                Animal Emotions

                Pet owners have long believed their companions loved them back.
                Scientists once scoffed, but now they're coming around

                By Mary Carmichael
                NEWSWEEK

                July 21 issue — Everyone who's ever owned a pet has at least one
                story (usually many, actually) of an animal that seems just as
                emotional as any human.

                TAKE RUTH OSMENT, who says her two cats, Penny and Jo, feel sorry for
                her when she cries—running to her and drying her tears with their
                fur. Or Donna Westlund, whose roommate's parrot Koko shows all the
                classic signs of a teenage crush, calling out "Hey, come here,"
                whenever she tries to leave the room.

                Then there's John Van Zante. Recently, he watched Max, a Labrador
                retriever mix, sit lovingly by a woman in a wheelchair in a
                convalescent home while she patted his head for several minutes. It
                wasn't until the elderly woman wheeled off down the hall that Van
                Zante realized she had been parked on Max's tail the entire time. Max
                hadn't complained at all. "He was in pain, clearly, but he seemed to
                know that she had special needs, so he just sat through it," says Van
                Zante, communications director for the Helen Woodward Animal Center
                in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif.

                NO EMOTIONS?
                Van Zante doesn't understand why some scientists argue that animals
                have no emotions, that they merely respond to incentives like so many
                automatons. "If we were purely a source for food, I'm certain that
                Max's reaction would have been different," he says. "Haven't these
                scientists noticed that their cats can't wait to rub up against their
                legs and reclaim ownership of their people after a day at work? Don't
                they take the time to greet their tail-wagging dogs when they get
                home?"

                Well, yes. But they're not as starry-eyed about what they see. For
                decades, psychologists have discounted the idea that pets can love
                their humans back. They have argued that animals that appear to
                express emotions are merely reacting to hormonal rushes triggered—in
                cold, but typical, technical language—by "outside stimuli." But that
                view is changing, thanks to a loosely knit band of researchers
                working in fields as far-flung as neurobiology and behavioral
                observation.
