I just felt pity - real pity - for a rat. He was only a tiny little guy, running on the sidewalk near my house. He stopped as I walked by him. He looked super-cold and kind of down on his rat luck. And I truly thought, "awww, poor lil guy having to hustle around in this weather. And on a Sunday!"
Meanwhile, I hate most domestic cats for being smug. I need to get my inter-species priorities straight.
