Cats are obligate carnivores just sayin'

I concur with your logic

But it could be a title for a book, a movie, etc.

Obligate carnivory only describes natural dietary patterns in feral settings. It is not an absolute decree regarding what a given animal can or cannot eat. The only two essential nutrients for felines that are missing from a plant-based diet are taurine and arachidonic acid, both of which are routinely supplemented in cat food as synthetic vitamins. There is literally no reason why a cat cannot be vegan now. All the cat needs is nutritionally complete cat food, vegan or otherwise.

Well it just feels wrong if ya ask me! :)

wouldn't a vegetarian cat die though


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KSoCiVQL

Not if their diet is nutritionally complete. All a vegetarian cat needs is for taurine and arachidonic acid to be added to their food, as is already routinely done to all cat food, in order for it to be nutritionally complete.

My cat was eating carbs, and veggies even, and got diabetes, so a smart pet owner will not let their cats be anything more than what they were meant to be...carnivores!
