"Don't tell Leo the lion, Baloo the bear and Shere Khan the tiger that they're different species...Lion and tiger and bear, oh my! For 13 years, Baloo, Leo and Shere Khan have been best friends.

Dr. Christian Bernard performed the world’s first human heart transplant in 1967, had the following to say about his observations of a chimpanzee:

"I bought two male chimps from a primate colony in Holland. They lived next to each other in separate cages for several months before I used one as a [heart] donor. When we put him to sleep in his cage in preparation for the operation, he chattered and cried incessantly. We attached no significance to this, but it must have made a great impression on his companion, for when we removed the body to the operating room, the other chimp wept bitterly and was inconsolable for days. The incident made a deep impression on me. I vowed never again to experiment with such sensitive creatures.”

willingness to face, feel, 
live through,
 and recover
from difficult events 
such as the loss of a beloved pet.
