I would say that animals share many of the issues we have. Put yourself in their paws for a moment. Think of all the fears you had as a child because of your limited understanding of cause and effect, eg. animals and small children are afraid of the thunder - they sense the power but don't realise it's harmless.
We hear birds singing and the chances are that it's a bird telling another bird to f* off. We say "Isn't that beautiful?".
