For instance, I currently have 3 cats. However they come and go as they please as we have several pet doors. One of them doesn't really go out ever, another one I can spend several weeks without seeing. I don't consider them trapped or caged, but I do know that some people oppose the idea of pets to begin with, and I'm curious whether it is what you mean.
At least I am assuming you're talking about non-humans right now. Usually, using quotation marks around the word "pet" in a BDSM thread means human submissives, but it seems that's not what you mean, or am I misunderstanding you?
I think the relationship you have with your cats is the most wonderful relationship I have yet to hear anyone practice with the concept of "pets" in relation to Humans.~ I think every single Human and non-relationship should be exactly what you have with your pets.~
Yes, I dislike Zoos.~
If I were to ever form a bond of friendship with another creature who is not Human, I would treasure that friendship.~ I treat all creatures as equals to myself and so I always try to think from their perspective Human or not.~
I've always dreamed of one day having a flying squirrel fly into my boat-house and we form a friendship.~ The flying squirrel would come and go as it pleases, I am not and would not be its' or anyone's "master" so I have no right to command them, and I would never profess "ownership" of such a wonderful creature as that would infer that I am somehow its' "master" and I am no one's master.~
