Toxic Plants for Cats
There is nothing that adds colour like a bunch of fresh cut flowers around your house. They add a lovely welcoming touch to any home. But cat owners should be aware that those lovely flowers can potentially be toxic for cats.
Daffodils, for example, can cause stomach upsets, vomiting, or worse if your cat eats the foliage, flowers or pods. Other plants you may not suspect, like aloe vera, can be toxic for cats as well.
We have listed below some of the many plants that are potentially toxic for cats and should be avoided. Be especially careful with all lilies (marked *). All parts of these plants (flowers, leaves and stems) are extremely toxic to cats and have caused tragic deaths.
If your cat eats or comes in contact with any of these plants or any other dangerous items, you will need to seek immediate veterinary assistance. We also recommend that you take part of the toxic plant with you for easy identification to help with treatment.
