Okay, so, be honest with us, each and every one of you cat owners have tried having a meowing conversation with your cat. There's no shame in it! We all do it. We want to know what's going on in our itty bitty feline's noggin. We want to know what our cats are thinking when they're being jerks and knocking everything over and when they suddenly become all snuggly. So, it's only natural for us to try to speak to them!

From the Independent: "In a world-first experiment, academics in Hungary trained 13 dogs to voluntarily lie in an MRI scanner to monitor what happened in their brain when the researchers spoke to them.

They discovered that dogs’ brains process language in a similar way to humans, with the right side dealing with emotion and the left processing meaning. 

It was only when both sides of the brain agreed they were hearing praise that the dog was truly happy."
