I am genuinely curious about the position of PETA advocates and hard-line vegetarians towards the cat/dog food industry. Is there some alternative 'more ethical' way of feeding your pets than by indiscriminately purchasing popular animal foods. I read in wiki article on cat food that vegan cat food can be harmful to their health. I have often said that any emotional attachment we develop towards one organism is always at the expense of another. How do vegans incorporate the proper care of pets into their ethical scheme?
