News Stories Regarding Plant/Flower Toxicity

image41

• Consider the kitties when using lilies around your home

2/15/2020  "It is the symbol of resurrection, a favorite Easter flower, but there's a dark side to these beautiful flowers. They are absolutely deadly poisonous to domestic cats." "If you suspect that your cat has eaten any part of a lily or its pollen or has drunk water from a vase containing lilies, immediately call your veterinarian or a pet poison control center.  –U.S. Food and Drug Administration, 2019" - Desert Sun

• Some houseplants can sicken cats: Pet Connection

2/12/2020  "Many common houseplants can make your cats ill, and a few can be deadly. Among the most dangerous are dieffenbachia, lily of the valley and philodendron. Various ivies and yews can be troublesome, too, and the bulbs of plants popular for “forcing” into early indoor bloom -- such as amaryllis, daffodils and tulips -- can cause problems for the cat who likes to dig and chew." - GoErie.com
