Susan,

Thank you for the fantastic job you are doing in keeping us all informed about tainted food for pets and now for humans too. As you know, lots of us love every photo of a dog or a cat that gets posted on thriftyfun. com. And the possibility of feeding our pets commercial pet food or homemade food that is tainted is dreadful to think about. I'm glad I can get reliable info from you and the links you provide. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
