Cats will act on instinct and attack and possibly kill any creature they regard as prey,they do NOT kill "just for fun".

Let's see here...An atheist inquires about whether animals have souls? lol. Makes no sense to me.
But, animals do display empathetic behaviour all the time, if that was one of your points.
What does a soul necessarily have to do with a creator?edit on 13-9-2012 by SpearMint because: (no reason given)

Well, one thing that gets me is that most if not all crustaceans (Crabs, Lobsters, etc.) cannot go into shock when they are injured. Shock is the way the brain makes an organism stop feeling pain. This is why many cooks have to muffle the sounds of their cooking pots because of the "screaming" while the crustacean is boiled. Thus, the crustacean feels the pain until it dies. Someone tell me a good reason God gave them the ability to scream besides to express pain that is felt by them. This is one of the many reasons why I became a vegan, and this type of boiling-alive method is considered animal cruelty to at least one animal activist community.
