I was watching some Inside Edition or Entertainment Tonight show the other night and they had a story on about a cat and a dog that each live in different nursing homes. They both have a strange ability to predict the deaths of the patients that live there. And by predicting the death, it gives the staff time to contact the family so they can say their goodbyes.
I also know that they use dogs for adults and kids that have severe seizures. The dog somehow can sense that a seizure is going to take place and can warn the person. This is amazing to me. Not to mention the abilities of animals to predict bad storms and such.
Just how do they do it? What is it in animals that makes them more in tune or more aware of things unknown? Is there a smell or a feeling?
I started thinking really hard about this and just haven’t been able to stop. And I think that I have finally figured out the key factor. The opposable thumb! Think about it… this is what seperates us from animals so much. Our ability to write and do all kinds of other things because we have an opposable thumb. I think that when God was making all the critters and people, he had to choose. He only had so much room in each package and we got the thumbs, they got the 6th sense. So which would you rather have? Would you want to trade? You could predict stuff but couldn’t drive? Unless you were Toonces of course…
