Has anybody ever heard that Stargazer lilies were poisonous to cats? Apparently they are and so are several other lilies.

yikes, I knew they were poisonous, but I never knew licking pollen from fur could be fatal!

I have a peace lily right now that was given to me as a gift. My kitty leaves it alone - doesn't seem the least bit interested in chewing or tasting the leaves, but now I am paranoid about her rubbing against the flowers.

the good news is that peace lillies are not true "from a bulb" lily. i have a 14 year old peace lily and 2 ten year old cats and they have co-existed very well. ( nutz well, maybe not "very well" the cats like to knock the pots over laugh ) however, if you are concerned about the pollen from your peace lily, you can cut the bloom or "spath" as it is called, off before it fully opens. this will not hurt the plant at all.

My Mom sent me the article and it shocked me. We both love to bring in cut lilies but not again. My cats leave my plants alone usually with exception to my spiderplants and dracenas. I had no idea about daylilies either. I adore them and have many.
