Tanya Buttens Posted over 1 year ago What is Love? Is love uniquely a human trait or are animals capable of loving? I believe animals can feel love because from personal experience when you leave your pet they cry and worry, just as we do. Animals long to spend time with their families. I have budgies and the male and female mated and produced offspring, when the chick was separated to a distance, all birds would try to be as close to eachother as possible, and when the mother died, the father was depressed for some time and then died of a broken heart. If animals couldnt feel love than the father would have just continued his life to do anything it wanted but instead he missed the love shown to him and died. In conclusion, animals can feel love as we do.
