Plants Toxic To Cats

lillyplant.gif

Some plants are harmful especially those in the lily family!

The following listing of toxic plants was complied and made available to the public by the ASPCA National Animal Poison Control Center. In some cases, just parts of a plant (bark, leaves, seeds, berries, roots, tubers, spouts, etc) might be poisonous. This list rules out the whole plant. Please note that Easter lilies and other variations in the lily (*) family can be deadly to a cat.

If you have plants in your home that are toxic, you may try spraying the leaves with water and sprinkling ginger on them.  However, this still may not be a determent. Should your cat eat part of a poisonous plant, rush it to your veterinarian and if possible, take the plant (for ease in identification) with you.
