    My cat was sick and we couldn’t determine why, a thousand dollars later and a week in the hospital, my cat is home but worse-we bought grillers purina at several stores in illinois and stocked up so he used it through the summer and fall and now his mystery illness is killing him. My son and him are best friends, my son is 3yrs old and cannot speak. But he learned to say daddy, mama, and droopy the cats name. Droopy helps him learn new words by being there to play with him-he falls asleep wherever my son is-he follows him everywhere from the moment my son was born. He lives to play with my son, chase his cars, ride in his wagon, and yes play with my son with the dog. My sons whole world is now complicated by this recall. My pets, no our family member, is suffering-he is family, he loves us all and we love him! We need to do something to protect our most innocent, and valuable asset. A speech therapist couldn’t give my son the confidence to try to talk that droopy has somehow offered. My son now knows the word hospital-he can sign it and sound it out under his breath. Droopy in hospital! We need to take some action. We need to save our pet. Droopy represents many who cannot speak but need a voice. He listened, now he lays on the floor upset, listless and wanting help-our vet working tirelessly to combat the kidney infection, bladder infections, and all of his other pains and side effects of a food that was supposed to make our droopy healthy and keep him safe.
