OMG!!! Those are the most unethical, immoral set of instructions I have ever seen. Did Bourla write them?

I'll go with option three and report back with my findings.

Words to live by. With your permission, I'm framing these for my desk.

Funny thing about people and spay/neuter. Where I live, they will spay a female but defend a male's balls as if they were a human's.

Oh wait, that's changed now, hasn't it?

As a veterinarian myself who practiced for 40 years , I agree wholeheartedly. Drugs , muzzles, and cat bags save a lot of flesh, blood, and bandages .

Big Pharma, drug pushers extraordinaire. Of course cats have a code of ethics! “You leave me alone, I’ll leave you alone. You be nice to me, I’ll be nice to you. You hurt me, I’ll hurt you.” 😼

always treat a cat with lots of regards. most are quite harmless. unless of course, you intend to either bathe them, or take them to the vet. If the vet were like that I would not even think of taking anyone there. but we have a nice vet, who uses his brain !

Makes me think of Girl with the Dogs on YouTube (she grooms cats, too). She trims the murder mittens first. Mean kitties wear the Trouble Bubble or get groomed in the Rage Cage.

My fabulous Siberian cat has yet to encounter the vet who can get him out of the carrier, much less weigh, examine or vaccinate him....and that's after a sedative.

Gatito, how do you feel about spay/neuter as a default for family cats?

I can't keep up with all these pseudo philosophers, but many ended up on the Index of Forbidden Books, including Kant. Believe in unlimited free speech? Read Syllabus of Errors by Pope Pius IX... Unless , like many, you believe that only speech that should be limited is that of Catholic Church.

I don't know enough of all the poison of pseudo philosophers such as Kant to argue. The suppression of Saint Thomas Aquinas and extremely logical thinking by fake Vatican II church is one reason we are in this mess. Basically, A common idea was only what you experienced was real. John Paul II got advanced degree in phenemonology... Total bullshit. That John Paul, yes

Doesn’t everyone know these things?

Cats win in a fair fight

Pretty muddled, anthropocentric thinking. "Ethics" are besides the point: cats are rational creatures; they have interests, they can assess when those interests are threatened, and, like humans, can and will use violence to defend their interests. They surely "consider" their interests in a time oriented way and are fully aware of them extending into the future. Dumb Vets ... before this, I did not necessarily hold that against that Vet degreed big Pharma CEO - Pfizer CEO, right?
