Do you think animals have feeling?

Alot of people will say no they dont but if they dont how do you explain these animals staying by their owners side when they die or by their animal friend.

  • Of course animals have feelings! Their emotions and thoughts aren't as complex as ours, but they do have basic feelings and thoughts. Anyone who has had a pet cat or dog (or many other animals) can tell tons of stories of their pet showing emotion. It's just hard for some people to accept this because.. well, we like to think humans are special.

  • Yes, yes they do. Whoever told you that they don't must've never had an animal.

  • I think they do. I think it's easier for some people to disregard them as a being because they probably don't want to get close to an animal or feel guilty for eating them. (I eat meat btw, so I'm not pushing veganism on anyone or anything. lol)

  • Yes. It bugs me when people say they don't. Just like when babies are brand-new and people say they can't feel pain....Wt...?
