Cats love plants the way dogs love chocolate, which is strange because cats are mainly carnivores. However, though most animal species learn to stay away from things that make them sick, cats will eat plants over and over with the same results. Does this sound familiar, you lactose-intolerant people out there? Below is a list of potentially harmful flowers and plants along with their levels of toxicity from poisonous, dangerous to downright deadly.
|Flower or Plant||Level of Harm|
|Castor Bean||especially deadly, one seed can kill|
|Poinsettia||can induce vomiting|
|Pine Tree (aka Christmas Tree)||Ingesting needles or drinking tree water can induce vomiting and
|Lily of the Valley||dangerous|
|Other Lily (Easter, Tiger, Star-Gazer)||dangerous – can cause acute kidney failure|
