PRAYER REQUEST:  Linda, a cat rescuer and graphic artist in Bensonhurst, requests prayers for Charlie, her 12-year-old cat. He was just diagnosed with diabetes.

Two weeks ago he was 18 pounds; now he’s 16 pounds. Linda and Eddie are troopers about Charlie.

Six-year-old Frisky, her other kitty, also has health issues. They have seven house cat companions and feed about 20 outdoor kitties. She spayed/neutered all of them. Please visualize Charlie…he needs positive healing energies. Peace and God Bless!



Home toxins vary from cleaning products to wood fuel.

Over-the-Counter Human Medications: Ibuprofen, naproxen, acetaminophen as well as herbal and nutraceutical products (fish oil, joint supplements) are extremely dangerous to pets.

Human Prescription Medications: Antidepressants and pain meds (opioids and prescription non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), heart medications, blood pressure pills.

DID U KNOW…Chickens used to wear eyeglasses, AKA chickens goggles, chicken specs. These small eyeglasses were intended to prevent cannibalism and feather pecking. Some had rose-colored lenses; the coloring was to prevent the chicken wearing them from recognizing blood on other chickens.

Chicken specs were bulk-produced and sold throughout the United States in the beginning of the 20th century.

There are as many chickens on earth as there are humans.
