Um ok I just got back from emergency with my neighbor and her cat As soon as I read this I remembered I saw an Easter Lily on her table the other day so I went straight over there and sure enough, like 5 of the leaves were chewed up. And she told me that he threw up today. So off we went. They gave him charcol and fluids and sent us home. I guess because he's alert and acting normal but they told her to watch him to make sure he is eating and drinking and not vomiting anymore. If so bring him straight back. Jeez

If anything Beth this post probably saved my neighbor's cats life so thank you.

Any pet named Iris automatically gets a thousand hugs. Beth, I hope she is ok.

I just checked that link and thankfully the lone plant in my apartment (Pachira) isn't posionious to my baby. I've bookmarked it so I'll be extra careful over what i bring or allow in my house.

I had a poinsetta on a chair where Mia always hung out at Christmastime, but I'm not sure if she ever ate any leaves. That won't happen again.

So far so good today - it's still early to know for sure, but her kidney values this morning are lower than last night (which is what I wanted to see). We'll keep watching to see if they go the other way...thanks for your prayers

Gosh, I have lilies in my house all the time and my cat has never taken any interest in them (not to mention that I didn't know they were toxic to cats). Tulips are the only flowers my cat ever chews on which I see is also on the list.

Hope your kitty will be okay.

Glad to hear your cat's doing better.
I checked that site Sicy posted and just about freaked when I saw Aloe Vera on the list. I had no idea. Thanks for posting that! I'll pass it along to my other cat-owning friends...

Update....

While Iris was in the hospital she started vomiting - I think it was just a fluke, not related to the plant thing - but it could be. I was off on Wednesday so I brought her home, she was so sick. Vomited 3 times in 8 hours, peed where she was laying without getting up, drooling, just miserable.

She's better today but still have to coax her (or more force her) to eat. No vomiting though in about 36 hours. I won't know til netx week if her kidneys are in the clear, but as of today her values are still normal 5 days out.

omg Poor Iris. That is so sad. She must have eaten a lot because my neighbors cat Behr is fine now since his trip to emergency.

Beth & Iris Lots of good vibes coming your way girl.

Aww...poor kitty. She's feeling puny now. It's so hard to see them so miserable, and force feeding a cat is not one of life's little joys. I sure hope she feels better soon.
