Have you ever wondered what was going through the head of your beloved dog or cat or hamster or bird or fish? I have. My cat, Sparkle, acts so peculiar some times. So, I decided to make an article about what pets could be thinking.
First off, I’ll talk about the pet most of you likely have – dogs. Dogs are the most social of pets, always right by their owners’ sides. From this, you can tell that all dogs really think about is protecting you. Even the small dogs, I think. You probably know that small and large dogs both bark at anyone near the house they’re at, be it cat, dog, human, etc. This is likely because they’re thinking about protecting their owners. So it seems dogs mostly think about their owners.
Moving on to cats! Cats are much different from dogs. They seem to have very in-depth thoughts, as you can see from the intelligent expression in their eyes when they are resting. Cats, unlike dogs, seem uninterested in scaring off strangers, but this does not mean they do not love their owners. If you make a good connection with them, they seem to always be able to sense your emotion and comfort you if you are upset. Cats are very interesting animals.
Now for birds. I don’t have much experience with birds, but they mostly seem to think about flying around and having fun. They seem to be thinking how lucky they are that they can travel in style a way we can’t! Of course, like all pets, with the proper care and treatment, I’m sure they can make very loving pets.
Let’s move on to small animals. It seems that animals such as hamsters, gerbils, mice, and rats mostly think about investigation. When they are let out of their cage, they run around and sniff everything around. They seem to spend most of their time figuring out what things smell like what – investigation, comparison. They seem to be curious creatures. But it’s also possible that their thoughts are a little more simple… perhaps “Sniff, sniff, sniff! Scurry, scurry, scurry!”
Last of all, fish. I think fish spend most of their time trying to figure out what’s going on. It must be very confusing to live in a fish tank, in water and on land at the same time. They might spend most of their time thinking and wondering. I think it should be noted that fish seem able to sense time and weather, going to certain spots when it’s feeding time or there’s bad weather.
Well, there you go. But remember… these are just my guesses as to what’s in pets’ heads. Now the question is for you… what do you think pets think?
