Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 2, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ask Andy Dogs or cats? Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Terry Kent, age 9, of Rochester, New York, for his question: Did pet dogs or pet cajs come first? Neighborhood cats and dogs often carry on bke mortal ene- mies. Naturally we try to keep the peace by teaching them po- lite manners and respect for each other. On the home front, our good example works like a charm and as a rule the family cat and dog love each o'her. This makes us wonder why strange cats and dogs usu- ally behave like hostile sav- ages. Perhaps the misunder- standing goes back to the very first pets Wild cats and dogs arrived millions of years before the first human families. They were fierce and hungry meat-eaters and sometimes they hunted the same food. Often they fought each other and the strongest dog or cat grabbed most of the banquet Wild cats and dogs stilll compete for food, but the battles are soon settled and for- gotten. On the home front, things are very different We serve suit- able diets to our pet cats and dcgs and few of them go hun- gry. Certainly there is no need to fight to steal food from each other In the family, they usu- ally get along just fine. But when they catch a glimpse of the neighborhood cats and dogs, our peaceable pets sometimes turn into shrieking savages. Some experts claim that cats and dogs were natural enemies. It is true that in the wild they often fight to grab each other's food. But between meals they tend to .ignore each Most likely they never did hate each other like born ene- mies. It seems very odd that our civilized pets fight "like cats and dogs." Maybe their quick fear and anger flare up because they are jealous of each other. i The story began more than 20 thousand years ago, when our caveman ancestors and the wolfish wild dogs began to no- tice each other. The Stone Age folk of years ago teamed up with half-wild dogs. After a hunt together, the dogs were happy to get juicy hunks of de- licious cooked meats. Small wild cats also hovered near the campfire, hoping for handouts. Maybe the proud dogs felt jealous and tried to drive them away, maybe this started the ancient cat-acd-dog hostili- ties. When a Stone Age family moved, the dogs went along and the cats followed from a safe distance. Gradually the dog became a trusted worker and learned his place in the human family. Gradually the little cat grew braver and fell head-over- heels in love with ihe human children No doubt the dog was man's first animal friend. But without doubt, the first true pet of the human family was the furry-little, purry-little cat. The dog was adopted about years ago and gradually trained to work as a hunter and guardian. But the little cat refused to be trained for duty or even to obey orders. Yet the family enjoyed her furry af- fection. They liked her to sleep by the fire because she added a touch of comfort and content- ment to the home. In time, the family learned to love her for herself along, just as a pet. More than years ago, she was adopted in Egypt as the first true pet of the human family. At that time, the dogs had been man's hard-working partners for about years. Perhaps the arrival of pamper- ed pets made them fiercely jealous and perhaps the adopted cats felt fearful. Qnestions asked by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Bos 765.

The tt clear ttat ptrtaer b very short Dear Dr. Lamb I read your column daily with much interest. You've answered a great number of questions that have arisen in my mind. I am a supervisor of a region for a national weight-losing organiza- tion. Naturally I'm interested in any articles I find on weight. Recently there has been an in- crease in this area of doctors who limit their practice to weight control. In most in- stances they give their patients shots The patients have told me that it is a hormone from the unne of a pregnant wo- man. The patients are also put on low calorie diets. I'm asked about this practice by members of our weight-los- ing club and since I nave no medical knowledge except what I read I can in no way an- swer these people. Can you help me? I would be so grateful. Dear Reader First let me say that I'm familiar with the purposes and activities of the organization that you repre- sent. I know that this organiza- tion has done an excellent job and has helped a lot of people lose weight successfully. In so doing they have helped a lot of people to improve tneir health status. Yes, one hormone that is sometimes used is from preg- nant urine. It has some actions similar to hormones from the pituitary gland It is thought to help mobiliez fat stores in the body. I am not enthusiastic about administering hormones for Fun with figures By J. A. H. HUNTER "I've got onl> dimes and pen- said Jack. "You've got three dimes yourself." "Sure, but the rest is all pen- Jill told him "Give me half jour dimes, and I'll give you half my pennies. Then we'll be all square." How many pennies did Jack have? (Answer tomorrow) Friday's answer: 1309 Mr. Hunter answers afl tetters: ideas welcomed. weight control unless there 1s definite medical evidence of a hormone imbalance. One can take excessive amounts of thy- roid hormones to the point thai they have toxic reactions and this can help to cause weight reduction but it is not a desir able practice. Most patients who are overweight have no medical indication that war rants giving any additional medicines. Many drugs have been used to curb the appetite and it is now becoming more generally accepted that, even though these have been prescribed by physicians, they are of very little use in helping patients lose weight. In some instances they curb the appetite but the final result in weight loss is the amount of calories consum- ed related to the amount of cal- ories used from daily activity. Another advantage to learn- ing to alter one's eating habits and exercise habits so that obesity is eliminated is that this is also the route to pre- venting its recurrence without becoming dependent on fad diets and gimmicks. Prevention of obesity is a lifetime effort which involves really a much better knowledge of nutrition khan most of our people seem to have, combined with apply- ing these principles, and then remaining physically active. Mcst people don't really ap- preciate how many additional calories they are adding to their diet by .the addition of even small amounts of sweets and fats for seasoning and cooking purposes. If the vast majority of people would sharp- ly curtail their excess use of Fats and sweets in the diet and foods which contain large amounts of fats and sweets, then combine this with ade- quate amounts of physical ac- tivity regularly, not just as a sporadic crash effort, there would be a lot fewer people who have any problems of obesity.
