No, Schrödinger has nothing to do with it. Sorry and all that.
Seems like a good time to answer a plea from an old and dear friend that ended up in me website email inbox:
When one puts animals in books, one should include a wide spectrum of emotions not just good/bad animals. Like us, they are complex living beings with a wide variety of emotions. In short, we are tired of reading about one dimensional animals!!
And yes, in case you were wondering: there is snark. Of course. What the fuck else did you expect from moi?
