Shift Towards Vegan Cat Diet? — 3 Comments

  1. While supermarket pet food is unhealthy to say the least, so is vegan or vegetarian, especially for cats. Both are unhealthy for different reasons. Veterinarians aren’t the last word on diet, but even the least knowledgeable vet knows that cats need animal protein. If it’s just a numbers exam, there are 7.3 billion people on the planet and far fewer domestic cats, plus they don’t eat as much (need as many calories) per capita. I don’t care if people want to be vegan and it’s probably okay for them and better for the planet, but not for cats. I’d say leave them out of anyone’s save the planet agenda. In fact, allowing them to live by their natural way is the main idea of that philosophy. A sustain able future should agree with nature.

    • There is going to be a bigger discussion about this over the coming months and years as humans also come under pressure to change their diet. Cows and methane and climate change etc.. are forces for change. The environment is becoming a major issue is people’s lives and cats have a role to play in minimising environmental impacts.

      As you know I think it is possible to formulate a vegan cat diet. It is all about chemistry and nutrients.
