For nearly 10 months in 2002 and early 2003, a PETA investigator went undercover at an Iams contract testing laboratory, where a dark, sordid secret was discovered beneath the the dog- and cat-food manufacturer’s wholesome image. Our investigator found dogs who had gone crazy from intense confinement in barren steel cages and cement cells, dogs who had been left on a filthy paint-chipped floor after chunks of muscle had been hacked from their thighs, dogs who had been surgically debarked, and horribly sick dogs and cats who were languishing in their cages, neglected and left to suffer without veterinary care.
Here are some animals they saw that were harmed:
Suffering from acute hair loss and a mammary tumor, Menu Foods dog HJDMFT seeks the attention of our investigator. HJDMFT, who was killed on September 26, 2002, remained untreated in her cage for 42 days prior to death despite the fact that her condition had steadily worsened (i.e., there was increased hair loss, the tumor was hot to the touch, she cried when handled, etc.)
On July 9, 2002, a Menu Foods dog was found in her cage with large, swollen, open wounds on both her hind legs. The wounds, which were the result of her having gotten stuck in the flooring of her cage, were so severe that the bone on one leg was exposed. The wounds were washed and shaved and the dog was placed back in her cage, but she received no painkillers.
On July 15, 2002, the same dog still in pain and her wounds looking worse than they did the week before, it was decided that she would be killed. Her fate amused many of the laboratory personnel who joked that since she was going to be killed, they might as well make some money off her by selling her cerebral spinal fluid and bile to a bioreclamation firm.
Mommy made me and my sibling we won't buy while cats and dogs die pictures. Were going to put them on our page soon. We also made ones without names on them that we'll display on my sister Baileys page. With the blank name one I encourage everyone to write there name on it and put it on there page. I also encourage everyone to stop buying Iams food!
Most of this information I copied off of a website.

Here is what you can do to help: http://www.iamscruelty.com/menuwycd.asp
The above link encourages you to write them. Even sending them those flyers should do the trick! This isn't fair! These animals did nothing to deserve this!

Say you'll marry me!!

I was about 1 and a half years old when mommy decided it was time to get another cat. His name was Pepper. And even I Willie will admit that he was pretty cute! When most cats are meeting another cat for the first time they often hiss because they are afraid the other cat will get all of the attention. But I didn't hiss. And I sure got alot of attention for that! I felt alittle uncomfortable around him at first, but after about 3 days we got along great! He was my best friend. We did everything together. We slept on mommys bed together, we chased each other around the house, it was great! Aunt Valerie (mommys sister) currently had her room under cunstruction. So because if that there was a matress and a table top leaning against the wall. But since Pepper was only 5 months old, he still had his claws in. So he climbed up the mattress, just than, it fell down. Mommy, Valerie, and grandma were very scared. And so was I. So mommy called the vet to see what time the vet opened at. It didn't open for another hour. But someone told mommy how to keep him alive on the mean time. We eventually took him to the vet. About 3 days later, we found out he had died. He had lost alot of blood and his breathing had been slowed down a great deal. The next day mommy got a new cat. This time I did hiss because I still wasn't over Pepper. It took me a whole month to get used to the new cat Ajax. But he is now my best friend. I still miss pepper terribly. But I enjoy my new friend a great deal!
