Human prerogatives

I do not deny animals their curiosity but it would be interesting to know if they ask WHY?, if when they communicate they wonder and ponder. This WHY? wondering is, in my imagination, the privilege of human beings. I guess my entire theory would be instantly deconstructed if we were to learn that cats wonder why it is a rainy day or if lions ask why leaves fall off of trees every now and then. Is it a question I honestly wish to know the answer to?! Perhaps I am safer in my superiority bubble such as I see it – let’s maintain status quo!
