Mews and Nips: Easter Lilies are Deadly for Cats

eas ter-lilies-cats-deadly-toxic

Instead of a heartwarming story, our lead feature of this week’s round up is going to be a 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 why you shouldn’t wear shoes inside the house, on Tuesday, we introduced you to NomNomNow’s new variety pack, on Wednesday, we celebrated Ruby’s 8th adoption anniversary, and on Friday, we told you what we know so far about the upcoming movie Cats. And don’t forget to enter our giveaway to win an Always in My Heart crystal cat necklace from Triple T Studios!

Since tomorrow is Easter, today’s sweet video of a cat and her bunny friend seemed like the purrfect fit – enjoy!

Have a great weekend!

    Would you please give us a complete list of plants that can be harmful to our kitty children? I love plants but don’t want my little guy harmed in any way. He’s an indoor kitty but oftentimes accompanies me onto our patio. Unfortunately, if I’m not watching him with an eagle eye, I’ve caught him munching on some of the leaves of geraniums, maidenhair ferns and hydrangeas, and I’m horrified and so worried each time. Please help!

    The only plants I have indoors are African Violets because I’ve read they are safe. I hope this is true.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    I just smell them at the store. Too dangerous even up high.

    I love flowers, but when I get them, I put them up on the fireplace mantle where no one can reach them. Being part of a pet parent should be knowing what is safe and not.

    I never bring any flowers into my house I don’t like the smells. Plus i have my babies I don’t want nothing too happen to them.
