I'm a capitalist, and proud of it. But even I don't operate under that illusion.
You don't understand the US Constitution, or property rights. It is the most basic of principals this country was founded on. In fact all other rights come from the idea of property and ownership.

domestic lynx.true polydactyly... is not life-threatening and usually not even debilitating to a cat. Some polydactyl kittens initially have more difficulty in learning to walk than normal animals. However in some cases polydactyly appears to improve the dexterity of the animal. For example, a common variation with six toes on the front paws, with two opposing digits on each (comparable in use to human thumbs), enables the cat to learn and perform feats of manual dexterity generally not observed in non-polydactyl cats, such as opening latches or catching objects with a single paw.
Although there is some controversy over whether the most common variant of the trait originated as a mutation in New England or was brought there from England, there seems to be agreement that it spread widely as a result of cats carried on ships originating in Boston, and the prevalence of polydactylism among the cat population of various ports correlates with the dates when they first established trade with Boston. Contributing to the spread of polydactyl cats by this means, sailors were long-known to especially value polydactyl cats for their extraordinary climbing and hunting abilities as an aid in controlling shipboard rodents.
There are plenty of cat breeds that have wild felid genes. They're still considered domestic housecats. Again, every cat is different, just as every breed is different - each has individual traits often not found in other breeds.This new breed was created in the 1980s in the United States by crossing the small bobcat and Canadian lynx with domestic cats. “The ideal in breeding is a cat as similar as possible either to the bobcat or to the Canadian lynx or jungle cat (Felis chaus), with the gentle, trusting nature of a domestic cat”.
Confirmed domestic Cat/ Felid Hybrids
Some pairings have given rise to more than one breed developed under different registries and bred to different standards for appearance and different percentages of wild felid genes. They are therefore different breeds, not synonyms.
* Bengal : domestic Cat / Asian Leopard Cat (Prionailurus bengalensis bengalensis)
* Bristol (cat) : domestic Cat / Margay (Leopardus wiedii)
* Chausie : domestic Cat / Jungle Cat aka Swamp Cat (Felis chaus)

* Cheetoh : Bengal / Ocicat
* Jungle-Bob : Pixie-bob / Jungle Cat aka Swamp Cat (F. Chaus)
* Jungle-Curl : Hemingway Curl (polydactyl x American Curl) / Jungle Cat aka Swamp Cat (Felis chaus)
* Machbagral and/or Viverral : domestic Cat / Fishing Cat (Prionailurus viverrinus)
* Pantherette : Pixie-bob / Asian Leopard Cat (Prionailurus bengalensis)
* Punjabi (cat) : domestic Cat /Indian Desert-Cat (a variety of Asiatic Wildcat) (Felis s. ornata)

It was not torture in my opinion. If you don't like it, too bad for you.
Your one cat that you say could be immobilized by a simple towel is so silly, I don't even know why you brought it in. Notice no one has mentioned such a feeble beast outside of you? I wonder why?
I had a 3 legged cat and you would never know he was missing a leg. Animals adapt to their situation just like every other animal.
Just because all cats are different has no bearing at all on this. None. I mean that pretty much is your argument. Because all cats are different, some how piercing makes them unstable. I have shown in the case of MOST cats, this is just not true.
This is indeed about property. As I mentioned before all other rights extend from property, period.
