Animal Souls- Can an Animal Be Your Soul mate?

How can an animal be your Soul mate?
The dictionary defines a soul mate as "one of two beings compatible with each other in disposition, point of view, or sensitivity for whom you have a deep affinity." Some believe that a soul mate is a being with whom we have shared other lifetimes.
Below are 2 beautiful  descriptions that say it all!:
A soul mate is:
1. “When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we're pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we're safe in our own paradise. Our soul mate is someone who shares our deepest longings, our sense of direction. When we're two balloons, and together our direction is up, chances are we've found the right person. Our soul mate is the one who makes life come to life." --Richard Bach
2. A being with “whom we feel profoundly connected, as though the communication and communing that take place between us were not the product of intentional efforts, but rather a divine grace. This kind of relationship is so important to the soul that many have said there is nothing more precious in life." --Thomas Moore

Can we have more than one animal soul mate?
YES!!!  A soul mate is a portion of all you are.  That’s why you can have several.  However you can only have one Twin Flame which is your EXACT match and your soul’s other half!
