    Rattler's diverse taste in meat reminds me of a story - a guy was in court, charged with killing and eating an endangered spotted owl. The judge asked him how did he plead and the man said, "Guilty, your honor." The judge said he appreciated the man's honesty and, before sentencing him, he had a question, "What does spotted owl taste like?" The man answered, "Kind of like bald eagle."

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] Good one!

    I eat meat but I'm rather picky about it. I don't like handling raw meat and do it as little of that as possible. All meats must be well done! And a lot of meat I just can't or won't eat (veal). I love veggies. If I had to kill my own meat, I'd definitely be a vegetarian. I couldn't do that.

    Human beings are omnivores and so by nature eat meat and plants. Being vegetarian is cool but its going against what is natural for our species. Then again, human beings can think and reason and therefore do a lot of things that aren't "natural." Which is a usually a good thing.

    The pre-modern diet of some Inuit (eskimoes) was 98% meat and Jains are 100% vegetarian. So there's nothing unnatural about a diet at either extreme or somewhere in between.

    I think the all-meat diet is trickier unless you eat walrus livers and and other delicacies rich in vitamins otherwise lacking in a meat diet. I think Jains can have dairy products, but not eggs. The idea being that nothing is being killed. Of course having dairy means calves are being born and, unless they become veal in the short term or beef in the long term, a dairy-consuming society will soon be submerged in cattle.

    I'm mostly vegan (nothing can beat actual cheese on pizza) and I don't have a problem with my hobby- a lot of people think it's funny, but it doesn't "bug" me at all [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    urrrrrr..I cant stand those morons who try to feed their cats vegan diets..
    cats are CARNIVORES!! they eat meat!!
    if you dont like it, dont have a cat.

    people have every right to eat whatever they want...but they have NO right to force an unnatural diet on a pet.

    IMO, that is animal cruelty..those people should have their cats taken away from them and they should be arrested on animal cruelty charges..

    But a cat raised on a vegan diet must taste better and, if confined, is probably pretty tender.

    Well I guess what I meant was human beings are classified as omnivores...or at least that was what was being taught in school in my day. Individuals and groups of people can fall anywhere within that range either by choice or by circumstance. But our digestive systems are built to handle both meat and plant foods.
