Yes, peace lilies are poisonous to cats so you should not have any of these flowers at home. Cats that ingest or chew on the plant may suffer from symptoms like drooling, a loss of appetite, and vomiting. Peace lilies are poisonous to cats because they contain insoluble oxalate, which can irritate the cat’s mouth and throat.

Peace lilies aren’t as dangerous to cats as other types of lilies such as the daylily (which are known for causing kidney failure), but you should still make sure that it isn’t possible for these flowers to be in your cat’s reach. Don’t forget to warn people in advance, especially if they have a tendency to gift you with flowers.
