lots of animals are food
As a vegetarian I'd like to disagree Smile | :)
The animals you eat are especially social and intelligent.
And they're treated so horrible that lots of people wouldn't eat meat for a while if they saw it with their own eyes.

Unfortunately, that's true Sigh | :sigh:
I have ants in my house now.
Normally I'd love ants, like when I spot them in a forest, but NOT in my house.
I feel bad for every ant I kill though Frown | :(

You say "undomesticated" rats, but the fact that we can domesticate them should be an indication of their intelligence.
I wouldn't want to kill an undomesticated rat, but I also wouldn't want them in my house, obviously.
The rat just lives its life and it can't really help it is what it is, it's certainly not out to hurt me.
I'd try a non-violent approach if possible.

Not so much for flies, death to all!
I wasn't always like that, but I once had a fly plague.
Killed 5+ flies every time I entered my bedroom, sometimes even 10+, and I still don't know where they came from Sigh | :sigh:
That was when I still lived with my parents.
Once I moved out they never saw a fly again (and no, I didn't live dirty or anything) Unsure | :~

Anyway, I wasn't talking about pets specifically.
People kill and mistreat all manner of animals just because they don't like animals or an animal living somewhere is inconvenient.
Or because we want a fur coat or because some people somewhere believe elephant teeth and rhino horns can cure erectile dysfunction Dead | X|
Bullfighting, foie gras, hunting, fishing, cockfights...
If everyone treated animals with some respect we wouldn't have COVID-19 either, just saying... Unsure | :~

So yeah, animals.
