    If you are an animal owener, you know that a dog or a cat can feel like kin.

    What does the undelined part mean? Does it mean "a cat or a dog feels like being a member of a family" or "dog oweners consider a cat or a dog a as a memeber of their family"?

    If you are an animal owner, you know that a dog or a cat can feel like kin.

    It means that you might feel like your dog or cat is like a member of your family.

    Thank you.
    If we wanted to change the sentence in the way animals felt like a member of family, what it would be like?

    I can't talk about what an animal feels.

    Is the sentence below OK too?
    If you are an animal owener, you know that a dog or a cat can make kin.

    That one doesn't make sense.

    Re: I you are an animal owener, you know that a dog or a cat can feel like kin.

    Be careful with your spelling. You used "owener" twice, "memeber" once and "undelined" once. The words are "owner", "member" and "underlined".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
