People NEVER think of the consequences when putting poison into the environment. Luckily, it seems this cat will survive. He points out the dangers of environmental toxins, though and, in a way, I'm glad to read/hear all the publicity arising from it.

MAYBE it'll reach some of the people who need to know this.

Noted with thanks Cher. I am happy to hear this cat P-22 will survive! To me it is mind blowing that whoever is in charge of this, has not thought it through very well. What if a family pet ate the rat poison, or a young person picked it up, and no where to wash hands. We could hear about something like this in the future.The big cat has been roaming around Hollywood for a long time, and no incidents have been reported, so it seems that if people leave them alone, they will leave people alone!
