After running an errand today, I was walking home on a grungy side street and came upon a large stray cat. A big white cat.

It started mewing, dolefully, it seemed to me.

I identified with it.

Can and do animals with whom we are familiar, such as dogs, cats, and horses, have emotions similar to our own? Can they feel a sense of neglect and abandonment?

I would say yes.
