These products appeal to people who have chosen a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle for ethical reasons, and want to apply the same principles to their cats. As a feline veterinarian, I absolutely do not recommend trying to turn your cat into a vegetarian or vegan, but if you are determined to do so, here is my best guidance for you. Products The three most commonly used products are: Wysong Vegan, Vege-Cat, and Evolution.
Healing and the ocean December 1st, I grew up by the sea and often tell people that the ocean is in my blood. Recently I came across some fascinating old research that made me think that this is true in a far more literal sense than I had ever thought possible.
The research dates back to the early s and was conducted by French biologist and self-taught physician Rene Quinton. In analyzing the composition of human plasma and that of ocean water, and superimposing the two, Quinton observed that they are virtually identical — the only real difference between the two being that ocean water is three times more concentrated than plasma.
Quinton attributed this difference to the fact that, since life originated in the ocean millions of years ago, seawater has become more concentrated. His conclusion was that we all still carry original ocean water in our blood. In a series of experiments he drained progressively more blood from dogs, replacing it with seawater diluted to have the same concentration as plasma.
In the final experiment all the blood was drained from a dog and, when the poor animal was on the verge of death, an equal amount of seawater was introduced through a vein.
Although the dog experienced a rough couple of months, he recovered fully on his own with no medical treatment of any kind. He was then renamed Sodium, spared further experimentation, and he continued to live at the Quinton clinic until he died of natural causes years later.
If you think this story defies our basic understanding of physiology and that it must have been made up, you are not alone. I thought the same thing when I first read it. After all, even if plasma and seawater are alike, blood is much more than plasma alone and also contains cells and all-important hemoglobin that is key to carrying oxygen to the brain and other organs of the body that keep us alive.
However, aside from the thorough documentation kept at the time and the numerous witness reports, the experiment was also repeated by a team of French physicians in under modern-day controlled hospital conditions and the outcome was the same.
The only explanation I can think of is that some yet-to-be-identified component of seawater must have compensated, at least partially, for the lack of blood components until the body was able to reconstitute them.
Quinton then observed that many illnesses plaguing humanity in his day were associated with a disturbance in the composition of plasma. Modern medicine has clearly embraced the opposite view that it is bacteria or viruses, or other pathogens that cause illness, and that a person who becomes ill just happened to be exposed to a bug by being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Though bacteria and other pathogens clearly play a role, in most cases they only seriously affect people who present an inner environment already favorable for disease.
The rest, as they say, is history. Quinton developed a protocol for harvesting and purifying seawater, and administered it in pure or diluted form to patients either by mouth, injection or enema, and carefully recorded changes in their health keeping detailed progress reports including before and after photographs.
Much of this data, including accounts of the dog studies, can be found on this Canadian website: This is not the same as saline drips that were common at the time and still are today that were helpful, but seawater brought about much higher recovery rates. Aside from cholera, looking at the case histories on the website, it is clear that Quinton treated a broad range of health conditions.
Many of the patients he saw were small children with what would be called today failure to thrive, or an inability to gain weight. Other cases include children and adults with eczema, psoriasis, and a variety of digestive disorders from colitis to what is now known as Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
You may wonder why, if this treatment was so helpful, no one talks about it today. The reality is that medicine increasingly lost interest in natural treatments and opted instead for synthetic drugs that could be patented.
This started slowly, but gained momentum after World War I with the development of the chemical industry. At that time Quinton and many other innovative doctors fell out of favor and were labeled as quacks.
However, there still are doctors in France carrying out this work, apparently with continued success, as a brief internet search will reveal. One of these is the Canadian company Ocean Plasma — http: I have personally been taking and recommending their products and I am finding them to be helpful for many, including children.
These products have been extensively purified, tested for possible contaminants, and found to be pure. They are high in sodium, which can be a concern in some cases, for instance those with high blood pressure.
However, the sodium in this water has a different effect from table salt because it is balanced with a complete range of minerals and trace elements.A survey of nearly Internet users tested associations between personality traits, past behavior, and viewing cat-related media online. • The study also examined Internet users’ motivations for consuming cat-related content, including .

Louis Wain (5 August – 4 July ) was an English artist best known for his drawings, which consistently featured anthropomorphised large-eyed cats and kittens.
In his later years he may have suffered from schizophrenia (although this claim is disputed among specialists), which, according to some psychiatrists, can be seen in his works.
This article probably should specify types of cats – typically tabby types I’m assuming – because there are some breeds that can be quite efficient hunters-for-food and basically be tinier dogs.
