I hate to weigh in on a thread like this, because I know it's bound to be filled with low-IQ inspaniduals, but what matters to each person is totally subjective and I'm not particularly offended by the notion that a man might choose his dog's life over mine, or a woman might choose a cat's life over mine, especially if I were a stranger. Pets are family to some. Nothing strange about it. It just ain't that novel an idea.
