It should be said that most cats will not eat plants outdoors, as long as grass is available. However, occasionally, out of boredom or curiosity, a cat may nibble a leaf or stem. From personal experience, I have shared my home at one time or another with over 40 cats, and I have yet to lose one from ingesting harmful plants.

Still, if you're of the "safe rather than sorry" frame of mind, as I usually am, you need to know which plants are potentially harmful, and by what degree.

Pictures shown on the following pages depict some of the more popular plants toxic to cats. This is not an exhaustive list - for that, see the ASPCA's Toxic Plants List. Let's take a walk through this lovely but potentially lethal garden for cats.
