In my experience of dogs, they don't know whether they've pleased me or displeased me, and there is apparently no way for me to communicate this to them.

I think the fact that dogs are highly trainable would contradict your experience. My dog explicitly understands at least a dozen words and is keenly aware of tone of voice. I have identified four or five different barks that he uses to communicate with me. For example, his 'let me in' bark is very distinct from his 'I have treed a squirrel' bark.

Not only is he aware of my mood toward him but he has shown evidence of anticipating it.

Gives them terrible gas too.

Don't ever feed them eggs.

Can your cat do this?
