I’m curious what your opinion is about this Facebook post from a cat charity. Even ignoring (or at least excusing) the vastly inadequate discussion about food quality versus advertising, what disturbs me is that a charity would suggest that owners feed their pets what the owner might consider a lesser quality food and donate the money they save to the charity.
I’ve redacted the names because I don’t mean to call out a particular charity or individual. The first post is from the cat charity.
I actually support this charity, but to me, it’s crossing the line for several reasons.
- It assumes I’ve not educated myself about food quality versus advertising.
- It suggests I’m irresponsible for wasting my money on a food I may have chosen to feed my pet.
- And it tells me what to do with my money (a big no-no in my book). Granted, they want to increase their donations, but this seems like a poor way to go about it.
Am I’m completely overreacting, or does this rub any of you the wrong way too?
And yes, I noticed that the vet wants you to save money on food and possibly spend it at her clinic getting your pet’s teeth cleaned…..again, possibly a valid argument, but very poorly executed.
