Do any of you know of pet foods that are NOT tested on animals?
The following all test on animals:
Nestlé Purina/Friskies: Alpo, Bonio, Felix, Go Cat, Gourmet, Omega Complete, Proplan, Spillers, Vital Balance, Winalot.
Pedigree, Masterfoods (Mars Inc): Bounce, Cesar, Chappie, Frolic, James Wellbeloved, Katkins, Kitekat, Pal, Pedigree Chum, Royal Canin, Sheba, Techni-cal (US & Canada), Whiskas. Pedigree also manufacture Thomas rabbit food and Trill bird food.
and of course Iams and Hills Science Diet.

I need something to feed my cat and I'm having trouble finding food for him :/

Cats aren't vegetarian. Feeding them a vegetarian diet is a fast-track to making them ill.

Vegan Wares on Smith St. has vegan cat food that has synthetic taurine in it, so the cat still gets all the stuff it needs to be healthy, without eating any other animals. It's formulated by a vet, whose name is Sandy something or other.

Commenting on this post almost 5 years later as I am going through old posts.)

The vegan pet food product mentioned by commenters above is Veganpet.

The current list of suppliers from the website is below (I particularly recommend visiting Radical Grocery!), and in addition I believe Veganpet is still also sold at the Vegan Wares (shoe) store at 78 Smith Street, Collingwood.

I also want to point out, for clarity, that there's a difference between vegan pet food, and non-vegan (including meat based) pet food which has not been tested on animals. I don't know for sure that the latter exists in australia, though.
