From my point of view the animals don't have sense of humour. I think that, because animals make me laugh by their stupid. I know that animals make our laugh but they do it completely by chance. I have two small kitties. I know that looking after that is so funny, their jumps from trees, chaising each other but this is their normal life, the same as our.

It is hard to say. I have never been an animal like dog or cat. I am certain that all people belong to realm of animals, so people can suppose that animals have a sense of humour. In my opinion animals are nearly identical as people , but people understand more. It the only differnce between people and animal. Animals like play with people. Dogs like wagging their tails. They must have a sense of humour. They are the living creatures , so they have qualities like sense of humour.

I think that animals have a sense of humour. For example, when cat is young, he want play with other cats or with his owner. Every of them scratch or accost somebody. If they don't have a GSOH they won't play and they will sleep and eat a whoooooole day.

I'm sure that animals have a sense of humour. They do funny things and we often say that our animals are very hilarious.
Young animals are crazy and for example dogs try to catch their tail and cats catch everything what is moving.
People can also watch TV programs which shows humour of animals. It always causes smile on my face ; )

I thinkt that animals have a sense of humour, beacuse thet always make us smile and laugh. They do some trick and they are very funny. I saw video where dog said "i love you". That was really hilarious. Cat trying catch a red light make me laugh too. In my opinion animals have a sense of humor and they always make us smile.

I think animals have sense of humor because sometimes we can see that cat or dog doing tricks. It's really funny and it makes that we smile. On the internet we can find videos which show for example cats trying catch a light or dogs trying catch their tail. I watch it when I have free time :)
Pets like play with owners. {-: {-;

In my opinion animals don't have sense of humor. Of course, we can see when our cat or dog jump, try to catch tail and do really comic things but I think it's not connect with sense of humor. Animals just like to play with humans . I can be wrong because i have never had any of them.

I can't answer at this question, because I've never had animal.On the one hand one day I watched carefully the hamster Bob for eight hours which was gift for my little cousin. I didn't noticed that he had sense of humour. He did't smile, jupm or play. The hamster only slept and ate. But on the other hand I watched a lot of movies in which animals did laughable things. I don't know what I should think.

I think, that animals don't have a sense of humour, but we often think like this, because animals entertain us. Animals don't do this specially. For their behaviors are responsible nature. Animals don't know, that they have a sense of humour. I suppose only people have a sense of humour, but I can't to explain why I think that.

As far as Im concerned I've never had any pets and im not pretty sure that they have sens of humor. I'm not an expert ... but Ithink Animals don't have souls so probably they are empty inside. Laughing in animals has a different function than in humans. It seems to me that we will never know the answer to this question, because we cannot ask for a animals. Unfortunately, Animals cannot talk. :)

I believe that animals don't have sense of humor, because I have a dog, which lays on the bed all days. She doesn't show any feelings. Except for times when someone has something to eat. At once you become her best friend. Dogs have brains respondent two years old children's brain. Sometimes we can imagine that they have sense of humor but this is only an illusion, because they have smile on their faces.

This is a hard question because we can not experience it. I think animals dont have a sense of humor. Often we see that the dogs moving tail which means that they are happy. However, I think this is due to the fact that animals love to play. Therefore, I think that animals do not have a sense of humor, but I could be wrong on this because I do not know about.

I never think about it. These topic is hard to discuss If I'm not a specialist about animals. In my opinion it's impossible that the pets have a sense of humour. Of course they do a funny things and merry tricks but not because they know about funny side of things which they do. It's only a human decision what make his laugh.

I don't think that animals have a sense of humor. Even when they want to play with you, they just do it because they are bored or you stole something for them. I have a dog and a cat, who are their opposites. My dog wants to play only when i stole his toy, even we he try to get it back i don't know if he is having fun 'couse he can't smile. On the other hand my cat just sleeps and eats, if you interrupt him he will scratche you - that's why even when he would be a human he wouldn't have a sense of humor. You just can't tell that animals are smiling or laughing - THEY CAN'T DO ANY OF THIS THINGS.

I don't know whether the animals have a sense of humor, because in my life I only had a fish. On the other hand I am sure that animals like the people feel the same sadness and happiness but they show it in different way.

It's hard to say for me because I have never had an animal, but I think they really have a sense of humour. I can't explain it, but I believe in it. I often see two cats or dogs which are playing with each other, and I think they can communicate with each other and that's why they are happy. I can't say how animals can understand other animals, but I think they just can.

I don't think that animals have a sense of humour. With it I mainly associate jokes. When people tell them or laught at them, we know that they have a sense of humour, but animals..? I have a dog and I often feel that he is happy when I for example come back home or when I play with him in some games, but he unfortunately doesn't understand jokes, so he can't have a sense of humour.

Lately I have been reading that monkeys like and can laugh and they laugh sounds similarly to our. But I don't think that others animals have sense of humor. For example when I come back to home my dog is enjoy that I come but he doesn't laugh when I said jokes or something funny.

I dont think so that animals have sense of humor, they can have a lot of type emotion but i never saw my cat laughing or something like this, my cat is happy, sad or bored but never saw any behavior that would indicate a sense of humor.

Animals don't have a sense of humour. That can't laugh. They can't telling jokes. They can't doing crazy mines.

This is hard question, 'cause we don't know what other person or animal {-: feel, but in my opinion- ofc they have! My Grandfather has a dog and he certainly have sense of humour! He (dog, not Grandfather {-: ) smiles, he shows us a lot of feelings every day! So- yes! :ok:
