I am pretty sure that any reasonable human being, if given the ACTUAL choice to leave a human baby in a fire and to leave a cat in a fire, would choose to save the baby. I don’t think that is what people are really even saying…they are saying, the first thought I would have would be of my cat/dog/whatever. The OP’s first thought in a fire would be of her cat; the mother’s first thought would be of her baby. I know my first thought would be my cat…but I would definitely save the HELPLESS humans before the cat.

I, ____, take you, ____, to be my lawfully wedded(husband/wife), to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until the house is burning down and I choose the cat death do us part.
Is this real life? lol

Very interesting thought – and I agree! People can say what they’d pick all they want…but who could really turn their back on a helpless baby and live with themselves?
Eva Peron, for the win!

I have absolutely no respect for, and in fact am horrified by, anyone who would put the life of any animal above the life of any human. So there. Find a way to argue with that – I dare you.

This. I truly can’t in my life imagine someone ACTUALLY leaving a helpless baby in a burning building. It just doesn’t seem possible.

Why is this necessary, you don’t have to be mean like this. OP was just sharing a story, she apologized, her friend wouldn’t drop it. Does she have to call her again? Maybe. But gosh, I don’t understand how being snarky like this will help anybody. It’s just cruel and not funny.

I’m actually not being snarky in the least. A post like that would not
go over well I’m imagining. Please don’t try to police my posts, thank you.

So you would have saved Hitler, Ted Bundy, or some child molester, over a beloved pet?

‘s hypothetical was mean, but calling a friend’s newborn a useless snot maker whose life is less valuable than an animal’s is okay, because it’s just a different belief? Well, that’s new to me. I guess I’m out of touch.

@KatyElle: Police my posts.
lol How did you reach that conclusion? I just don’t understand why you have to be mean about it. Simple as that, no need for more rudeness. I really wasn’t trying to start something. & you’re welcome I guess…?

I stick to my earlier statement – a human life is more valuable than an animal’s. End of story.
