    Thank you – that’s some very wise information… Of course animals as gifts has to be handled with utmost considerations. I think you made that point quite clear…. And thanks for the expanded list of toxic substances – I didn’t know about half of them…

    I think the worst part of the holidays on my fur family is New Years with the fireworks – definately pets should be protected in doors… The noise is very dangerous for them –

    Am looking forward to more episodes – Thanks & Merry Christmas :)

    You’re welcome! And thanks for the New Year’s push; I already had plans to talk about the fireworks and protecting your pets, but now I will make sure I stress that point even more.

    Thank you for listening!
