I thought this was important to share! Flowers and plants add beauty to any holiday, and they make great holiday gifts. But if your family includes pets, you may want to learn which plants are safe and which ones you need to avoid.

Ever since my Gussy evicted our rubber tree so HE could have the pot it was in, I haven't tried to have houseplants at all. So it's safe to say that my cats are not at the slightest risk of being poisoned by eating toxic plants.

Just like little kids. The cats and dogs keep putting things in their mouths... Take care of the kids, both human and animal!
