Series Statement

We keep pets so that we will have companionship, but in order to assuage our own loneliness we condemn most pets to a life of solitary confinement.  We remove them from their families, peers and natural communities.  Take away any interaction with members of their own species, or force them to live with members of a different species or tribe.  Imprison them in tiny, cramped, artificial environments and deny any form of natural expression.  We break their spirits and impose our human will and we call this “love”.  I wonder if we ever consider life through their eyes?
