It is a topic that is near and dear to many people, but one that I find often ignored in conversations of sustainability and environmental responsibility.

The amount of natural resources used to feed, water, tend, and accomodate our domesticated pets is staggering. This combined with the toxic nature of cat litter, dog feces, and aquarium carbon filters makes me wonder if we shouldn't start curbing our companion habits.
When looking at the balance sheet, aren't pets really a luxury item that should fall into the jet-ski and hot tub sector of environmental priorities?
