    My cat eats plant-based 🙂 Evolution brand. I’ve heard (anecdotally and by blood tests) many people who say their cats/dogs are significantly healthier after going off meat! Some people say “but they are carnivores and need meat!” Well yes they are, but they need the *nutrients* found in meat, which are actually often synthetically replaced back into conventional pet foods because cooking destroys them (ie Taurine). Unless you are feeding your pet plant-based, you are 100% supporting animal agriculture, which vegans obviously don’t want to do. Therefore as a vegan who cares for all animals, my pets eat plant-based 🙂 Any questions, just ask!
