    people really suggesting dogs and cats, or any mammal to begin with, when 80% of small invertebrate life is fricking nightmarish. I'd go with the ascidians. They're the closest relatives we have to fish and lampreys but instead of having a complex nervous system or shit like that, the larvae LOSES most of its nervous system just to become a fricking filter feeder. Also this necessarily means a shit ton of sea critters will live inside its motionless, brainless body (it keeps the heart for some reason, sothis sponge-like mass achtually has a fricking heart). Honorable mention to sea cucumbers because they too are barely motile and constantly raped by fish.

      Filter feeding is comfy though. I wish I could filter feed.

        problem is, you'd start us as a motile larvae that'd slowly lose its brain, so you'd go through the step of disappointment

      The problem with these things is they have so little brain activity they're incapable of suffering

    Nobody mentioned the Greenland Shark yet?

    It's blind, wandering the ocean floor alone for decades, eating detritus and fish carcasses. before running into a potential mate.

        I wonder if it basically just tries to frick everything it meets

        it probably has almost no brain function, mostly just the controls for the mechanical movements of swimming and ripping meat off bone

    >They aggressively seek out mates, while males are more selective. During mating, the female mounts the male and penetrates his small genital opening from behind.
    >Her gynosome swells and tiny barbs on the organ lock the individuals tightly together; when a researcher tried to separate mating individuals the male was torn in two, leaving his reproductive organs attached to the female. During mating, the female uses her gynosome to extract sperm and nutrient-filled seminal fluid from the male.

    Those things that are born inside a hive and the males are tiny and all live until they mate and then immediately die all inside the hive. They never see outside. I can’t remember if it was a bug or what.

    Greenland Sharks.
    Deep darkness, crushing pressure and guaranteed eye parasites. If you don't have to endure this for several centuries, you get hauled out by Eskimos looking to turn you into one of the most foul dishes ever prepared.

    Cats and dogs that are the pets of humans. They get to live "comfortably" with almost no freedom or good food for their entire life with humans who do not care about them.

      They literally evolved for this and enjoy it to an excessive degree. Don’t project your angst onto domesticated animals because you still have the antisocial ADHD spirit of a caveman

        There's nothing wrong with having pets if you take care of them properly. Most people just shut their pets inside all day, only being let outside a handful of hours a day. Most people do not give their pet proper enrichment through activity. Most people do not give their pet proper affection. Most people do not spend time with their pets (and if they do, it's not much.) Most people do not groom their pets properly. Most people see their pets as a cute object, a "thing" that they keep around for their selfish need of companionship, which they force upon this animal without care of the animal.

          Again, they literally evolved for this. Many dogs need absolutely nothing, the brain tissue in a golden retriever is rather absent. Likewise for persians and ragdolls. They aren’t all huskies, mals, savannah cats, and half-bobcat ratters.

            Dogs and cats (and other pets) did not involve to stay indoors 80% of the day, eat shitty kibble/wet food, be neutered and not interact with another one of their species for their entire life.
            If you think otherwise you are moronic and I won't waste any more time on you.

                Most people have multiple kots and dogs but especially kots

                They still didn't evolve to exist indoors all day, or most of the day, or any of the other points I made.

                This is exactly what I mean. People have absolutely zero empathy for their pets and less than zero understanding of their own actions. How would you like to be locked in an apartment or house for the rest of your life? Are you genuine this stupid?

    Urban foxes. Read Being a Beast, a very informal "phenomenological" study of a few different animals, to see how far we can put ourselves in their shoes. The dude spent a summer playing a mole, naked in a hole he had dug next to a river in England. By the time he was done he thought being in the hole was comfy as frick and his wife had to force him and the kids to leave.
    However he could barely stand a few hours at a time "playing" urban foxes. With their noise sensitivity, its like living your entire life in a trench during an artillery barrage.

        from what I understand inbreeding is not that big of a deal in some insect species and with fig wasps in particular one fig may carry multiple mother wasps.
        https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/15140104/

        The coevolution of figs and wasps goes back for 70 or even 90 million years and is honestly a super interesting topic
