Hierarchy of care

We all have a different hierarchy of care. Some have specific people or animals in mind: Partner first, then kids. Or the other way around.

Others have the hierarchy in categories: People, then animals.

One I know have this hierarchy:

Own dogs
Other dogs
Animals they love
Animals they do not like
Plants
... people.

That hierarchy became stark and revealing when I wanted to know "And where are you?"
