    in light of recent events as well as a new rise in creating nazi ocs I think this post is an important one to have on your blog if you stand behind your jewish followers or are jewish yourself.

    my cat died from lilies years ago so I will always share this stuff

    Poinsettias actually aren't any more toxic to cats than most household plants. The idea that they're highly toxic is a myth and it would take your cat eating A LOT for there to be any serious issues.

    The rest of these plants are accurate though and I want to stress the lilies especially. Lilies are one of the most common ornamental plants for people to keep in their homes and also one of the most dangerous for cats; even licking a bit of pollen from their fur or drinking water from the vase can cause a cat to experience fatal kidney failure. If you have cats, just don't bring lilies into your home at all. It's not worth it.

    That includes daylilies, tiger lilies, Easter lilies, and tulips, which are often included in lists of "safe" plants but are absolutely not safe. Tulips are part of the lily family and just as toxic to cats.

    Poinsettias are not very toxic to cats, but the milky white sap found in poinsettias contains chemicals called diterpenoid euphorbol esters and saponin-like detergents. If ingested, these substances will cause digestive upset, such as vomiting, drooling, or rarely, diarrhea may be seen. If the milky sap is exposed to skin, dermal irritation (including redness, swelling, and itchiness) may develop. Rarely, eye exposure can result in mild conjunctivitis (“pink eye” secondary to inflammation). Signs are self-limiting and don’t require medical treatment unless severe.

    Showed the kids on my hike today how to eat the goo from honey locust seed pods but told them that without their parents present to consent, I couldn’t allow them to sample it.

    “But I’ll eat it,” I said, “Because I forgot to bring lunch today and I need the calories.”

    The kids collectively took this to mean that they should attempt to forage for me and feed me with the bounty of the forest, so for the rest of the hike I had children shoving nuts and berries and leaves in my face like “Eat this! Eat this!” and each time I had to be like, no, that’s inedible, no, that needs to be washed and cooked, no, I can see the mold on that, no, those contain a deadly poison that will kill my body in terrible ways if I eat it. Thank you of thinking of me but please stop trying to make me eat poison.

    I would have simply eaten those offerings, a little poison never hurt anyone

    Poison very much does kill people. I see what you’re getting at and you’re absolutely 100% wrong
