You said you enjoy it a little, but you clarified that you just feel no empathy. This is what I understand from your post. It doesnít sound to me like you are taking a sadistic pleasure in it. Am I correct?

Killing a pest insect without a second thought is most common. Killing with sadistic pleasure is concerning.

I think the main thing is I donít believe they feel pain the same as humans and other animals. I enjoy it in the way a hunter enjoys hunting...I like chasing and catching them but once again, I donít think they suffer the same way as other creatures so itís not that I enjoy them struggling.

Iíve never hurt any animal or person nor would I want to.

I just had a small encounter with a wasp in my apartment. It somehow got in. Very carefully I had opened up the screen when that wasp was in a position that it couldn't hurt me. But it wouldn't go out. At one time I took a broom and tried to sweep it out when I opened the screen. It still wouldn't leave. So I got a little crazy and tried to whack it with that broom, but it got away. So finally after about a half hour, I opened the screen again and it flew right out. And boy, didn't it fly out fast! And all of this happened at lunch. I would have felt bad if I had killed it.
