How did Beth write a book about Yoda being healed when he was just "healed" last week?

    It seems like the book is all written and printed and ready to go which seems like it would be a lengthy process. Surely the most honest power couple in radio aren't being dishonest?

    For the record, I posted this on 06/30/14:

    Since Howard and Beth lie all the time about the backstories and medical conditions of their pets I doubt that Yoda really has serious heart problems. Either way it's a huge win for Beth and I'm sure that's the real reason she insisted on adopting him. If Yoda drops dead soon she can milk it for sympathy and go on another "Look at MEEEE! I'm grieving!!!" tour like she did with Bianca. If he stays alive she'll take credit for miraculously extending his life beyond what the medical experts (supposedly) said was possible. Either way she gets to pat herself on the back for adopting a "special needs" cat and constantly send out photos on social media. She hit the jackpot with Yoda.

    She probably hired the ghost writer the same day as she got the cat.

    My guess is they originally wanted it to be about Blind Bella, but they realized it would be harder to fake a blind cat miraculously regaining its sight. Then yoda entered the picture. "Fuck it...we'll say he has a heart condition. The vet never said he didn't have a heart condition. Call the ghostwriter!"

    According to Sandra Bernhard: Beth was a well known party girl who was in a constant search for a rich husband...

    If Yoda was emaciated or had underlying health conditions it is *possible* he would present with what would seem to be heart arrhythmia.

    I am not giving them the benefit of the doubt, believe me, but that sort of thing, or if a cat is really stressed out about an exam can give a false positive. (My vet said all docs should know this and re-listen to the heart later in the exam after the cat has relaxed a bit)

    In this case though, I am sure they are just being drama queens, or worse.

    That would be plausible if Howard (the drama queen) hadn't gone into such detail about the severity of Yoda's condition when he first mentioned it on the air. He said the cat only had a few months to live, could drop dead at any moment, and was diagnosed by Long Island Veterinary Specialists who told him Yoda's heart was so damaged he would be on the transplant list if he was a human. Here's an excerpt from the LIVS website - no way in hell they could botch a diagnosis that badly:

    At Long Island Veterinary Specialists, we offer numerous cardiac diagnostic procedures as well as treatment options for a variety of conditions including:
    • Color-flow Doppler ultrasonography (echocardiography)
    • Helical computed tomography (CT)
    • Digital radiography
    • Fluoroscopy
    • Electrocardiography (ECG) to assess heart rhythms
    • Holter recording (a mobile continuous ECG recording system)
    • Blood pressure measurement
    • Contrast imaging studies of the heart and associated vessels
    As in humans, heart disease is commonly encountered in dogs and cats. At LIVS, we offer numerous cardiac diagnostic procedures as well as treatment options for a variety of cardiac diseases. We have state-of-the-art cardiac imaging capability, including color-flow Doppler ultrasonography (echocardiography), helical computed tomography (CT), digital radiography and fluoroscopy.

    The heart problem story was just a cover so Beth could keep a highly adoptable cat for herself.

    I think it's more likely that the ghost writer was secured first and then together they decided what type of pure bred cat would best lend itself to illustrations.

    If they have a twitter/fb I do think a bunch of complaints about their mis diagnosis of poor 61oda stating Stern blamed them on air is in order :c

    I guess we all believe that the Yoda story is a big fraud, so how funny would it be if Yoda suddenly died? :D

    The whole book is based on Yoda miraculously healing his heart due to kitty caretaking love. Would Beefus and Howchie let us know Yoda died? I think they would have to scramble to find an indentical Yoda fill-in. No more Instagram pictures. Or maybe Howard can photoshop Yoda in front of today's newspaper.

    I would love for all pets to live forever. But Yoda, if you are reading this post, please do us dawgshed members a big favor and take your life before the Beefus' promotional appearances. Living with that childlike nitwit, I'm sure you have already given it consideration.

    Flashback 30 years ago. You give hard working Howard Stern a glimpse into his future:

    2014, You've become a celebrity and are a near-billionaire. Yet you have to waste loads of time to line up a ghost-writer, illustrator, and promotion for your not-exactly trophy wife's dopey book about goddamn cats.

    How many yoda body doubles do you think Howard and Beth have to mitigate the pr damage that could come about if yoda dies after being "cured"?

    Yoda and robin appear to have the same doctor.
