Undercover Kitty is a blog listing links to news stories I’ve found around the internet on other blogs, in news services and on Facebook concerning health and welfare for felines and all animals including just the title, brief synopsis and a link for easy reference.

Veterinary Medicine: 4 case reports of household toxicity

This week, 4 case reports of “household” toxicities in dogs and cats. A good reminder to pet-proof the house by storing potential poisons out of reach and throwing out those expired medications.

Lovely Lucy

Undercover Kitty is dedicated to the memory of Lucy, who died at 15 months of feline infectious peritonitis (FIP), and Namir, who died at 15 years after a five-year battle with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM); a photo of the two of them, who were great buddies for the brief time they shared, is in the header. For both illnesses, having the internet available to me was invaluable as I could find articles and connect with other people who had cats with the same illnesses, this in turn immensely increasing what I could do for these two, and others. This is in part my payback for all I learned. You can sign up to receive my posts by entering your e-mail address in the sign up box on Undercover Kitty.
