That's just sad. A sight like that just encourages people to stupidly torture their poor pets to death.
I read through the vegan message board and a few came to their scenes at least but most of it was scary and sad. There was even someone saying that all the sick/dying cats wasn't proof it was bad since cats get sick all the time naturally. Humans with careful monitoring of their diet can choose the vegan life but carnivorous animals aren't built to tolerate that life at all. I would no more feed a ferret a carrot than I would give a bunny a steak to munch on.
I learned how importance meat is to dogs when growing up, I had a special needs dog that on top of everything else had a digestive disorder. Our vet clearly pointed out to us the importance of MEAT in a CARNIVORES diet. Since our dog had a 0% tolerance for all the fillers found in dog food. With careful monitoring of it's diet our dog lived to be 12 which was quite astounding to our vet since the longest a dog with her problem he had ever known had lived before was 6.
Ever since then I've done my best to keep all pets on a natural diet and all the people in my family know to always at least buy high grade pet food that's predominantly meat based for their dogs and cats.
