We all think that animals have at least some rights, though there are different opinions about exactly why they do so. Some say it is because of their sentience, some because of rationality, and some because of our sympathy.

Are they sentient? Are they rational? Certainly, some robots are pretty cute. So we ask, if animals have rights, should robots?
