Last year I posted some information from my friend, Tiny Timmy, about his trip to Washington, D.C.. There his human and others met with EPA officials to discuss the dangers of certain chemicals that are legally used and sold in over-the-counter flea and tick killers.
As I’ve told you before, these products contain pyrethroids, which are potentially toxic to cats. Tiny Timmy is a cat that suffered neurological damage due to exposure to these chemicals. Oliver is a cat that died from exposure. Every year THOUSANDS of animals are harmed or are killed due to exposure to these chemicals, and yet they continue to be legally sold in products you can buy in all sorts of stores.
This year Tiny Timmy is again headed to D.C. to talk with EPA officials. To pay for the trip, he’s holding an online auction on Facebook. There’s some really cool stuff up for bids, and many of the items include free shipping!
If you’d prefer to make a monetary donation, you can do so through the Chip-In account set up by Timmy. Of if you have airmiles you could donate, please contact Timmy by posting on his Facebook page- Tiny Timmy’s Healing Journey, or through Twitter at @TinyTimmySpeaks.
