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.

Be careful with your spelling. You used "owener" twice, "memeber" once and "undelined" once. The words are "owner", "member" and "underlined".
