           Welcome
Meet Abby...
Abby
A few weeks ago, we had the chance to cat-sit for a friend. It was my first time in nearly 2 years to have a cat in the house after not having had a pet since my cat, Rogue (who lived to 17 yrs), passed away. Between what I went through when Rogue died, and seeing what Neil went through when he lost his dog, Roxanne, last year, I figured I wouldn't adopt another pet. But having this "guest" kitty in my home for a week made me realize how much I missed the pitter-patter of little paws.

So a week ago, I adopted a new cat from the Humane Society. I've named her Abby (after Abby Sciuto, who she reminds me of.) Abby was an adult cat rescue who was found by police when she was being abused by a group of young boys who had done away with all of her kittens except one. By the time I met Abby, she had been living caged at the shelter for 3 months and 5 days. It seemed that everyone wanted to adopt one of the sweet little kittens that crowded the room, but most of the adult cats (unless they are a special breed) are largely ignored. There was something special about Abby and within a few minutes, I knew she'd be coming to live with me.

If you're considering adopting a pet, I urge you to avoid pet stores (and God forbid Puppy Mills) and adopt your dog or cat from a responsible shelter. Most areas have a large number of shelters with no shortage of animals waiting for good homes. And if possible, consider adopting an adult pet... they have a much harder time finding homes. If you already have a pet, please help control pet overpopulation by spaying or neutering your animal(s).

This issue includes an article about how good pets are for people! In fact, according to The Berlin Longevity Institute, cats can add as much as 10 years to their owners? lives. Picking up a cat has a nearly instantaneous calming effect on humans, causing blood pressure to drop and the heart rate to slow.

Abby loves her new home and is the newest member of the Low Carb Luxury family! (And she's our photo of the month, too! Abby adores Neil and loves to pose.)

TV Fall Previews

This month, we decided that with the anticipation of the new Fall Network TV Shows, it might be a nice idea to offer up the sites showing the Fall Preview Grids. We'll start with the ones from each network, and then there are a number of general-entertainment sites that have done all-inclusive grids that are well done and pretty helpful.

So, start picking out your favorites!



Product Notes...

What a difference a year makes...

More and more companies are abandoning the "low carb" label for their products in favor of one that simply speaks to a healthy lifestyle. Some companies change the product profile as well, but most simply change the name. "Low Glycemic," "Sugar Free," and "Low in Sugar" are among the more popular new naming categories. We noted this week that most Blue Moon Carb Concept pizzas had been replaced on store shelves by Blue Moon Culinary Concepts pizza. By changing their product profile (including going from real mozarella to the 100% fat free kind), they now boast an American Diabtes Association label.
