I love all animals, but cats are the best.

Same here!  They have a mystery about them, and know when they're loved.  They all have different pussonalities too. They're graceful, and feature more in art nowadays than any other animal.

 

As a companion I particularly like any fluffy, cute, friendly animal.  I've always wanted a sloth, serval, skunk or slow loris for a pet!

They certainly are.  Have you heard of Laetitia Becker, a young Frenchwoman who emigrated from Strasbourg to the Russian taiga?  She lives in a deserted village on her own and has devoted her life to studying and conserving the wolves.  I'm pretty sure she's an aspie.  I envy her way of life.  She's perfectly content in her little wooden izba, has the internet, a mobile shop visits her and she has no wish to socialise or return to 'civilisation'.  Watch her videos :)

Human, were animals as well.

Humans can be annoying, and I hate it when people wake me up from sleep. someone woke me at three am once for a lousy wrong number, the nerves! like i dont have enough to deal with insomnia and not sleep starved anyway.

I had one of those calls last night (withheld number) and it broke my dream, at the exact moment after my friend's mother had dialled a number on a dream phone.  Bizarre!

Animals can be annoying too to be fair. The amount of times I've been woken up by flying-rat seagulls is unreal

My cat is definitely annoying, she is driving us crazy with her incessant whining.

I like horses most of all.

I'm a dog person myself. I love their loyalty, enthusiasm and playfulness

I've had both dogs and cats - as well many others types of animals.  I like the grace, independence, playfulness, idiosyncrasies, complexity and cleanliness of cats.  I like to be 'owned' rather than to own.  A loyal cat says a lot more about the animal-human relationship than a loyal dog would - for cats are not pack animals and to gain their trust and acceptance should be seen as an honour.  All my cats are loyal and loving - as all domestic cats would be with suitable human companions.  (I've studied the psychology and history of cats, as well as that of human-animal relationships.  Very interesting and illuminating stuff).

btw Cats are autistic dogs!  This article's well worth reading: http://www.mamamia.c...rgers-syndrome/

That is such an interesting and thoughtful article! It's such a good analogy and I think it could be really effective in helping NT people understand AS better. It should become mandatory reading for NTs!

Apes, all kinds barring humans who have a so called 'modern' outlook on life.

 

i,e, people who think that you can do whatever you want or dream about even if it is morally wrong.
