Calming Down From The Holidays …

As we welcome in the new year, lets just go over a few reminders while cleaning up from our holiday festivities.  Flowers and plants are among many families holiday decor that make the holidays pretty, but there are a small amount of plants that if our kritter / pets should eat them wouldn’t be so pretty – possibly even death!

Top Holiday plants and flowers to keep away from our kritters / pets:

  • Mistletoe
  • Holly
  • Poinsettia
  • Amaryllis
  • Lilly
  • Oleander
  • Various Christmas Tree Decor such as tinsel and ornaments

There is a really well written article I found regarding this topic that you can further some reading on by clicking the reference link.  Please continue safety as your number one concern always when dealing with our kritters / pets – safer is better then being sorry we didn’t think or prepare better.
