Ever thought about why animals that know you often are unsure if you are you?

  • With Hillary and Obama having already being replaced by doppelgangers, your pets are just double checking.

  • Aah, that might explain it. Hope I was replaced with a younger, healthier one. 😸

    Two good theories here. But maybe it is just your cats' way of manipulating you.

  • Hmmmm, I will have to think about that. Not that they donít manipulate us though. We have several who have mastered that in other ways.

  • I don't know about cats, but dogs see the silhouette first, more than your features. As a matter of fact, your shape, sound, and smell are all more important than your facial features, which is how we humans recognize one another. Strange clothes would make you unrecognizable initially. This is why some dogs go off on things like people with hats, or people carrying an umbrella. to them it might not look like a human at all!

    In socializing a dog to behave appropriately with strangers they are introduced to all of the common variations; people with hats, umbrellas, long coats, etc.
