How many five-year-olds don’t love animals? Very few. Now, how many five-year-old love animals enough to go vegetarian? Probably not as many.
In this adorable yet heartbreaking video, a little girl named Zada explains to her mom that she can no longer eat meat. Her reason? Because she likes animals.
When Zada’s mom confronts her about her decision, she asks what the little girl will eat. With her best puppy dog eyes, she replies, “I will eat whatever there is on the table, but not chicken or meat.”
Zada’s mom continues to question her decision, suggesting that the family will miss eating chicken and meat. Not Zada. She won’t miss eating them at all. And even though she said fish are not animals, she quickly said she won’t be eating them either.
I WON’T. EAT. ANIMALS.
Just when you thought the soon-to-be vegetarian couldn’t get any cuter, her mom asked her why she felt that they shouldn’t eat animals. Warning: you may melt at her response.
“I think they don’t really like being cooked in the oven.”
