Well, Rita, as we already have the carnivores, I see no reason to not feed them what keeps them healthy.
On my part, we mostly feed what normally would have been thrown away, so nothing goes to waist and as said, Ralph and I do not eat meat ourselves.
All the carnivores that live with me just needed a home as no one else wanted them. What was I supposed to do? say, "sorry, you're a meat eater, go some place and die?"
I love sharing my live with cats and dogs by the way. They teach me lots, just as horses do and I connect much more easy with cats, dogs and horses then I do with humans. They are my family.
And I suspect there will always be cats and dogs on our doorstep wanting to live with us.
I do think, once we move to a more natural location, any new cats and dogs that arrive I might try to convince to hunt for their own. I am not sure yet.
But this is not walhalla. Animals eat animals. And animals eat plants who also are living beings with their own senses.
We must just make sure that we do only what is neccessary to survive and reduce suffering where we can. But there is no point in wishing we could all start living from air.
Well, that's the way I see it, anyway.
And I think horses, or at least Owen, think the same.
