Do you express remorse after eating a hamburger, you ridiculous harpy? Or are you more likely to belch in satisfaction and pleasure after you've crammed your face full of dead cow?<quoted text>
When did you last see an animal feeling sorrow for killing something. My cat is actually delighted and thoroughly proud of her dead prey? He also hasn't express any remorse for distroying my bedside table.
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.
I rest my case.
