No Corners Cut In This Tiny House by Driftwood Tiny Homes USA

Driftwood Tiny Homes USA out of South Carolina recently finished their 2nd tiny house dubbed “The Indigo.” What’s unique about this tiny house is that is has a master bedroom downstairs as well as a huge loft above.

Is Pet Food Safe for Humans to Eat?

Nearly 80 million American households have a pet, with a majority being a cat or dog. Additionally, 42% of homes have more than one pet. A lot of food is needed to feed all of these animals, so it should come as no surprise that pet food is a 21 billion dollar industry. While this food is specially made for our four-legged pals, the question many have (including this researcher) is- in a post-apocalyptic world where human food was scarce, could I eat my cat’s wet food? Would I get sick from eating my dog’s milk bones? If you like this video, like us on facebook and twitter.
