I think, therefore I amino acid.

Because I believe everything I read on the Internet…

and Google is always right!

Hate to break it to you, but some things in science are governed by consensus, like Climate Change.

That being said, the consensus online is that, in fact, cats do havefree will!

And a subject we failed to touch on is that cats act as an operator that removes free will from humans.

And in case you wanted to know the Jewish and Philosophical answers. Which I am apt to agree with in fact (That pets don’t have free will as such because they don’t have the moral capacity.)

However, all sources agree that higher order animals (like cats) have the capacity to make decisions (just not moral ones). Moreover, cats, dogs, apes, monkeys, dolphins, rodents, ocelots, etc. certainly have an emotional capacity. [They’d be pretty terrible pets if they didn’t.]

So, maybe they don’t have Free Will as such, but I would feel pretty terrible about imprisoning a fellow being who has the capacity to make a choice and feel the consequences of its decision.

MORAL: I am too much of a puto to own a pussy-cat here. Maybe I should move to Los Gatos.
