Yesterday’s “FAQ of the Day” in About.com’s “Cats” section is “Should I try a Vegan Diet for my Cats?” As an answer, the blogger refers to HostBarb’s “superb reply”:

Humans, whose need for high-quality protein is far less than those of cats, have a difficult time remaining optimally nourished on a solely vegetable-derived diet, and must pay particular care with food types, quantities and combinations, as well as take a variety of supplements, to avoid becoming malnourished or suffering from various deficiencies…I find it highly unlikely that any vegan diet could supply all the nutrients a cat needs to thrive.

Where do they find these people? Had either author done a little thing we like to call “research” she would have discovered that cats (and people) can thrive on a vegan diet. I think About.com might be more aptly named ShotintheDark.com.

More info on vegan diets for cats can be found at vegancats.com.
