Just found a piece on an old BBC news page that mentions how bad it is to smoke around your pet, especially cats apparently. Cats get feline lymphoma really easily from secondhand cigerette smoke and dogs get cancer. Very worrying especially as I have recently got a new cat. I guess it makes sense -they must have tiny little lungs anyway.
The RSPCA are thinking of bringing in checks if you want to rescue a pet to make sure it doesn't go to a smoking household.
Just a little nugget of info for those pet owners who might fall of the wagon. I've printed the page off a stuck it on my fridge door.
