Own a Cat? Watch Out For House Plants!

Thursday, May 23, 2019
posted by Jim Murphy

A cat owner recently lost her beloved pet because she ate the palms that were given out at a church Palm Sunday service. The palms got lodged in the cat’s stomach and puncured some of it’s vital organs. The cat became very lethargic and began vomiting.  The owner rushed her to the vet who performed emergency surgery. Unfortunately, it was too late for this poor pet.

If you own a cat, be aware that they could accidentally swallow something that could possibly be lethal.  Watch out for the house plants that they may be chewing on. Are the leaves hard and sharp such as the palm? In this case, get rid of that plant. Don’t leave small, loose items such as buttons, pins, string or coins in places where your cat may get at them. If you notice any symptoms such vomiting, lethargy etc. don’t  try to administer any pet medication on your own. Get your cat to the vet right away!  Most importantly, you can prevent this from happening by checking your home and removing any items which may cause your cat harm.

Remember, your pets count!
