Curious cats will explore anything that interests them. Unless you know with certainty that a flower or plant is non-poisonous, be safe and keep all flowers and plants out of your pet’s reach. If you send flowers to a friend or relative who has a cat, make sure you select flowers that are safe.

Lilies

The toxins damage the cat’s kidneys. Prompt veterinary attention is required. Without treatment, kidney failure will result in 36 to 72 hours.
