A public warning

Most of my friends know this already, but I want to post a public warning that all pets should be kept away from raisins, grapes and currants.(Chocolate and lilies are lethal to cats too).

My beloved kitten,Harry ate some fruit cake on Friday while I was out. I phoned the vet who took it very seriously and told me to bring Harry in at once. We were seen within 5 minutes by the chief vet.

Harry had to spend all weekend under observation and be given preventative treatment, which the vet warned might not work. Luckily, his test results were clear, but the outcome could have been very different.

At best, a hefty vet's bill, at worst the loss of a beloved pet.
