anthropomorphism: 

Some do - some don't.

I do and always will.

 

Disney and Pixar has mad a KAAAAAHGILLION dollar fortune out of the idea of attaching human feeling to animals both biological and animated.

 

I for one do it as well. Just ask any of my pets who've passed on.

I don't chastise you for not agreeing with it (totally your business) - please don't chastise others if they do.

I thought it was just a nice way to caption the pics. Oh, well.

 

Do I understand that some people think that we shouldn't live with dogs?

You should do your research, there are many many studies/experts that will disagree with you.

 

Here's one to start you off:

 

Which Emotions Do Dogs Actually Experience? | Psychology Today


@KingstonsMom 

 

I totally agree----

 

This is also from an article in Catster magazine--

 

"Cats, and most mammals feel emotions, although those emotions may be experienced and expressed differently in different species. Some of the different emotions observed and studied in mammals, including cats, are fear, happiness, sadness, curiosity, anger, grief and anxiety."  

 

In fact there was a news story and interviews with veterinarians on pet separation anxiety now that more pet parents who were working from home and are now returning to work....and anxiety is certainly an emotion....

 

And what about dogs and cats that fear thunderstorms and these are pets that lived with the same human all their life so its not based on a bad experience, these are pets that have always been safe inside their homes....

These photos are beautiful, as is this handsome lion!   If you would like to see wildlife and safari adventures live, there is a website that I follow.  Its called WildEarth, Safari Live.  Its based out of the Djuma Game Reserve, part of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve in South Africa.  They focus on connecting people with African Wildlife.  They have live drives, which take place twice a day in Sabi Sands, Pridelands, Tswalu, Phinda and Ngala. 

They have live drives that you can watch on your phone or computer.  Its every morning and evening (Central Africa Time).  I have seen lions, giraffes, elephants, beautiful species of different birds, impalas, and so much more.  They guides are very informative and fun to listen to.

All young male lions are forced our of their prides by the time they're about 1-2 years old--you can see their manes starting to grow in, and that's normal. (And only about 50% of lions grow to adulthood.)

They sometimes form "bachelor" groups and/or eventually find a female, reproduce, and start prides of their own.

I agree with those who get irritated at humans projecting their own emotions onto animals, although I'm sure animals have their own kind of feelings.


Yes. Different animals are forced out by their mothers. I stayed at a vacation rental where a 2 year old bear had just been pushed out by his mom and kind of didn't know what to do. He just played hide and seek in the brush and seemed very playful yet he did growl loudly and was scaring people so a park ranger was called. He said it happens and it would leave and learn to take care of itself. It weighed over 200 pounds and I was afraid of it.
