Because of spam, I personally moderate all comments left on my blog. However, because of health issues, I will not be able to do so in the future.

If you have a personal question about LI or any related topic you can send me an email at I will try to respond.

Otherwise, this blog is now a legacy site, meaning that I am not updating it any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

In addition, my old website, Planet Lactose, has been taken down because of the age of the information. Unfortunately, that means links to the site on this blog will no longer work.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on or Almost 100,000 words on LI, allergies, milk products, milk-free products, and the genetics of intolerance, along with large helpings of the weirdness that is the Net.

Should Cats Go Vegan?

Should Cats Go Vegan? was the title on Kathy Covey's The Cat's Meow column on

I didn't have to read the article to know that the answer is a firm "no."

Cats are carnivores. Humans are omnivores. Humans can easily subsist on an all-plant diet. Carnivores can survive one, but it takes special effort and is contrary to their basic natures.

Vegan cats are examples of animal cruelty. Sometimes I wonder if vegans really understand the concept.

Choice, people. If you want to choose a vegan diet for yourselves, go for it. But don't inflict it on others. That's the same logic you use to condemn others for eating animals. Now apply it to yourselves.
