    I'm torn between turning invisible as it might help me venture outside and not worry and communicate with animals as it seems like a money making opportunity :D

    Communicate with animals
    I’d like to communicate with animals to reassure them that I’m not a threat, nor should they be to me. It would be interesting to get their opinions on various matters.

    for example, this very morning I eventually managed to gently catch a young pigeon and put it on my extension roof. It wanted to be higher up nearer its parents and away from danger. It was probably slightly stressful for the bird being handled but I did it fast and gently. It’s perfectly happy up there now waiting for the strength in its wings to be able to fly up on to my main roof and perhaps get fed.

    Would love to be invisible.

    Then again would love to be able to communicate animals, I would love to know what my dog thinks, also would love to for example work at vets and be able to reassure the animals or warn birds, foxes etc when bad people are around or when hunting season starts.

    Tbh I prefer the company of animals to some people.

    Sometimes when watching what the human race can do you wonder who is the animal!
