Here’s a card on changing someone’s mind by drawing attention to empathizing with why what they’re doing is hurting you. It helps get their mind on why you’re asking.
Pet owners go through an “imprinting” process just like with babies where they literally can’t empathize with the trouble pets can cause others. So focus on statements like, “this hurt me because…” or “this impacts the community because…”
