Hey there, Zaphod!
Really glad you quoted me, because it gives me a chance to tell you this:
I sometimes forget to feed my dog yet I know he still loves me, because he hasn't used his 30kg / 66lbs muscular body to smother me while I'm sleeping. Or use them huge canine teeth of his to tear into me.
And to your most recent and I must say, riveting comment of which I have quoted, I say this to you:
...and what we are looking at here, ladies and gentlemen, is someone who epically fails to understand how to appreciate someone's views due to their own selfish and perhaps nonsense 'reasoning'.
And if you do have an animal in your household, I really do feel sorry for them.
