If Global Warming Doesn't Get Us, The CATS Will

10/23/2019  I came across a short news item which I think is of value, and which I want to repeat it here for your consideration. It has to do with all of this fear-mongering that cats are going to be the downfall of civilization because they are wiping out all of the other wildlife on the planet - all of which is pure BS. Nonetheless, this false flag argument seems to be gaining traction within the general public, and I think us cat-parents/guardians had better step up to the plate to broadcast an alternative to the BS narrative - before it gets too out of control. Local city/state governments are already enacting restrictions on cats - especially feral cats.


[On a related subject: Singapore has had laws on the books since 1989 stating that residents of high-rise apartment buildings cannot have ANY cats. It's that kind of thinking that any sane, rational cat-parent must be afraid of, and battle.]

The story is from The SandPaper dot net, dated 10/23/2019. It is a letter to the editor. And I quote:

To the Editor:

In response to the letter “Disturbing Decline” (9/18) that cited “some experts’” opinion that cats kill hundreds of millions of animals each year, I find hard to believe. By feeding feral cats, I’m saving wildlife.

When the plague, spread by rodent fleas, killed millions, it was cats that saved mankind. Blame humans who are destroying our environment for the animal decline in the area.

Carol Giannantonio


I want to extend a thank you to Carol Giannantonio, both personally, and on behalf of all cat-parents/guardians everywhere. It's high time we begin to push back on this ridiculous chinwag that cats are bad for human society. WE NEED TO RE-SPIN THE SPIN!


A Serious Subject - Herbicides in Pet Food

Roundup® - an invisible killer that effects our dogs and cats.

Roundup® is a Monsanto/Bayer brand of glyphosate-based herbicides. Glyphosate is the most widely used herbicide in the Untied States.

Most of us are aware of the grave situation on our planet whereby Roundup® is used to inhibit weed growth in a broad spectrum of plant life. Most of us, however, don't stop to think about Roundup®'s effect on our pets.

The concern surrounding Roundup® may not have motivated you to become an active participant in environmental issues, but it should. Once you become aware of its effect on your companion animals, maybe you should shift your awareness into some kind of political/societal action.

Watch as Dr. Andrew Jones, DVM and Online Veterinarian, in his video series on Veterinary Secrets (the #1 Natural Pet Health Network on YouTube!), addresses a recent study which revealed that 18 dog and cat foods tested at Cornell University contained the herbicide Roundup®. Here's a direct link to the study: Cornell
