Hi everybody - I'm Darby and my favorite toy is a ribbon! Since it is a rainy day again I am going to play all day.. I like to run around the house with it in my mouth, wrestle with it and bat it around.
Boy I'm pooped from all that playing. Think I'll take a nap! Have a fun weekend!!!

Some Nutro pet foods have been voluntarily recalled due to contamination. The brands recalled are Nutro Natural Choice Complete Care and Nutro Max - both dry foods for cats. None of the dry or canned dog food are affected nor the canned cat food. This Press release was issued by Nutro:
Today, Nutro Products announced a voluntary recall of select varieties of NUTRO® NATURAL CHOICE® COMPLETE CARE® Dry Cat Foods and NUTRO® MAX® Cat Dry Foods with “Best If Used By Dates” between May 12, 2010 and August 22, 2010. The cat food is being voluntarily recalled in the United States and ten additional countries. This recall is due to incorrect levels of zinc and potassium in our finished product resulting from a production error by a US-based premix supplier.
Two mineral premixes were affected. One premix contained excessive levels of zinc and under-supplemented potassium. The second premix under-supplemented potassium. Both zinc and potassium are essential nutrients for cats and are added as nutritional supplements to NUTRO® dry cat food.
This issue was identified during an audit of our documentation from the supplier. An extensive review confirmed that only these two premixes were affected. This recall does not affect any NUTRO® dog food products, wet dog or cat food, or dog and cat treats.
Go to the following web sites to check out which ones were recalled and why.

Mom has a big dilemma in our shelter - Albert the white deaf cat is picking on poor Woody, a sweet tabby boy. Woody is very submissive and hides or runs from Al. Al does not know how to socialize with us other cats - he was probably taken from his mom and siblings too soon. We don't know anything about his early weeks. He seems to pick out the most timid ones and stalks them like prey!!! Things have heated up a bit between him and Woody.
Anyway Woody is hiding under or behind a chair all the time. Mom makes sure he gets love and food but what kind of life is this? He does love his brothers Norm and Sam and likes to be with them and Snowball. We can bring him inside the house but the cats in there don't know Woody and he may hide under something in the house too -and Mom won't be able to find him!!!! What to do???
On the other hand, Woody may like being in the house - he has never been in one before and may make friends with the other kitties and have a fun time. We have to ponder this - any suggestions or ideas are welcome.
