Have you had this happen? You are trying to get your pet to do something, try a new food, step into a new harness, or give you a paw to clean. After struggling briefly, you issue a precise command, like: “Just hold still for a second.” You pet obeys, and your eyes lock. You could swear you hear them think: “Why didn’t you just say so?”
Most pet owners can relate moments when they seem to pick up what an animal is thinking or asking; some have told me their pet has warned them of a burner left on, let them know when they’ve overslept, or drew attention to another pet in the household that had been left outside accidentally. I had a Siamese cat who signaled me that the apartment across from mine had a man on the roof who was breaking into the building. The cat screamed, repeatedly bouncing from my bed to the windowsill until I awoke.
