While this little fellow didn't get hurt, a warm car engine can be enticing to small animals when the weather turns colder. If your car has been sitting a few days, it's a good idea to check under the hood before you get in and drive off. If you know you won't be using your car for a while, mothballs are a natural deterrent to critters. Put a small mesh bag of moth balls under the hood. Remove it while you're driving the car, though!

Today is Save the Eagles Day. There are more than 70 species of eagles throughout the world. The only exception is Hawaii, where no species of eagles reside. Poaching, pesticides and other dangers continue to threaten eagle populations.

Some species of eagles are on the endangered list due to poaching and pesticides. However, due to the work of scientists and the public, the Bald Eagle was removed from this list in June 2007. #SavetheEaglesDay

Looks like you don't have to ban poinsettias from your home this holiday season. Even if Fido or Mittens gets into them, they're not deadly, just "sickly". See what the Pet Poison Helpline says below.

Poinsettias and Cats, Dogs - Poinsettias Poisonous to Cats

Poinsettias are only mildly toxic to cats and dogs. Medical treatment is rarely necessary, but if you think your pet has been poisoned, call your vet or 800-213-6680.

It is nice to know this. I was under the impression that the Poinsettia was deadly. That is why I haven’t bought one for many, many years.
But I still don’t want to have one cuz I would feel terrible if my Dog became ill from one.
Many of us are pulling out the Christmas decorations which can be very joyous and festive, however, if you have pets in the house, make sure the decorations don't become a danger to your beloved companions.

Top Ten Holiday Decorations to Avoid | petMD

Twinkling lights, sparkly tinsel, brightly colored garland, and delicate ornaments – what’s not to love about holiday decorations? The dangers they can pose for your beloved pet, that’s what. While avoid may be too strong of a word, as we’re not suggesting you do away with all of these decorations completely, this holiday season please be mindful of the sorts of decorations you use and their placement.
