This Is Distubing - Need Your Help
« on: July 30, 2011, 08:46:13 AM »
I was appalled to see this link on Encyclopedia Britannica's page for felines, wondering if perhaps they'd messed up Dr. Pierson's catinfo.org -- unfortunately it is another website as I just found out googling:

Quote
Feed your cat prepared foods only from a reputable manufacturer at room temperature. Do not feed your cat food intended for a dog or another animal. Try to fed your cat at the same time of day and in the same place to establish a routine. A fresh bowl of water and dry cat food from a reputable manufacter to graze on should be available at all times. Food bowls and feeding utensils should be kept clean at all times.

Please help to get this woman to get her facts straight?  Can't believe how close this URL is to Dr. Pierson's  :o   http://www.catsinfo.com/contact.html

And if you'd like to reinforce that it should be www.catinfo.org they should have there, you can go to the "Edit" or "Get Involved" tabs and tell the editors -- they do accept (and research) corrections suggested.    thumbsup1 :)    http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/168536/domestic-cat#

I joined and submitted an edit. 

The part that should be edited TO catinfo.org is "outside links."  That is found at the very bottom of the page that CC linked to above.

I got that.  I just copied your entire post...and replied to certain parts of it.  lol  I figured with you working 14 days in a row, it would be EASY to confuse you.   Bumpurr1

Thanks Lola  :)  :)  Had forgotten Britannica had it listed at the bottom too  Doh1

I know I had given them Dr. Lisa's site & info;  the editors may have took the lazy way and cited the other site because it has breed info too.  bangshead

I wasn't expecting that person to contact me.  ??  I also haven't heard anything from Britannica..and wasn't expecting to.  Haven't checked to see if any changes have been made either...

No changes (yet.)  On either site  bangshead >:(

I would think even an automated email saying they've received the queries would be standard (had received them promptly from EB in the past.)   Now I wonder if there's anyone on the other end with a pulse. :-\

(Wasn't expecting that to be the case with the "info.com" person though, but ya never know with a blogger when they ask for your email in their contact form...although mine was pretty curt)  bangshead

Another very disturbing find, y'all  :(    http://www.pets90210.org/trivia.asp

These people look like they, sincerely, are out to do a whole lot of good. I would imagine that the Vegancats food sales site (link) is generous when it comes to donations  >:( bangshead

Despite its reputation for being finicky, the average cat consumes about 127,750 calories a year, nearly 28 times its own weight in food and the same amount again in liquids. Cats can be vegetarians if their diet is carefully monitored. For more information please go to: http://www.vegancats.com

Pretty steamed right now, so don't want to fire something off to them, yet.  

What on Earth can we tell these folks that they can't find in the Encyclopedias & books they must have read to accumulate so much cat "trivia"?     bangshead bangshead bangshead

They also have a page for dogs. I'm afraid to look  :o

VEGAN diet for cats??  OMG!  Doh1
A vegan diet includes all grains, beans, legumes, vegetables and fruits ... NO MEAT.  bangshead

If I say anything else, the word censor on here will blow up.
