Re: Cats

Wow, that's scary.  
Last summer I saw a man and youngster picking out what appeared to be
everything for a new cat. The man had a bottle of flea bath in his hand.
I couldn't help but butt in and ask the age of the animal - just a
kitten. So I warned him. When something is new and we aren't prepared,
it is easy to get overwhelmed and not take the time to read the fine
print. He put it back.
