The humanization of animals by pet lovers has always intrigued me.
Is it possible you have never experience the unconditional love of a dog? That will change your ideas about pets forever.

Actually, I don't see what is humanizing about providing a way for an animal live longer than otherwise. That's what I did with bird rehab, and I don't think I was pretending they were human. I was just trying to let them live a bit longer.

I will admit I treat my kitties sometimes like baby humans, but I don't think basic welfare is an example of that. It's just the respectful way to treat any live being especially one that is dependent on you. I carry spiders outside so they can live longer. Am I humaninzing them? I'm just respectful of life.
