Technically, humans are animals. But you have traits that distinguish you from animals, such as language and culture. It's the same with robots. They're not machines, they're people.
Sheesh. Next you'll be telling me you'll call the cops if I kick my Mr. Coffee.
Oh, no. We have a humane society for that.
