I know… I honestly didn’t know this until recently either!! My MIL told me after I mentioned that DH had brought me home lilies one day. EEP!

Can I also mention liquid potpourri? i.e the liquid in Glade plug-ins, or scent diffusers.

I had one of those Febreze scented-oil diffusers in the living room. I didn’t realize it, but my cat had been playing with the sticks and had to spend the night at the vet’s. They can ingest it as they groom themselves.

I can’t believe that the website the flowers were ordered from didn’t have some sort of warning! I mean if hot coffee has to have a warning that it’s hot, why doesn’t a poisonous flower have one! I mean we can’t be the only ones that didn’t know!

Why would they have a warning? Obviously coffee has a HOT warning because you’re going to drink it, but being that lilies are not for eating, and they don’t know whether or not you have a cat, they aren’t going to put a warning. That would be like putting a warning on chocolate that says it can be deadly to cats and dogs. We do not keep flowers or plants in the house because of this.

Here’s a list of plants that are toxic to cats (you can also click on the ones that are toxic to dogs and horses or all)–there are almost four hundred of them. Here’s a list of human foods that are toxic, as well.

Thank you, I have a cat and didn’t know this. I know that some plants are bad for cats but it never occurred to me that I should be careful if my bf buys me flowers or something!

Soo glad your kitty will be ok!! *hugs*
