Oreo, who was not named for a cookie, has left for "the coolest place a kitty could be." Stop by and read his human mom's tribute to her sweet boy and if you can, leave her a message.
And now for the main subject for today.
Oh, great, it isn't bad enough humans (albeit inadvertently) try to kill us with toxic chemicals in sprays, topicals, collars or shampoos, now there are counterfeit and incorrectly labeled pesticide products on the market. We're so glad The Frugal Feline posted about this subject. This is very important information to protect the health of your dogs and cats.
Please read the information from the US Environmental Protection Agency on Counterfeit Pesticide Products for Dogs and Cats. Check your products to be sure you didn't mistakenly purchase one of the counterfeits.
And the Natural Resources Defense Council has posted information on flea control products and collars that is a must read for all humans who use flea products on their furries. There is a pocket guide to pesticides in products you can download, print and take with you to the store. Please check this information and bookmark the page. It won't matter how well you humans feed us or how often you brush us or exercise us, if you poison us with highly toxic chemicals.
Saturday we posted about Charlie "crossing the river." Golden Honey also passed away on Saturday, but we didn't learn about it until Sunday.
We hope Daisy the Curly Cat is doing better. She caught a bad cold. We didn't know you could catch a cold in FL. Guess we might as well stay in GA.
Today, the CB is worried about Daddy Charley (a human). Miss Peach's lapdaddy is home but Miss Peach's stitches are still infected and she'll have to go back to the vet.
This is all we can remember of our weekend. If we left out anything important, please forgive us. We are hoping this week will be happier. So, to help, we offer a happier note.
We received this award from Honey the Great Dane. So we have to tell everyone why we love blogging.
That's easy. We love the animal bloggers. When one is going through a trial, others gather around to support them. Whether it is a sick pet or a sick human. We have met bloggers from so many different countries and we so enjoy their different personalities and imaginative posts -- cats, dogs, hamsters, rabbits.... We've even met a Capybara -- Caplin Rous. We'd never heard of a capybara before this.
