Ok, the other day I was looking in the cupboard here at C's place for a Motrin, when I found this bottle marked Pet Relaxant. Hmmm, thinks I, the Kitties-O-The-Apocalypse tend to freak out mightily whenever a car trip becomes necessary, and the vet supplied tranqs lean toward the expensive. Mayhap an OTC remedy herein rests. So I further perused the bottle. It contains valarian root, chamomile, kava kava, and St. John's wort. Alas, thought I, snake oil. But then I got to the most amusing part of the label. In a grand gesture to misplaced tree-hugging Green Party political correctness, this bottle of pet tranquilizers bears the legend, "NO ANIMAL TESTING".

Have a great 4th, kiddies!!
