If people want vegan pets, get pets who are naturally vegan and don't mess with the health of animals who do not share the same morals as people.
exactly, i was at a forum once where i got involved in extended debated with people who thought it was fine to have a vegan cat or dog
i'm a vegetarian but i would never
make my cats or dog be vegetarians, they are carnivores and it is not my choice to make, besides, it's just not healthy, i am opposed to kangaroo hunting for example, i love kangaroos but now i have a dog i get roo tails from our shooter for her, sure, i don't like it, but they are great for her teeth and are very lean.
i also don't like rabbits being killed yet my cats eat it because they are cats.
if i wanted a vegetarian animal i'd buy a rabbit.
people who subject their pets to diets such as these make me angry, they shouldn't have carnivorus pets at all.
