I must've missed something... but I went back and re-read... I can't find where anyone said cats won't drink milk if its offered. I just read that they shouldn't drink milk since they're lactose intolerant.CatAholic said:Forgot to mention this.... Cats DO drink milk if given it after being weaned and cats Do drink the species of bovines (cows) milk. So you see it is not just humans. Gonna have some with my cookies now
Milk does good for children. Adult humans have no need to drink milk. In parts of the world that it's not "culture" to drink milk, people are lactose intolerant. The Ph-value in milk is not appropriate for human consumtion. Recent studies show that milk actuarally can cause osteoporosis. This can happen because the Ph-value is so low that the body needs calcium to neutralize it and the body pulls the calcium FROM the skeleton which can cause defienency in calcium.CatAholic said:I disagree. Milk does a body good ! Humans are VERY different in most ways from other species that was God's purpose(sorry I completely throw out the silly evolution theory :lol: )My opinion. Their is Dairy Cattle and there is Beef cattle. Dairy cattle DO NOT end up as a fast food burger, Beef cattle do. (I think they are made of soy aren't they? :lol:
But all kidding aside I am a member of the American Angus Association and raise Black Angus. I have never raised cattle until 4 years ago. There is NOT a cruel bone in my body. I realized I am a better zookeeper than a farmer though. Can't get myself to sell them, my husband is okay with that and we have never eaten anyone of our cows. Fine for those that chose to. But I would certainly not begin to in anyway call these these farmers who are a small part of the beef industry, cruel. Our neighboring farmers, 50-200 head farms, during calving season they get up for several months straight, each night to check and watch and wait for their pregnant cows to give birth, each one, should a calf need to be pulled and they do cry when they can't save one, I have seen it. Grown men farming all there life and they still cry. Never before have I met a kinder, gentler more nurturing group of people, who love the soil, and LOVE animals. It is there LIFE, they have to love it they sure aren't getting rich out of it.They don't let them just go it alone in a field somewhere. I agree there is bad in all professions. Trust me if you have never been around farming ( I was a citygirl til 4 yrs ago) it would give you a whole different perspective. To make a a judgement say all Dr.s are bad, well now come on they have been responsible for some patience dying, what a cruel industry. I truly am not a big meat either, I perfer chix and fish, I wear leather shoes and I also believe that animals have saved the lifes of many HUMANS through their contribution in science. God created them, without souls and they are irriational creatures that God created for mans pleasure and enjoyment solely(I have ONE book that can support this completely) Perhaps when I took my name "CatAholic" I took the wrong name. I would hope to never resemble someone who is fanatic. I Love my cats but there are definitely more important things in my life then them. I have been blessed with them to love and they ARE Loved. Balance, not extremes.
