I personally do not have the experience to state for certain ... but animals certainly do have extra senses, which compensate for their lack of Speech, and human like emotions etc..
Al Koran, makes this amply clear ... In, The Stated ... that there are two Superiors, above all others that Exist in Creation ... Humans, are the Zenith of Creation ... while d' Ginns ... called Genies, in western literature, are the next ... though lower than Humans, In Creation.
It will therefore, be sensible to assume, that animals do have, what we might call some Extra Sensory Faculties ... with which they can Perceive, what we consider the Paranormal phenomena, such as of the d' Ginns ,,,
It may help you understand this phenomenon better, if you knew, that d' Ginns can assume any shape, or form, which we may, or may not see.
