Of course, non-human animals are also sentient. We often know when they are happy or sad but they feel much more than that. Any emotion we may feel they can also experience because, like us, they are members of the animal kingdom. They can forge deep friendships, have a sense of humour and play tricks on us to make us laugh. Animals have hopes and fears, dreams and desires and they also fall in love and grieve the loss of loved ones…just like human-animals. They’re very aware of our moods and our hopes and dreams. They understand our limitations even when we may not acknowledge them ourselves.
