    Blue Buffalo Company, Ltd. is voluntarily recalling a limited production of Blue Kitty Yums Chicken Recipe Cat Treats that may contain low levels of propylene glycol, which is not permitted by the FDA for use in cat food.

    Cats reacting to high doses of propylene glycol may exhibit signs of depression and may have a loss of coordination, muscle twitching, and excessive urination and thirst. If your cat has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.

    I read this, and immediately thought, ‘Will it include the director & staff of MAS? Oh, no, of course not. They have no convictions.’

    Tri-County Animal Rescue Center in Columbus, GA, refuses to give dog back to military family who changed their mind about surrendering him: http://www.fox5atlanta.com/news/46939711-story

    Apparently, they won’t return the dog because he is “sad.”
