I actually hesitated to post this one. Not on the grounds of taste; after all, anyone who prods around in other people's faeces for a living in order to make spurious diagnoses and who sells very expensive kits to let people do the same for themselves would hardly balk at doing the same to family pets... and of course, that's what worries me.
Should any of the major players in nutribollocks woo-mongering set eyes on this, they might realise that there's a relatively untapped market out there for animal nutrimysticism, and then no litter tray would be safe and I'd have that on my conscience forever.
Do I really want to be responsible for "You Are What You Eat... And So Is Your Pet!" - where some basket-case with a mail-order PhD tries to persuade a Rottweiler to forego the unhealthy meat-based diet that makes its poo smell so bad in favour of organic lentil and celeriac casserole?
Hmmm... maybe that's not such a bad idea after all.
