I Talk to Animals

...even if they don't always talk back! 393 People

    Crazy? Me??? Perhaps

    We all know animals don't speak human language but no harm done if we talk to them. Right now I only have hamsters but even my hamsters know whether it's me or someone else. After I wake up, I check on them and call them 'my babies' and say goodbye when I leave for work (nobody's...

    Yep...

    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.

    Who's A Big Pig?

    When I'm on my own I talk to my guinea pig like an ordinary person and I talk about ordinary things, but as soon as someone comes around I start using a baby voice and just say things like "Who's a big pig? Who's my baby boy?" ^___^ It just happens! I can't help it! ^_^;Actually...

    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 especially enjoy talking to my cats.

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

    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...

    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...

    I like talking to animals. They don't judge you on what you say, they provide comfort and a peaceful state not only in mind but in body. If I don't feel like writing I will talk to my cats while they cuddle up for attention. I've even talked to a few animals at the zoo just for...

    A Habit

    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...

    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 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...

    I Reasoned With a Crowd of Steers

    I was on a hike one day when I had to walk through a field of young bulls.  I walked slowly through the field, hoping not to attract too much attention to myself, but they soon saw me and made chase.  I did not run, knowing this would only make them worse, so carried on...

    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?

    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...
