Things Poisonous To Cats

Cat Poisoning Recued KittyCat poisoning doesn't just occur with chemical poisoning. It happens when your cat ingests some of the simplest and prettiest things that surround us. More than 700 house, garden and wild varieties of plants are poisonous to cats.  A critical part of cat care is knowing what can harm you cat.  As a general rule, any plant that has a colored or milky sap are poisonous to cats.

Unfortunately, there is no way to ensure that your pets will never get sick or hurt. That's one reason why you should do your best to keep plants that contribute to cat poisoning out of his way.  As you read the list of plants you'll probably wonder if you should eradicate them from your surroundings.

Cat's and kittens depend on you to keep them out of harms way

Keep in mind that cat's (and especially kittens) don't instinctively know that a plant is bad for them.

So...if you see your Sammy taking a chomp of your tulips, do something to divert him - permanently. Spraying Sammy with the hose at the same time he approaches the tulips works great!
