Thursday Thoughts: Animal Thoughts

Ever wonder what animals are thinking?


  • Some animals can figure out puzzles or get themselves out of a jam.

Cause and effect?

  • Most animal learn to recognize words or signals and the actions or results of those. They know went they have to go to the bathroom or when they are hungry.

What about the passage of time? If you leave pet, do they know if you have been gone for a short or long time?

  • I know that most cats don’t care regardless, but dogs are pretty happy when you return and there is not much difference in excitement level between five minutes and five hours.

What causes a pet to get up and play with one of its toys?

  • I’ve seen a dog root through a pile of toys, obviously searching for a specific one.

No answers here. Just more questions.

One thought on “Thursday Thoughts: Animal Thoughts

  1. Yes, I have wonder a few times what goes on in animals head and how much they interrupt about the world around them. Do they understand the concept of time as you say or perceive life the way we do. I wonder what goes on in their heads.
