Instead of a heartwarming story, our lead feature of this week’s round up is going to be warning about Easter Lilies. Ever year, I’m surprised how many cat parents still don’t know how deadly these flowers can be to cats. Just one small bite of a flower, leaf, stem or pollen of this plant, or even drinking from the water they’re kept in, can cause gastric distress, and, more importantly, if left untreated, can lead to fatal kidney failure. For more information, please read my full post here and please spread the word!

If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on Monday, we told you how to care for abandoned kittens, on Tuesday, we explained the often confusing information on a pet food label, on Wednesday, Allegra and Ruby talked about why cats get the “Zoomies,” on Thursday, I invited you to join me at Jackson Galaxy’s Cat Camp, and on Friday, we reviewed How to Think Like a Cat.

Today’s video features Simon’s Cat having a close encounter with the Easter bunny – enjoy!

Have a great weekend and Happy Easter!

2 Comments on Mews and Nips: Keep Your Cats Away from Easter Lilies

  1. Not particularly popular at any holiday, there are some cycads which are interesting houseplants sometimes easy to find in supermarkets and other places you might shop for houseplants. I had two I had to give away because I adopted a cat who turned out to be one who compulsively chews on spikey plants. Toxic! I really loved the plants, but I loved the cat more. Life gets gnarly sometimes.
