CARROLL GARDENS — Do you like this brand of pet food? What do you think of my new girlfriend? And why do you pee outside the litter box?

These are just a few questions you may have asked your pet, but have never gotten a clear response. (Aside from possibly "meow" or "woof," that is). 

Enter Sue Pike, an animal communicator who says she can help you talk to your furry friend. Pike will be available for consultations during the Bark Avenue Adopt-A-Thon at Carroll Park on Sunday, April 24 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

"It's mind to mind, heart to heart, soul to soul communication from person to animal," she said during an interview with DNAinfo New York last week.

Pike will be primarily focusing on adoptable animals during Sunday's event, which will include shelters and rescue groups like Animal Care & Control, Sugar Mutts and Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue.

But if time permits, she will also make room for your pet if there's a specific question on your mind.

According to Pike's website, some of the common questions she's asked are: Is there anything I can do to make you happier? Have we been together in other lifetimes? Was there a particular toy or food you enjoyed before I adopted you?

Pike described a recent encounter with a black and brown terrier-like dog who, without prompting, told Pike, "My human needs to relax more and play more," she recalled.

"He was really concerned about her," she said. "They're a lot smarter than people give them credit for."

While Pike will be available in person at Carroll Park, she usually does her consultations over the phones.

"Fluffy is hearing me telepathically," she said. "No, they don't have to be on speaker phone."

Pike also practices "reiki" on animals, a Japanese technique to help reduce stress, though she cannot diagnose medical conditions. 

Pike was featured on "Late Night: Seth Meyers." Her interview begins at 2:49.
