Don't panic, we'll get through this together. Let's explore our options here.
Careful scientific research is validating what we intuitively understand: that animals feel, and their emotions are as important to them as ours are to us. Animals' emotions are ... raw and uncontrolled. Their joy is the purest and most contagious of joys, and their grief the deepest and most devastating.
When animals express their feelings they pour out like water from a spout. Indeed, when we pay attention, animals display a mindful presence, unfiltered emotions, and a zest for life .... Their passions bring us to our knees in delight and sorrow.
