How do cats know when it's time to go to the vet, even before the cat carrier comes out? How do dogs know when their owners are returning home at unexpected times? How can horses find their way back to the stable over completely unfamiliar terrain? With a scientist's mind and an animal lover's compassion, world-renowned biologist Rupert Sheldrake presents a groundbreaking exploration of animal behavior that will profoundly change the way we think about animals -- and ourselves. After five years of extensive research involving thousands of people who have pets and work with animals, Dr. Sheldrake proves conclusively what many pet owners already know: there is a strong connection between humans and animals that defies present-day scientific understanding. This remarkable book deserves a place next to the most beloved and valuable books on animals, includingWhen Elephants Weep,Dogs Never Lie About Love, andThe Hidden Life of Dogs.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who has ever gazed at their dog and wondered what was going on in their furry little head. The book is a bit dry in spots but overall offers an impressive, fascinating wealth of information. If you are a pet owner you will find yourself shaking your head in recognition
