Pet owners often assume their cats and dogs will instinctively know which plants are safe to eat and which ones are toxic.
But for some reason domesticated animals will chew on just about anything if given the chance, including common plants that are actually pure poison for pets.
If your cat likes to hang out on the counter they might be enticed by that beautiful bouquet of lilies you bring home, but lilies can cause kidney failure in cats and ingestion is fatal if not treated within 18 hours.
The sap from both the elephant ear and dumb cane plants can be fatal if ingested, and if the sap gets into your cat's eyes while it's prowling around they can get mighty infected.
Learned that one the hard way, and lemme tell ya- it's no fun trying to hold your cat down and give them eye drops!
Those beautiful foxgloves that sprout up all over the place are poisonous to both pets and people, but your pets probably won't notice them until you bring them inside, so leave them in the yard where they belong!
