Some theosophists claim the same lack of animal soul(s). Like you, I
don't accept this one bit. Kabbalah speaks of the *nephesh* or *animal
soul* - which it refers to as part of US. We live in animal bodies,
just like dolphins, cats, dogs, and probably all mammals. It is
probably true (I would say certainly) that we all have grousp souls as
well, and on a much larger scale of things, a gigantic "mammalian" group
soul which includes ourselves, dolphins, cats, etc., etc.
