Thanks, HRP. I'll do that for sure. He does seem to be doing pretty well. I just worry that there's something I should be doing now to help prevent any damage. My Cornell Book of Cats mentioned that...

Argh! Why does my guy eat everything?! (Toxic Plants)

So, yesterday afternoon General ate some buttercup while he was on a supervised visit outside for some sun and a sniff of warm breezes (which he loves). He likes to eat some grass while he's outside,...
