Easter Lilies Poisonous to Cats

Kitty-Lovers, Just Say "No Thanks" to Easter Lilies!

Along with doggy dangers lurking in your Easter basket, Easter lilies are popular holiday flowers that should never be brought into a home that includes cats.

The fragrant blooms are one of the most poisonous flowers for kitties. Just one or two leaves or flowers can fatally harm a feline! Even if you think your pet will show no interest in this plant, don't take any chances this Easter season. When ingested, this lily (along with Tiger, Asiatic, and other varieties) causes depression then vomiting, loss of appetite, and loss in body weight, with the first symptoms showing up within 30 minutes — and potentially acute renal failure 48 hours postingestion.

While lilies are nontoxic to dogs, please brush up on other poisonous plants and have the ASPCA poison control hotline handy. Don't hesitate to rush any pet you fear has gotten hold of a dangerous stem or blossom to the doctor immediately!
