Being the owner (or rather custodian) of a new kitten I have been wanting to look up what the potential dangers are around the house. I have enough common sense to realize I can't leave an Ambien sitting out on my nightstand any longer, but are there any other dangers I wouldn't ordinarily know about? Turns out Good Housekeeping did a story on this not very long ago.
Who knew that cats can't eat lillies? Most of their warnings have to do with dogs ingesting foods they shouldn't like macadamia nuts, pennies, and even grapes and raisins. Definitly worth taking a look at if you are a pet owner.
Also know that should you find yourself in the horrible position of finding out that your pet has ingested something on this list, keep the Pet Poison Helpline number handy. There is a fee (they aren't federally or state funded like human poison control) for this service (it includes the initial call and any followup) but it is sure worth it. So go get a pen and write down the number: 800-213-6680.
