So, I love my cat and lately, he’s been quite “chatty.” He’s also been vomiting due to hairballs, which is quite common. But, I’m wondering if cats have any thoughts prior to vomiting or getting sick, or when they’re in pain? Like in all this chatter, is he trying to convey his distress? For humans, we go through anguish and possibly fear, right before we vomit. “Ugh, I feel so sick,” crosses our mind. I wonder if cats and dogs, or animals in general, process their feelings, even slightly, like we do? My cat will vomit up a hairball, look at me, and walk away, as though nothing happened. But I’m not a cat mind-reader, so I don’t know. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! Maybe they handle pain better than we do. There’s that, too. What are your thoughts on this?
