Holiday Plants and Cats

NovNov/2014201420142014 - by TheCatCoach

11.30.14  Most holiday plants are toxic to cats. They can kill or cause painful intestinal upsets if swallowed. Poisonous plants include: Mistletoe, Poinsettia, Holly, Bittersweet, Boxwood, Lilies and Christmas trees. In addition to commercial Xmas trees being sprayed with poisonous fire retardant, pine is toxic and the needles can pierce intestines and cause other injuries. Always monitor cats around live holiday plants and Xmas trees. Or, invest in fake. Fake plants last for years, don’t need to be watered and most are safe for cats.
