Please be aware that lily pollen is extremely poisonous to cats. The ingestion of just a few grains can lead to renal failure, which can be fatal. If you have cats in the home, then do not have lilies and if you do, please ensure that they are in a place your cats cannot reach them. If you are given a bouquet, check there are no lilies included and remove them. If your cats go in the garden and you have lilies outside, then please also beware.

Antifreeze is equally dangerous to cats and has the same, often fatal affect, even if a few drops are ingested, so keep your car anti freeze out of the way of your cats and if your cats go outside, ensure they do not have access to water features containing anti freeze, in your own garden or in a neighbour's garden.

OMG!!! :afraid: Why are people so cruel!!!! It makes me soooo :angry2:. A friend of mine was telling me how she came about her two cats who are brothers. The girl who had them was going to drown them all until my friend said she have them and pay her for them. Once this girl realised she could make money off them she changed her mind and put an advert in the paper for the rest who luckily all found homes. I said to Liz not to invite me to a BBQ that the girl will be at cos i'll prob batter her!!

I used to be admin for the Pets forum on Handbag.com and a girl there lost her cat after the cat chewed some lillies - was only a litten too - was awful and the cat took a while to die. The vet could not do anything for her at all.

MY so many on that list, how sad for the cats who have suffered.

I did not know about potatoes? Molly often tries to pinch the leftover mash from the plate :afraid:
