    Australia culling feral cats

    Hahahahahahahahahaaa that is very funny .. "Red necks" don't care about the wilderness or wildlife ! They are the ones doing the logging and clear-felling ! You obviously have no idea - and we don't really call them "red-necks " here - we call them yobs or bogans .. You are very funny ...

    Australia culling feral cats

    Oh Nekodaiden - you really do not know what you are talking about .. I do not exaggerate , and neither do the others who document the cats they trap .. You do not know me , so please do not make assumptions about my character .. There are no "wild conclusions" being drawn .. You are trying to...

    Australia culling feral cats

    Hi Catalin , the biggest issue is probably habitat clearance , followed by introduced species - cats , foxes , cane toads , rabbits , horses , honey bees , European wasps , etc.. etc ... and that includes exotic plants , some of which have invaded wilderness areas and are squeezing out the...

    Veganism is Deontological

    Oh my goodness , there are a lot of words and mental concepts in this thread . I like to keep it really simple .. I follow my heart , which knows what my Inner truth is .. I am guided by my deep feelings , which are felt in my core .. I feel there is often a danger in over-thinking things .. I...

    I eat figs... am I not vegan?

    Where l grew up , in Melbourne , Victoria , Australia , we had a big fig tree in the backyard , and as kids we gorged on them when they were ripe .. Even as a young child l was very sensitive about accidentally hurting /killing things ( would have been vegan at 5 if l knew what that was) and so...

    I eat figs... am I not vegan?

    (Hey SapphireLightning , absolutely love your signature ..!) Whenever l hear an absurd comment like this from a non-vegan , l just say something like this - " Really ? Is that so? " I am sure most of us inhale or accidentally swallow tiny insects , either in the air ,or on, or in fruit or...

    Australia culling feral cats

    No - l did not say , or mean , that cats are a "mistake" - l was just referring to them being "culled" - don't like the expression , because it sometimes covers up nasty means of killing - like poison ... I call all beings dying , "going Home" - it's just an expression l use to mean leaving the...

    Australia culling feral cats

    oh dear you have completely misunderstood me - "Home " , with a capital H , means back to where we all come from - The Absolute Realm - or God , as some would call it .. We re all souls in bodies here , including animals .. And l never said the cats were "destroying all the wildlife " - so if...

    Australia culling feral cats

    I have lived with this issue first hand - l live rurally , and have done in two Aussie states for nearly 30 years .. We have watched wallabies , bandicoots , potoroos , and possums all succumb to toxoplasmosis , as well as being hunted by the feral ( and domestic) cats .. Toxoplasmosis is...

    Vegans Going Crazy Over Oil

    As for me , l am a vegan for ethical reasons , so the health / oil debate can rage on around me , and l have no attachment to the "rightness " or "wrongness" of it .. I use a bit of olive oil in roasting vegies , and a small amount for stir-fry and similar .. I still , however , have a...

    Struggling to be accepting of non-vegan friends and family

    If you want peace of mind , you have to let go of the idea that you can change your loved ones .. ( unless they seek that) If you want peace of mind , you have to let go of the idea that it is your job to change or influence them .. It is your job to work on your own growth and be the best...

    Vegan pet foods

    Cats are true carnivores , and they will suffer nutritionally if they don't have this diet that they are built for .. It is not right to impose your choices on an animal that is under your care . Our duty to animals is to look after them as nature intended , as much as possible . Dogs are...

    Is empathy/compassion a finite resource?

    When one knows oneself as a spiritual being using a body in this world , then one never runs out of empathy or compassion . When one awakens to one's true identity , one knows that we are all the One .. The trick is , to Be Love .. Being that , is to always feel yourself in the "other" -...

    A little disappointed in cholesterol test results

    Yes , but it took a few months . It was a big lesson for me . I have since taken good care of this body nutritionally .. Health is a big part of quality of life . It's not the whole deal , but it certainly helps ! Blessings to you ..
