“The Secret Life of Pets” did doggone well at the box office by showing what dogs and cats really think – at least the animated kind with human voices.
Of course, real pets don’t have the luxury of stars like Louis C.K. and Kevin Hart to speak for them. And they can’t speak for themselves. They can bark and howl, purr and hiss, but no words pass their lips.
Still, it’s not hard to know what your precious pals are thinking if you pay attention to their body language, say experts. And that can be very important in protecting the well-being of you and your family.
According the government’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are about 4.5 million dog bites in the U.S. every year. Cat bite estimates run about 400,000 annually. And a high percentage of the victims are kids.
