Spring cleaning

We’re getting a taste of spring here today – sunny and feels like it’s in the mid-70s if not warmer!  All the windows are open and Amber is enjoying the spring breeze wafting in through the screens.

I spent some time outside cleaning up the deck, and while I was at it, I cleaned the house.   I no longer use cleaning products that contain chemical ingredients.  I don’t care to have those ingredients around for my own health, but I especially don’t want them around for Amber.  Many ingredients in household cleaners contain hazardous ingredients that are toxic to pets.  Cats are especially susceptible because of the way they lick themselves when they’re grooming.  In the process, they ingest anything that has come in contact with their fur or paws.

Amber hates it when I clean the house.  She hides in the downstairs bathroom when I run the vacuum cleaner, aka “The Monster”.
