Ok. Since the inception of this site, I’ve been getting the same question: “What the hell is Sickly Cat?”
My friend, Jason Burkley (aka Pretty J) almost consistently refers to the site as “Sick Kitty” which kinda sounds like a porn site… which (by the way) it IS NOT, internet spiders!
So from this point forward, I will forward this link to anyone who ask the reason for the name “Sickly Cat”. Please feel free to do the same.
Why Sickly Cat?:
From 1932 to 1942, Dr. Francis Marion Pottenger, Jr. conducted an experiment to determine the effects of heat-processed food on cats. The experiment included 900 cats over four generations. The cats were divided into two groups. One group was fed whole foods such as raw milk and meat to simulate their eating habits in their natural habitat. The other group was given processed foods and pasteurized, evaporated and condensed milk.
All four generations of the raw meat and raw milk group remained healthy throughout their normal lifespan. The first generation of the processed food group developed diseases and illnesses near the end of their lives. The second generation of the processed food group developed diseases and illnesses in the middle of their lives and developed deformities such as narrowed faces, frail bones, crowded and recessed jaws, and weakened ligaments. The third generation of the processed food group developed diseases and illnesses in the beginning of their lives and many died before six months of age. There was no fourth generation in the processed food group. Either the third generation cats were sterile or the fourth generation died before birth.
Likewise, we humans have been fed a robust diet of lies and misinformation processed by corporate and political interests. We have regurgitated this information to our friends and family and have created generations of people suffering from mental malnutrition – the Sickly Cat Syndrome.
What’s funny is that my wife (the one who exposed me to Dr. Pottenger’s study) regularly refers to people with recessed chins as having Sickly Cat Syndrome. Her funniest example of this is Lil Wayne. Judging by his rhymes (before Drake started writing them all) and his recessed chin, he probably is the best example… but I digress.
SicklyCat.com looks to combat the Sickly Cat Syndrome by delivering organic content that is free of poisonous corporate and political influence. SicklyCat.com primarily delivers its organic content in two ways. The first of which is through relevant & timely articles written by bloggers and journalists from across the country with various political and sociological backgrounds.
The second method of content delivery is through the SicklyCat Network. The network produces a variety of talk shows that showcase our unique brand of intelligent yet humorous infotainment.
Now that you know the etymology of the term ”Sickly Cat”, please feel free to join us on this journey to find the truth lost among the sea of misinformation.
