Regarding the ham soup--some people are just shitty at wording. It's obviously not a meat-free lifestyle. It's a reduced-meat lifestyle, and I would be encouraging even though it's gross that they added the ham, obviously. You can always politely suggest a ham alternative. I have many friends who are aware that animal products are not very ethical/healthy/environmentally friendly to consume, so they reduce a bit, and it's a step.

My sister had a cat named Meow. Meow took a liking to a fluffy white Persian plush kitty that looked like him. This became his girlfriend. Maybe get your cat a kitty equivalent to a blow up doll!

I've never heard of a cat humping things though. I'm so intrigued. They seem far too dignified for humping.

This is the vegan pet peeves thread. I thought it was okay to express my peeve here. I didn't and wouldn't criticize her.


i say rant away. this is totally the appropriate place for that and i agree it's totally annoying. i mean dont call yourself a vegetarian if you're eating ham soup ;-)

i also agree that it's not the best tactic to throw stuff like that in peoples' faces when they are trying but i didnt get the impression you did that.

i think when people start saying chicken stock is ok for vegetarians to eat (that's the implication of things like eating stock or a "little ham flavor") it makes it hard for those of us who dont eat the stock cause then we have to have those super annoying conversations like "NO i dont eat chicken/beef stock!!! it's still meat!!!!"

I bet all cats do it in secret, when they think no one is looking.

ETA: whatever you do, do not google image search "cats humping"

A few companies I dig for vegan stuff has been on the evil GMO support list. The main one being Light Life, I want to avoid them but there goes a lot of my meals and future projects. I try to avoid things like Silk - I will only get it in my coffee if that is my only option at a coffee house...What does a ethical vegan do?

I don't know what the evil GMO support list is but Lightlife says they don't use GMO ingredients in their products. They are owned by ConAgra though so I can imagine people have issues with that.

I believe it is a Con-Agra thing...They did not want to see labeling of GMO products being passed.

Ahh ok, I've already mentioned (possibly in this thread) that based on the bill that was being put up, I wouldn't blame anyone who didn't want to see it passed. I hope California (or even the US in general), comes up with a GMO labeling bill that makes sense.

We can hear the feral cats outside mating, and our black cat Carlito, who was fixed later in life, starts to vigorously hump anything in sight. Maybe your cat needs a soundtrack? Give him a pillow and start the music going. Meowchickameow meow!

Yeah, you can be an ethical vegan that supports companies that voted to not have that bill passed, because...well I wouldn't have voted yes on it.

Being pedantic instead of encouraging them is not really going to convince anyone to go vegan. We know it's not meat free but it's a big step in the right direction.


Speaking of not being encouraging or helpful...this type of comment is not particularly welcoming to new users.

We had a blanket that my Gershwin made his bride...over and over again. I grabbed it with tongs and threw it in the garbage eventually.

when my parents visited over christmas, they forgot their chihuahua's grungy sex baby in my apartment, and i still haven't mailed it back. every couple of weeks my mom calls to remind me that the dog starts keening for his lover about half an hour before bedtime.

I just avoid buying from those companies as much as possible. it's hard because some of them are always on sale, but at least the alternatives taste better. Even if the California law was flawed, I don't want to give a company who doesn't want to label their gmo's my money.
If only we could be as smart as Europe and ban GMO's already. Because you know creating superweeds and polluting everything with more and more toxic pesticides is obviously a good idea, among all the other problems GMO's bring to the environment and biodiversity issues.
I tend to not consider GMO's vegan because some of the altered DNA could be from animals. I can't fault people for not buying organic or non gmo all the time. It costs more and it's more work and I'm not perfect at it myself.

May I recommend Sharky Shark the pillow pet? He's my cat's favorite and he leaves the blankets alone since we got him.

Molly adores my beanie baby gorilla. He is on a shelf now, but when he used to be on the desk. Ear her playground, she would randomly go snuggle up to him. Bird does like her snuggles. I've never seen her do any sort of mating type behavior. She could be too young still, but girl conures are not sex fiends the way some birds are (one reason I got a conure--do not want to repeat the agony of egg binding we went through with our lovely lady tiel)

She is afraid of almost all other beanie babies, including the sweet looking pink and white cockatoo, but she likes the more menacing mountain gorilla. Go figure.
