Real Name: Sonya Fitzpatrick
Case: Unusual Phenomenon
Location: Conroe, Texas
Date: 1940s to present
Details: Sonya Fitzpatrick was born profoundly deaf in Britain during World War II, and grew up in fear and silence, so she turned to animals for comfort, and eventually communication. She began talking to her dogs, cats, geese, and they talked back telepathcially. She, at first assumed that all children can communicate with animals, until she told her family, and they believed that she was something special. But then on Christmas day, one of her geese that she talked to was cooked, so she stopped talking to animals for several years, and also became a vegetarian. In 1994, she claims that St. Francis spoke to her about her gift of speaking to animals. She then began communicating with animals around Houston, Texas, hearing their emotional, physical, and spiritual concerns, and diagnosing their illnesses. She claims that she sends pictures to the animals and that they send pictures back to her. Veternarian Benny Zacek is amazed by Sonya's skills and can vouch for her diagnostic ability. Sonya also helped a horse that had head pains, and she discovered that he had pieces of metal in his head. She can also reunite people with lost pets just by looking at a picture of the missing animal, and help people learn more about their deceased pets. Although some were at first skeptic of her claims, several years and seven thousand clients later, she is famous worldwide and is believed by most people. She has a Houston talk show where she talks to pets over the phone, and continues to work with pets to this day.
