This goes entirely against the vegan motive of not using animals for experimental or other non ethical reasons

>teehee the vegan slop has all the minerals from meat artificially added so it's the same

It's not just the minerals it's their entire digestive system

Why not be a rabbit owner instead jfc

>edgiest kid in middle school
I thought vegans were all about consent. Did you ask which your cat prefers? Why force your cat into a diet it clearly does not want? It is the same as forcing a cow to give you milk or a chicken to give you an egg. You are forcing what you want on the animal and they cannot consent.

Cry more, smoothbrain.

It's only palatable to the cat because the malnourishment and diarrhea from eating only plant matter makes it hungrier

This vegan slop is relatively new, and it's more likely to be banned everywhere for animal abuse as more deaths and illnesses get brought to light, while factory farms will continue to flourish. I think there should be similar laws that protect pets extended to livestock, but as always the stupidity of vegans causes more Ls for their movement than Ws for animal welfare
>You wouldn't believe how many cats end up at the vet because their owner tried exclusively feeding them this slop.
How many? Citations,please.
only humans are allowed to be vegan.

What would a raccoon look like if you spent four hours a week shampooing, conditioning and oiling their fur? Would it still be dull and wiry, or would it become soft and supple?

Okay so I did a lot of thinking and saved a lot of money to buy a real human skull for my tarantula, yet before I buy the skull I'm having some concerns about it.

Could the skull harm my tarantula?
I want to keep the skull in excellent condition while it's in the terrarium, what methods should I do?

Now before you ask, I'll answer them for you

>Why do you want a real human skull?
Because I think it looks cool
>Why not just an animal skull?
It just doesn't work for this, it has to be a human skull
>You're not respecting the dead
That's why I'm asking how to keep the skull in great condition, the skull will have a much better time in a terrarium instead of a dusty shelf
>This is edgy cringe
That's your opinion and I'll respect that

>I think skulls of any kind in a tarantula enclosure is an edgy meme that I think is overdone. Tarantulas don't kill humans or large animals.

So you're saying that OP should get a deadly insect instead that could kill humans? That's a bad ass idea
Lol yup that'll work out, tell them the obviously real skull is fake to avoid suspicion
it takes a tarantula eight minutes to eat a 200 pound body

Iskn't it peculiar how much proof... err... how many pictures there are of a Fox using a computer?
Ok let's ignore the caption for a moment and just appreciate how she didn't have to tuck her head down to navigate around or brush into the armrest.

But she did.

It didn't represent any obstruction at all and she purposely treated it as such.

Like it was an opportunity to perform some graceful motion.

Growing up for a brief few years in Virginia, my family lived in a house near an artificial retaining pond where ducks and geese would land. When they would land, my sister and I would go out and throw crusty old bread to them. For a few years we were host of a particularly sociable mated pair of mallards who would visit year after year, even though the house was newly-built. My father once or twice lured them through the back door into the kitchen, where we briefly fed them crust before they had filled their feathery bellies and returned to the waterside to roost for the evening. We named them Waddles and Queenie.

Yes? A bear. That's one of the animals on the right.
To be fair there's only one caniform on the right. And two of them aren't even mammals.

They have a little bit more intelligence due to how they need to essentially plan their jumps and hunt, some people consider them some of the few arthropods that can actually perceive humans as alive and not giant moving objects.
Source: pretty sure I heard someone say that a while back and it sort of makes sense when I think about it.
Jumpers are able to identify the anatomy of novel prey from prolonged observation. We know this because they will always try to approach from the backside of their target, outside of their perceived field of view. They even freeze when prey turns around and they could be seen. This suggests some level of abstract thought and empathy. I'd like to believe that they can easily figure us out because we have binocular eyes much like their own.

They will eat sweet things like watermelon and some species eat starchy acacia nubs. Somebody needs to push the boundaries of their omnivory and find out all the things they’ll eat. Maybe feeding them sushi and nectar for generations could change them?
Imagine coming to that realization as a jumping spider, you are climbing around on this huge moving thing, and then you look up and see it has eyes, and that they are watching you.
