Why cats are good pets
THUGS who run over cats and leave them to die could be slapped with fines and forced to help beloved owners get their pets back, to close a loophole in the law. Environment Secretary Michael Gove and Transport Secretary Chris Grayling are "seriously considering" proposals which would make it illegal for anyone who knowingly hits a cat to leave the scene - which currently applies to dogs and other larger animals. The private members' bill from MP Rehman Chishti is set to come back to the Commons within weeks, and Mr Gove has described his ideas as “very reasonable” and an "inspiration" - instructing his team to look into how to support the ideas. The Environment boss said last week: "As a cat owner myself I know how important pets are are in the lives of all our families. "Rehman's bill gives us a chance to address the inequality."

It was love at first sight when David Delpino rescued his cat Leia during NBC’s ‘Clear the Shelters’ event in 2015. “I absolutely love this cat,” David said. But one day in October 2017, Leia’s curiosity got her into some trouble. “Unknowingly, I left my bag and I had a Ziploc bag of ibuprofen and she got into the ibuprofen from there,” recalled David. He knew something was wrong as Leia was losing her balance. Then, she collapsed right in his lap. “I was freaking out but I used to work in emergency medicine, so I was like initially I have to go to the hospital quick,” said David. Leia was in the hospital for several days, needing two blood transfusions. The 2-year-old cat was bleeding internally. Dr. Ian Kupkee says it was the ibuprofen that caused all the problems. “Human pain relieving agents are designed to work with human chemistry, human bio chemistry,” the doctor explained. Dr. Kupkee is a veterinarian at … [Read more...] about Human Meds Could Cause Your Pet to Overdose
