Our question this week was:

Dr. Jon - Is it okay that my cat eats red roses?

Answer

Hi – thanks for your email Darva. You asked if it is okay that a cat eats red roses. The answer is no.

They are not deadly but can make cats vomit and feel sick. Also the thorns can be harmful if swallowed or stepped on.

I recommend that you keep the flowers out of your cats reach.

Best of luck!
