Discussion on pet, human interaction set

Discussion on pet, human interaction set

How pets interact with humans will be explored at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree Cafe 3101 Campus Drive.

The program, "What's Your Pet Trying To Tell You?," explores how animals think and interact with humans. In an exclusive filmed interview, an animal communicator will share accounts of conversations with household pets.

"People with pets often say they communicate with their animals," said Lifetree representative Craig Cable. "This program provides an opportunity to share those stories and to discover what science tells us about the capacity of animals to interact with humans."

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages will be available.

Lifetree Cafe is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.

Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Cable at (970) 292-4838 or
