Animal Rights…

Jadzia puked up a giant amount of thick Whiskas dry & canned food filled peanut butter-like paste just orange with bits of

fur & pieces of shaped cooked prepared commercial food,

all over the book that sat on my bedside table,

because I kept putting it down every time the author mentioned another Clinical trial where animals were involved…

So I had left it there, waiting perhaps a month in between short bursts of reading,

to soothe my pissed off mind,

each time a success story followed some cruel trick,

on animals that were rather highly capable mentally,

like an ape…

Her vomit covered over the name of the author (Dr. Norman Doidge, M.D.) & oozed backwards over the commentary the

publisher had written at the top mentioning a previous bestselling New York Times book by the same author

(The brain that changes)…

The surprise of the sudden outpouring of regurgitation was a cause for pause…

or a cause for Paws, as some would say…

When I evaluated Jadzia’s work

(Jadzia is a bengal cat, intact with her ovaries untouched by scalpel, snow leopard class gold

type in the

F6 domestic hybrid class, registered as being born April 16, 2005)

, ( as is her roommate also intact, B’elanna born

Dec. 1, 2004,

a snow leopard class silver type bengal cat)…

When I evaluated the choice of locations of where this smart cat had chosen to regurgitate a cheap & fast food type possibly

high in all the wrong things but tastes so good, ’cause Whiskas knows cats(it is really hard to resist & they had been eating

“health” food for so long Joseph, my benevolent husband, took it upon himself to release them from the health nut furor…

I applauded her decision, & was delighted & just so proud as any cat mother might be…

B’Elanna seconded the excellent location scouting & of course the quantity of grossness that emanated from our precious

little spotted cat’s mouth…

I promised myself I would write about this event, & this is that…

The book is called The Brain’s Way of Healing & looks at Neuroplasticity…

Dr. Doidge would be delighted to know that cats can now read, & are up to date on current use of apes & other species in

Clinical Trials in the field of cognitive & behavioural aspects of neurosurgery…

On page 12 when the clinician amputates the third finger of the ape in order to discover something that most commonfolk

already knew, that everything, even the brain grows back eventually…

I should have vomited as well, at Indigo Chapters, at the book signing, while sitting in a visible row beside Dennis

Kucherawy, a friend of mine & possibly the best writer on the planet, who fell asleep during the interview portion because

he got bored( a euphemism for I had told him about page 12 before the sit down)…

My friend Dennis Kucherawy was hit by a car while crossing Bay street south of Bloor street in Toronto, & as head of

communications for a massive film company, he was slowly, oh so slowly, let go…

Brain damage from getting hit by a car can do that to your job…Lose it…

Yes, unfortunately, large companies, even those run by somewhat artistic peoples, get rid of their own, for becoming

disabled…

So he rehabilitated himself with the money he got after suing them for years, ran a Marine type marathon, picked up his

wife who is becoming a Homeopath now later in life, & writes now with even more flair than before the accident…

You would not know there was any damage unless he told you…

Yes the brain grows back, new neural pathways can be formed, frontal lobe injuries can be reversed, & great people can

return to greatness…

Are there not enough accidents in this world for us to study carefully without having to cause harm on purpose?

(Biography chatter:from my Author Central page on Amazon-Grove Health Science is a series of 12 books now!) Hi...I'm Sari Grove...Sari sounds like Mary...Grove is the last name I took from my husband, 'cause it is a really nice name, & he was very very good looking, & I married him, & my maiden name, the name I grew up with, was "Slatt", which could be turned into all sorts of unfortunate words, which is why when I was looking for a mate, I sought someone with a cool last name...(I cannot tell you how many totally worthy men I had to ignore due to their last names being unmelodic or otherwise unsuitable...) Grove Canada is a pen name, mostly because when I needed a web address, I could not get Grove.com or even grove.ca, so I just got GroveCanada, due to a serious lack of imagination in that moment...It stuck, so I still use it...I thought this time, if I used Grove Canada as a pen name, that maybe you might look up my blog online, at GroveCanada.ca, & enjoy the freshness of getting information from the horse's mouth, up to the minute, rather than the instant obsoleteness that a book creates...Like a car depreciates as soon as you buy it-a book is old as soon as it is published...For a Virgo perfectionist, this inability to easily update, with a new chapter, with new research, causes me constant worrisome self-abnegating, consternation... I use those dot dot dot things, the etcetera symbol, at the end of my sentences, as a habit-you will always know it is me writing, you will always pause at the end of a sentence to think for a moment, you will remember that poetry is beautiful, & you will take everything I say with a giant grain of Pink Himalayan salt(since the grammatical error will irk you into that state of skepticism)! Love & Hugs, Sari ps. I became a Christian at the age of 21, which may seem like a non sequitur, & though my faith is decent my works may not really do justice to that title-but I thought I'd mention it, since my first name Sari always seems to force an assumption about my background-and though you would be right to assume that it tends to be a Jewish name, you might not be right in assuming that that is what I am going to sound like when I expound on some of my karmic principles or other ethical compasses I have developed...Not that I have done away with my past, it is just I have iced the cake with the new updated version-so if you wrong me, I may just turn the other cheek(New), instead of doing the eye for an eye thing back at you!(old)...
