List of Toxic Plants

No Lilies for Kitties

Please spread the word! If you own cats, tell your family, friends, neighbors, etc. that lilies are deadly. If you are gifted a lily plant, either keep it outside or immediately toss it in the garbage (or burn it).

If your cat has ingested any amount of a lily plant, take it straight to the nearest emergency vet.

Many other plants are toxic to pets, although most of these will cause gastrointestinal symptoms such as vomiting and or diarrhea.

It is always a great idea to research any plant species before bringing it into your home. Take a photo of it if you don’t know the name, and do a google image search.

It is worth taking the time to do this if you don’t appreciate surprise vet bills!!!

 

The feline digestive system is not equipped to break down, digest, and metabolize plants at all. This is why they puke them up! Don’t ever let anyone tell you that cats need to eat plants or vegetables.

Cats do still like to chew on plants anyway, just like an unsupervised baby or toddler will stick non-edible things in their mouth.

Cat grass is safe, but your cat may still puke it up or it may come out in their poop. Cat grass is usually wheat, oats, barley, rye, or flax.  Organic & non-GMO grass is ideal.
