What Domestic Animal Were You In A Previous Life?



Reincarnation is one of the most interesting topics in various religions, the most prominent of it is Hinduism. It is said that every soul on this planet is in a cycle of rebirths. There the ultimate goal of life is to set oneself free from this cycle. In religious texts it is called as ‘Moksha’. Many of the Hindu saints have dedicated their life in doing good to the society with the aim of attaining Moksha. According to scriptures it is also said that to born as a human the soul must have many good deeds in their account.

Another interesting fact about this concept of rebirths is that the brain retains certain memories of the past life. They might not be accurate but still it is said that some of your traits come from your previous reincarnations. Now you know the concept of reincarnation. Believing in it or not is in your hands as Science doesn’t have any evidence to support it. If you are still reading then it is pretty much evident that you are interested in it. It is very likely that in your previous lives you were an animal.

Let us imagine that you were a pet in your previous life in an alternate universe. Scientists speculate that there are multiple parallel universes. If you take parallel universes into account then it seems pretty fascinating. There are have been multiple bizzare events around the world which cites this theory as an explanation. Conspiracy theorists have especially used it as a way to spice up their reasoning behind extraordinary events.

While it is also true that there are not facts supporting this theory. Some scientists believe that we lack the technology to prove it and it is possible that we would get that technology in the future. There are many more interesting theories regarding various extraordinary cases. I have presented before you the theories and also stated if there has been any facts supporting the same.

Now let us talk about the relationship of humans with animals. It is said that dogs are the closest to humans. We have been keeping dogs as pets from a very long time. They are said to be the most loyal out of all animals. This is why humans have found love and companionship. It is true that pets could also give you emotional support and dogs are the best in it. It has been seen time and again animals risking their lives to save their masters from danger. Animals have long gotten those high standards of loyalty which we humans crave for.

Animals are also special for the fact that they are not greedy as we humans. Like for example a tiger would only hunt if he is hungry. Our greedy nature is the reason behind many of the chaos in our society. The nature also gets affected due to it. Millions of animals lose their lives due the destruction we cause to nature. It is all known to humans about the different mechanisms of nature but still we don’t protect them. We had also developed the technologies for it but mostly we don’t employ it because it would reduce the profits. We have seen it happening recently in the Australian bush fires when millions of animals lost their lives in a matter of days. Bush fires are common in Australia but this year it was the worst in its history. We should start being sensible and realize the fact that animals and humans could co-exist even with our modern lifestyle. We should not only care for our pets but we should also take care of all the wild animals as they are part of multiple chains which keeps our Earth a suitable planet to live in. We might be exploring the space for potential habitable planets but be rest assured for at least a few million years this is our only home. If we take care of our natural ecosystems then it would not only help us but also our future generations. We should act on these issues as soon as possible because sooner or later it is going to affect us only. Now that we have talked about the relation of animals with us we should now be talking about some of the more interesting facts about the most common pets cats and dogs.

Let us start it with our loyal friend: Dog

  • Research shows that dogs only sweat from the bottoms of their feet, and the only way they discharge heat is by panting.
  • As we all know that animals don’t speak but you might have noticed that they sound differently in different situations. Dogs are said to have about 10 different vocal sounds.
  • Humans have one organ that dogs don’t have. Can you guess what is it? It is nothing but appendix.
  • Humans may have a thousand different expressions but dogs manage to convey themselves only with 100. Most of them are made from their ears.
  • If you don’t like a dog breed then don’t worry there are 350 different types of dogs worldwide.
  • Did you know that Dalmatians are born spotless. They are born as pure whites and develop spots in the later phase of their lives.
  • Unlike many other animal dogs are not color blind. They can see yellow, blue, green and grey. The basic color red are seen as grey in a dog’s vision.
  • Dogs may not be as fast as the Cheetahs but still they are pretty damn fast. Domestic dogs could reach up to a speed of nineteen miles per hour.
  • Domesticated for more than 10,000 years, the dog was one of the first animals domesticated by humans.


Now let us move to cats:

  • Cats don’t have sweat glands.
  • While they might not qualify for Olympics but cats could jump seven times of their height.
  • Compared to dogs cats have 100 different vocal sounds.
  • This one really shocked me. Cats are faster than dogs. They could run at a speed of 12 miles per hour while they can sprint at nearly thirty miles per hour.
  • A cat’s tongue is scratchy because it’s lined with papillae—tiny elevated backwards hooks that help to hold prey in place.
  • Similar to human fingerprints cats have unique pattern of ridges in their nose pads.

While we have listed the most interesting facts about cats and dogs I am sure that there are certainly more than that. It is also advisable that you check with your veterinary doctor before believing any of the facts we had stated as we are not professionals of the field.
