    A great many do, even the wee insect sort. Moths navigate by moon and starlight.

    Same reason a dung beetle will move its ball of dung straight back to its home.

    One fascinating thing observing them, no moon, they can get lost.

    With moon, they navigate in a straight line irregardless of obstacles. They will push a ball of dung over a boulder rather than around it.

    Moths get confused with artificial lights like porch lights and street lights, ever notice them buzzing round and round a light, hey are lost.

    Bats are far from blind, they navigate to their roost with stars and moonlight.

    They certainly notice them as they notice the big bright star (the sun) in the day.  Humans are a type of animal, but I'm sure you mean non-human animals.  Many animals don't have as sharp of vision as humans.  Their vision is typically more peripheral (a bigger field of vision) but it less precise.  It may be hard for most of them to focus on any particular star like we can.  Most mammals are nocturnal with good night vision and would depend on the stars for their much of sight at night.

    Most animals don't even look up. That is why hunting from tree stands is favored by hunters.

    Shakespeare once said the stars are made of ice, thus the night is cold.

    Yes, but they don't understand what they are like we do. They just register them as specks of light in the sky. The moon however has been linked to certain patterns of behavior.
