I am the same way, animals seem to follow me wherever I go. Black cats, dogs, rabbits, deer galore, turkeys, and yes the crowning glory a bald eagle! A bald Eagle saved us tens of thousands of dollars one time.
We had planned on building a house, we called the developer and didn't hear back, we had our down payment money for the lot. We finally got in touch with the builder. A bald eagle started to build a nest near our lot and the audubon society stopped all building. Exactly one week later we found out that we were going to be relocated by work. If not for that Eagle we would have been out of our lot money!! I have many many other weird "coincidences" regarding animals. A bunny helped me save my neighbors house from a fire!
I am also one of those people that dog owners say "oh my dog doesn't like anyone, but they love me" it happens all the time. A lady that worked at the humane society told me that animals can sense a good soul.
If animals like you, that is a good thing, if they don't like someone you best believe there is a reason for it!

We've had two black cats and a bunny show up at our doorstep in the past year. I'm putting this discussion in Paranormal because I feel this is just a bit strange. These animals may be pets, but they're not my pets. The first time a bunny showed up on our lawn. We live in a semi-rural environment on an island 10 miles by 3 miles in size, about 27 square miles total. Access is by a single narrow bridge, the "Agate Pass Bridge" or by ferry boat to Seattle ten miles across Puget Sound, which is quite cold and deep. This bunny was a floppy eared type--not a wild bunny or jack rabbit. My wife stuffed the bunny in a cat carrier and we took it to an animal refuge site where they took care of it before the coyotes did. We thought little more of it. It had likely been dumped in the woods. Much of the island is still undeveloped forest.
Next a black cat showed up. I thought it was just a stray. It hung around for a couple of days and my wife started talking to it and it responded. (You CAN talk to cats. We had 4 siamese who had their own language (and attitude.)) This time we took the cat to the local vet where we discovered it was chipped. Its owners live off-island in a community about 25 miles away. There is no way that cat, whose name is Spook, ever got to the island on its own. The cat was dumped here the winter before. That means Spook survived an entire winter before he got to us. The owners suggested one of their neighbors with whom they had difficulty had dumped the cat on the island. We chalked this up to good fortune and were happy Spook made it back home.
Last night a black cat appeared at our doorway. I told my wife, "Spook is back." She didn't believe me, of course, but I finally got her to go see. It wasn't Spook, of course, but it was a very friendly young cat who wanted inside. We thought it was from around here and might go home, so we left it outside and went to a party. We got home about 9:00pm and the cat was still on the front porch. It's pretty cold around here right now and I did not want to leave the cat outside over night, so I cracked the door open and in walked the cat like he owned the place. Our two cats were not impressed. We had brought a dog (A dog!) into the house last week for a day, and now this! The next morning all three cats were outside the bedroom door waiting for us to get up. My wife took the cat to the vet, and the cat was chipped. We had already lined up two people who might take the cat, and I admit we were a little disappointed. But we did the right thing.
Now, the issue for me is why have three animals appeared at our doorstep within the last year or so? And I'm thinking this: There is an overall cat and/or animal consciousness that gets the word out. Our house is safe. If you can make it here you will be taken care of. The fact is though cats and dogs are deemed "smart," they simply do not have sufficient synapses in their brains for advanced intelligence. Sorry, but they do not, anecdotal stories notwithstanding. But on the whole they do, and if they have a level of species intercommunications going that could explain this behavior. In other words, it's paranormal behavior we're seeing. This is, of course, total speculation on my part. I really don't know what the issue is, but I'm not believing this is attributable to chance. And we're now waiting for the next visitor.

It was 8pm at night and I heard a weird noise outside, I look out the window and see a very large rabbit. Much larger than the norm, of course I grab my camera and head out. The rabbit hops down this hill. As I am standing on the hill I noticed my neighbors kitchen light is on, which is weird because she is out of town. I call her and she has me go into her house. A realtor left the accents lights on under her kitchen cabinets. They are burning hot, and surely if I wasn't chasing an extra large rabbit at 8pm I would have never seen it. Not only would her house have burnt down, but probably mine too. By the way, never trust a realtor to turn anything off or lock anything, I've had experiences with them "forgetting" to do both.
