    Man, what have you been doing to your dogs? Never done that to me before. Never even heard of it.

    What, from two posters? Have you ever seen a cat with a live mouse?

    I don't have dogs, but I know at least two people who have had this happen. And surely you've heard of dogs chewing up shoes or shredding papers or destroying the apartment because they're mad at their owner?

    A mouse is a cat's natural prey. Any predatory, canivorous animal could behave in this manner with its prey. Including a dog with a rabbit.

    Well, no different from a kid. Sort of.

    No, most predatory, carnivorous animals kill their prey as quick as they can. They don't spend hours torturing it.

    I love cats, though I'm not an INFP.

    The sadism is part of their appeal, don't trust me.

    I used to squirt my cat every time he licked himself... and the cat would in turn find ways to annoy me.

    Sigh. I miss playing sadistic games with my cat.

    Kids can be very sadistic, so I don't understand what you're getting at.

    If your kid was very sadistic, would you let him/her be? Would you consider it part of their nature, or even part of their appeal?

    I realized after I made the poll that my feelings towards cats are too ambivalent for the options I provided. I quite like some things about them but hate others.
