So… am I the only person who thought their relationship with their pet was so strong you tried to communicate telepathically with them?
All. The. Time.
I tried that with my goldfish many years ago. I almost drowned 🙁
I swear, Coco knows when I think about her, and even if she is alseep, she complains (grumbles) when I look at cat funnies!
That is stupid…I did it with my stuffed Rolly the dalmation toy, but what you are talking about makes no sense.
That last part is how I feel about what you just said.
I sometimes think my relationship with my dog is so strong, I just talk to her. Completely normally, like she’s a human who understands English. She’ll be laying not too far off, and I’ll just look over and say, in a completely normal tone and volume, “You know, you’re the best Boo, and I love you.” She always gets up and comes over for hugs and kisses when I do that.
All of her commands are actually proper phrases, now that I think about it. Like if I need her to move, I say, “Excuse me, Boo.” And she moves. And I always say thank you. I’m realizing now that it’s a bit weird……..
