Pets don't come out good in this one. Large, foul-tasting, ugly indoor pets appear to be bad for the environment (and maybe just plain bad). Small, cute outdoor pets that are eaten may be the way of the future. Squirrels maybe?
Bottom Line: We usually do things that make us happy, not because it's the "right" thing to do. Does that mean we need to redefine "right"or "happy""?
