ok, this board is starting to get interesting at the moment

we're talking about a "relatively" small population (employee's of Hobby Lobby)

yes or no?

ahhhh... that would be a NO.   Again (think big picture), just how does NOT PAYING FOR it equate to more unwanted pregnancies and all that goes with it?

No drama Skippy.  Just pointing out that we will all get to pay more for these unwanted pregnancies

And as a modern society we will all get to enjoy the benefits of DIY abortions like is starting to happen in Texas

He has done fantastic work on the Y board

He would be a fair and respectful mod. He also is more present on the forums, that seems to be a huge issue.

The G and O really only has one moderator for such a big place. OMR could use a hand.




This place needs cleaning up and someone who's here fairly regularly to keep an eye on things

Bigmc is fair and square and tells it as it is, he doesn't tolerate bullying, gimmickry, racism and especially he is anti paedophilia...etc which is what this board needs as the latter was/is the reason many big names stopped posting all together.

We need change







85  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Can you explain this phenomenon about eggs? on: July 01, 2014, 07:16:16 AM
when I was a kid, I started feeding my cat raw eggs in a little bowl. she'd eat'em right up.. that lasted about 2yrs until she had a blood clot and a stroke and died... granted, the cat was 22yrs old, but still... I can't help but thing the eggs weren't a good idea.  Undecided

no more eggs for my cat, well, kitten, now. just beef & cheddar fancy feast and milk.  Wink

Cow's milk isn't a good idea for kittens.  Nutritionally, it is not necessary to give a cat milk. If they are fed a balanced diet, they'll receive all the nutrients they require via their food. Also, milk contains calories that your cat is already receiving via food. Obesity & lactose intolerance can have serious health implications. There are "cat milks" available for kittens.  Also, you may want to look into a better balanced diet than Fancy Feast.  Cats have no use for carbs or other artificial ingredients.
Ingredient List*
Fancy Feast Cat Food Ingredient List

Fish broth, tuna, fish, chicken, liver, wheat gluten, meat by-products, soy flour, soy protein concentrate, artificial and natural flavors, potassium chloride, added color  Lips sealed, xanthan gum, salt, calcium phosphate, carrageenan, taurine, choline chloride, thiamine mononitrate, zinc sulfate, Vitamin E supplement, ferrous sulfate, niacin, sodium nitrite (to promote color retention), copper sulfate, calcium pantothenate, manganese sulfate, Vitamin A supplement, menadione sodium bisulfite complex (source of Vitamin K activity), pyridoxine hydrochloride, riboflavin supplement, Vitamin B-12 supplement, biotin, folic acid, Vitamin D-3 supplement, potassium iodide.

The original Tiburon/Coupe was a was not a bad looking coupe in my opinion-and Porsche contributed to its suspension tuning.

 http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2014/06/the-rise-of-the-diy-abortion-in-texas/373240/

let them skip insurance and we can just all pick up the bill the emergency room

Seriously though, what's a few pennies worth of contraception to this company.  I'm sure the insurance companies would rather provided pennies worth of contraception than thousands of dollars worth of pre/post natal insurance + ongoing costs after that.

This entire "religious freedom" argument is nonsense anyway.    Corporations can't have a religious point of view.
Maybe a Jewish owned corporation should look at this ruling and require all of their employees to stop eating pork.
Same goes for Muslim owned corporations. 

At the present time we have a conservative leaning court so we get conservative leaning decisions.  If the next POTUS is a Democrat then we will get a liberal leaning court and more liberal decisions.

I personally haven't followed any of these decisions.  I've got better things to do with my time

Just HOW does NOT paying for contraception equate to more pregnancies or emergency room visits?

General info. Is the money good. How easy is it to move up. Ups and downs of the industry. Stuff like that.  

Fly much?

Just observe the employees of any airline and you'll get a sense of what the company culture is like, especially with all the mergers.  Some companies better than others of course, but generally the pay sucks at all levels, but the benefits are great ~ IF you can use 'em; they make that difficult tho.  Very much a union mentality among many.

98  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Pet Board / Re: Does anyone know a renal diet for cats without pork? on: June 30, 2014, 06:05:41 AM
My cat Tommie had to go to the vet recently, because he was drooling and had a very bad odour from his mouth. He did eat and drink, but only small amounts. He wasn't his perky self, but who would be if you have a tooth ache?

Well he indeed has some bath teeth, but they're most probably caused by kidney problems. So the vet wants him on a renal diet. And that's where we encounter a new problem: my cat is very allergic to pork, and most brands (like Royal Canin) put some form of pork in their renal diet.

Some brands (like Hill's) use 'animal products' in their food, but won't disclose which animals are used. So it could be pork, it could be safe, but I won't bet his health on it. He stole a sample pack of Trovet renal diet, and got very sick (vomiting, diarrhea, incontinence). Had to get him back to vet again, because now he also didn't want to eat anything.

I did find a brand without pork, but it uses milk. Adult cats are by default lactose intolerant, and Tommie is very lactose intolerant. So, that's a no-go, too.


I tried for years to get him to eat BARF, but he refuses it and prefers his kibble (Applaws, 80% meat, no grains) and canned food (Feringa, 96% meat and organs, no grains), the closest I can get to BARF with him.


So, my question to you, fellow GetBigger and animal lover: do you know a brand of renal diet for cats, that does not contain any traces of pork and/or milk?

I know nothing about cat foods, but check out the Whole Dog Journal's Top 10 food lists (put out yearly).  They have strict guidelines for making the list.  Many of those same manufacturers also make cat food.  My dogs get Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul.  I think they make a Cat Lover's too.

~btw  Hills is one of the worst diets out there and most vets don't realize it.  Like human doctors, vets don't get much in the way of nutritional training.  Hills great marketing strategy is to provide FREE food to the vet schools, so that's what they end up brainwashed with.  Then, Hills give them HUGE kickbacks for selling their product in their clinics, so that's why vets push it.   Roll Eyes

2010 Approved Foods - Dry

WDJ’s Selection Criteria for DRY Food

•NOTE For 2010: Blue Buffalo is back on the list after agreeing to list who and where the food is made. Eagle Pack Holistic and Wellness dog foods were acquired by WellPet - which is owned by Berwind Corp. ( http://www.berwind.com/companies.htm ).

• New addition for 2008 is transparency. For the first time, this year we required each company who, in the past, had a product on our "approved dry dog food" list to divulge, for publication, information about their manufacturing sites. Nine companies either refused to tell us or there was no response to our inquiry. Those 9 have been REMOVED from our current approved list of dry foods. NOTE: several of the companies have since given this information and have been returned to the list of approved foods.


Dry Food REMOVED from Approved List

• Azmira Holistic Animal Care (Tucson, AZ) - Refused to discuss maker of food
• Cloud Star Corporation (San Luis Obispo, CA) - Refused to disclose manufacturing location.
• Newman's Own Organics(Aptos, CA) - Refused to disclose manufacturing location
• Owen & Mandeville Pet Products (Oxford, CT) - No response to either phone or e-mails
• Royal Canin USA, Inc. (St. Charles, MO) - No response to our inquiry
• Timberwolf Organics, Inc. (Winderwere, FL) - No response to our inquiry
• (Evolve) Triumph Pet Industries, Inc. (Warwick, NY) - No response to our inquiry



• We look for foods that contain a lot of high-quality animal proteins. We’d love manufacturers to disclose the percentage of meat, poultry, or fish in their food, but they rarely do, so we look for foods that appear to have lots of animal protein. Ingredients are listed by weight, so ideally a food will have one or two animal proteins in the first few ingredients.
Understand that whole meat (chicken, beef, lamb, etc.) contains a lot of water weight. If a food list starts out with chicken (rather than chicken meal), and there is no other animal protein listed until 7th or 8th on the list, the food does not actually contain a lot of animal protein. But if it starts out with chicken, and chicken meal (or another named animal meal, such as lamb meal) is number two or three on the list, chances are the product contains an admirable amount of animal protein. Animal proteins tend to be more palatable and bio available than plant proteins and offer a wider array of essential and nonessential amino acids.

• We reject any food containing meat by-products or poultry by-products. It’s just about impossible to ascertain the quality of by-products used by a food manufacturer. We’ve spoken to representatives who swore they used only the finest sources of by-products, but when asked, they all say that! The fact is, there is a much wider range of quality in the by-products available for pet food manufacturing than there is for whole meats. Whole meats are expensive, and because they are expensive, dog food makers insist on their quality to an extent that is unreasonable when buying bargain-basement by-products. So we advise that you just avoid foods that contain by-products.

• We reject foods containing fat or protein not identified by species. “Animal fat” is a euphemism for a low-quality, low-priced mix of fats of uncertain origin. “Meat meal” could be practically anything.

• We look for whole grains and vegetables. That said, some grains and vegetables have valuable constituents that accomplish specific tasks in a dog food formula. We don’t get too excited about one vegetable fragment and one grain byproduct on the ingredients panel. Our tolerance diminishes in direct proportion to the number of fragments and by-products contained in a food and the prominence on a label; the more there are, and/or the higher they appear on the ingredients list, the lower-quality the food.

• We eliminate all foods with artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives listed on their ingredients panels. A healthy product full of top-quality ingredients shouldn’t need non-nutritive additives to make it look or taste better. And plenty of good natural preservatives (such as rosemary, and vitamins A and C) can be used instead.

• We eliminate all foods with added sweeteners. Dogs, like people, enjoy sweet foods. Like people, they can develop a taste for these nutritionally empty calories.

• We look for products containing organic ingredients. That’s a no-brainer.

As always with these kinds of animal abuse, I wonder: How did you come up with this? Why did you think it was a good idea?

See my first line.

I'm not a fan of the 'possum by any means.  They're nasty looking ~ like big rats and they carry diseases (in their poop), one that can kill horses, but terrorizing any creature is inhumane.

We started her on Doxycycline yesterday and hope this will solve it.  If not, then the next course of action will not be a good one.  Undecided

So sorry to hear this. I hope she's better soon.  Have you had blood tests done? What were/are her symptoms?  Assuming you do something like a Frontline on a monthly basis, why then would a tick be able to bite and infect?  Isn't that the point if it  Huh  Being a broad spectrum antibiotic suppressing the immune system and causing potential gastrointestinal problems, are you also giving probiotics or anything else?
