    I know people who treat them like each of the three. Some act casual, like they are "only animals", others are the polar opposite and act like they are their children. I fall in the middle and treat my dog, as if I am hanging out with my buddies. What say you Sherbros?

    Child, definitely. This makes sense since they depend on us for most all of their survival needs.

    My wife & I both treat our cats, Harley Quinn & Odd Thomas, like the little children they are. I mean, they are only two & three years old. What do you expect? :D

    I treat my little buddy like a kid to meet his needs (survival and behavioral) and like a friend all other times. Because he is my best friend. but he does need me to be the dad sometimes too, for his own good.
    I hope to treat my kids (when they grow up - currently baby and another unborn) the same way.

    Definitely not a child. Children can be disappointments. Dogs are always fucking awesome.

    Family. I treat other peoples "family" as friends. I eat cows, pigs, fish, birds and other four legged friends.

    No such thing as "Only Animals" around this motherfucker.

    The protective function of Cats is indicated in the Book of the Dead. MotherFUCKER.
