Cats & lilies don't mix

I heard about this just recently and couldn't believe it. We have had lilies in the house loads of times not realising how dangerous they are to our precious tomcat. Spread the word.

Cats have a different metabolism so several things harmless to us are dangerous to them. Not only plants, but a lot more:
See this list.

Luckily your tomcat is okay still as I gather it.
Three sounds one should treasure:
the whisper of the wind through the leaves
the songs of one's heart
the callings of the universe

Any small animal vet worth their salt should have information about plants toxic to pets, such as a leaflets, or know of web sites with good information.

Our vets, and they only deal with cats, have posters and leaflets about plants toxic to cats in the waiting room.
May the long time sun shine upon you,
All love surround you,
And the pure light within you,
Guide your way on.
