    I wonder how much was spent on this study. They could have just handed me the cash and I would have told them the same thing.

    Eh, but you wouldn't have been able to say what the risks were, unless you had access to a vet clinic's records, nor would you be able to survey the owners themselves about their habits to make the correlation.

    This would have been a very cheap study, probably costing nothing more than a few months work from a couple of graduate students.

    I always felt guilty when I smoked around my cat. That's one of the reasons why I quit cigarettes. And any cigars get smoked outside.

    Well, it's certainly cheaper to rifle through vet records than herding a bunch of cats into a room with a bunch of chain-smokers...cigarettes are expensive, and imagine the costs associated with herding cats! [​IMG]

    Second hand smoke is the least of my worries. My cat took up the habit and is up to a pack a day! [​IMG]
