Why Do People Like Animals?

People like animals for different reasons. Some of us like them because we feel we can afford to be friendly to them and be their master. Our innate feeling of superiority makes us want to feel benevolent towards the animals, who are considered dumb and lovable.

Then there are some of us who love animals because we look for some kind of unconditional affection and loyalty from someone. We do not usually find that kind of loyalty among our human friends. All of us usually have some motive or the other for everything we do in our lives, and so we turn to the animals.

There are those who love animals simply because they are what they are. They have an innocence about them that is immediately appealing. The innocence is what draws us to them. They are beautiful creatures, without the corruption that the ability to think and discriminate brings to our minds. They love us irrespective of who we are, what we do, and how we act. That kind of acceptance is something we all yearn for, and that is what draws us to animals.
