Poisonous Plants to Cats

Cats and kittens love to chew on grass and other plants! Unfortunately some of these are dangerous! Some only cause mild symptoms, diarrhea, vomiting, others can cause organ failure and even death.

Pet owners need to be aware and take the steps to protecting their cats from these plants. If you have plants in the house you should know the name of them. Some plants have different common names depending on the area of the country in which you live. Please make sure you know what you have!
If you think your pet has chewed or eaten one of these plants, please contact the poison control center for advice.
The ASPCA National Animal Control Center hot line number is:
