Vegan Pets, a PSA.
Listen, I don’t give a fuck who this offends.
If you’re offended by me telling the truth about obligate carnivores, good; cry me a fucking river of tears and drown in it.
By making your dog, cat, fox, ferret, snake or any carnivorous fucking animal vegan, you are going to kill it in the end, guarantee.
Humans can be vegan without much trouble, that is because humans are omnivorous, your tabby is not. She’s a carnviore, her claws and teeth are equipped to tear shit apart.
Calm down keyboard warrior, rest your fingers for just a moment. I have nothing against the concept and practice of veganism, hell- my girlfriend is transitioning vegan from pescatarian, and I’ve been meaning to learn how to cook vegan/vegetarian, just for her if we do end up having a future together.
But obligate carnivores are not omnivores (duh.) and you forcing your political agendas on evolution is going to backfire.
Most carnivores (Take for instance, your cat, ferret, dog) have short digestive tracks and intestines, this is to quickly dispense of rotting meat much faster, so that it does not promote bacterial growth. Herbivores have longer, bigger GI tracts to allow for more nutrient-absorption from digested-plant matter.
And omnivores, such as ourselves, are cozy right in the middle.
You cannot change this, this is what is inside your animal, this is it’s body, this is what it’s millions of years of evolution lead up to: a carnviore.
Not done here etheir! Hey, did you know that animals forced onto vegan diets lose hair, weight and eventually eye-sight from taurine deficiency?
Really! Wow, who would’ve known trying to mess with the course nature wouldn’t work out eh?
Ever here of Jumanji? The sweet little fennec fox’ who is losing all of his fur, developing skin conditions and going blind. Because his owners believes that “uwu all animals r equal!”.
Her animal is malnourished and wasting away infront of her, yet she turns a blind eye in lieu of her “heroic animal activism”, which is ironically doing quite the opposite.
Want a “vegan” animal? Get a rabbit. Don’t fuck with biology.
Reblogging as a vegetarian who still gives my ferret raw meat. My cats also get, chicken, tuna and raw hamburger.
I make the choice not to eat meat BECAUSE I’m human. . My animals don’t get that choice.
