I went to Simon Singh's article in the Guardian. His assumption is that homeopathy cannot work on a cat- because the cat "knows" that it is receiving a treatment and hence is subject to the placebo effect. What a CROCK. Sorry to hurt your feelings everybody- but cats, dogs, armadillo's etc. CANNOT THINK.
Animals have no clue that there is a "tomorrow." Yes- all animals can be conditioned. My cat screams his ass off- "I'm hungry." I feed the cat- he eats, craps and goes to sleep. If he is sick and I put a homeopathic remedy in his water- he DOES NOT KNOW HE IS BEING "TREATED." Dr. Singh perhaps thinks that my cat is his re-incarnated uncle- sorry- he's a damn cat.
If I give him a remedy and he gets better-- it was no placebo effect-- it was homeopathy!
