Inside The Minds of Our Best Friends – Part I
If you have a cat or dog (and chances are you do), you have probably spend some time pondering a seemingly unfathomable question:
"What's on their minds?"
Christopher Scapelitti, editor of "The Secret Worlds of Cats & Dogs," has dug deep into it. "For all the hours we spend with these most domesticated of animals," Scapeletti says, "you'd think we might have an inkling of what's going on inside their heads. While most of us could make logical and even accurate assumptions about our pets' states of mind, it's the science that eludes–the knowledge of how animal nature, evolution and domestication have intertwined to create and shape the minds of these companions with whom we share our lives.
These are the questions you are going to find answers in this series of visual stories starting today: " What unique circumstances and animal natures conspired to make cats and dogs our constant companion?;" "How did our worlds happen to intersect?;" "What do their vocalizations and body language mean?;" "How to they see us?"
In the coming visual stories, we are going to dig deeper into these and other questions we all have in mind, when we are dealing with our four-legged buddies.
