Earlier this week, rumors that Ellen DeGeneres was planning on bringing a vegan cat food to market had cat health advocates, including me, up in arms. Halo Purely for Pets®, the pet food company involved in the rumors, has since announced that the rumor is false.

Lorie Huston, DVM, wrote about why vegan diets are a really bad idea for cats.
