I Have a Special Connection to Animals.

I could quite possibly be an animal psychic or something close to it. Animals love me just as much as I love them. I've always liked animals more than humans. But here I am being a nurse! Crazy eh?

I know how to soothe them and know just how they want to be scratched. I somehow seem to commune with them. We have an understanding.

Sometimes animals that don't like most people will endear to me. I like to get down on their level and they respect that.

I'd say my favorite are horses and dogs. I love Irish Wolfhounds. I saw one once at a Rennaisance Faire and ran right over to it. I picked up his head and scratched his chin. He just melted. His owners were a bit surprised. These dogs are notoriously docile and I knew this. Still taking a chance with an unknown dog is never a good gamble.

My horse is another story all together!

Best wishes and surround yourself with loving animals. Sometimes they can love you better than your own family.

I can completely empathise with what you say. I too have an uncanny way of getting "problem" animals to behave or relax. I think animals can tell who their friends are by the chemicals we release. We don't realise we're doing it, but with their acute sense of smell they can sense it. I volunteered in an animal shelter for a few years and I saw all sorts of animals come in that were supposedly no good. Dogs in particular. They were just misunderstood. I eventually got myself banned from there because I went into the cage of a dog that was supposed to be destroyed for being aggressive towards humans. <br />
I saw this dog and the way it reacted to people and I knew it was them, not the dog. I eventually got myself banned from there because I had the audacity to enter its "no entry" cage and had the dog (a male rottweiler x malamute) laying on my lap and acting as meek as a kitten. <br />

I agree, sometimes animals make better company than humans.
