Maya and a MoFo Wrap-Up

maya

I couldn’t think of a better way to end Vegan MoFo (and to celebrate Halloween at the same time) than with our beautiful cat, Maya!  I wanted to write about her for my last MoFo post because she had a lot to do with us going vegetarian. I think when you live with an animal, you start to realize that they aren’t just “things”, and that realization made us look at all animals differently.

If you want to add an animal companion to your life there are so many wonderful animals that need to be adopted.  Please go to a shelter or a rescue organization rather than going to a breeder.  Maya was a stray that we adopted from a former roommate (thank you, Kathryn!), and if we could afford to take more animals in, we would do it in a heartbeat.  Having her in our lives is so wonderful, and she makes us laugh all the time.  Check her out up there on that pillow.  Seems a little big, you say?  Oh, that’s funny, she didn’t notice.

Now that Vegan MoFo has come to a close, I have to say that I’m so glad I participated.  I really loved reading all my favorite blogs, and also finding new favorites.  I’m excited that so many people were a part of it, because it really is proof that the vegan movement is strong and growing.  All of this amazing food might just convince a meat eater to try at least one veg meal a week, and then maybe two, and so on and so on.  I used to swear I would never be a vegetarian, and yet here I am. If someone like me can change, anyone can.  There is hope!

Now, since this month is supposed to be about vegan food, and it is almost Halloween, I have to leave you with a food image that makes me feel like going out and trick-or-treating!  Something about those curly stems, and the lighting of this photo just evokes the feeling of a cool Halloween morning for me.  Hope you enjoy yours and you get your fill of vegan candy!

  1. Maya is adorable — I have a long-haired cat too.

    I have had a cat my entire life and a dog the past 8 yrs. I have also been a vegetarian since I was 14 (I am 23 now). It is funny, I never put it together that having pets is part of why I am a vegetarian. You’re right, animals aren’t “things” they are my best friends.

    Happy Halloween!

  2. That squash photo is beautiful! (Maya is beautiful, too.)
