It might also not be an animal, your guide, or the guide that would be the most active at the moment.
I agree with Lark, simply meditate and, you don't have to fully believe everything you see, but do give it a chance. Trust yourself enough to at least write it down for consideration later.
If you rely on somebody else to find your guide for you, then you might rely on them to transmit messages from your guide to you. That can be exhausting for the other person unless you're paying them, and/or they just like to manipulate you.
Definitely better all around if you meet your guides yourself.
