Valentine's Day flowers & Pets

Be careful with your flowers. There are many varieties that can cause problems for cats and dogs, but be especially careful with lilies. They pose a significant threat to cats. Guys, when sending a floral arrangement, request that it contain no lilies if your lover has a cat as all species within the plant genera Lilium are toxic to cats. And please de-thorn your roses, as their sharp, woody spines can hurt your pet if chewed, stepped on or swallowed. For more information on a list of plants that are toxic to animals, please visit the ASPCA.
