Thankful Thursday

Today is P day for the A-Z Blogging Challenge. P is for poison awareness. If you let your cats outside then you should check this list of plants you should not have in your garden from The Daily Gardener. And everyone should have The ASPCA website bookmarked. They have an extensive list of toxic and non-toxic plants for cats and dogs.

We are also joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

I hope you never need this website, but if your cat is ever diagnosed with kidney disease, I highly recommend Tanya’s Comprehensive Guide to Feline Chronic Kidney Disease.
