The cat's not well - sickness and diarrhoea! The diarrhoea lands in the litter tray but the vomit could be anywhere!!

While I'm here, I'm getting flipping sick of vegan plant-based food being passed off as 'chichen tenders' or 'sausages' and claims on food packages that we can make the world a better place by eating crap. If you want to be a vegan eat vegetables the way god made them. There's no need to pretend it's a dead animal!
I think that's a bit unfair, there are plenty of people that like the taste of meat but for environmental or moral reasons they'd rather not eat it. Doesn't seem unreasonable that they might want a meat-tasting alternative which gives them something of the experience of eating meat without the ethical and moral complications that they might want to avoid.
What I said about vegans was tongue-in-cheek, but they shouldn't label food as chicken strips if it's just a substitute.

By the way, how do people who think meat eating's immoral know what it tastes like? Perhaps we should have human meat substitutes for people who think cannibalism's immoral. ;)
:shock: :? :lol: :lol:

Our little Tinky (on the right), had a thyroid problem, had to get her over to Newmarket Animal Clinic for a week of treatment, one injection into her thyroid to control her overeating, she was throwing up quite frequently whilst losing weight, around £3k later, (no she wasn’t insured) 🙄, she’s fine albeit coughing up the odd furball, she’s one of two house cats so we have to cope with that..

Not a cat person myself but found a stray kitten last evening in my backyard, calling out for her mother for most of the night. Had the same colors as Derek's cat, she wasn't too young but did look a bit terrified so gave her a bit of food and she was gone by morning. Hopefully her mother came back for her.

Not really a rant but this is the rant corner so irresponsible parenting and all that :evil:

Mods, can you change the name of this thread to "The Power of Ranting"? It looks out of place on the forum now. :)

Does Peter Webb frequent these forums? There’s a chap on a telegram group I’ve joined lately that keeps name dropping him, I’m beginning to wonder how legitimate this chap (not peter) is?
Yes, I post here. Was thinking of changing my alias so it's more obvious.

I see you have to cope with the cat(s) getting in the way of the TV as well. :)

Hope they stay healthy.

We have not been able to ascertain that as of yet. Euler claims to be Peter but he doesn't even have 20k posts, so my money is on Derek27.

you cant really start posting with your actual name Peter Webb nobody would believe it, bit like Adam Heathcote posting under his real name.

If you must could you not just put it on your blog and/or twitter that your forum name is Euler, that would have credence.
