Due to a recent sad case where a young cat licked/ate part of a Lily, we thought we would remind people NEVER to buy these flowers for a household where cats live.
They are extremely toxic to cats, and only a small amount either licked or eaten, can cause kidney failure and death. Unfortunately no warnings are ever displayed where these flowers are purchased, and many well intended purchasers are unaware of their dangers. Please share this advice so we can highlight to as many as possible.
In the event of a cat licking/eating any part of these plants, veterinary attention should be sought immediately.
February is the month of Valentines Day and flowers, so please reconsider if buying flowers for a loved one who owns cats.
