And Don’t Forget: Leave the Lilies Outside!

Lilies of all species and all parts of the lily, including pollen, are highly toxic to cats and can cause kidney failure and death within 36 hours–both potted lilies and lilies in cut bouquets. Please keep your cat safe this Easter and leave the lilies outside. My article “Leave the Lilies Outside: Toxic Plants and Cut Flowers” explains why lilies are so toxic to cats and also outlines a number of other flowers to be aware of that might appear in cut bouquets. Have a happy and safe Easter weekend!
