Default What is nutritional yeast

Is it vegan? Is it vegetarian?
I heard that it contains taurine, so possible it can be given to vegan
cats as a supplement, don't you think?

TIA,
Jupiter

Yes, some brands are vegan. Here's some information

http://www.bulkfoods.com/nutritional_yeast.htm

You need to be very, very careful if you try and feed your cat a vegan
diet. Don't just feed it nutritional yeast because 'you heard it
contains taurine.' That would be very irresponsible and can lead to
serious health problems for your cat. Learn more he

Very sound advice.

I look at it this way - if you can't stand to feel your pets meat, don't
own carnivors. There's plenty of herbivore pets out there whose lives
won't be endangered by you imposing your values on them.

Most likely. That's why we make sure ours are well fed before they're
allowed to leave the house.

well-fed has nothing to do with it. domesticated cats still have the
hunter/killer instinct in them and will still go after birds and other
little things no matter what if given the chance.

We've found with our cats that they're quite content to chase bugs so long
as they're well fed. On the (rare) occasions that we've let them out
without feeding them, they usually go after something... bigger.

So long as they're not hungry, and we play games with them that utilise
their more native instincts, they don't hunt. Of course bells (and a
beeping collar for the more capable of the 2) don't go astray.

Of course your experiences may be different.

Yup. Get a rabbit instead and then you can feed it "Lettuce with a Gladsome
Mind."

(That's the veg/Vegan hymn! ))

yeah, it's different for each pet. my pekingese (RIP) always loved bringing
dead birds in the house. :-)

heh, gotta share this though. a friend of mine sent me this recently. I
got one hell of a laugh out of it, especially over how true it is. :-)
