It's been a joy to read this reasoning!
Give thankhs everyone
Astral Empress I especially fulljoyed reading that iversation between the I and Cedric.
And yes IPX ninja my answer to that question is quite the same.
Why would they?
I know a few people who after time I have realized I just cannot even communicate with them, I just ignore their calls or texts or whatever, and I simply live better without them because I have learned that they are not to be trusted, just cause me problems.
Animals must see humans this way. They see many of each other this way, too. Any threat, they tend to stay far away from. You'll never see an antelope trying to communicate with a lion.
But if you gain their trust, any animal of any species will prove to you their deep emotion, their love and devotion, their memory of past events.
