    Animal behavior?

    My longest lasting obsession has been on animal behavior, cognition and welfare.

Never had a cat or a dog, just some guinea pigs and a hamster, when I was younger, but have no desire to keep pets anymore. I like watching the wild birds in my garden (I don't know enough about...

    Do you remember your dreams?

    Rarely ever do, only at times when I take a short nap and wake up suddenly. And then they fade away. Do you like your dreams? Which ones do you like? Do recall several in which I saw people from the past, but was anxious and walked quickly through rooms of people who I used to know and some...
