Humans And Animals Relationship
Can you tell me the difference between A dog, A cow and a cat?
Animals share their life with us, we share food with them, even our beds and houses, We give them a huge value, we try everything to make them happy and give them emotional support, We mourn them when they pass away.
Animals enjoy being a live as much as you do. Yet, for other animals, we don’t care about, and all what we do is sticking a fork and knife in their meet, or make their skin as clothes to enjoy wearing.
Imagine your dog being killed for food, or your kitty cat killed for here fluffy hair!!
