    ALL THE TIME

    And of course it's cutesy talk, too. Well, sometimes. I do talk seriously to her at times.

      No, I treat them to stone cold silence and lock them in the dungeon should they dare withhold affection. My lovers get the same treatment, obviously. Can't have them thinking that they're above guinea pigs. No sir. I don't even feed them lettuce.

      But ahem, of course I speak to them! How else are they supposed to know that they're pwecious?

      HOW CAN YOU NOT? animals like to hear the sound of their companion human's voice.

      plus, it's a nice way to interact with them. they pay attention and know you're addressing them, it's fun. i love asking my little kitties what they're up to and how they're feeling and what they're exploring. they're such funny personalities, i could never leave them alone like that. i love them.

      I don't have long drawn out conversations but I definitely talk to them in passing.
      They seem to prefer that to being ignored weirdly enough.

        they must know about the sliding scale of how good/bad they are and the impact of good/bad when factoring in the current popularity of other animals in the house

        I love talking to Simba! :3 He seems to show lots of interest in what I have to say, too ^_^

        Simba also gets very calm when he listens to certain types of music.

          I don't hold full blown conversations with them, of course, but yes, I talk to my two dogs, especially since I'm still trying to train my puppy.

          I sing to my little boy too <3

          I can sense that he finds me entertaining. xD

          Singing on dog walks, is especially fun. But yesterday when I walked in the snow a second time, I just stayed quiet so I could admire the pretty whiteness :3

          Living with Simba is a lot of fun. I hope he still has a good amount more years left. It would be hard to replace him when he dies, anyways (my mom doesn't want other pets also i think it wouldn't feel right to get another pet for awhile :< cuz i'm very attached to Simba :3)

            My dog has been dead for about a year now, but when she was alive and around I definitely talked to her. She was always such a good listener when I needed it.

            Yes, I have talked to my dog many times. Being a whippet he wouldn't respond too much with sounds... unless it had to do with going on a walk, then he would whine and so forth, haha.

              I definitely talk to my lizard in a baby voice. Talking to her in a high pitch voice is pretty much the only way to get her attention anyway

              Like everyone else, yes I do also. Sometimes I even also blow them kisses or sing some cutesy to them. One of my cats doesn't like it when I blow her a kiss though haha.

              that’s so interesting bc i wouldn’t have thought lizards/reptiles in general would have been interested in so much as turning their heads towards humans in this case lmao

                I tell my cat that there’s nothing to run around the house like crazy, but when he doesn’t understand with words, sneakers fly into him and he becomes very quiet, so I’m talking to a cat.

                I talk to my cat constantly, usually to tell him he's being a sweet boy or a bad boy, or a good sweet terrible boy.

                If I'm standing near a door to the outside or in the kitchen he'll talk to me too, but usually just to yell at me for not letting him outside or feeding him whatever human food I've just gotten for myself.
