Good point. My cat is definitely possessed by a good angel though.  He just came to me to double check my on-line habits :-).

Animal souls are a tough one.  There is simply no way to know.  IF the animal soul perceives qualia, there's no way to discover it, as the perception of qualia is immaterial.  An animal can't show you perception of pain anymore than you can show me your perception of "red" qua "red".

I'll revert back to agreeing with whatever Catholic philosophers and theologians state.  And perhaps it can be traced to revealed Truth.
"But he that doth not believe, is already judged: because he believeth not in the name of the only begotten Son of God (Jn 3:18)."

"All sorrow leads to the foot of the Cross.  Weep for your sins."

"Although He should kill me, I will trust in Him"
