Well. Today is the day. This week is the week. If you feel like supporting me (i should say, supporting me more that u already do :) you could buy a copy of “PURDY“. This is the important week when a chart entry means everything. I wouldn’t ask otherwise. And if you’ve already got one, maybe one for your Auntie Flo?

Saturday Feb 21 – today has all the hallmarks of Spring (in England). But I found out something interesting about daffodils. Cats are allergic to them!
‘Daffodil toxicosis in an adult cat’.
(Dr. Sharon Saxon-Buri, Ontario Veterinary College, University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada)
A domestic longhair cat with a 3-day history of lethargy and vomiting after ingesting dried daffodil stems (Narcissus spp.) was severely hypothermic (33.0°C), with bradycardia (78 beats/min) and hypotension. Treatment with atropine, dexamethasone, fluid therapy, and supportive care resulted in a complete recovery by 6 days after exposure.

It looks like I’m strangling him here but usually it is he that is strangling me, clawing me and generally demanding attention. When in the garden mainly. Fortunately there are no daffodils there.
