I like them. I wouldn't say love since love just seems like it doesn't fit right to describe it. Like they're cool.

Animal lover. Can not force myself to hate animals. Insects aren't animals to me, most of them.

I love animals, of all shapes & sizes, most of the time far more than I like humans. I'm a serious cat -person: I've always said a house is not a home without a cat & have always had 2 or 3 cats with me. The only reason I don't have one at the moment is that I am mourning the loss of my 21yo boy, Mephisto who died at the end of January - when I can approach a cat without crying I will find another to join my family, but Fizzy will never be forgotten!!
I can't think of any animals I dislike & find it hard to understand people who dont like animals - they say its the first sign of a serial killer!! Besides domestic pets I spend a good part of every day in contact with animals through my wildlife rescue & rehab work. I get to spend time with all the iconic Australian animals, as well as the lesser known & not so popular (including venomous!) ones. Among my favourites are fruit bats, which are universally despised over here by farmers, orchardists & home-owners' partly due to a panic caused by Government misinformation about their propensity to carry/spread Lyssavirus. Anyone who loves animals should endeavour to get to know a fruit bat!! They are highly intelligent, very affectionate & loyal, and have a truly warped sense of humour!! I routinely bring up 4-5 orphans every year & usually have another couple of older injured ones around the house; they are a blast!!
Anyhow, enough said. Cuddle an animal every chance you get; it will make a difference - to you and the animal!!


This is Mephisto, RIP.

So let's eat insects instead.

Unfortunately, I'm totally serious.

Also, did anybody see the weasel riding the woodpecker? Yeah, the cute weasel was trying to eat the poor woodpecker, but what a photograph! If it weren't for the camera, everybody would say "no" and I'm currently struggling with that, personally.

My favorite animal was the fox when I was a kid. Now it's the tanuki. But who am I kidding, after I watched a youtube video of an African buffalo killing a lion, they're all my favorite animal.

I love all animals - except mice that get into my house and pigeons.

I believe all animals have a purpose for existing, and I always donate a portion of my annual Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend to local animal shelters.

I like animals. Yes, that includes crabs, bugs, snakes, dogs, etc.

But I'm really creeped out by monkeys and apes. They're too human. It is creepy when people treat them as pets and they way they move is unnerving.

I'm not a lover but I'm not a hater either. I'm just in between.

I love all animals. Animals aren't exclusive though. Most living things in general I love and find fascinating

I am somewhat of an animal lover, though it better translates into respect for them. I believe that we should be allowed to use animals for our purposes (that includes in entertainment) as long as the welfare of animals are taken seriously and their pain is minimized. I don't think of dogs and cats as deserving of any more respect than say a pig or a rat, however (though I have a soft spot for cats). I think that it is as wrong to torture a rat than it is to torture a stray cat, and I think it is better for a dog to be reared for meat and killed humanely than for a pig to suffer gratuitous, unnecessarily for bacon. I am unswayed by sentimental animal stories (except for great apes ones) or cute stories, but when I did see some of those gratuitous animal abuse videos I felt sick to my stomach.

Compared to most other people in real life, however, I am an animal lover. I very often complain about how some people treat animals and often I will consistently try to coerce them to find methods that won't make them suffer. When I was 10 or so I defacto left my religion upon hearing that the official policy was that animals don't go to heaven. When I buy eggs, I try to find humane options like enriched colony housing, and I also abstain from eating meat several times a week.

That being said, I find the internet animal community completely obnoxious. A lot of them seem to be okay with abusing children, raping women, genocide, etc. yet the second an animal enters the picture they go ape****.
