    Perhaps somewhat apropos of this, I object to those sad television commercials, usually narrated by a “celebrity” urging me to adopt poor, sad animals from a shelter. Why? Because they attempt to play on my natural human sympathies, and sort of imply that I’m a bad person if I don’t take in one of the misused creatures they show.

    I take the responsibility factor, and the view you espouse, to be very important. Nobody who does not of their own volition care to live with a non-human mammal has the “responsibility” to do so. I’d suggest that if someone were inveigled into keeping a “pet” against their actual inclination, they’d have a hard time giving that creature everything it needs.
