Ugh, yea, this was a scary episode to bring back. A very tense time in the forum, fortunately with a happy ending. If it is benefitting people though I'm glad.

Yeah, sorry if it brought back bad memories, but it gave me such a fright. I figured I wouldn't be alone in not knowing about the dangers of Lilly plants. I nearly bought some cut flowers last week and the only thing that stopped me was the hot weather, figuring they wouldn't last. (Plus my husband hated the smell of them last time I had some in a vase).
I'm actually beginning to think they did make Bryan sick that last time. He was vomiting for "no reason" as kittens can sometimes do and now I'm thinking it was possibly the flowers. So lucky it wasn't much, much worse.

It's not just cats, either. I worked in an office where someone received a huge bouquet of flowers with giant lilies in it, and it basically took down the entire hallway! Even people who didn't have allergies were affected.

Hey all,

I certainly would not have known this so this has been a great read.

Is it just flowering lillies? Or is any plant in the family, leaves and all a no go?

Petals, leaves, water they were in and pollen

We had lillies in the house when we first had cats, but were lucky. If you know people with cats, or indeed florists, do what you can to spread the knowledge regarding their danger to cats.
