Civil liberities: animals are better off

I just learned that wearing a collar with metal
spikes on it constitutes a criminal offence in
Massachussets, and people get actually fined and
arrested. Your dog can wear a spiked collar, but
you can't. The dogs can also run around naked,
have sex with any other dog they want, freely cross
national borders, dance in the street (which is prohibited
to humans in NY) and do many other things humans can't.
They sell catnip in Boston pet stores that affects
cats more than marijuana affects humans...

Soon they'll allow to increase intelligence of pets,
in absence of prohibitive laws.
So we'll see trans-cats and trans-dogs, but no
trans-humans. Unless they wear dog suits.
Which may be illegal...
