“Pets” or “Food”?

Most people look at pets in a different way that they look at the animals raised for food. And this disconnect is the reason why the animal agriculture industry is able to get away with the egregious abuse to farmed animals. So, by maybe seeing “pets” in factory farmed conditions people might be able to see the cruelty involved in this industry.

The animals called “food” and those called “pets” suffer alike. This alone should prompt us to also include them in our sphere of compassion, thus emulating God’s love for all Creation.
