Some examples of what we're looking for:
Having such good memories means they remember their suffering.
For instance, these cows are happy for returning to the pasture after a long winter.
Their emotions can be every bit as troubling as ours.
They can be depressed so much they won't even eat!
Even our distant relatives, the cetaceans are very aware and very playful fellows.
This Humpback Whale, for instance, realizes she's been saved from a fishing net and lets her rescuers know she is thankful.
Birds in general are very aware of what their peers are doing.
Everytime you find evidence remember to share with us.
Thanks for tuning in to the sub ;)
