Easter Lilies are Extremely Toxic to Cats!

Cat owners need to beware that a traditional display of Easter Lilies in the house can have devastating consequences for any cat that might be tempted to ingest the plant. All parts of the plant are poisonous, and a single leaf is enough to be fatal. Even brushing up against the plant and then grooming itself can cause severe illness from kidney failure. Easter lilies, Asiatic Lilies, Daylilies, Peace Lilies, Tiger Lilies & Lily of the Valley are all poisonous to cats.
If suspected, immediate hospitalization and decontamination is required, with prolonged intravenous dialysis. The mortality rate is high, especially if treatment is delayed.
To keep a safe & happy Easter for your cat, please do not bring Lilies into the house.
