The meteorologist on www.kvbc.com is a huge animal lover. he puts all kinds of articles like this up for people to be aware. he has pictures of his yellow lab, jordan, on there. and he has a section where you can e-mail him pics of your pets, and he'll try to put them on the news/website if its their birthday. chico is up there on the site, because he just had a b-day on may 25th. :D

if i see anymore articles on there, or if i come across any that would be of interest to everyone, i'll definitely post them.

Well, the list I posted is not a complete list, but out of the plants you said you had...the ones that ARE on the list for being dangerous are the Spider Plant, Philodendron, Hens & Chicks. Your other plants weren't on the list, but I'd look them up online just to be sure.
