With Easter coming in less than one week, many households are looking to spruce up their houses for their Easter celebrations. For many people, lilies make up a big part of their Easter traditions. However, lilies, such as Easter lilies, Japanese show lilies, tiger lilies, Asiatic lilies and day lilies can cause acute renal failure in cats. Peace lilies, Peruvian lilies and Calla lilies aren't "true" lilies, but may still be toxic.
If you want fresh flowers around your house for Easter, but you have cats, consider these alternatives instead. Your cat might still eat them, and he'll probably vomit after doing so. However, the vomiting is self-limited and it happens because he can't digest the plant material, and not because he's been poisoned.
If you have these in your garden, but they aren't ready yet, call around to local florists to find out what they have. You can still have gorgeous flowers in your house without worrying about your pet getting to them.
