Who said anything about equal? Different. But guess what Ink, if you were forced out in the wild with just your wits and no other provisions, how long do you think you would survive? I would give you a couple of days at best, possibly as long as a week. Depends on whether you know what berries to eat, where to find water, etc.- but chances are excellent your survival skills would not equal one of a cat.
You also wouldn't need to worry about your checking account - and speaking of - you've brought that up twice - is that a problem for you? If so, there's software that can help.
lol.

Perhaps your cat was FEELING anxious about something.
Perhaps you should have jaxson galaxy come help you. If you've not seen the show "my cat from hell" I highly recommend it.
Could be. Too bad he doesn't have the intelligence to deal with it in a constructive way. Scrathing the table is probably how bitner and playa confront their problems too.

Why do you think that animals are created mentally and emotionally different?
Nobody ever answered they just went on a tangent about humans not being superior.
Totally nonsensical comments.
Ink, I'm not going back, but I believe your original assertion was that animals don't experience emotions.

You think people are superior because we have a way to verbally convey complex thoughts/feelings and have self awareness? Goody for us. Won't matter in the long run because our time on this earth won't even come close to the longevity of dinosaurs. We're killing our planet.

That emotion seems to be misguided and inappropriate. Can you imagine if a person showed such pride and delight for toruring and killing a dog or a cat, we would have him under observation because he is showing early signs of a serial killer.
Perhaps you should take all the toys away from your cat and leave him/her alone since you think they don't have feelings and you feel resentment towards your cat for daring to deface "your things".

Maybe you should just tell your cat that everything is yours.

How do you know what is constructive to a cat?
Getting to the root of why your cat is scratching something up is more important than your things, wouldnt you say? Perhaps putting more scratching posts around your place or playing with the kitty more would be more constructive (in your eyes).

I don't know you or the cat, but I'm just making suggestions,ink. I'd much rather talk about cats and dogs anyway. It's probably a subject we could actually find common ground on.

It's amazing that some Christians think that humans are superior to other animals. We're different, yes, and have the ability to control other species, but superior? I think we've proved that that's not true.

I'll go back for you. My orignal question is the one I told you about why we are made differently.

Another comment was
You forgot conscience and an array of other emotional feelings.

I never said animals don't experience emotions. That was other people saying I said it.

I said that compared to humans they were limited and usually pertain to survival.

And yes, I do certainly think we were created to be superior and good stewards of all other things.

Elise, if they begged you literally to pull a plug or give them a few extra pain pills they could stockpile, would you?

Legally, no. You could be convicted of manslaughter if caught? Or something - not up on the legal terms. Who in their right mind would take that chance? Not me. I like the illusion that I'm free, but if I decided time for a swan, I'm going. Kinda hope I'll be missed though... at least by a few.(Likely not Ink.:-)

That's my point what is constuctive to a cat like filing their nails on my table shouldn't be the same with people. Although it is a funny thought to see bitner getting a manicure by digging the finish off of her bureau.

It's amazing that you consider yourself on a par with an eel.

You would only be superior if you contributed more to society than said eel. Probably not.

Of course, we can't, legally. Ethically, I don't truly know when I would or wouldn't do such a thing. However, when someone is a hospice patient and actively dying, they have already expressed a wish to be allowed to die. We generally administer medications and other treatments that give physical and emotional comfort. Those treatments do ease the patient to an easier death, if not a quicker one.

Cats don't care. Everything exists for their pleasure. Gotta love cats:-)

I'm going to back off on the insulting for now in favor of talking about any dog or cat issues.

I get your point and I don't know if cats think in terms of constructiveness or destructiveness, but does that make the act of scratching something up wrong or evil? Some might see that as doing something wrong, but the cat might have a health issue or might just be craving play or attention. Perhaps the cat is trying to communicate something to you, even if it is just to say "I'm here". They make sticky tape or something like that To help reduce excessive scratching.

See, i can be nice once in a while :-)

Your bedside table doesn't mean shit to your cat - it's not what he'd try to save in a dangerous situation, although you might, even if you could save him instead.

Having the ability to control other animals doesn't make one superior. You really aren't clever or witty.

My cat didn't eat the mouse only tortured it and proudly left the dead thing next to his full plate of food.
As far as my table goes since I feed and shelter him, shouldn't he be respectful of my property or isn't he capable of that, emotionally?
Did your God create cats and make them the way they are?

You really don't know that for a fact. Have you ever cried and had a pet come over and cuddle with you? My dogs have, and I strongly belief they sensed my distress.

My point would be that cats are incapable of evil. They don't have the thought process to be evil. People do.
