Why are lilies toxic to cats? — 4 Comments

  1. I also find it hard to believe that the exact chemical component(s) and in depth method of action of the Lilium plant involved in cat toxicity is unknown. Come on! I could find no information regarding an answer to this question either. I agree that any study using cats ingesting lilies is cruel and unethical…just plain wrong. πŸ€”πŸ˜ 

    • I’m like you. I am almost shocked that we don’t have the name of the chemicals and how they damage feline kidneys. The info might be there somewhere but I could not find it.

  2. It’s very scary to see that they haven’t determined what the exact chemicals are that are involved, how they work and what could be done to counter suspected ingestion. Also that this gives cat-haters another means to kill cats; an unintended consequence of simply talking about it.

    • I was thinking the same thing Albert, about cat-haters adding lilies to their arsenal. 😠 But then of course this knowledge is all over the internet. πŸ˜“
