"Kidnapping" only really applies to exotic animals culled from the wild. Nobody "kidnapped" my cats; their ancestors showed up in some Scandinavian barn like 1000 year ago and they've been mooching off humans ever since.

As the perception of the dignity of human life lowers among people the false romantic value of animal life rises, at least in the present culture of the USA. The very notion that people consider an animal to be a "family member" is degenerate.
