On one fine day, the girlfriend sat him down and said that there was no future until the author his darling fuzzy companion. Her explanation was—it violates the standards of veganism.
Read the full story below and let us know what do you think about this.
In an update post the author later posted on r/relationship_advice, he clarified that his girlfriend’s opinions on homegrown felines are not representative of the vegan community. “I do think that, sometimes, new vegans can be a little overzealous. In reality, most of us are just doing the best that we can to not hurt animals!”
For those who’re pondering, the author has additionally said that they separated (broke up), “clearly.” “I would never, ever give up my cat Mittens,” he said and added that “Many users said that this situation was about control, not veganism, and looking back, I do see a pattern of control on my girlfriend’s part.”
He also shared the picture of his cat on Imgur
His post attracted so many comments:
One said: She suggested to give it away ? It makes no sense whatsoever… Will it consume less meat with another owner ? Of course not. It’s like boasting about your lack of garbage because you dump it all in your neighbor’s yard.
A second one added: What this reminds me of, is parents so committed to their religion, they will disown their own children for not conforming, even though they claim to love them. Unfortunately some vegans can find their ideology so compelling they too would choose it before anything else, and in this case she seems to have never even considered the fact she’s demanding op give up a cat he loves. Whilst we’re on the subject OP, cats are obligate carnivores and should never be fed a vegan diet, regardless of health status. Here in the U.K. doing so would earn you a fine of up to £1000 – it’s considered animal cruelty.
A third one said: As a fellow vegan, no, this isn’t even cool. If she truly cared about animals she wouldn’t ask you to re-home your cat! It has a loving home! Her way of thinking is a** backwards. If someone told me I am not a real vegan because I have a dog I would laugh my a** off and tell them they can have their stupid label, the dog stays, he’s family. Just like I’m sure your cat is your family.
