In America, we have a Puritan foundation to our culture that espouses the philosphy that people are responsible for themselves in the eyes of God and their neighbors. We also have a very distinct instinct towards individual privacy, so often feel that to get in people's faces to help them about their individual situations is intrusive and, frankly, none of our business...I"m not saying this attitude is right, I"m saying this attitude exists in some form or another with all americans but with animals, we feel none of these cultural limitations....animals have no right to privacy, we can get up into their grill and take action however way we see fit, we feel an empowerment to act in their behalf and that encourages feelings of empathy....maybe that what it is but I'm not betting the house on it.

I honestly don't know, but I don't think it's a bad thing. I have 2 dogs and 3 cats and they are my best friends. You just can't trust people, but when my dog snuggles up next to me or my cat sits on my lap and purrs, all is right with the world.
