Journal writing excerpts – What would you do if you could communicate with animals?

(S3A – Maheen)

If I could talk to animals, I would be surprised and convinced that I am someone special!

My favourite animal is a cat. They are pure and clean. Even though they scratch everything and become naughty, they can give you a lot of happiness. Therefore, talking to pets and understanding their feelings would help a lot of people to adopt animals.

Once we adopt animals, we can empathize with them and understand what they think and feel. If I ever adopt a cat, I would ask what are its favourite meals, does it really prefer fish?

(S3A – Mubeena)

I’ve always wanted to talk to animals and understand what they are trying to say. I love cats. When I see them wandering around the streets, I often say ‘Hi’ to them, but they always respond with a ‘Meow’. Then we have a conversation in cat language, but I don’t understand what they are trying to tell me. Maybe they need help, or they are hungry. If I could communicate with them, I would be so happy to help them and be friends with them.

(S3A – Tazki)

If I could communicate w.ith animals, I would share my emotions and have fun with them and make more animal friends. In my opinion, it’s better to make animal friends than human friends. I would also communicate with them to find out how they are living their lives, and how do they survive in this human world. Some humans kill animals and don’t think of the family they may have. By communicating with animals, I would want to make a better and peaceful world for them.
