LIsten, animals might not be the same as us but they ain’t stupid and I don’t understand anybody who thinks they’re just machines. I’ve seen snakes mourn their partners’ deaths, and some even die from heartbreak. I’ve seen rats cry because their partner has been taken away and sold. I’ve seen dogs give people the silent treatment, because they’re leaving for months again, but be ecstatic upon their return even if it’s years later. I’ve seen lemurs stare humans down because they saw them give the meerkats food and they haven’t fed them, and they’re hungry. I’ve seen animals laugh and cry and be jealous and sad and angry and happy and scared and feel safe and be confused and want attention and behave in ways so human it shocked even me. I don’t understand how anybody who has worked with animals can eat them, when every experience I’ve had of an animal makes me know in my gut that what we’re doing is so so wrong.
