People Foods That Can Harm Your Pets
When people ask if I have kids, after I'm done laughing uncontrollably 'cause...no, I say, "Yes, they have fur." My first born is Lyric, a potential Main Coon cat that I like to say is part Puma. Next is Penny, my shorkie pup is a mix of shih tzu and yorkie. Then there is my baby, Graham, a lionhead bunny rabbit. It's very much like having three toddlers who can't say a thing but know how to guilt trip you and it's their way or no way. But, sometimes mama's gotta say, "no" because they have no idea that what's okay for me isn't okay for them. And in some cases, I didn't know either and maybe you didn't until now. Check out this list of what can be harmful for your pets if consumed. Please note that I left out alcohol because...common sense.
