Glad I have 2 small parrots. I stocked up on a lot of bird seed and in their diet they also eat what I eat. I’m also a vegetarian, but will eat meat before I starve.

HAHA yea, feeding the pigs to Negans people. Too bad they didn't follow up on the effects of this concept.

Rabbit doesn't have enough fat and taurine to be a sole food source for cats. You'd be better off with some quail and chickens as well. And a bit of sheep rustling.

I think I’ll have to mooch off of the dog’s stash when the time comes.
Bought enough for her to be fine for a good couple of years...and getting more at every opportunity.
I’ll be eating snow or mud while she gets the good stuff! 🤔😋

my chickens are currently eating my stash...oats, rice, bananas, noodles (going on or over the two year official expiry dates). and rejecting or going slow on a lot of it.
maybe they know GMO or not.
no eggs in 6 weeks. last stuff was chook food but half moldy.

Same here..My cats will eat even if I don't....Pet food got kind of scarce during the height of the pandemic now I am buying up their favorite food every chance I get.
