    I think it would be arrogant of me to apply human thoughts to animals, but I am sure they are cautious of us.  I think they have every right to be.

    1. andromida profile image61
      andromidaposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Yeah,being cautious is a kind of animal instinct for survival the way we are about other animals or even to ourselves.smile

  4. Eaglekiwi profile image79
    Eaglekiwiposted 8 years ago

    They love us and hate us

    Love is because some of us bend over backwards to please their every whim

    Hate us because we change their environment ,which means they starve to death.

    Truth  is,  animals  dont form governments ,organise wars, cheat on each other, lie ,and murder, they are our servants.

    1. tantrum profile image59
      tantrumposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Only pets are servants, and that's because they don't have any choice

      1. Eaglekiwi profile image79
        Eaglekiwiposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        We (humans) can train wild animals. Build fences around them if we want. Develop poisons to kill them. Humans can manipulate where an animals environment wherethey live,how they live etc -servants /slaves to humans.

        What do you mean they dont have any choice,take away their food and they would make choices.

      Animals have their own social structure.But sometimes I wonder if they really fall in love.

      1. Eaglekiwi profile image79
        Eaglekiwiposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        They definately bond ,but its more instinct than emotions,IMO.

    I think they don't know what to make of us, and are often afraid of us (that is those who are not seeing us as dinner).   smile

    I think some of them think, "ooo I want to eat them humans." Let me rephrase that. They DO think it. Mosquitoes are prime thinkers of that thought.

    Maybe we're not important enough for animals to think about.  Perhaps they go about their day and night as they do, not a flicker of a thought about humans crossing their minds.  smile

    I'll tell you a story :

    A very, very long time ago, in what we europeans call "new worlds", men and animals lived in good company. Though men preferred to chat with monkeys and vice-versa, the other animals were never excluded from a conversation and often shared meals together...

    Then, europeans landed on those shores with their wood hull vessels.

    Some men came out of the jungle to meet them and started to chat with them.
    Monkeys and the others, just flew to hide in the forest, refusing to communicate with the new visitors.

    Europeans then reduced native men to slavery for hudreds of years and made them work very, very hard.
    Monkeys and the other animals never suffered such a fate.
    hehehe

    What can I say?! But they might think that how stupid these humans are, killing each other over dumbest reasons, they might also be amazed over the huge buildings, bridges we humans have made. well, who knows if they can even think. lol

      I think chimps,monkeys and their other family members talks a lot about our behavior.

    I think they are often shocked, often let down very badly, and worse! Many have to learn that humans are not to be trusted and are often not friends at all but vicious beasts that will be cruel to you or kill you!

    I'm currently interviewing: 1 Snail - 1 Budgie - 2 Sheep & a House Fly. lol

    So far it looks quite positive from the Snail.
    But the House Fly is a bit nervous that it will get swotted answering questions! lol
