Many people are choosing to become vegan and eat only plant-based foods. This is to help save animals and save natural resources like water that is used to create meat from cows, chickens, and pigs.

If you’re a vegan and don’t want to eat meat, should you push your ideologies on to your cat as well? While there are some vegan cat foods and supplements that you can give your cat to make sure it gets the nutrients it needs, cats are carnivores. That means they’re designed to eat meat and it’s the simplest type of diet for them.

So be vegan if you wish, but take care that your cat gets proper nutrition whether it comes from meat or nutrient supplements. Whatever the case, always make sure your cat is well-fed because that’s the way to keep your cat happy.
