Lilies are poisonous to cats
I sure did not know lilies can be poisonous to cats until I brought a plant into the house overnight to take it to the office the next morning. Izzy, our cat, went crazy trying to get it as I moved it around while searching the internet to determine if it was poisonous to cats, which it is – if digested. I’ve never seen him so feverish to try to and get to something he couldn’t have. Thankfully, we realized something was wrong before he too close to it and I stuck it in my car to calm him down but PHEW that was a close call! Seasoned pet owners are probably laughing at me but seriously, if you get a pet, check those poisonous plants before you bring them in the house… now I know.
To make it up to Izzy, I am dedicating a whole post to just him, no food, all cat.
Izzy first came home with us in October of 2012 when his original owner Leanna decided that he would have a better life in our home than in her garage. This is what he looked like when we picked him up from Leanna:
He acclimated to our house within a couple of days initially , finding all the good hiding spots at first and keeping us up all night the first couple of nights. We began to learn that he is one big and curious kitty;
That he makes the cutest faces when he sleeps;
That he loves to play, when he’s interested of course;
And that he loves to hang out on Dave’s chest!
Izzy has become our little bear cat, panther, ferocious lion and a great addition to our family.
