I love reading truthful stories about animals and interspecies relationships. I love them more when they illuminate the perspectives and experiences of animals in ways that depict them with dignity, agency, and beings worthy of appreciation and respect.
Come across any stories like that? Please send them my way so that I can archive them. Too few exist not to have them all in one place.
