Living a cruelty free lifestyle means doing as much as you possibly can within reason to avoid supporting the suffering of animals. Humans seem to believe that animals are ours to use for food, clothing, entertainment and experimentation. But who gives us the right to use them? Just because animals don't speak the same language as us does not mean that they are not intelligent - they have feelings too and should be treated with respect and given a happy and healthy life, much as we also desire. By making gradual changes, it is easy to adopt a more compassionate lifestyle.
