This question really hits me as an animal lover, for I really love my pet, the realization that their lives were shorter than ours, I only wanted the best for them. They do not commit mistakes for their thinking capacity and decision-making skill was not of humans. Do you think they go to heaven like us?
I think NO
Hello, dear @iona090,
I think this is a difficult question, open for a lot of interpretation and personal feelings.
In my own opinion, being an animal lover myself, I don’t think that they go to the Heaven in the same “way” than us. As they don’t have free will or real self awareness. But what I think is that when you go to heaven if you want to be reunited with your dog, cat or any animal you will.
Kind regards, Luis Guerrero
I do understand your sentiments. And yes, they don’t have free will or more like a soul I think, for their thinking capacity is not the same as ours. I think it is really sweet that you will have a chance to meet your beloved pet in heaven if you dwell on it. Thanks!
