As far as I am concerned, there is no difference between the plight of people’s neglected “pet” or the plight of the farm animals that we as a society have decided to use as food. It is only our society and industry that has decided that we should use for food the animals that we do. There are some cultures that eat cats and dogs, there are others where the cow is a sacred animal, and our “civilised” western society has decided to use cattle, pigs, chickens, etc. So which is wrong? Not knowing the answer, I made the decision that all living beings deserve our respect, and as such, shouldn’t be eaten when there are heaps of alternatives available.
Now I have decided to use this wonderful medium called the internet to post thoughts and feelings on all sort of things.
Some people may think that I am ranting and have extremist views. Though the same thing can be said for just about everyone out there.
