To all kitties and woofies: Please remember to skip the turkey skin, mashed potatoes, gravy, chocolate, desserts, and apertifs. You can, however, eat a little white meat from the turkey and all the unbuttered, unseasoned cooked veggies you want.
We know you have been drooling for some time now at the thought of having your own Thanksgiving spread just like your family's. But it's your job to make sure you eat right, even if your family and staff try to entice you with foods that can cause gastric upset, diarrhea, choking, pancreatitis or any other emergency health situation. It might smell good. Might even taste yummy. But if it isn't on your list of approved safe foods, just pull the finicky act and walk away.
Remember, even though your family has your best interest at heart, they don't always understand what is best for you to eat. And when faced with temptation, it's too easy to succumb. You don't want to be sick - or, gasp, worse! - so eat smart and stay healthy.
A Happy Thanksgiving to all!
