I love stories about animal emotions.

Some years ago, there was a local homeless man in my neighborhood who owned a dog. They would always share their meals together, 50%/50%. When the man had money, he used to go to drink at the same bar all the time. It was a small, local bar and the bar-tender always let him bring the dog inside.

One day, the homeless man collapsed in an alley from a heart attack. His dog ran from the alley all the way to the bar (which was far away) and pulled on the bar-tender's pants with his mouth. The dog guided the bar-tender to the alley, where he found the homeless man. He was able to call for help and save his life.

Don't be ridiculous. It only looks like the cat is trying to revive the other cat. Anyone who studies cat culture knows that the cat on top is in fact trying to steal the soul of the other cat.

I wonder when the "poor polar bear on a chunk of ice " video will pop up on ATS.

so you have witnessed animals displaying emotion and intelligence, and in the very same conversation freely admit they are a reasonable source of food for you?
Yes, although the animals I was speaking about are not part of my diet, I don't eat cats or dogs.


do you not care or not understand?
I care, there's no reason for cruel treatment of any animal or for ignoring or despising animal's feelings


i mean, i assume since your on a computer using the internet, that you arent living in a cave, or having to hunt to survive. why continue to eat animals that suffer a fate similar to the ones in the videos?
I don't see what's the relation between living in a cave and eating animals, we are omnivorous regardless of where we live.

And I continue to eat animals because I need to, some of the nutrients we need can only be found in animals, and the animals I eat do not suffer a fate similar to the ones in the videos, unless you are talking about the dead ones, that, as far as I know, do not care for their living friends.

You guys.... I hate to kill the topic, but that cat wasn't trying to revive the other cat... it was in heat and humping the dead cat!

My male cat does this all the time on his favorite sleeping blanket. He will put part of the blanket in his mouth and start "kneading" with his paws while his hind legs and rear end are "spazzing" out, almost twitching, and it's back is arched over... Like dry humping a blanket...

I have to agree with this satement- our cat shows the same actions.
The cat make sexual advances to his dead mate- just watch closely from 40 to 50 secs

Um....I think it's you that doesn't know much about cats. My 12 year old spayed female does the same thing when she jumps on my lap. She's hardly in heat trying to hump me. She's just in her cuddly "pet me" mood.

Male cats don't go into heat. Female cats don't hump things. Male cats firmly and very violently bite female cats by the back of the neck to hold them down, they don't "knead" them with their paws.


In regard to the video, it's so sad.
My mom had two cats. One was about 6 when she got the second one as a kitten. The older cat died about 3 years ago at the ripe old age of 19. She buried him in the woods and the younger cat laid down on his grave for 2 days and nights.

I have to disagree with you. I have had male cats and I've seen them 'hump' blankets and stuffed animals before. Whenever they do this--sorry to be blunt--they hump with their genitals touching the object.

This cats pelvis never touched the other cat.

are you serious people ?!?!?! i am amazed at the people on here who have cats, and think that this cat was trying to revive it ..... i dont have a cat myself but the first thing i thought of was that, one it was a male cat and two there is a small part in the video where it looks as if the cat was trying to mate with dead cat .. go watch it again people and research how a male cat mates with a female cat ....

p.s pardon my spelling and ummm dont burn me to bad ...




peace

Damn! What can you say about such a scene?. It surprises many of us when animals step out of their natural instincts, especially those egotistical humans with a superiority complex. They are trying to come up the mindless arguments trying to debunk the undeniable. Who knows, maybe we’re just witnessing evolution in action. Animals bonding with humans also develop their sense of personality and emotion. Nonetheless, I’m convinced some animals have more souls than some humans.

Don’t know is this video have been posted here. On a lighter note, another bizarre scene of animal behavior. Is that scene really what it looks like?

I'm on your side. I love animals more than people sometimes, but I still eat meat. I started only eating local or free range meat due to the cruel and abusive conditions other cows, chicken, pigs endure before and at the time of their death. Others might call it hypocritical, but I see no harm in eating meat especially when one takes care to make sure that the living conditions of the animals one has as part of their natural diet is not inconsistent with respect for that animal.

Animals eat other animals that are carnivores or omnivores. They aren't cruel. It's the circle of life. Humans are part of that circle. Someone can say that the same standard shouldn't be applied to animals as humans, but then again, we're in a thread discussing how animals have the same emotions and feeling as humans. If one agrees with this and says that humans shouldn't eat animals because they know better, then the same should be true for animals who supposedly have the same feelings and emotions as us.

There you go, haha...It is NURSING-behaviour. Well at least it shows how instinctive and 'animal' your dirty minds are (does not matter though, thats evolution as well) as opposed to the animals in this distressing situation..


here, a little read about nursing behaviour in cats...

Seems like some are more experts in animal porn.


Anyway, animals have proven enough that they are capable of feelings for so-called "intelligent" humans to acknowledge that fact. I could personally see my own pet behaving like that.

Poor little gal, my heart goes out to her.

When or dog died back in the states, our cat mourned the loss. She sat on the dogs grave for hours on end, wouldn't even eat for a couple of days.

A few years later, our cat was hit by a car and spent a few hours crawling home to her "mom" (my grandma) so she could die there with her.

When my grandma burried the cat beside the dog, there was an orange cat who came to visit, he/she would sit on the cats grave for hours on end.

So, do animals mourn? You betcha.

But great post OP. Starred and flagged in hopes others will see this too.

While doing research for my expository essay on animal emotions I read an anecdote about some magpies seemingly mourning the loss of a fellow magpie lying dead on the side of the road. The observer saw about 4 other magpies beside the body. One at a time they each took a gently peck at it. One flew off and returned with some blades of grass and lay them beside the body. they all hung around for a few more moments and then flew off.

I would interpret it as them saying farewell to their friend and even leaving an offering for it.

did anyone else think that cat was just giving the other cat biscuits? i mean, did it even really show any signs that made it seem like it knew the other one was dead? and wasn't that whole video just kind of messed up anyway?
