The Extended Family

My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell

If under any circumstances we get a chance to live with animals we’ll see that they are very similar to humans. They have their own temperaments and moods, liking and disliking. Just like a family member they can treat us kindly or with contempt. For instance, cats often assume the role of the proud beloved while dogs usually prove to be faithful lovers. Likewise our relationship with any animal would have a significance of its own.
