    My cousin has a huge peacelily plant in her kitchen and I admired it for some time before buying one. It stood pride of place on a table in my living room. Oh why did I not realise it is on that list of DO NOT HAVE IN A HOME WITH CATS as I knew of certain plants to avoid but had no idea this one should be banned from the home. I liked the plant but after seeing him nibble the leavesI then put it on top of my freezer and out of Robbie's reach (he has never been up there) but now learn that they don't have to actually chew the leaves to be at risk.

    He has done a lot of chewing the leaves when it was on the table. They must taste good to him.

    It is being binned completely today and I will just make do with my artificial plants. I hate thinking of what might have been and that he may have felt unwell after chewing the leaves.

    :eek:
