Chances are you are feeding your cat junk food.  I'm sure it's not intentional.  Maybe you don't know that the dry foods with the fish shapes and bright colors are like cocaine to your cat.  A few bites of his cat kibble will make his blood sugar jump sky high, because he does not have the enzymes necessary to digest starch.  It's BAD for him, and it causes all kinds of illnesses, long term.

This is the kind of story that urban legends are made of -- and yet having been picked up by major media outlets
-- it appears to be true. One very loyal German Shepherd by the name of
Capitán won't allow even death to separate him from his master.  Seven
years ago, when Miguel Guzmán died in 2007, his dog was not only able to
seek out his cemetery, but he also sleeps on top his grave stone
nightly.
