That's empathy, compassion...and not looking away.

Very good post, Beringia.

How do we make our food choices? Would you eat your dog...or cat? They slaughter them for food in Asia.

How do you determine which animal deserves slaughtering?

I'm failing my own test - hubby has a strong negative influence & he wants occasional red meat. And I have meat eating critters to fed. (This last week vets told me my big Lab's blood wk revealed she's low on protein!)

So, this is difficult, but I'm at least trying & choosing to say NO to many traditional animals, like lambs, veal, etc. Good thing I love shrimp - yes they have senses but are very low on the cognitive pyramid.

More self-congratulatory: I scooped up a big spider today & put him out instead of crushing him.

I try, I truly do. I need some help in the menu dept.
