That's interesting PlainOldMe, I was thinking about looking at this from the other side-- how would humans react. Rosborne already suggested he would be on the side of resisting a "superior" race however possible.
I had such an encounter a few weeks with an species that took up residence in my attic. This particular group was quite adamant that they not only had the right to set up their colony in the structure I consider my house, they also made it quite clear they would do what it took to keep us away. They were quite aggressive.
Now this particular species is armed with poisoned spears that can at least be quite painful to humans, and with enough number can be deadly. This might be the reason for their aggression.
Of course, this little disagreement was ended when I went to my local hardware store and paid $3.89 for a bottle of neurotoxin (quite nasty stuff with a 30 ft. range of spray). They didn't stand a chance.
I would like to think that humans wouldn't go this route.
For myself, I think the smart thing will be to look up with wide eyes, playfully bat at the stupid things they dangle in front of my face, curl up on their lap and learn to purr.
