I thought animal loving is illegal in Switzerland.

Re: Are animal lovers nicer ?

to reverse this...

If someone tells me they don't like animals, it makes me suspicious of them. Fine if they don't like cats or dogs, etc...but if they don't like any animals, that's just weird.

Re: Are animal lovers nicer ?

Most animals taste nice if you aren't a vegan. I get worried about animal lovers that cannot relate to humans. So often you hear them whispering to their pets, that they (the pets), are far superior to humans. Why can't animal lovers realise that animals don't bite them because the human owner bribes them with food?

It depends. There is a significant difference between a folk who gave a good seeing to a goat and a goat who gave a good seeing to a folk

Re: Are animal lovers nicer ?

Are animal lovers nicer? Nicer than what?

Nicer than dead people?
Nicer than fish and chips?

If you use 'nicer' as a comparative adjective, you ought to state what group you want to compare animal lovers to in your poll.

A question I'd like to ask is:

Do you believe that people who don't keep animals as pets can be animal lovers?

Re: Are animal lovers nicer ?

I am a true animal lover.

I wear a fur coat.
Wear leather shoes.
Eat lots of meat.
Love to watch bull fighting.

I can't imagine that some people, like vegans or vegetarians, don't like animals. There is probably something seriously wrong with them.

Re: Are animal lovers nicer ?

I've never had an animal as a lover, so I can't help you there.

Unless you count that boy in high school, the bicycle shed and those... never mind...

I LOVE animals, especially when they are women!

However, kinky is better than animal.

Re: Are animal lovers nicer ?

I don't know about animals. But my late grandad used to say "if you dont know how to handle a loaf of bread (cutting it, storing it..serving it), you won't know how to handle a person".

I know there are these cliche psy therapies, 1st get a plant, then a pet...then a partner, etc etc. According to those, Blueangel, there might be some truth in what you say..People not getting on with animals, maybe a sign of something?

Some of the animal lovers I've met seem to hate humans.
