No Easter Lilies for Kitty Lovers
As a cat lover, I've had to be very careful what plants and flowers I have around the house. Stella, my adopted tabby, will eat anything green and leafy. She seems quite partial to fresh basil! But some plants our deadly for our purrrfect pets. Easter lilies in particular, are highly toxic to cats. All parts of the Easter lily plant are poisonous – the petals, the leaves, the stem and even the pollen. Cats that ingest as few as one or two leaves, or even a small amount of pollen while grooming their fur, can suffer severe kidney failure.
