Empathy is sharing an experience with someone and feeling what they feel because you have gone through, or done the same thing or a similar thing as them. I showed empathy towards one of my cousins because her cat is old and can’t do everything on his own anymore. She was wondering if she should put him down or not. I have experienced something similar to that. My first real pet, Ducky, was a tabby cat. Just a few years ago, he got a tumor. I didn’t know if I should put him down or not either. I told her that I knew exactly what she was going through and was also sad for her cat.
My cousin’s cat is Siamese.
