I had two cats and one dog before. I think animals have dreams. I remember when they were sleeping, sometimes they made some sounds and sometimes they were chewing as if they were having food. That's very cute.

All warm-blooded animals are dreaming, birds included. My previous cat was often hunting or fighting during his dreams and was giving scratches in the air.

@prashu228 I have not read any book, but there are a lot scientific studies about that since about 20 years. Here a link to one of these studies, done by the MIT. It is usually admitted that cold-blooded animals do not dream, but there are some recent researches questioning that.
Study may advance understanding of human learning and memory.

Perhaps it also shows warm-blooded are smarter.

I'm sure they do. I love a dog or cat running in their sleep, making those little yipping noises and moving their legs, lol. I haven't noticed my birds seeming to have dreams, but I sure have noticed it in dogs and cats I've had.

It seems my dogs had excited dreams than my cats as my cats usually slept quietly.

I think they do dream. At times they growl in their sleep.

I think most of their dreams may concern about eating and playing

Yes I do think dogs at least have dreams. Harleys tail will wag when she is sleeping or she will move her legs like she is running. It is all very cute.

Yes they do, one hound dog would bark and his feet would be moving like he was running.

I believe they do. My dog Jasper will be whimpering and move his legs while he is sleeping. I assume he is dreaming about running.

It is cute. I think animals have dreams. Molly, our pup, sure looks like she is dreaming when she makes little sounds and her legs start moving while she sleeps.

When I watch my Sophie sleep she looks so peaceful and I wonder if she is dreaming about something nice.

I think so too. Animals had a dream. I saw my uncle's dog, when it sleeps, there's one time the dog moves its leg and then stop. Hahah, so cute.
