When it comes to skeptics I consider myself to be
an expert. My philosophy has always been if it's too good to be
true, it always is. The thought of having someone tell my pet to
stop doing something and have it come true seemed a little
far-fetched to me. I was happily proven wrong and would like to
share my story. My wife and I have a 6 year old Great Dane and an 2
year old Akita/Chow/Shepherd mix. Having two males, they sometimes
competed for territory which meant that I had to clean up the
Arizona room once a week to get the urine smell out. Mary explained
to the dogs that this was inappropriate and they shouldn't urinate
if there is a roof over their heads. The following weekend when it
was time to do my weekly chore of cleaning the Arizona room, I
realized that I didn't need to. There was no urine smell or stains
on the porch. I assumed this was just a coincidence. I was wrong.
It's been over two months and still no urine stains! Another
behavioral issue that we wanted addressed was with the Great Dane.
Even though he is very big and intimidating to most, he was always
skittish when new people came over to the house. When my wife and I
first met, it took him three weeks to warm up to me! When new people
came over to the house he fled outside and he remained there until
everyone left. If he couldn't escape outside he would run to our
bedroom and hide on the bed until the company left. My wife and I
felt so sorry for him when he would remain in our room for hours
upon hours when we would have get-togethers. When Mary came over she
discovered that our Great Dane felt shy. Mary explained to him that
he need not be shy when other people are around and that Mom and Dad
would not let anyone in the house that would harm him. I witnessed
the effects of this when we had a few new friends over last Friday
night. I have a friend who is 6'5" and looks like a linebacker for
the NY Giants. I assumed as soon as he walked in our Great Dane
would run out. To my surprise he didn't; he stood there looked at
this gigantic man walk in our house and then when approached let
this man pet him. It was the most dramatic change of behavior I have
ever seen. Not only did our Great Dane not get spooked when this
company came over, he was friendly and hung out with us all evening!
I want to let everyone know that this skeptic has been proven wrong
and if you have any behavioral issues no matter how minute with your
animals you need to have a consultation with Mary, you won't be
We were having trouble with our dog Mia. Every
time the door was opened she would run out into the street. She
almost got hit by a car. Mary came over and spoke with Mia. She
explained that it was dangerous for her to run out like that. Since
that day with the door left open, Mia has not run out. Mary has
helped us with our African Grey Parrot and her biting. I highly
recommend Mary's services with any concerns you might have with your
Thank you so much for your help in locating the kitten Annabella after she escaped into the the night. This area is rife with bobcat, coyote, and owl and we were fearful she would wander too far, get lost and be killed. Your ability to contact her, and describe to us where she was and that she could see the house with the lights and door open put our minds somewhat at rest. We knew then she was not lost and was nearby and could see the house and would come back in when she was ready to. At 6:30 the next morning she came sauntering in, ate, and went to sleep, totally unfazed by her big night out. We knew she was independent minded! Also your communication with Koster, our other cat, that night helped him realize that we needed him to stay here because of the danger in the dark. He stayed with us even though the doors were left open and even helped us search for the kitten, walking with us and fanning out into the underbrush when we told him to search and returning to us when we called to him. It was was nothing short of incredible. That you made him understand the situation was obvious and amazing. He has since been wary of the darkness and clearly remembers the dangers you described to him. You are gifted, and that you use it to help other beings in danger and need is wonderful thing.
Thank you .
Please consider this a letter of reference for
Mary Ketaily. Ms. Ketaily has been extremely useful in dealing with
my menagerie of assorted animals and their behavioral issues.
Specifically, she has helped me locate a missing cat, which was
picked up by a neighbor assuming it was a stray, giving me a
description of where the cat was and how it was taken by
communicating directly with my cat. Most importantly, she has helped
forge an understanding between my Moluccan Cockatoo and me.
I have known Mary Ketaily for about 5 years. We
kept in touch through the years so I have witnessed the growth of
Mary's business and heard stories of how she has helped pets and
their owners through many difficult situations.
He also would bark incessantly when my neighbor
came home from work, even though he and Lucky have played together.
After the session with Mary he ignored the children playing nearby
and later when a neighbor walked her dog near our window Lucky
barked twice but then calmed down. But most important of all is that
he is so much more at ease in our new surroundings. I am also
grateful that I understand Lucky's behavior better.
I inherited a Siamese cat that I named “Omar”
several years back. He was so timid and it troubled me that I did
not know his history. He began to cough and refused to use his
litter box, so I took him to the vet. The vet could not find
anything wrong; however, I knew things were not right. Mary Ketaily
was referred to me as someone who could help. Mary connected with
Omar through me in a phone conversation and she filled in the gaps
about his former owners and told me to pay attention to his health.
