Most Pet Owners Say They Can Communicate With Their Companions

A survey found that most pet owners say they can communicate with their pets. We guess that explains why Evan Rachel Wood says her new kitty is all the man she needs.

The survey reports that 67% of pet owners said they can understand their animals' sounds (such as barks and meows) and 62% of owners said that their pets can understand them when they speak. One-fifth of pet owners said they and their pets understand each other's sounds completely.

Who are these people who say they can communicate with their pets? They are mostly female, living on a lower-income, older and cat-owners. Fewer than six in 10 males said they and their pets understand one another. Men!
