Happy EIGHTH Gotcha Day Queen Eva, my precious Baby Girl!

 love1 love1 love1

Once again I ask dear Lola to change just the title of the thread to say 8th instead of 7th. Her story is on the first page of course.  I've been collecting current pictures of her busy doings to post on her Gotcha Day but haven't yet got them sorted.  I meant to but...  Here's a few anyway.

Look at her thumb! And tail, always in motion

General Discussion / Re: Chase Bank Question
« Last post by Pookie on August 09, 2018, 10:57:01 PM »
I don't know about Chase specifically, but I'm not aware that banks post deposited checks online.  That said, you can ask the bank to provide copies of deposited checks (and copies of the deposit slips) and they should provide them to you.  I don't know if they charge for the service or not, but they do keep copies of those items.

I hope this helps!   HeadButt

EDIT:  I should say, if you ask the bank for copies, it helps them if you can provide a check number, amount and/or date (range) of deposit to help them find what you're looking for.  You can ask for copies of all deposited checks for July 2018, and you'll get a pile o'paper, but if you know specifically what you need, the more information you can give them, the better.

If anyone banks with Chase... can you see (online or on paper) DEPOSITS, that are in the form of a check, made to your account?

Try local Vap shops for CBD. They sell small quantities.

CBD oil is not marijuana.  There are two different substances being discussed in that article, so some one didn't do his homework very well.

As for the couple with the overweight cat, yep just looking for a quick fix, can't be bothered actually helping the cat.

CBD is discussed and used quite a lot among the members in the raw feeding for IBD group.

I might consider trying it for myself for sleep issues, if I could afford it.  But I wouldn't use it on my cats.

Medical Issues / Pot for pets: U.S. federal law puts vets into a quandary

Not sure how I feel about this.  I just don't trust using something like cannabis with pets, with the possible exception of using it to control seizures.  Personally, I just think so many of these issues would resolve themselves if people just fed a species-appropriate diet.

REUTERS - A wave of medical research is providing fresh evidence that marijuana may help dogs and cats cope with arthritis, epilepsy, anxiety and other maladies without the side effects of traditional drugs, but veterinarians are afraid to prescribe it for fear of running afoul of federal laws.

At least 30 U.S. states have legalized medical marijuana, but none of them make provisions for ailing animals.

As a result, veterinarians are reluctant to even discuss marijuana, which remains illegal under federal law, over concerns of putting their professional licenses at risk, said Dr. Jeffrey Powers, chair of the American Veterinary Medical Association's subcommittee on cannabinoids. That leaves it to pet owners themselves to make life-altering decisions about dosing and duration of the treatment.

Cornell University researchers found CBD increases comfort and activity in dogs with arthritis, according to a study published in July in Frontiers in Veterinary Science. CBD led to a reduction in frequency of seizures in 89 percent of dogs with epilepsy, according to preliminary results of a Colorado State University study released last month.

Arthritis = inflammation.  Rather than treating the symptom, determine where the inflammation is coming from.  Start by changing the diet.  If that doesn't completely resolve the problem, look at the environment:  are there a lot of chemicals in/around the home, for example?

Quote
Julienne Brown, 26, and Jacob Kish, 25, who live in Los Angeles with an overweight Savannah cat named Dude who suffers from arthritis pain, attended the panel discussion. Kish said they will now look into treating Dude with CBD.

"This is the first I've heard that this is an option," Kish said. "So we're really excited."

I would bet they're feeding that poor cat a dry food, which is why the cat is overweight, which then causes/contributes to the arthritis.  But they'd rather use CBD . . . .  bangshead bangshead bangshead bangshead bangshead bangshead

Unfortunately finding a caring and competent cat is like finding the needle in a haystack.

???  Did you mean "vet?"
