I wish there was this much public sympathy for sick people

Although I have never personally had a pet, I've learned to like my various relatives' cats (even though I'm allergic to them) and dogs, and I am all for taking care of sick animals and sparing them pain. I wish Barbaro a long and healthy life. But this article made me wonder why sick animals draw such outpourings of love and sympathy and sick people often don't.
