These guys were destined for the table from the start.  They're bred to grow to (beyond) full size in three months and they aren't really healthy.  The hen's liver was already in poor shape and the boys had these weird, long hearts.  Their joints just can't handle the weight of the birds and they would waddle a few steps then sit down.  Well, plump down.  It was kind of a controlled fall.

 

I decided that my options were to either give up meat entirely or participate in the process that brings it to my table.  Harsh, and I don't like it, but I'm not yet willing to become a vegetarian.

Good morning, and welcome to August.

Back in the day, Nikki would do a first day of the month post, but she hasn't been here in months.

Woke up this morning to find (well, Jacquie found it first) a "present" on the bedroom floor. One of the cats caught and killed a mouse and left us the trophy. Riley had been after something in the kitchen recently, and we set out some traps after finding evidence, but the traps remain unsprung.

I am wondering if there is a correlation between cats and celiac/NCGI??

My cat died on Friday, under 10, no obvious reason :(

She was a useless mouser. I once saw a mouse run between her front paws, and she didn't even notice.

There do seem to be an awful lot of them about here.

This seems totally beyond possibility, but you made my brain go out of normalcy. WTH?

Cats and celiac disease.

I probably had celiac disease at a low level for decades before it flared up big time in August of 1995. Diagnosis did not come until July of 2000--five years of celiac hell.

On July 1, 1995, our first cat adopted us. A long story, but he was lost and wandering and we took him in--intending it to be temporary until we could find where he belonged. It turned out he belonged with us. :wub:

But now I wonder: was the timing a coincidence, or was there more to it?

And even if it is so, it won't change my love of the cats who allow us to share their home.

Hahaha, always glad help freak someone's head just a little bit, especially if it involves cats.

Ours was a rescue cat, who I knew was coming to live with us as soon as I saw her little face on the website.

I hope some new cats choose us soon....

Took our puppy to the vet last night... he has been having problems walking and stuff... he is 14 or 15 years old (was a rescue so do not know)... dx was arthritis... not sure how much time we have left with him... our son has only known life with our puppy around (we got him the year before our son was born). Gonna be rough when the time comes. BUT for now, got him some narcotics to try.

11 year-old Son had negative blood panel, but went on gluten-free diet of his own volition to see if his concentration would improve, his temper abate, and his energy level would increase. Miraculous response!

Well the puppy is acting a bit younger on the narcotics. At least he is not falling over when going potty and can shake himself out again. So I guess that means it was a good call on the drugs for now.

Hope your doggy improves, so hard to see them struggling.

I hope a yeti doesn't choose us....

Definitely no cat involved with the Celiac here, I've been terribly allergic since birth.

 

 

As to the yeti, he's sore and creaky but moving better then before. ;)

At about noon on Feb. 2, South Brunswick Police responded to the MVC facility on Route 130 in Dayton on reports that a man renewing his driver's license refused to remove the pasta strainer he was wearing on his head for his license photo, according to a police report.

 

According to the police report, an MVC employee told Williams that it's against policy for people to wear head coverings in license photos, unless it's for religious reasons. 

"As a Pastafarian, I believe the universe was created by a Flying Spaghetti Monster," Williams said. "The strainer is a showing of my devoutness to the religion."
