Did you know that many indoor and outdoor plants are toxic to cats? Here are some of the most common shrubs to watch out for and suggestions for safer alternatives.
Common plants that are toxic to cats
Highly toxic plants:
- Lilies, including peace lily
- Christmas trees
*This list is only highlighting the most common offenders, not all toxic plants.
If you are looking to add some nature to your home, some plant retailers or online florists have a pet-friendly section of their website. Our favourite non-toxics to our furry friends are spider plants and calatheas.
Signs your cat has plant poisoning
- Hot or cold body temperature
- Drinking more than usual
*You may notice none or all of these signs if your cat has had a nibble on a toxic plant, so stay on your toes!
