I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and self-contain'd,
I stand and look at them long and long.

They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
Not one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with the mania of owning things,
Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago,
Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth.

-- Walt Whitman

Oh my God. This is so unbelievable sweet. We are lucky because we have many animals and we get to see the relationships they form with each other. Like Daphne, Noah's girlfriend, will always let him eat out of her bowl. Only Noah.
These animals are such a gift. Smudge is delicious. What a sweetheart. And Riley is too adorable for words. Looks like they are buds.
