My mom asked about her cat

By Dr. Andrew Jones

Hello to you and yours this sunny Tuesday morning.

I am back from a week away on vacation – and it was nice to have a break.

I got a short visit in with my younger brother, along with spending some time with my mother.

Unfortunately she has some dementia setting in, but overall the visit was good. It’s hard to see a parent getting old, especially in an extended care home with some seriously ill people.

It does make me appreciate my health, my family, and make a point to live a little more in the present, kind of like my dogs and cats 🙂

My mom did ask one thing more than a few times:

“How is Gussie?”

Gussie was her cat and last lived with her 8 years ago prior to her going into a home. Gussie was then living with my father, until his death a few months ago, and she now lives with me.

And HOW is Gussie?

Well great!

She gets a tonne more attention, is far MORE active, and has lost weight.

My mom was MORE than happy to hear that.

It is a testament of the power and impression of our pets – my mom can’t remember many names, has events confused, but is CLEAR in remembering her cat.

And I was happy to tell her that Gussie is doing well.


P.S. Gussie didn’t just magically transform from an overweight, poor hair coated, inactive cat to her new slim and sleek shape.

I started her on my new Cat Supplement, and it has done wonders for her.

She was also fairly stiff with Arthritis, and I have seen some marked improvement- she now hops up on the counter, and seldom limps.

The supplement is now on sale for a 50% OFF trial here:


And the change isn’t just in Gussie. My dad’s dog Jessie, is now my dog. He definitely had pain from Arthritis, and my Dog Supplement has done wonders for him. The biggest change is that he in more comfortable, and is happier.

My Dog Supplement is also on Sale for a 50% OFF trial:

    I have owned several dogs for years. I have always enjoyed sharing the various snacks I enjoy eating while hanging out around the house. I recently lost one of my dear friends and the vet indicated his diet was most likely the primary cause, in other words my constant sharing of my poor diet. So here I am cruising the net looking for quality supplements and info on dog health. I am commenting every now and then hoping to connect with other owners on the same journey. I recently discovered another site similar to this one http://www.vitahound.com, the site provided an in depth forum on dog health. I’m hoping this sites readers may have some helpful suggestions. Need to go Dallas just jumped up on the couch with me.

    Hi Dr,
    Thanks for all the wonderful work you share with us. Ive tried your complete dog supplement and must say it was very good. Sadly, when converting to our local rupee its way beyound my affordability to continue with it regularly!!!
    I love the Homeopathic treatment you constantly talk about cos we’ve been giving it to our babies for years with much relief!!
    would honestly love to own your course, so I will make my best guess. failing which I hope that id be able to Buy it at 75% off atleast!!
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY and Thank you soooo much for all you shre with us.
    You”ll be 45 on Aug 28th

    I sure hope Im correct!!!
