    Much as I love cats and vegan food this may be a bit too much for me.

    I love my cat, I enjoy looking at funny cat videos online. Cat merchandise is where I draw the line.

    The vegans owning a cat thing has me confused a little!

    Is it possible to turn a cat vegan?
  10. Puddy_Tat

    Puddy_Tat meh

    in theory yes and there are vegetarian / vegan cat foods available (although kitty might go and catch the occasional non veggie snack) although much independent opinion is it's not a good idea.

    Puddy_Tat meh

    it's near beckenham hill station - thameslink trains from blackfriars / elephant - or orange line from wandsworth road to denmark hill and change there (all subject to weekend engineering work and so on)

    or bus 54 from lewisham

    or not that far from bus 136 - bus 36 to somewhere between peckham and new cross then 136 (don't forget to wave to the catford cat when you go past)

    then 54 down the road if you feel like it (not sure at what point daily fare capping on buses kicks in now) my be the simplest - i'm not getting much sense out of the TFL journey planner at the moment

    Puddy_Tat meh

    Traveline is offering more options than TFL journey planner - quickest (which I hadn't thought of) seems to be underground to brixton, SE Railway to Beckenham Junction then walk or bus 54 up the road from there

    Wookey Muppet is not a slur

    It's certainly immoral. Obligate carnivores are designed to eat meat, preferably fluffy meeces or flappy tweetbirds, licking the blood from their flesh-ripping incisors as they grin maniacally at their own feline brutishness.

    Vegans owning cats and feeding them meat from the industrialised meat industry is highly questionable though, imo.

    Well yeah! If you had a mouser, and it worked for a living protecting your wheat stores that you keep in the barn!

    Calamity1971 If Mr Peanut says It's okay, then it is.

    All valid questions. I think maybe a new thread (if it hasn't been done already) for this discussion and leave the catfest one to be all things cool about cats?
    Can someone get me a signed/paw print of bob. ;)

    Totally right, soz. On with cats and vegan food.

    I would go to this, as I do love cats and I am a vegan. Can't stand festivals or people though.

    If the cat is healthy, what should be the 'crime'?

    fucthest8 What the zarking fardwark was that?

    Fucking with a sentient animal's nature without its permission.

    If that isn't a crime, it should be

    Would the cat owners also be liable for the cat crapping in someone's garden or killing baby birds?
  27. Yossarian

    Yossarian free shrugs

    It's like having a pet rabbit and feeding it nothing but raw meat - it might be able to survive but it probably wouldn't be a happy bunny, people would rightly ask "Are you sure that a rabbit is the right pet for you?" among other things.

    If you've got a cat you've already 'fucking with a sentient animal's nature without its permission.' Besides, if a cat doesn't like it, they're free to wander off to a neighbour and get the attention/food they want elsewhere. As they often do.
