Holiday Alert: Watch Out For Plants Poisonous to Your Cat

With the ever-present excitement of the upcoming holidays, it’s easy to forget that this time of the year can be dangerous for cats.

This is because some of the plants used for holiday decorations are poisonous to felines. This is why we need to be particularly careful in selecting flowers and the like.

Holly (and Rosemary)  

These plants can cause extreme gastrointestinal upset, drooling, lip smacking, and continuous head shaking. Allergic to both cats and dogs. 


Gorgeous flowers, but if your kitty were to take a couple bites, he may experience acute kidney failure, which can result in death. 


Can cause gastrointestinal upset if a small amount is consumed and apaxia, seizures, hypotension, and death in higher doses. 


May lead to vomiting, drooling, and sometimes diarrhea. Poinsettias are actually less toxic to cats than most people assume.
