    Veg*n veg :)

    I am Vegan....but not a perfect Vegan. somtimes I slip and will end up eating something with dairy or eggs. But not often, I just get right back on the Vegan train. Hopefully one day I can manage to be Vegan 100%.

    The International Guinea Pig Adventure

    Hi Everyone, I just wanted to post in here that Charlie made it safe and sound to Sunny San Diego CA last week :). Unfortunately he hasn't had that many adventures here since I've been so busy with work and school, but he has had a chance to meet and play with the furballs here ;). I posted a...

    Charlie's Photo Journal

    Then Charlie spotted this little furball smaller than him running around and wanted to investigate...it was Bella the hamster! Bella was a little startled: Finally Charlie got to take a picture with me. Don't mind that I look a little scary, its late and I'm getting ready for bed, hehe...

    Veg*n Would you?

    I probably still wouldn't eat them. I'm vegan and that would just completely go against the definition of being vegan. I was watching something on Animal Planet the other day where thousands of chickens were rescued from a natural disaster situation. Well hundreds went to a rescue. The...

    Veg*n Throw away or eat?

    Yea its really tricky. Same thing goes for people who are Vegan and wonder if its ok to buy second hand leather items (clothes, furniture, etc.) Because if its second hand, that means you are not putting money into the industry, technically. But it comes down to a matter of choice and belief...

    Veg*n Throw away or eat?

    I wouldn't have thought about it twice, because at this point just the thought of the flesh of a dead animal in my mouth is disgusting. To me its not really good reasoning to say, well I'll eat it so it doesn't go to waste. I feel like this is the same type of reasoning people use when...

    Veg*n Dairy free cheese

    Ack! I"m so frustrated, I cannot seem to find Vegan cheese anywhere! Every single cheese I find that is supposed to be dairy free has SOME casinate in it, even if its just a small % like they say. I am desprately trying to find imitation Mozarella and Parmesan, and all of them have some...

    Veg*n Vegetarians, I need help

    Hey everyone, well I am very proud to say that when I posted this original post, not long after that same day I decided I would go cold turkey. And now, almost 2 months later, I have not since touched a piece of meat :). In fact, I went vegan all together. Its been a little more challenging...

    Veg*n Vegetarians, I need help

    The most traumatic things in my mind right now are seeing the video on the PETA site, giving 30 reasons on why to go veg. One part of the video shows a couple of large pigs hung upside down by their leg and squirming around and one of them slamming on he ground and being beaten and squealing in...

    Veg*n Vegetarians, I need help

    WELL I made a big decision. I'm trying to go cold turkey now. today is my third day meatless, and you know what? the past 3 days have not been hard AT ALL! I mean, I know its only 3 days, hehe, so who knows how I'll feel in a week or three weeks or when holidays roll around. but so far so...

I am volunteering at a Humane Society and giving my own animals the best life possible. However, in my journey to bettering the lives of animals, I have also decided I would like to also...
