Guide to Pet-Safe House Plants

I wanted to send you an email to thank you for your webpage. My family and I recently adopted a new addition - a twelve week old kitten who is an absolute delight, but can be a handful of energy at times! Thank you for the information on your site, it's been very helpful in teaching us about keeping our new kitten healthy & safe. :) During my research I found a good resource that would be helpful for your visitors and the safety of their pets. The article is "Guide to Pet-Safe House Plants." Would you mind including the article on your page for me? It's been really helpful in teaching us in how to cat-proof our home against everyday house plants, I had to give a few of my plants away because I had no idea they could be so harmful! Thanks again for the great page, please let me know if you get the chance to update!

Have a great day, ~Joan
