I Talk to Animals

...even if they don't always talk back! 414 People

    The other day I was cleaning

    and fileting some salmon,pretty focused on the task,a bit out of practice,paying attention to the sweetly sharp and potentially deadly blade,half-whistling a dimly remembered little Irish tune when the cat interjected: "mrrowwwr,meowrrrmmmrrrr? roumnnn? mrooowwrrr?" or...

    I think they appreciate it, not just animals, inanimate objects too. It makes me feel better.

    Unofficial Pets

    I don't have any pets but every time I go to Wal Mart I take time to go by the fish and talk to them. I'm not quite sure why I have started doing this because I never liked the idea of having fish as pets but now, it doesn't seem like such a bad idea. I don't use a baby voice or...

    I just realized this when I caught myself saying to a bumblebee that: "I'm not a flower".  And it seemed that the bumblebee understood me, because it left me alone and went for the flowers.

    New to this... I can talk with animals. It's not language as far as sound or English, but more like images and concepts. Feeling is sometimes involved, but I don't know how much they receive/understand. It always takes concentration, but it varies from animal to animal. Any ideas...

    I always talk to animals,

    but I have a dog who mostly understands me. When she looses a toy I'll tell her to find it. She always looks but she gets distracted I'll tell her she's not looking hard enough and she's search every nook and cranny she thinks of. It's great. I don't even need to gesture or...

    My Cat

    When my cat was still alive I would talk to her all the time. She would just look back up at me like I was crazy. Which I probably was, because I was talking to a cat. But she was excellent at nonverbal communication and could always make me smile. She's the one that defined...

    Speaking To The Animals

    Of course, I speak to animals. They nearly always communicate back through their actions, or maybe the way they look at you with their eyes. My cat is an outside cat for the most part and when I go outside, he comes up and pets my leg with his body. I had a donkey I talked to for...

    Communication

    I think that body language and physical contact is an important part of communicating. My cat loves to hold my hand. My cats love to talk to me. I repeat the same words and sentences to them and can only hope they can connect the feeling to it.

    I talk to animals. But sometimes my voice

    changes when I do. It's a habit picked up from my mom when I was a kid. When I talk to my cat my voice goes into a higher pitch. When I talk to dogs it goes into a lower pitch. Does anyone else change their voice when talking to animals?

    They don't seem to give a hoot. And how can I stay mad at them given they always look so sweet and innocent.

    I'm always talking to my cats and any animal that crosses my path. I really do think that they respond to humans talking. When they respond back to my comments, I sometimes know what they are saying. I love how excited they get when I talk to them, maybe 'cause humans don't...
