animals are machines made of meat.
They do not suffer, at least not in any way commensurable to human experience. Certainly, they have souls [read yr Aristotle]. Having a "soul" merely means that it can move of its own power [it doesn't even necessarily mean the thing is alive only when it has a soul, which is why most modern propagandistic pro-abortion readings of ancient medical texts are irresponsible]. Beware of anybody with too strong an attachment to their pets.
