When I moved out of my parents house into my own apartment I (like most young ladies) could not wait to decorate my new place. Pinterest became my new happy place and I was entranced with fairy lights, pastel colors and house plants. Plants bring a new sense of life into a space- they give you something to care for and take pride in within the walls of your home.
What i didn't realize was how deadly plants could be to the little critters running around your house. Even with owning two curious cats- it never crossed my mind until i crossed paths with an article warning of the dangers. If your cat digests a flower that is poisonous it can cause an intense burning sensation in the mouth, vomiting, diarrhea, seizures, liver and kidney damage, or even heart arrhythmias. Scary, right?
