Suddenly, without warning, dgk exclaimed (11/24/2009 9:27 AM):
And Espy is VERY good at staring at me. He does that for two things. The first is some dry ... Then he starts making pathetic mewling noises. So I break two Temptations in half and it's like he got four.

Meep does the mind control thing to get me to pet her, when I don't want to. I also used to dream about her, then wake up to find her staring at me. That was a bit creepy.

In searching around the web and looking at a cat memorial... the number o=f cats dying of renal failure is ... Now I see people losing much younger animals to this disease. =A0Anyone have any id=ea why it's becoming so common?

Melomine in the Chinese wheat. That's what killed my cat 3 days after her bloodwork showed normal kidney values. She was being retested for anemia. She died shortly before the tainted pet food hit the news, so we didn't know what happened at the time. It was just so sudden. Had she not been sick already, it may not have killed her. Of course, had she not been sick, I would not have been trying a variety of new foods to get her to eat, several of which came up later on the tainted food list. Her normal food did not have wheat gluten in it.

I wouldn't be surprised if any many cats who did not get sick, got some limited amount of damage. And considering the lack of repercussions, I would not be surprised if the wheat gluten is still tainted, just at a lower level.

That's because vet bills have gone up astronomically. What do you think... that people just want to dump their beloved pets? I told everyone when =91pet health insurance=92 first came along that this would happen. Now the bastards are raping their clientele AND the insurance companies to boot. Just like the dentists did. Same thing. Next it=92ll be a crime not to mortgage your home to get your pet treated. You=92ll be guilty of 2nd degree murder. As you should. I=92ll gladly pay more tax dollars to hire more police to do the investigations. More judges and jails, too. No probleemo.

And we can only guess what will happen in the future to those cats and dogs who suffered minimal damage at the time. :-(
