The Vet Who Talks to Animals

Author: Prof. Lee, Si-Chen

I. Examples of Direct Conversations with Animals

On January 1, 2004, Ms. T's second master in the spirit world interrupted our finger reading experiment in an unusual manner. After learning his identity and being accepted as his pupil, Ms. T began to meditate daily and practiced her techniques in communicating with animals. By the end of that year, Ms. T had already grasped the basic skills and could talk with certain animals.

The following are conversations between pets, brought by students learning Human Potential Project Course, and Ms. T on December 24, 2004:

(I) Conversations with a turtle:

Question: What is your name? Response: (no response)
Question: How old are you? Response: I'm in my twenties. . (could not comprehend)
Question: Are you male or female? Response: I think I'm female.
Question: How is your living environment? Response: It's okay.
Question: Is there anything you would like to tell your owner? Response: I would like a mate.

It has turned out that its owner has a pair of sea turtles, one male and one female, but this tortoise is all alone.

One week later, according to its owner, the behaviors of this tortoise has changed after they went home. It no longer retracts its head into its shell when petted, but rather, holds its head out to be closer to people.

(II) Conversations with a five-month-old puppy

Question: What is your name? Response: Be…be (The owner replies that it's called "Bobe")
Question: What do you like to eat? Response: Hard things.
Question: What did you have for lunch? Response: Nothing. (Owner says it is fed twice per day, in mornings and at night)
Question: How is your living environment? Response: It's okay.
Question: Is there anything you would like to tell your owner? Response: I want to go out and play.
Question: How many people are there in your family? Response: Many.
Question: Can you bark three times? Response: (barked once)

At this point, seeing that Ms. T could talk with her puppy, the owner brought up the following request:

Owner's request: You need to go to the toilet at the same spot every time. Response: I don't know where that spot is!
Owner: Tell the puppy to do its business on the newspaper. Response: I don't know what newspaper is.
I showed some newspaper to the dog, asking it to watch carefully. Response: Fine! (Ms. T thought the dog didn't mean it)

As expected, the dog's toilet training had not improved.

Question: What do you like to eat? Response: Big, black ones that are not round.
Question: Is there anything left on your plate? Response: No! I ate everything!
Question: How do you feel? Response: my hind leg is uncomfortable.
Question: How is your living environment? Response: My hind leg is uncomfortable. It's uncomfortable.

After careful examination, the hamster had fractured its hind leg. No wonder it was in such distress.

(IV) Asking a Dutch Rabbit to Perform

One time, a student brought a lost Dutch rabbit who showed up at his garden. The rabbit was very close to his family. We asked Ms. T to communicate with the rabbit.

To prove that the rabbit could understand Ms. T, we asked Ms. T to give the rabbit commands. The rabbit said it could wash its face with its palms; hence, the first command was for the rabbit to wash its face. The attempt was successful. Nevertheless, it might be because the rabbit enjoyed washing its face and had carried out this behavior on its own rather than being commanded to. Therefore, the second command was for the rabbit to give Ms. T a kiss. It also worked! One week later, the student had reported in class that the Dutch rabbit grew much closer to its owner, and would rub its body against the owner.

II. Skills Exhibited After Becoming a Vet in 2013

After Ms. T acquired a veterinarian license in California in 2013, I invited her to give a speech at the School of Veterinary Medicine in NTU on March 6, 2014. At that time, the veterinary department that had previously rejected her had become an entire school of its own. Ms. T named six cases to explain phenomenon she had observed in treating animals, including a case where X-ray had failed to diagnose a tennis ball that was stuck in the esophagus of a dog, which had swallowed the ball. The problem was quickly solved after she inquired the dog. A cat suffering from prolonged coughing turned out to be upset about a toy that was swept to a corner from house cleaning.

Then the animal hospital and students had separately shown Ms. T their pets. A groundhog had not eaten for a week, and its owner was very worried. After Ms. T's inquiry, it was found that the groundhog was suffering from dental issues. A house cat brought by a student was constantly meowing. And through Ms. T's inquiry, it was found that the cat had recently given birth to three kittens, and it was merely teaching its kittens. The owner immediately testified that the cat had indeed just given birth to three kittens. This also indicates a shocking finding: that cats understand the numerical concept of "three." The fictional character, Dr. Dolittle, who understands and can talk with animals, is now walking among us. It is so exciting to see what this means for veterinarian science and what the future will hold for this discipline.
