry. When this happens I always feel a little displaced from myself. It is not always my tears that flow through me. It sometimes is the animals, or the dead being, or the crowd, or an individual. My telepathy receptors integrate others feelings into my body so my body reacts. Its not really me.
I took a deep breath with tears breaching my eyes and I asked myself, “Whose tears are these?”
and all I heard myself say is, “I am so sorry that we humans put you in situations like this. I am so sorry.”
My tears were my tears because the horses could not understand the situation. Animal consciousness is vast. Animals can understand complex issues, but this incident made no sense to them. Their officers confused them. To the horses the officers seemed to be acting out of character and this makes me wonder how kind people in authority can change to acting out anger with raw emotion. Clear communication somehow gets lost and the worst of people can bubble to the surface.
Do I feel like these horses are OK? Yes, I think they are fine.
Do I feel like they were put in a situation that was not right? Yes, I feel like their loyalty and acts of service has been dishonored.
Do I feel like there is a place for police horses? Yes, if they are respected and cared for humanely.
I feel like there is a part of the horses innocence that has been destroyed here. They were forced to walk and trample into a crowd of kind people. I think that alone can trick and confuse any being.
Do I believe these horses know right from wrong? I do.
Do I believe the believe this was wrong? Yes, I do
What can YOU do?
Look at the horses images. Hold them in your mind and send them love. Thank them for their service and tell them its OK to be confused. It didn’t make sense. Its OK. Tell them they were brave. Tell them you are proud of them. And then imagine only the best scenarios for them in their future.
