Bad kitties!  That’s why we have no plants in the house!

Eek, hope they weren’t poisonous to kitties! (I’m bad with remembering which flowers are beyond lilies.) But yes, cats have a way of getting into exactly what they shouldn’t!

Check the flowers with a list of poisonous flowers! When a friend gave me a funeral arrangement, literally, EVERY flower in there was poisonous. EVERY. And they weren’t even all lillies! SH*t. I’m scared to have flowers in the home cuz my kitties like to chew on them. They love baby’s breath. Weird. The only place i can safely set a vase of flowers is the mantle of the fireplace. They literally cannot get up there. But ugh.

Wallflowers smell pretty, lol. Not the same, I know -=]. I buy “lavendar garden”

Silly naughty kitties

the list is huge: http://www.cfainc.org/articles/plants.html

HAHA! My cats do the same thing. My mom is a florist and has 23 gardens so I ALWAYS have flowers. And always have chewed up & puked up flowers!

The SPCA has a list on their website: http://www.aspca.org/pet-care/poison-control/plants/?plant_toxicity=toxic-to-cats

 

I love having flowers but my cats like to knock the entire vase over and then drag them out and eat them. So not cool. So we eneded up putting a shelf up on a wall in our bedroom where the cats can’t get to it. I don’t know why we never thought of that before! We have put some frames and candles up there too.

My kitty does the same thing. FH bought me roses and the next morning my kitty came jumped on my in bed and cuddled up under my chin. I could totally smell the roses on her. When I actually looked at her I noticed she had a little piece of petal on her chin. Sure enough she had eaten a good amount of the roses. She didn’t get sick and smelled really good the rest of the day! Regardless no more flowers for me!
