You or I may not think they are on an equal basis. Cats think they are superior
to us and have consented to let us have the privilege of living with them.
Abuse them and they'll run taking their chances elsewhere. One man I knew had
his male cat neutered and when he brought him home from the vet the cat jumped
out the window never to be seen again.

Is that comment based on personal experience? What do elementals taste like and
would one be a vegetarian if one ate one? <hee-hee>
