If there's a distinction, it's purely a cultural one. I'm an urban girl who's never been in contact with a horse; all I'm saying is, I've been conditioned to relate more to a certain animal. Had I been raised in a different place, I'd relate more to a different animal.
In any case, no, breeding is wrong no matter what animal it is, and no, leather couches are not fine. Honestly, I kind of respect a person less if they have a leather couch. And no - not ok to rape or eat a feral cat.
