If a human is braindead, then there is no suffering. Suffering
is the product of the brain -- it is the recognition that pain is
occuring. If a person doesn't have a functioning brain, there
is no recognition and, thus no suffering.
If you are under anesthesia and someone opens up your
chest, are you suffering? No, of course not, because the pain
is not making it to your brain. Now, if you had no brain to go
to, you wouldn't even need anesthesia.
Allowing your cat to starve would be to cause suffering.
P.S., I am only addressing the issue of suffering because that
seems to be your objection. Obviously, whether something does
or does not suffer is not sufficient for considering whether or not
an action is cruel.
