    I would.

    Though do we have a hob and a spice rack in this desert or not?

    It's the only reason I have pets.

    I'm kidding, I don't have any pets.

    Anymore...

    You'd make the worst Dr Who ever.
    I don't get the reference. I've only watched a few episodes of Doctor Who, thought it was rubbish.

    It was natural causes honestly...

    My last pet (a dog) did actually nearly die while under my care. I say nearly, she did die but just after my parents came back from holiday. Not my fault, she was really old, and I didn't eat her

      I would make the cat leave before it got to that situation. He's been far too good a companion for that to enter my mind.

      But then, seeing as he is a cat, we probably wouldn't starve. He'd be bringing stuff to me (as he does anyway) - the difference being that I'd cook what he brought home.

      I eat my pets everyday.

      Then again I live on a farm.

      No way, I love my pet dog I've had him since he was born and I've grown up with him....couldn't even think of such a thing.

      If we both ever do find ourselves in a situation where we're both starving, I'd do everything in my power to ensure both of our survival. If I find food, whatever little it may be, I will half it and give it to him.

      If it started to look like I'd never find any food, I'd let my dog go free. I couldn't bare to eat him.

      It depends on if there's the possibility of more food later. If it's going to be able to see me through till then, then it's quite likely that I would.

      If however, it's just one more meal, and then back to starving and no hope of food, that changes everything.

      No, because by the time I was starving to death, it would have been days since I had slaughtered the last animal close to hand for food.

      Nope. I wouldn't be able to bring myself to do it with any animal that was there, let alone my pets.

      i'd like to think not, especially considering she only weighs three pounds so that wouldn't be much food, but you never know. our nature instinct is to survive, and if people in the past have eaten family members for food, who's to say we wouldn't eat our own pets?

      I don't think there's much meat to be had off a presumably starving cat. Also I think by that point they'd be faster than me.
