“Abandoning an animal is a crime and very cruel,” spcaLA president Madeline Bernstein told KABC. “The kitten could have easily died inside the mailbox.”

Veterinary staff at the shelter jumped into action to get Brett well. He was put into foster care where he was bottle-fed until he could eat on his own. 

Now 2 months old, Brett is ready for adoption. He was socialized through the shelter’s HEAL Program.

Adoptions at scpaLA are on a first come, first served basis. More information is available at the spcaLA website.

Walmart changes opioid policy, limits first-time prescription fills to 7 days or fewer

Walmart is taking a step to try to help stop the abuse and misuse of opioids.

Walmart and Sam’s Club pharmacies in the United States, including Puerto Rico, will now limit how many pills are dispensed, Fortune reported.

Over the next two months, the stores will limit the first acute opioid prescriptions to a seven-day supply and a per-day maximum of a 50 milligrams of morphine equivalent, company officials said in a news release.

By Jan. 1, 2020, the stores will require e-prescriptions for controlled substances instead of a traditional paper copy because, Walmart officials said, “they cannot be altered or copied and are electronically trackable.”

Pharmacists will also use the controlled substance tracking program, NarxCare, by the end of August and will have a supply of naloxone at all pharmacy counters for by-request dispensing where allowed by state law. 

The changes are part of the “Walmart Opioid Stewardship Initiative” and were developed to help combat the nation’s opioid epidemic.

Gold hot wings offered at NYC eatery

You have your mild, hot, extra hot and even Armageddon-melt-your-face-off varieties of hot wings; but how about the bar staple dusted in gold?

Two New York City restaurants are offering the decadent dinner. 

They’re called Foodgod 24 Karat wings and are being served at two locations of The Ainsworth: one in Chelsea and one in the East Village, the New York Daily News reported

The wings are a collaboration between the restaurant and Jonathan Cheban. 

You may know his name from “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” the Daily News reported. He calls himself Foodgod now.

Foodgod’s recipe starts with the wings being soaked in coconut butter, gold butter, chipotle and honey batter for 24 hours. They’re served dusted with real gold flakes with a side of gourmet dipping blue cheese.

Is ‘hangry’ a real emotion? Scientist says yes

You know the commercials from Snickers - the ones with stars standing in for everyday people with the tag line that you’re not yourself when you’re hungry.

Most of the spots deal with the feeling of being hangry - or so hungry that you’re actually angry.

But the feeling isn’t just a hook to sell candy bars. One scientist claims it is real.

“We’ve long recognized in science that hunger leads to irritability. But the wonderful world of social media has merged the two words for us and now we know it as ‘hanger,’” Sophie Medlin told the BBC.

Medlin is a lecturer studying nutrition and dietetics at Kings College London. 

She explained what hangry really means.

>> Read more trending news 

“When our blood sugars drop, cortisol and adrenaline rise up in our bodies -- our fight or flight hormones,” Medlin told the BBC.

Also the chemicals that control our brain, called neuropeptides, not only trigger hunger, but also trigger anger and impulsive behaviors. Medlin says they’re all connected.

So how can we keep being hangry at bay?

“It depends on how long it’s going to be until your next meal. Ideally, you want something that’s going to bring your blood sugars up a little bit and also maintain them there. So a sort of savory carbohydrate-type snack would be the best thing to have,” Medlin told the BBC.
