I wonder, if cats and dogs have memories like we do. If I had fed the stray cat once, will she remember me? If I had cuddled the cute little dog once, will he remember it was me? Will my smell trigger some stirring of memories in them?
I wonder, if dogs and cats love like we do. Do they recall with fondness the mother of their litters? Will they pine with longing when their mate goes away? Will they love with the kind of desperate hunger with which we beg to be loved?
If equal affection cannot be, let the more loving one be me.
