Pet owners lined up throughout the day at Petco on Sunday to pay $20 to have a pair of strangers tell them the thoughts and feelings of their pets, both alive and dead.
And while some might consider that absurd, the animal lovers who sought information seemed to think it was money well spent.
People came to find out if their pets are happy, healthy and, if adopted, whether they have been abused in the past. Some wanted to connect with their past pets to find out how they're doing in the afterlife. Many left emotional, even in tears.
"It was really enjoyable and informative," said Jefferson City resident Artie Langston. "There were a couple of amazing moments (when) things we suspected were confirmed."
