Why My Pet’s are Encourgaing Me To Have a More Vegan Mindset

(Disclaimer. Pet owners please be advised that some info in this post is distressing and graphic. While no video footage is used or linked please be aware this is to address a real issue. Thank you for your support and hopefully we can stop this.)

My babies. Maxie and Damos. Xx

Wow that’s a long title. But it’s true. If you don’t already know I have 2 playful chinchilla’s. And these guys although small have become a major part of my life. With big personalities and adorable moments that make you make to just say ‘awwww’ every few minutes. These guys have changed my viewing on alot of things. 

This blog post is not pissing on anyone who does buy brands who do test on animals. Your money, your choice guys. 

Makeup Brands. I refuse to buy any brands that test on animals or are involved with a third party that does. Sorry Mac and Nars this northern gal aint gonna be a customer. For me supporting a brand that does I wouldn’t deserve the 2 floofers in my life. So I am be buying more animal friendly products. Vegan products. And that is fine with me. There are so many brands who do NOT test on animals that don’t get the limelight like they should. Body Shop, Kiko, Sheersense and Lush to name a few. If in doubt look for the bunny logo which is only allowed to used by brands that 100% do NOT use or test on animals. 

Buying fur. Never. Never will I buy real fur. I had always been against the fur trade which is illegal in some parts but now more than ever. Just no. After watching a video where animals such as foxes and badgers etc died from elctrotuction and gas I already felt sick. Then it turned to chinchillas. They broke their necks. They killed them while the tiny animal struggled to break free. And thats when I lost it. I cried so damn much! All for the damn fur trade!! 

If you really want fur buy faux fur and don’t be afraid too double check that is in fact fake fur. You can do this by spreading the hair fibres apart and seeing if the fibres are stitched into the fabric. You will see all the stitching. If they are its fake, if it looks like skin, then leave it. Or if in doubt leave it on the shelf. 

Am I going Vegan? Well I’m making some life changes. Slowly. Being a vegan is a huge step forward for me so I’m going to learn more first. It’s not a desicion I want to make lightly. While making some changes I want to learn and do research so I can stay healthy. Any advice would be fab guys!!! 

Damos. Not sure if he wants to jump or relax!!
My boys have really opened my eyes to many things and these things make me angry and uncomfortable. So I want to raise awareness about animal cruelty by supporting animal friendly brands, sharing photos of my beautiful chins and re-educating people where needed. 

Its the 21st centuary. We dont need real fur or products that are tested on animals. Get with the times brands or you’ll lose your custom. 

Until next time folks.

  1. I don’t think I’ll ever go vegan. I grew up on a meat-based diet and my body is too accustomed to it. It’s post like these that do make me think twice before buying certain products. I’d never buy real fur, I’ve seen the way it’s made here in NL and it’s disgusting. And all that suffering for a product I don’t even think looks good? You can keep that shit, no thank you.

  2. Hello I think this is a wonderful post! I think being conscientious about all of these things is important. I am vegetarian (I still eat eggs). I am vegetarian for the environment. The meat industry is one of the largest contributors to climate change after energy. Cows produce more methane than any other human related source!! Regardless, of whether anyone becomes a vegan/veggie of any sort I think it is so important to assess our consumption and the affects of the products we buy. Ethical shopping and reeducation for the win!! 🙂
