Most people do not realise that communication with animals is possible. So they treat animals in a negligent and sometime very brutal way. Most animals do have a language and a consciousness and some are rather intelligent. I see that daily with my cat, dog and horse. To treat animals in a respectful way giving them legal rights could be a way to protect them against harm from humans. By doing that the world will in my opinion become a better and ¨richer¨ place. Please consider this and sign the pledge.
