I'm new to the site. I'm 30 and from Maryland, near Washington DC. I've been a vegetarian for about 7 years now but very rarely ate meat prior to being full veg. I have 4 cats that I love so much, they're my furry children.
I joined to find like minded individuals that understand my compassion for all life. A lot of people think my lifestyle is a joke or weird. It gets exhausting trying to explain and defend my reasons for being a vegetarian. I was very lucky to find my boyfriend...he still eats meat but accepts my vegetarian diet and I even introduced him to tofu and he loves it so we have meatless meals regularly.
I work full time for a tire distributor as a claims adjuster for warranties and I volunteer at the local humane society as a cat cuddler during my free time.
I'm excited to meet everyone :)
