Cats and Dogs absolutely have emotions, a degree of consciousness, and sense of identity, survival requires it, fight of flight and so on. But they do not have enough means to communicate it.

Elephants and other animals get involved in the complex factor (MADHAM) in their love making and mating and this is the outcome of their ego and Jealousy.

Cats and dogs do not allow outsiders (again cats and dogs respectively) and have strong complex against unknown animals and quarrel with them.

Like Pearl stated above, most animals like dogs. Cats etc., get agitated if you feed a section or a particular animal. Hence it is called as DOG FIGHT

My understanding of the concept of "ego" as applied to animals is that their "animal ego" is really a species-survival mechanism for coping with their physical, competitive real world.

When they are adoring pets, they express Big Love which is everywhere, regardless of the level of consciousness of individuals of any species.

The difference from us is that we can calculate. we are willing to suffer now for future gain. That is our only calculation. We will always weigh the options and choose the one which will give us thew most pleasure (even in the long run). For example, one would go to collage and work hard for a few years in order to get a degree. The other difference between the human ego and the animal ego is that the animals already live in harmony. Their nature is not destructive, and they don't take advantage of other animals. They only live by their basic nature. (They prey only because it's their nature, and they don't do it to harm other animals). That is not true for humans.
