Soul Mates

Vegan companions for vegan people

Not everybody wants the commitment of a dog or a cat but wants that warm fuzzy feeling you get from loving another sentient being. As veganism increases, it is natural that more and more people are exploring meat-free foods for their companions. Therefore, we have an overview of animals which can survive and thrive on a vegan diet so that no animals have to suffer in order to feed your own beloved companion animals.

About Vegan Life

Welcome to our penultimate issue of 2017. November is a wonderful month and for someone who loves layers, it truly is the season to be jolly (too early to mention Christmas?). Multi-coloured leaves fall from the trees to rest on muddy, waterlogged fields and the winter wardrobe starts to emerge in all of its glory. As such, we have put together a vista of vegan-friendly clothes, shoes and accessorises perfect for the cruelty-free fashionista or as early Christmas presents (last reference, I promise). November this year is going to be particularly special for me as I’m getting married. I am relinquishing my last name, which I am sad to see go despite years of fish-related jokes, but you will have to wait for the December issue to see what it will change to! Preparing for the wedding has not been too stressful, as the ceremony is going to be very small, but whilst searching for rings I came across an issue I had not considered before. In this issue we explore the ethics of diamond mining including the damage to our increasingly fragile environments, the impact on animals whose habitats are destroyed by diamond mines and the dictatorship which profits from the activity. We have also heard some great news which we think you will be excited about. Three important places have been given Special Protection Area status which means that over 200,000 birds will be protected from human disturbance. Birds including the beloved Atlantic Puffin and Arctic Tern will now have safe feeding spaces which will be safeguarded for the future. This announcement is fantastic news for sea bird species, some of which have been in decline for several decades. Finally, this month on Bonfire Night some people will celebrate Guy Fawkes’ thwarted plan to blow up the Houses of Parliament. The loud bangs and whizzes paired with blinding flashes of light can cause anxiety and stress to companion animals and, therefore, we explore how we can help them to remain anxiety free.
