As anyone who has read any of my posts here will no doubt be aware...I am a self confessed Animal lover.
I keep them as pets, I fight for their welfare, I spend hours watching videos about them..I read as much as I can about them...I stick up for the less 'popular ones, like Reptiles and Amphibians...and yes..I occasionally eat them, or fish for them too..
But, when I have to argue against some of the blinkered, self righteous weirdo's that PETA seems to attract, I can hardly contain myself!
The latest lunacy I'm fighting against, is a Vegan diet for Cats and Dogs!...WTF are these people on?
If I gave my two Dogs a bowl of vegatables to eat...they would sh*t in my shoes!
It's PETA who should be prosecuted for Abuse!
I used to be big into animal welfare when I was a teenager and it consumed my time and my conscience - I dont actively get involved nowadays, would wreck my head if I dwelled on it to the extent I used to. I know of PETA's campaigns from years ago, not so familiar with their current ones but they are an odd organisation who have some strange ideas!
My dogs get fed a raw diet so id' better watch my back! Even when I was a veggie for 17 years, i'd never dream of turning my dogs veggie.
Yes Leanne, I think the original idea of PETA was based on a good format....We all want to help animals who are abused and treated badly...but there are many welfare organisations who do that really well....seems like the PETA ranks these days, are filled with fundamentalist nut-jobs.
(they of course don't want us to have Dogs as pets too)
I didn't think cats could have a vegetarian diet as it wouldn't meet their nutritional requirements.
They can't...but that's not stopping some of them doing so...I posted a link to a scientific paper on their facebook page..and it was promptly deleted
