  1. As we all know, animals have feelings too. A good person will always be good to an animals even if it is a stray one.

  2. I quite agree with this quote..only a cruel and wicked person will be cruel to animals…this is so true

  3. I agree, people who hurt animals and can’t experience compassion is just showing their real escence, the real nature of their soul.

  4. We need to treat animals like a human being. They don’t live that long and they deserve respect and love like everyone else.

  5. I’m not sure if I completely agree with this. I have seen quite a few people who were nice to fellow humans but not so much to animals.

  6. I always have a soft spot for animals. I fail to understand why anyone would be cruel to them.

  7. I do not agree with this because we are all different. It meant that each person can be different, However, small things can give us a hint on a character. I am not saying that being cool with animals automatically makes you a good person thus I disagree but it is more than likely that you are.

  8. Can a good man be measured through the love for an animal? Yes anyone that’s in to animal cruelty isn’t a good person either.

  9. Way to be, Arthur! Anyone who’s inhumane to animals has no place in society. We’re all universally connected and every species matters.

  10. I love animals so sometimes I wonder why anyone should harm them and some do it in a very wicked way. I will have to agree with you.
