The exact toxin in lilies that is poisonous to cats hasn’t been identified yet. It’s important to note that all members of the Lilium group produce a chemical that is present in ALL parts of the Lily which makes them TOXIC to cats.
They are extremely poisonous and a cat can suffer fatal kidney failure from just nibbling foliage, licking pollen off its coat or even drinking water from a jug with cut lilies in it.

If you live with cats – keep lilies out of your household!
