I often say I love my cat. I love animals. However when I have a chicken pizza, sausages at breakfast, an egg, milk to my cereal and I get ready to have my first bite I can hear screams of those helpless animals I was about to eat. Who am I then? Another animal walking on 2 legs and looks a little more sophisticated and branded as Humans? I guess our type is the most dangerous animal on planet.
And when I hear those screams of those animals being hurt and slaughtered…I hear my inner self asking me… Do you really love animals?!
And I die inside and the food which seemed soo delicious a minute ago turns into poison.
Every second an animal is slaughtered because we want them on our plate! Do we really love them? Because I am sure love doesnt mean killing them and eating them or taking that cool Instagram picture or posting to Facebook about how delicious your meal was. Behind that meal was a cry of an animal who didnt do anything. The milk we drink…they are sucked out of the udders of the cow. Painfully. That cow has milk to feed her children not for us. The calf is made to suck the milk from the udder and as soon as he does it..the workers take the calf away from his mother and her mother gets the milked sucked out of her. She screams! That cow is someone’s mother.
We dont care because we receive milk in shiny carton with fancy stuff drawn on it. But where does it come from? How does it come? That carton has a story behind it.
I see people writing about their pets, stray dogs and cats. I understand you love them. I do too. I call myself a mother to my cat. But a chicken, a cow, a pig, a lamb, etc is also an animal. I dont see many people posting about them. Why?
Because we love eating them! They satisfy our needs.
THEN WHO IS THE REAL ANIMAL HERE?
I am a non-vegetarian and I want to turn into a Vegan now. And the day I can is the day when I’ll proudly say I love animals because right now…there will always be that crying voice in my ears…Do I love them?
I know a lot of the people who would be reading this might not like it because you dont see the way I see and that is absolutely okay. I respect everybody’s choices. This was something I really wanted to share.
Take care. x
