Quote# 131451

They don't have a say in the matter, but neither would the animals you propose to feed to your cat. Those animals which are almost certainly affected in a much more negative way by being raised for pet food and then killed than your cat would be by responsible trialing of the vegan food.

Not trying to be a jerk, but it bothers me quite a lot me that people use this argument so often and only consider the perspective of their pet rather than that of all affected individuals. It seems to me that rejecting a "possible and practicable" alternative which reduces exploitation and cruelty would be difficult to justify.

Another drooling moron who thinks that obligate carnivores can eat vegan diets. Somebody needs to sic The Cats of Ulthar on these assholes.

One of the classic radveeg PRATTs.

Some female cats and all male cats cannot last long without an outside source of taurine, which can only be acquired from animal products. Some female cats can get away with a diet that's low in taurine, as their extra X chromosome can have genes that allow them to self-produce taurine. However, even then, its not ideal and all cats can experience a lot of benefits from eating a taurine rich diet. Namely, more happiness and a longer life.

Nature IS "cruel", in its own way. It's not malicious; that's just nature being nature.

You're an idiot. Cats cannot be vegan.

I bet Vulpyne is one of those "wild animal suffering" people. They believe that killing all wildlife by destruction of habitat will prevent suffering.

If you don't want to meet the needs of your pet, don't own it. Cats are carnivores. They need meat. If you want a vegan pet get a rabbit.

Stop consuming water. If diets are truly so malleable that hundreds of thousands of years of biological evolution can be ignored on a passing whim then you should have no trouble proving it by shifting to a waterless diet.
