Poisonous Houseplants For Cats

There are many plants you may bring into your home without realising that they are poisonous to cats. Not all of them will prove fatal if eaten or chewed, but some most definitely can kill your much loved cat. Never assume a cat will instinctively not try to eat a poisonous plant, as all too often cats end up being rushed into the vets suffering from poisoning as a result of chewing on or eating a number of different houseplants. Those of you who read my previous hub about the dangers of Lilies to your cats will know what I am talking about here. In this article I hope to list most of the more common houseplants that are dangerous to cats so that you can either ensure you don’t bring them into your home or at least you can keep them out of the reach of your pets. I am guessing that many of the plants on this list will come as quite a surprise to you.

Hi Suiiki, These poisonous plants are just the ones used as houseplants either always or sometimes. There are many more plants that are outdoor plants that are also poisonous. You will find a far more comprehensive list on the ASPCA website. It sounds as if your neighbours cat is unlikely to try and eat the dangerous plants if she hasn’t done so already, and it would seem the cats most at risk are the housecats who get bored and decide to chew on the houseplants.Hi Hello Hello, Thanks for the good feedback.Hi H P. I hope it helps to prevent many cats from inadvertently being poisoned. Thanks for the feedback.

Poisonous Houseplants For Cats

 Deadly House Plants of   Daffodil is a name commonly applied to all varieties of Narcissus flowers. Daffodils are highly toxic, especially if the bulb is ingested. They can cause intense stomach problems, resulting in vomiting and diarrhea. When eaten, they can also cause high blood pressure, tremors, and irregular heartbeat. In some cases, ingestion of the bulbs can even be fatal. Daffodils are toxic to both humans and pets. Hyacinths share the same symptoms with daffodils when ingested–primarily nausea that leads to vomiting and diarrhea. Also like daffodils, they can be fatal, and are toxic for pets, as well. Aloe has long been a popular household plant due to its many medicinal properties, including its ability to aid with burns, cuts, and skin problems. While the gel inside the plant is known for these properties, the skin and and other inner layers can irritate human skin on contact and irritate intestines upon ingestion. Make sure the plant’s skin and subsequent yellow layer of latex are adequately cut away from the aloe gel before using. The plant is mildly toxic to pets if ingested, but is okay for topical uses (many dog shampoos utilize aloe gel). English Ivy is a vine plant grown both indoors and outdoors for decorative purposes. It is poisonous to humans, pets, and livestock when ingested. Symptoms include breathing difficulties, convulsions, vomiting, and in extreme cases, paralysis and coma. Eating the flower buds of a hydrangea can cause stomach pains, vomiting, diarrhea, heavy breathing, lethargy, and can even lead to a coma. This plant can also be poisonous to pets if ingested. Dieffenbachia is a popular house plant for its low light requirements. The plant is highly toxic however, and native Amazonian people have long used juice from the plant in a preparation to poison arrows. Among other symptoms, if ingested the plant can cause severe burning in the mouth and swelling of the tongue, which may obstruct breathing if severe enough. In serious cases, the plant can be fatal for both humans and pets. Philodendrons are a favorite among house plants. They are poisonous to both humans and pets, and ingesting them will result in painful burning and swelling of the lips, tongue and throat. They can also cause vomiting and diarrhea. Irises are poisonous to both people and pets. If eaten, they can cause nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, diarrhea, and fever. Azaleas and other rhododendrons are low toxicity plants for both pets and humans.
