Everybody enjoys a beautiful garden or front lawn but we love our pets equally! Some plants and flowers may be toxic to your furry friends and it’s important to learn which ones should be avoided around and outside the house if you have cats. That’s why this article will help you learn which plants and flowers are toxic and safe for cats.
What plants are safe to have in the house with cats?
Now that we’ve established which plants are toxic, let’s go through the permissible plants in a house with cats.
Another beautiful flower is the Orchid which comes in many variants like the Cocktail orchid, Brazilian orchid, Dancing doll orchids, and Golden lace orchids to name a few. While they can be gorgeous houseplants, it’s essential to know whether they are harmful. We’re happy to report that orchids are safe for cats and will only cause a mild tummy ache in the worst-case scenario if ingested. But the ASPCA reports that all types of orchids are non-toxic. However, there are over 25000 species of orchids, so it’s best to consult a professional if you’re unsure.
Good news for succulent owners and lovers – most pets will avoid them by instinct. Most varieties of succulents are completely non-toxic to cats and since they don’t smell appetizing enough, they will avoid ingesting or touching them in general.
Beautiful rose bushes are a popular choice as a garden plant and the good news is that all plants of the rose family are safe for cats! However, beware of other plants that have ‘rose’ in the name but belong to a different genus. For instance, the Christmas rose is poisonous to cats but belongs to the buttercup family. The Desert rose, part of the dogbane family also has a milky sap that can prove dangerous. For a detailed list of plants with ‘rose’ in the name, check the table for toxic and non-toxic plants.
The spider plant, also known as spidery ivy and ribbon plants, is non-toxic to cats as stated by the ASPCA. But it is attractive since it can produce hallucinogenic effects in the furry species. When ingested, it can only cause a mild stomach ache or vomiting, which is the natural reaction to the ingestion of something like grass.
Another highly attractive and sweet-smelling flower is the lilac. Lilacs are usually deemed safe, except for a couple of varieties. Species like the Persian lilac and French lilac are highly toxic and cause severe abnormal symptoms like gastrointestinal problems, weakness, and sometimes even seizures. The symptoms can take 3-4 days to develop so keep an eye on your kitty if he/she has been around the flowers.

Unlike other herbs, this one is safe in any form for your cats – powder, dried, or fresh basil leaves.
Fern plants are house plants that aren’t toxic to cats – just ask Garfield, the fern lover! However, many plants with fern in the name and properties resembling the plant can be very toxic. For instance, Asparagus fern, Emerald Fern, Lace Fern, and Fern Palm are some of the toxic varieties with ‘fern’ in the name. Make sure to always look up the name and double-check its toxicity before bringing in a house with cats.
Clusters of bright orange and yellow marigolds are sight for sore eyes, and guess what? They’re completely non-toxic. Not only can your kitties run freely in marigold beds, but your home can stay insect-free since marigolds are a natural insect repellent, especially for mosquitoes!
If you’re looking to add a spot of color to the house, Petunias come in any color imaginable. The best part – they are completely safe to be around all kinds of pets – including cats, dogs, horses, and rabbits. If you’ve got a tortoise, petunias can safely become a part of their diet too.
Pansies are naturally multi-colored flowers and one to make one stop and stare. Even your pets can be in awe of the flowers since they are completely non-toxic and the ASPCA says no ill effects are reported even if ingested.
Snapdragons are colorful long flowers that owe their name to the dragon-like appearance that forms when they are squeezed laterally. Snapdragons are completely non-toxic for cats and other pets, and if you’re worried they’ll become food for deer in your area, don’t worry. Deer will usually avoid eating snapdragons until they have to – so it’s a win-win!
The jasmine is one of those plants you need to research slightly more before planting or buying in a house with cats. While the common jasmine and others like cinnamon jasmine and star jasmine are harmless around pets, other varieties may end up being very toxic. The toxic plants that have ‘jasmine’ in the name include Cape Jasmine and Paraguayan Jasmine.
Rosemary is a versatile herb used in cooking and some believe it has certain healing powers too. Not only does it help with digestion, skin and hair solutions but can also stimulate memory and boost alertness. And the best part – it’s perfectly non-toxic. They will most likely stay away from its strange smell and spikey texture.
Just like basil, another flavorful herb used in continental and Asian cuisine is cilantro. And just like basil, these tasty leaves can be chewed by your kittens too. Cilantro or coriander is completely non-toxic.
The ASPCA classifies the hibiscus plant known as the Rose of Sharon and Rose of China, as non-toxic to cats, dogs, and horses. However, some sources claim that mild irritation can be expected in some pets if they consume too much of the hibiscus plant.
Palm plants make for a grand entrance at any hotel reception, porch, or resort. The good news is that common palm plants like the Areca and Lady palm are non-toxic to cats and dogs. However, beware of plants with palm in the name but aren’t part of the palm family at all. For instance, the Sago palm is a cycad and is highly toxic to pets.
All types of pine are completely non-toxic, so bring in the festive season with cheer. Due to their sharp nature, most cats will steer clear of pine needles but if you think your cat is too curious, you should avoid keeping them around pine needles.

Blueberries are a super-food for humans, thanks to their power-packed anti-oxidants. Those very anti-oxidants are great for cats too, which is why some cat food contains blueberry powder. As a result, blueberries are non-toxic.
Bromeliads are great for pet-owners and gardening novices, thanks to their hassle-free care. Not only do bromeliads thrive with little care in your home, but they can also go soil-free and are completely non-toxic!

Which plants are most toxic to cats?
Before getting plants in a house with pets, or bringing pets in a house with plants, it’s important to know which ones are most toxic for cats. Keep reading our extensive list of what to avoid.
The festive season will around pretty poinsettias to liven up the house and add a pop of color. But did you know that they can irritate kittens and cats? While poinsettias won’t prove fateful, they can prove to be very irritating due to the chemical diterpenoid phorbol esters. The milky sap of poinsettias can cause symptoms like digestive issues, drooling, vomiting, and skin irritation like swelling, redness, and irritation. However, these symptoms will rarely require medical attention and will heal quickly with time.
Peace lilies are a plant known for their wondrous ability to grow under almost any condition. However, they aren’t ideal for a pet lovers’ home since the leaves contain a dangerous element named calcium oxalate that can dissolve and damage deep into the tissues of cats even before ingested and deeply damage the tongue.
Tulip fields look romantic but they aren’t the best place to take your pets along. If you’re thinking about gifting or planting them in a house with kitties, think again. Tulips are from the lily family and contain glycosides that can be fatal. With toxicity in leaves, bulb and the flower, it’s best to steer clear of the whole plant if you’ve got cats.
Geranium flowers are part of the Pelargonium genus that has many flowering varieties. Unfortunately, these beautiful additions can prove very harmful. Even the water from the Geranium plant vase can cause your pet to have stomach problems, lethargy, vomiting, and loss of appetite.
Mums or Chrysanthemums are common seasonal flowers to be seen in the winter but little did you know that the leaves and flower heads can be very toxic! Chrysanthemums are of many types, including the daisy variety and all these types must be confirmed for toxicity to cats before buying or planting.
Snake plants are one of the toughest varieties to exist and that’s why they’re present in almost all homes. But the bad news is that the compound called saponins can cause nausea, diarrhea, and other problems when swallowed. So it’s in your pet’s interest to never let them sink their teeth into this one.
Daffodils are gorgeous flowers to write poems on, but they’re a big ‘no’ around cats. Similar to hyacinths, the bulb of daffodils contains elements that can deeply irritate the tissues of the tongue and penetrate deeper to cause further problems. The symptoms to watch out for are drooling, seizures, increased heart rate, gastrointestinal problems, and difficulty in breathing.
Peonies make for a grand entrance at any walkway or bushes on your front lawn during springtime. But did you know peonies can be poisonous for your pets? The toxin paeonol will cause vomiting in your pets if ingested. Look out for signs of lethargy and fatigue if you’re worried about exposure.
Aloe vera may be full of healing properties for skin and hair but is not a good option to keep around cats. Aloe is only mild to moderately discomfortingif ingested and you can avoid this by spraying it with vinegar in high places away from your pet’s reach.
Begonias are versatile plants with unique colored leaves and blooming flowers. But these very attractive features of the begonia can cause severe burning sensations and huge discomfort if ingested by a kitty. They can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and even kidney failure. The important thing to note is that most of the toxic portion is beneath the soil in potted plants and planted beds.
As mentioned earlier, all lilies are good to steer clear of when you’re a cat owner. With Calla lilies too, you should bear the same precaution even though they aren’t fatal. But even though they won’t bear much effect on the organs, the calcium oxalate crystals can damage the tongue, mouth, and esophagus of your kitty.
Amaryllis is the only genus in the family of Amaryllidaceae and bears beautiful bulbous flowers. These flowers include the Bella Donna lily, Naked Lady, and Saint Joseph Lily. But we regret to inform you that it is off-limits and very toxic for both cats and dogs. Unfortunately, the lycorine puts cats and dogs at risk of stomach problems, lethargy, and even tremors.
The soothing Lavender is healing in both its smell and application for humans but those kitty paws should be kept far from the reach of any form of lavender. The ASPCA makes it clear that the linalool and linalyl acetate present in lavender can lead to damage to the nervous system and liver if inhaled or ingested by cats.
There are many varieties of daisy flowers as well as many plants with ‘daisy’ in the name. But if you’re looking to include the common daisy or the chamomile variety, be sure to know they are very toxic. However, varieties like the African daisy, Barberton daisy, and Gerber daisy are non-toxic for cats and come in very vibrant colors too!
As the name suggests the Devils Ivy or Pothos plant might be a great addition to a high wall or a balcony, but it is very toxic. It is a safe idea to keep them away from farm animals like sheep, chickens, cows, and pigs too.
Carnations make for great gift bouquets for loved ones, in their pinks, wild and sweet William varieties. But they can quickly become a cause for distress if the house cats start chewing on them. Carnations are toxic and can cause irritation to the stomach and lead to diarrhea or vomiting in pets.
Dahlias are the favorite of spring lovers everywhere. However, they’re very toxic and the symptoms of ingestion include skin irritation, itching, diarrhea, and loss of excessive fur. Take your pet to the vet immediately if you spot these signs.
Like daisies, it’s important to know the details of the bamboo plant. Some versions of the bamboo, e.g., Heavenly bamboo or sacred bamboo are toxic if ingested. However, other options like Golden bamboo, Bamboo vine, and Bamboo palm are considered non-toxic by the ASPCA.
Now here’s a shocker no one would expect – grapes are more toxic to cats than chocolate! Even in a grape plant, the stems and leaves are very hard to digest, leading to further health problems.
The coleus plant or Spanish thyme has vivid patterns that make it a favorite of plant lovers. Unfortunately, coleus can severely burn any kitty even if they brush past coleus. Their oils act as irritants for your furry friend’s skin and ingestion can lead to even worse symptoms like diarrhea, blood in stool, or depression, and lethargy.
The Philodendron family includes the likes of fiddle leaf and Swiss cheese plant and makes for a great showstopper in any living room or porch area. But sadly, these qualify as mild to moderately toxic, so keep their paws away from them!
The popular baby’s breath is breathtaking when it becomes part of any flower arrangement or garden flowerbeds. However, you must know this plant classifies are moderately toxic for our feline furry friends. It is slightly poisonous and can cause anorexia, vomiting, and diarrhea.
The Branching or sweetheart ivies are well-known creeping and climbing plants, known to make an appearance in Shakespearean balconies. But it’s no longer romantic when you find out that it’s toxic for your kitten. Part of the Hedera family, it contains triterpenoid saponins that can lead to many stomach problems, hypersalivation, and lethargy.
The name might fool you but Daylilies aren’t part of the lily family, but the Hemerocallis. These stunning flowers blossom in the morning and die by nightfall, hence the name. But as mentioned before, it’s best to avoid any type of lily entirely when you are a cat owner. Even daylily variety can prove very toxic.
Gardenias are creamy-white flowers in unique shapes and sizes with many lower classifications like Cape jasmine and gardenia thunbergia. But these extraordinary flowers contain geniposides and gardenosides that are toxic for cats and other pets. Digestion issues and breaking out in hives are common signs if the plant is ingested.
While the jade plant is considered a sign of good luck in many countries, its poisoning is a serious condition. If left untreated, the toxic jade can even lead to death.
Anthurium is a flowering plant that is shell-shaped and grows in vibrant colors which makes it the number one choice for a lovely bouquet. Due to their shape, they’re also called Painter’s palette and Flamingo Plant. Unfortunately, calcium oxalate crystals in the plant can be very detrimental to any cat’s health and so they are classified as toxic by the ASPCA.
The sun star is a lesser-known but equally attractive orange flowering plant, also known as the Orange Star or Star of Bethlehem. These indoor varieties are great for brightening up corners of your home but sadly are very toxic for cats and dogs. Even water from their vase can lead to toxicosis in pets.
You may have noticed that house plants generally consist of species of the Dracaena genus. This is because they consist of no-fuss shrubs and succulents that can survive under almost any condition. But no matter how attractive, Dracaena should be kept away from a house with pets. Eating dracaena can lead to toxic reactions like diarrhea and vomiting consisting of blood, and lethargy.
You might have seen cute pictures of koala bears munching on eucalyptus leaves and thought they must be safe around your furry pets too.

Iris flowers take their name from the Greek word meaning rainbow which is symbolic of the vast variety of colors they are found in nature. The showy flowers are enough to dazzle your entire front yard or porch. Unfortunately, though, most varieties of Irises are moderately toxic for cats. For example, the Butterfly iris, Water flag, snake lily are poisonous varieties to name a few.
Tomato plants are a tricky one. While your kitten can safely munch on ripe tomatoes, it’s the stem, leaves, and unripe fruit that contains the toxins unsafe for consumption. The solanine compounds in the stem and leaves are toxic for small animals.
As mentioned before, all lilies including the Lily ‘Stargazer’ or Oriental variety are very poisonous. It’s safe to say you should avoid any kind of lilies in a house with cats.
Crotons have bright red, yellow, and green leaves that can stir curiosity in any kitten. But you should know to keep your cats away from Croton since any kind of chewing, biting, or munching can lead to burning sensations, rashes, and diarrhea.
The Wandering Jew
The wandering jew or the Inchplant is part of the spiderwort species and has unique green and maroon leaves. You can place them in a pot to stun guests but sadly it is toxic to cats and hence a big no for homes with these pets. The sap can harm the digestive tract of your pets.
Kalanchoe is unique succulents that bloom tiny flowers similar to a baby’s breath. Also known as Widow’s thrill and Mother of Millions, this plant can cause gastric problems and even abnormal heartbeat in cats, Keep these toxic ones well out of reach of kittens.

Yuccas are a rare sight and are only found in certain parts of the Americas and the Caribbean. This attractive cane consists of white waxy flowers and is mostly stem-less.

What Plants can kill a cat?
While we have listed the mild to moderately toxic ones above, it is important to take note of the ones that have the most adverse effects, including possible death, if ingested by cats and kittens. Here is the full list.
Now here’s one flower to steer completely clear of – Easter Lilies. The entire thing, including leaf, stems, and pollen can prove to be fatal since it causes acute kidney failure. Even the water of the vase where the Easter lilies are kept should be kept well away from cats. If you have any suspicions your cat might have ingested some pollen or any part of the Easter lily, contact your veterinarian immediately. Signs that your pet might have ingested it include vomiting, lethargy, depression, hiding, dehydration, and frequent urination.
Unfortunately, those beautiful hydrangea bloomers can be toxic to most pets. However, most species of hydrangeas will prove harmful to your pets if ingested in large quantities. The presence of amygdalin is troublesome for humans and pets because it metabolizes and becomes cyanide in the human and feline bodies.
Hyacinths are beautiful bright flowers that have a sweet smell but these bulbous plants will be dangerous to keep around our furry friends. Their bulbs contain a high level of toxins that can be fatal very quickly.
White and pink azaleas are flowers that everyone is looking to plant because of their attractive appearance and unique petal texture. However, we must tell you that azaleas can be very toxic to cats and even goats and dogs! So it’s safe to keep them away from a home with pets or a farm.

Dieffenbachias come in many types like charming dieffenbachia, dumbcane and exotica. Even with their impressive leaf design, they should be avoided in any home with pets since they are highly toxic and can cause burns and irritation if ingested or even licked by your furry friends.
Holly is a huge family of 480 species and some examples of the members are Japanese holly, common holly, American holly, and Yaupon holly. Although every house is incomplete without some holly in the festive season, it is severely toxic to cats, dogs, and even humans, if ingested.
Will cats eat poisonous plants?
Cats are usually alert creatures and stay away from poisonous plants thanks to their olfactory powers. However, it is the younger kittens that you must supervise thoroughly and ensure their protection from toxic ones. It’s usually grass that cats like to nibble on, but there’s no telling what they’re in the mood for so better be safe than sorry and keep only non-toxic plants.
