you're driving me bananas here...I typed up this nice reply yesterday and when I hit submit "sorry thread closed" and now it's open again.....GIRLS!!!
I'm vegetarian not vegan; and I also keep plenty critters well fed inside & outside the house....I think the biggest thing IMO is keep it natural & fair.
Eg don't put your active Lab Dog in a 3x3ft pen and be surprised when its turning mean, they need to run.
If you can't afford a proper housing for whatever animal you have, or the needed activity or the proper food - Do not house them that simple!
I pers hate seen dogs penned up & chained up. I also hate seeing dolphins in them lil poos there when naturally they have the whole ocean, I also don't like it then people stock their lil tanks with big fish and then say "oh well I can't afford a larger one and will keep them there".
Now for the food itself; pers I simply don't eat it and hadn't in well over 20yrs now simply cause I'm a persona that pictures EVERYTHING ALL THE TIME may that be something you say or something on my plate...I picture it and when I look at meat I think of their families and wonder how they used to live and picture their faces etc etc and yea well I just can't eat it
