Cute, Loren

I didn't know vegetarian cat food actually caused blindness.

It seems as though I have a new component in my stereo system.  Do you suppose it's a PURR-eamplifier?

Comment by sk8eycat on September 3, 2014 at 10:38pm

Grinner, you are right.  I looked it up after I wrote that post.  I've reached the age where I can't remember words that I know I know.  Frustrating and more than a little frightening. (NObody on either side of my family has ever had Alzheimer's, but  strokes are common on my Dad's side.)

About avocados...the Hass variety is a cross between the Guatemalan type and a Mexican variety.  I'll stick to the old pure Fuerte' by the driveway. I think it's as old as I am. (75...almost)

Felaine, I think taurine is the ingredient that cats need for maintaining their vision.

Comment by sk8eycat on September 3, 2014 at 10:13pm

Hmmmm...I just looked up Avoderm pet foods:

http://www.avodermnatural.com/About/why_avocados.htm?gclid=CjwKEAjw...

They claim that only the leaves and pits of a Guatemalan variety are toxic, and they don't use either leaves or pits in their products.

Now I have to look up Guatemalan avocados....  I do know that our local raccoons and squirrels eat the Fuerte' avocados from our tree, and aren't harmed by them....  The raccoons eat everything but the skin, and make an awful greasy mess.

Thanks, Spud. I knew about most of those because I read every issue of Lori Golden's Pet Press from cover to cover.

I also knew that the green part of potatotomato, and rhubarb plants can kill humans, too.  (Some of my favorite books are murder mysteries with catering and restaurant backgrounds.  They ALL have fancy recipes that I will never use in them.  Heh!)

Peach and apricot pits contain cyanide, and cancer "clinics" in Mexico still process them, and call the result Laetrile.  Useless. And lethal.

Dogs CAN eat some fruits and veggies, but cats are obligate carnivores...they can have some veg, IF they want them, but during the 1960s some vegetarian hippies tried to convert their cats to all-veg diets, and ended up with blind cats.  I've forgoten the name for the ingredient in meat that they need, but it is absolutely necessary for healthy vision...in felines.

Spud, thanks for the information and links. This information is so important, especially when we think we are giving treats, only to discover we harm those beloved creatures with whom we share our lives.

Comment by Idaho Spud on September 3, 2014 at 2:15pm

Wasn't trying to preach to the choir.  Just looked these up out of personal interest, and thought I'd post them for anyone that wanted to know.

I already said we stopped ''weird'' years ago!
