Poisonous plants and flowers for cats


So, if we talk about indoor plants, all the greens, grown in pots on windowsills for pets are harmful, some plant can cause a slight ailment, others can cause vomiting or diarrhea, and because of the third may even be fatal.

Every cat’s reaction to the toxins released by plants is different. And there are plants that can become a “time bomb” for the animal - several years without giving signs of themselves, but the toxins will accumulate until eventually their concentration becomes critical.

In such cases, the important thing to remember is that not only is the plant toxic, but so is the soil in which it grew. After all, it was both fertilized and treated for pests.
