    Noticed a lot of people disagree with the statement about tap water being safe, but they did follow it by saying if it's safe for people it is safe for cats. Therefore if your tap water is not safe for you , it is not safe for kitty either

    I like this quiz and think it gets you thinking about things around the house and outdoors that could cause harm. The thing about the lilies makes me verify any houseplants I might bring in.

    Several years ago, I had the flu and was bedridden for a week. My Speedy slept by my side throughout the whole ordeal. That was the best medicine I could have. I am glad cats can be there when we are ill.

    I can't keep any type of elastic, hair band around because Speedy loves them. I am really careful, I don't want her to get a blockage. I also have a container to dispose of my used dental floss in the medicine cabinet. I think the floss could cause a blockage too. I am just worried that she might pull it from the waste basket otherwise.

    The only one I don't agree with is the tap. But that is only because our tap is SOO gross. People can't drink from it, dogs can't, cats can't. It actually smells like metal sometimes. Also, some chemicals they add to water are dangerous such as Flouride and Chlorine.

      We did the annual water test through the city. They said it was safe to drink brush teeth boil etc. But it smell like eggs all the time so the animals wouldn't drink it. We also couldn't wash the car with it because it left marks on the windows.

      Twice a year, here in South Florida they flush the pipes with an Ammonia based chemical that stinks like Chlorine like they used to use. So last year I tested the tap water with my swimming pool test kit and it registered way over the top scale for Chlorine, in which case the test kit says not safe to swim in. I called the Broward County Utilities Company and asked them why the water had a smell and they explained the pipes were being flushed but, "it was perfectly safe to drink." I thin explained that I tested with my pool kit and asked them how it was not safe to swim in but they say safe to drink. The conversation ended. So NO, I do not believe tap water is safe here and totally disagree with whoever posted this quiz. I've since purchased an under sink water filter system.

      I live in Canada but I only give my guys filtered water I started doing this when the vet was concerned about Hector's kidneys found that the filtered water was so much better I got a multi stage under the sink filter system it is better for all of us I think. The city water smells like a public pool unfiltered it also leaves a brown stain on everything and corrodes plumbing with lime.
