oh my, so cute. i'm actually not the kind of person who squeezes for every shit, but this is really so cute and touching! this picture shows one reason more to love animals ^^ (animals exept humans, of course)
only animals with sick soul are humans i mean... humans are the only ones who kill for fun (okay, cats often do, too), they're the only ones who take much more than they need and they're the only ones who invent things that could kill themselves. "a mouse would never get the idea to build a mousetrap." aaah~ i shouldn't get into a fuss that early in the morning
I never said the word 'food'. I said 'fun'.. when they're playing with stuff, most of the time they probably don't even know they're killing it. I also do know they have brains. Thought it's very likely they DON'T think the same way as humans or even other animals do. So the notion of killing could be something else in their heads.
Of course they don't have the same thought processes as we do but plenty of animals play with their prey food. There have been countless accounts of big cats killing animals and not keeping/eating the kill.
We don't know what they think. But I think it's ignorant to think that they aren't aware of what they are doing.
They 'play' because of the instinct. While stupid humans kill for 'fun' knowing very well what they're doing. The point I was trying to make is that animals killing stuff is pretty different from humans doing it. They don't do it for fun. Plus being aware of their actions is different from being aware they're killing something. Take toddlers for an example.
And I really doubt cats or any other animal has the same way of thinking as humans. When they kill, it's not for fun. Cats killing differs from humans killing. They don't kill thinking: 'Oh, I'm killing this! I'm killing it!' it's just not the same thing.
