Easter Lilies and Your Pets

This year we will celebrate Easter on Sunday, April 16th. For many of us it is a special day to spend with friends and family eating, laughing, and celebrating. It's also a great time to purchase an Easter lily!  In fact, lilies make the perfect hostess gift!   Blumz carries a wide selection of everyone's favorite Easter plant but before you grab a lily, you need to make sure that it is safe for your pets!

We did the research for you and we are happy to say that as long as you do not have a feline the lilies are fine! But, if you have a kitty you might want to rethink your choice.  Lilies are safe for all animals except for cats. This is the offical statement form the Society of American Florists:

"The National Animal Poison Control Center says certain types of lilies can cause renal failure in cats that have ingested any part of the lily. SAF recommends keeping lilies out of the reach of cats. It is important to note that lilies do not pose a problem for other pets or humans".

So, if you or the person you are purchasing a lily for has a cat its time to rethink your purchase! 
Give us a call at (248) 398-5130 / (313) 964-5777 or visit our website to order something special today!
