Arctic Tale (2007) is about the ecological problems animals face. Animals are smarter than most think. They also tend to care deeply about how they feel both physically and emotionally. They are far from insensitive, especially physically. Therefore, great care needs to be taken about their feelings, and this is why it is best to get an animal used to going to their care giver before that is needs so they do not fear the ride or the caregiver, such as a Veterinarian, groomer, stable or house keeper. Some pets have been known to be used to traveling with the family, or family unit, and to get enraged when isolated and left behind and one male cat would open all the kitchen doors and put the pots in the middle of the kitchen when left behind. Animals often enjoy being acknowledged for their insights and intelligence and may even enjoy playing games or tricks on their so-called owners. Once a parrot got out and then was found from a missing pet hotline in Berkeley, California flew into a cage that the left for him and laughed all the way home in the car to Davis, California about 200 miles, and had never laughed for such a long time before. Pets may go to lower ground or hide under the house when sick, but climb when they are happy, mating, or raising their young. They may favor a closet when about to give birth and it may be best to put a box with bedding in a closet and allow them to sleep in there because they tend to want peace and privacy before giving birth. Almost any pet may consider leaving if unhappy or if their status has been changed or lowers, especially if they are receiving less attention or a reduced quality of food. They also can wish to have more grooming, and to NOT have any toxic flea collar, so non-toxic pest repellant is recommended.
