Dear Catster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.
Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.
Catster magazine, www.catster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
Acetaminophen Found In Unrecalled Pet Food
On March 16th of this year I began what turned into 3 months of research on what we were not being told by the media or the FDA on the pet food recall. On May 30th I began uploading that research to
If you followed the news, you know the poison was melamine, it killed 16 pets, and everything is fine now.
Unfortunately, what was reported in the media is a bald faced lie!
The truth is melamine is less toxic than common table salt, a conservative estimate is several hundred thousand pets were killed, and unrecalled pet food continues to kill as we speak.
In the course of testing samples of pet food submitted to a private lab for analysis, out of 150 samples tested, 5 of those samples turned up positive for acetaminophen (Tylenol). Acetaminophen is dangerous to dogs and absolutely leathal to cats. The quantities of acetaminophen found in the food ranged from trace amounts to levels lethal to a cat in a single feeding.
The samples testing positive contained no melamine and are not on any pet food company announced recall lists. The lab in question, ExperTox, is a fully accredited forensic analytical lab, yet the FDA has refused to investigate the findings, and the mainstream media is acting like the three little monkeys.
