YOUR CAT IS NOT VEGAN
NO CATS ARE VEGAN
VEGAN DIETS KILL CATS
@InkyPlaytime I had a super ethical-vegan GF who used to randomly send me videos of how horrifying slaughterhouses are, and even she fed her cats meat, though it made her feel bad. She sometimes maintained a healthy vegan diet for her dogs, but usually gave them meat too because it was far less of a hassle.
@Robby slaughter houses ARE horrible. And cats need meat. Most vegans with cats and dogs I know don’t hesitate providing meat to keep their pet healthy and alive, but there are too many people out there who think cats can handle a human diet or are just like us, and will openly boast about their vegan cat and post pictures of their poor malnourished animals as if it’s an achievement and not abuse, so very awful. So that’s why I posted. It makes me upset.

Agree 100%. Our fat one has realised we always check if he has anything in his mouth before we let him in, because he likes to strew the carpets with rat gore. So now he swallows the whole thing then throws it up once he's inside. This is normal for cats. Diet of veggies is not normal for cats.
@InkyPlaytime I think this is the consensus in most vegan circles but man are there some strange people out there I've seen. I'm a vegan who feeds my cats meat, and I feel like the best thing someone can do if they're a vegan who doesn't want to contribute to that is just not own meat-eating pets. I'm not comfortable feeding an animal mice or insects so I'm not gonna go out and buy a snake or something, if you don't want to feed a cat meat don't get one.

Also if you don't want your pet to eat meat don't buy a pet that will massacre everything in the garden. Dragonflies, spiders, voles, mice, rats, all manner of songbirds, squirrels, unidentifiable chunks of bone and gut, you name it, they've brought it into the house. Shrews, I forgot shrews. And frogs. I'm probably blocking a lot of stuff. If you're vegan and don't want a meat-eating pet, no, not cats.
