I think that this person blocked me right after reblogging this… I’m not a vegan or a vegetarian and I am certainly not someone who tries to force that on their pets at all. If you were to investigate many reliable sources like the ASPCA you would find that it is important that almost all of their intake is from meat but that small amounts of grasses and certain other cooked & unseasoned vegetables can be helpful for their digestion. Cats are carnivores but that doesn’t mean that they never consume any plant matter. In the wild they consume grasses to help with hair balls and they consume the vegetation from the stomachs of their prey. Pumpkin is frequently recommended by vets for feline constipation, especially in cats who are more reluctant to drink enough water. Cats may even crave small amounts of certain vegetables if they have an upset stomach and are trying to pass a hairball. It’s a common problem for cats because they are desert creatures and don’t have a great thirst drive. My cat has three full water dishes and a continuously running fountain but it can still be a problem for some felines. While I absolutely agree that their calories should be coming from meats it is unwise to make blanket statements like that when you don’t really know what you’re talking about and haven’t done your research. Folks should make sure to investigate before and ask their vet about anything that they are going to feed their pets.
Is that so hard to understand?
