There are lots of pets out there that need a loving home... find out how you can help!

Lillies - Never bring them into your home if you have a cat!

Lillies

Sure, they are beautiful and a wonderful Easter plant. They are also the grim reaper for your cat. Sounds dramatic, doesn't it? The ENTIRE plant, from the stem to the pollen, the petals, the leaves, ALL OF IT is toxic to cats. Don't bring the darn plant into your house. If you are given one, give it to someone else that doesn't have a cat. If you don't want to part with it, take it to work. The results of one bite of the plant will destroy your cat in 12 hours.

If you have one in your home and you think your cat has taken a bite of the plant, get that cat to a veterinarian immediately. Do not wait. Time is vital in saving your cat. ALWAYS have your emergency vet clinic number handy. Even if your cat gets pollen on their fur, bathe them immediately. Cats clean themselves and will ingest the pollen. Lilies equals certain death for felines. It's not worth it.
