Turkey Scare

  realist 12:41 10 Feb 2007

Oh dear, I shall no longer be buying Bernard Matthews Norfolk (Hungarian?) Turkey Slices for my cat.....

Why? As long as you handle it with rubber gloves with a face mask on and cook it at 1000 degrees celcius it'll be fine. The FSA says it is.

whey not as long as the cat lives youll be safe
any way all produced meat will be ok if its/you cook it as this will kill any infection

If you eat turkey twizzlers and chips I think you'll be dying sooner than the rest of us ;-)

Anyone eating that reconstituted muck was in much more danger before the Bird Flu fiasco. The force-fed and force aged battery Turkeys used bear little resemblance to 'real' Turkeys and cannot even mate. Any Bird Flu (if there was any) would have been killed by the processing and cooking at low temps will also kill it. Storm+in+a+teacup.

is no more likely to contract bird flu by eating Hungarian turkey than you are, and you can't catch it by eating cooked meat. Cats can be infected, but only in the same way as humans - by coming into contact with live infected birds or their faeces. As yet here are no recorded cases of cats passing the virus to other cats.

It's been said a million times, and I wonder why some people don't seem to have got the message.

I know, I know, I know....!

My post was intended to be sort of light-hearted and tongue-in-cheek.

Maisie Belle is however rather partial to those turkey slices which we are in the habit of buying just for her..........purrrrrr

I'm sorry, I missed the tongue in the cheek.

I'm suffering from a slight sense of humour lapse today, due entirely to the man who parked across my driveway entrance overnight. We couldn't get our cars out this morning, and my wife was due in a clinic, where she had a 17-patient list awaiting her. As you can imagine, we were a tad irrtitated, and when the driver appeared at 10:30 and said 'Sorry mate, I had a few last night, and when I hit the post I thought I had better cab it home' my blood pressure rocketed. I hadn't noticed my broken gatepost.

My apologies for overreacting to turkey slices and cats.
