On talking - and listening - to animals

"Some people talk to animals. Not many listen though. That's the problem."
A. A. Milne
Winnie the Pooh's creator sure knew his stuff, and his words resonate in my mind rather powerfully as I think about where this planet is headed, and who's doing the drunken driving. I wonder what our furry friends would say if they could talk. I often look at our dog and wonder the same thing. Do you?

All the time! It's in a sad sad state this world of ours.

Absolutely! Just about every second of every day!

I'm pretty sure I don't want to hear anything my cat would say to me. The physical abuse is more than sufficient to express her thoughts.

Yep! I think about this all time. Whenever man and wild animal cross paths, the animal is worse off because of it.

If cats could talk to us, they probably wouldn't...
