Ever wanted to talk to animals?

Have you ever had the urge to have an intelligent conversation with an animal?

I really wish my cockatiel could talk. I really want to have a conversation with her. Her body language sometimes looks like shes listening to me and understands me. I want her to say something back.

It would be kind of interesting, but I think "Why the hell aren't you listening to me?!" would be more annoying than "meow"

it was either crows or ravens were if u slit their tounges when they are young they can learn to talk... not just like a parrot who mearly copys phrases, but actually learn an understand to converse to a limited degree.... read this somewere so only 90 percent sure of accuracy

it is pretty easy to understand what an animal is thinking without them needing to talk.

I think a conversation with my dog wouldnt be too successful, there would just be a lot of "lets play ball" and "can i have some food"

i wish i could do that now. my kitten's been acting neurotic for the past couple hours. one moment his body gets really stiff and he just lies there like he's about to die. the next moment he's going crazy chasing something that's not there. he's never acted like this before. i think he swallowed something. i hope he okay

I would like to talk to animals - not just one kind of animal. All animals. I love animals

But if I could do it, there'd have to be a way I could tune it out once in a while. It seems like it would get annoying.

...Then again, sometimes I like that my cat can't yell at me and judge me and stuff like that. It's better to just be purred to than to have her repeat "iloveyouiloveyouiloveyou" or something

haha, that's an excellent quote.

I would like to talk to animals, just to find out why they do some of the stupid things they do sometimes (and I'm sure the animals would ask likewise of me).

My cat Heidi is extremely clever and has learned how to talk. She says "can" whenever she wants some canned food. Except for some reason everyone else can't hear it and they think she's just saying "meow" or something.

I have wondered at times, just how difficult it would be to discifer the language of dolphins. I find it likely they have some level of society, and would be a blast when drunk.

It's crows that can talk when you slit their tongue, but it must be done when they are extremely young, as in the first 2 days of life.

No they do not have any kind of conversation with you, its exactly like a parot. It's all copy-cating

OHh yeah, and I DO NOT want the ability to talk to animals. Nothing would be worse than walking in the woods on october second. Seeing a monster buck 7 feet in front of me... bow pulled back, and he's begging for his life to me telling me about his kids and wife.

A lot of you guys have cats. nothing wrong with that. just an observation.

I talk to my dogs all the time. they usually ignore me but they occasionally get involved and respond. I think they misunerstand me most of the time. Maybe my dogs speak spanish or something.

I've wondered sometimes if animals are actually more intelligent than we humans give them credit for. I think it would be interesting to talk to them to see what's up.

Yes, oh yes.

For awhile now, I've been wanting to talk to that cat who comes up to my patio door when I'm not around.

I know exactly what I'd like to tell him.

It isn't so hard to speak to animals. Start by getting their attention and say Hello. When they respond, go from there.

I feel as if I have a slight ability to talk to animals. With concentration I can send brief, simple messages. I notice a response by the turning of heads or movements similar to what I asked. Of course its only when being as friendly as possible. As for receiving messages back in the mental form? Thats a lot harder, but its been done before.
Welcome to the club! Not that I'm in the club. And there really isn'a a club in the first place. But if there was a club and if I was in it, I would definitely welcome you to it.

Ah, the Bambi effect. I think there're a lot of people raised on Walt Disney who imagine that exact scenario.

BTW I'm pretty sure my dogs talk behind my back anyway.

I'm sure my roommate's cat and I would be forever argueing. The two of us are forever fighting over the living room recliner... he yells at me whenever I'm sitting in it, then walks off, prettends to be asleep. I get up and turn my back for 5 seconds, he's already made himself comfortable. I then remove him, despite his protests.
Do you want me to sit in a corner and rust of just fall apart where I'm standing?
