When I was writing UNSPOKEN, some of my pals kidded me about my premise, insisting that animals didn’t have emotions, couldn’t think (much), and that they really weren’t all I was supposing they were.
Well . . . take a look at this crow. Not only does she have desires, but she knows how to use a tool to get it. Pretty smart bird, huh?
I still say animals are a lot smarter and deeper than we think they are. 🙂
