In this final post of 2009, I want to thank all of you for making this my most effective year yet in writing about vegetarian and farmed animal issues. I feel immense gratitude to each of my readers for making my work here possible.
I’m ending my blogging for 2009 by saying farewell to my cat Conrad, who died suddenly, unexpectedly, and far too young earlier this year at age eleven. It’s no coincidence that my most productive decade as an animal advocate coincided with the time he was in my life. I can’t imagine having written Meat Market or The Ultimate Vegan Guide, or finding my voice for this blog, without the constant love and companionship he gave me.
