      to starve? Sorry, not workable on many levels. I do animal rescue and try to make choices that minimize suffering. Cats add immeasurably to my quality of life. If you hate cats maybe this isn't the diary for you.

        But the animal suffering that goes into pet food production cannot and should not be swept under the rug. Dontcha think?

        •  Sure, but this is a weird time (2+ / 0-)

          to bring it up. There are a lot of problems with the pet food industry, and if I thought I could commit over the long haul I'd probably make it from scratch. I buy top quality, human grade that doesn't use ingredients from China.
          A diary on the subject would be great. It just seemed like you kind of threw cold water on this one with that comment. But I'm sure we'd all like to spare animals suffering whenever possible.

        •  I have the same worries about feeding my cats. (0+ / 0-)

          In vitro meat is a possible eventual solution to the problem. I say eventual because at present it would be prohibitively expensive except for those who have sufficient income that they could afford it. And of course it is not available commericially at the moment but it has been claimed for several years that it is on the immediate horizon.
