Clover,the only animal seems to suspect that things on the Farm aren't the way they had planned.Why doesn't she tell her suspicions to others?

Why doesn't she consider a rebellion and why is she still willing to follow Napoleon?

Clover does try to make the other animals see that they are being exploited but no one believes her. Instead, they believe the smooth talking Squealer. Even she falls prey to Squealer's explanations when she questions the changes to the fourth commandment, " no animal shall sleep in a bed" to "no animal shall sleep in a bed with sheets. After Squealer talks to her, she accepts his explanation. She tries to run after Boxer when he be being taken away to the knackers, but she is not fast enough. Unfortunately, the other animals are too apathetic and/or too naive to believe her warnings. If they won't believe her in small things, Clover knows they won't follow her in rebellion.
