We love Spring – But beware of poisonous plants for cats!

20 Mar 2019.

Spring flowers bring a welcome burst of colour into our homes at Easter. But they can also bring danger to our cats, especially inquisitive kittens. So please stay vigilant and keep your home feline-friendly.

Did you know that Easter Lilies for example, cause kidney failure which can be fatal to our fluffy friends?

So, which plants are toxic for cats? Currently the UK does not include cat care labelling to show which flowers and pot plants are poisonous plants for cats at home. However, The Pet Poison Helpline has a Top 10 Plants Poisonous to Pets, and the ASPCA has an extensive list of Toxic and Non-Toxic Plants. These include Easter favourites such as Tulips, Daffodils, Lilies and Crocus.
