Question: My cats are chewing on the plants. Should I be concerned?

Answer: Some plants are poisonous and some plants just cause GI upset. Lilies, Marijuana, Sago Palm, Tulip/Narcissus Bulbs, Azalea, Rhododendron, Kalanchoe, Yew, Chrysanthemum, English Ivy and others are poisonous. It would be good if you could find out the names of your plants and research if they are poisonous. We recently lost a beautiful cat that died from chewing on a philodendron.
