Can animals engage in bestiality?
There are four cats who roam my abode; all male; all neutered. One of them, the one to whom I have previously referred as Botox Cat (because his total lack of facial expression makes him appear to have had Botox injections) has recently revealed himself to be either:
- Really stupid,
- Blind (doubt it; he's not that old)
- Anosmic (ditto), or
But this morning I caught BC trying to get it on with the dog. Ok, so the dog is the same size and shape as most of the cats, but geez -- it's a dog! Ew. Gross. Stop that!! Besides, the poor little doggie looked so confused. I couldn't blame her. I whisked her up and we headed in to work, leaving Botox Cat to ponder his perversity -- though frankly I don't think he has enough synapses for any meaningful pondering.
Yet the question remains: does interspecies coitus constitute "bestiality"?
