Furvey - Animals

48. What animals are you most/least comfortable with?

Most: other canids of similar size to wolves.
Least: very small dogs, insects, small birds.

49. What pets do you own?

Two Siamese cats, Nala and Piewaquet. Two very different individuals.

50. Do you have the opportunity to watch animals in the wild?

Well, this is the UK, so there is no "wild". I do occasionally see fox, rabbits, mice, rats and deer.

51. Do you have a greater-than-average empathy with animals?

I'd like to think so.

52. Do you believe that animals have ESP?

Yes, and I'd extend that interaction to inanimate objects too.

53. Have you ever communicated with an animal via telepathy?

No, though I've read research on this.

54. Do you think it is acceptable to hunt/raise animals for food?


55. Do you think it is acceptable to hunt/raise animals for fur/leather?

Not exclusively for fur/leather, but having killed an animal for food I'd be happy to use fur/leather and bones too. For me the distinction is not in what the dead creature is used for, but why it was killed. I find killing for greed or vanity abhorrent.

56. Do you think it is acceptable to hunt animals for sport?

No, but given a real need to hunt and kill, I suspect I'd find it exhilarating. That would _not_ be a reason to hunt again.
