Cats + chemistry puns = internet gold? You be the judge.
You simply don’t find lolcats amusing anymore? And are you even remotely good at chemistry by any chance? Then this meme is for you. Chemistry Cat is probably the funniest thing that’s happened to the science of matter in its entire pokerfaced history.
Ever wonder what are the normal values for blood chemistry elements for dogs (and cats)? Well, actually "normal" is quite relative. Each veterinary diagnostic lab and "in clinic" laboratory equipment will have its own "normal values" calibrated to standards, so variations in what are called "normal values" should be expected.
Here’s the weekly summary of both new chemistry research and studies that have been in the news. This week features research on why cats respond differently to bitter tastes, how indium can be recovered from touch screens, and more. As always, links to further articles and original research papers are provided below, as well as further studies of interest not included in the graphic.I shared it on the wall of a 9000-member Facebook group of fellow cat lovers. The response was extremely positive, and someone even requested to purchase it. Chemistry Cats had come into being! In the next two weeks, I sold a few more original pieces on Etsy, and then branched into portrait commissions in November. That became the sweet way to honor people’s connection with their animals that I was looking for.From the upcoming Crash Course On Stereochemistry,
Full mini-course includes the 61 minute presentation "Everything I Know About Stereochemistry I Learned From Cats", along with dozens of solved practice exam-type problems (with video solutions - over 4 hours of video in total).The reference intervals provided by our laboratory were established in our laboratory from healthy animals, using our own equipment with specific methods and reagents. Because results are analyzer-, method- and reagent- dependent, these intervals are only valid for results from our laboratory. We have reference intervals for hematology and chemistry for dogs, cats, horses, cattle, goats and alpacas. We have blood gas and electrolyte ranges for dogs, cats, horses and cattle only. For species without established reference intervals, you should refer to general publications and textbooks as a guideline only. With many of our tests, (eg, immunology) we use the manufactures' intervals, or do not provide intervals, however, we usually provide guidelines for interpretation. Chemistry Cats is dedicated to the memory of Milo, a.k.a, Milagro, May 5, 1999–December 1, 2014. His lifespan happens to coincide closely with the period that I wasn’t honoring or sharing my gifts as an artist. Perhaps he was here to carry me through it, in a way.The blood chemistry panel is a vital tool in the diagnosis of cat and dog diseases. An important part of a thorough evaluation, most animal hospitals have provisions pertaining to evaluating blood chemistry values for cats and dogs possibly either on site or by use of a local veterinary diagnostic laboratory. Newer instrumentation and processes for evaluating blood chemistry make the use of the information gained at a blood chemistry panel a standard of practice.
