Can you tell me if Cyperus Egyptian papyrus) is poisonous to cats? When I did a web search, your site came up, yet I don't find it on your list. I'm keeping my fingers crossed it's okay, as we just adopted 2 young cats from a shelter, and they are curious and into everything. (Our former cats have all died at ripe old ages, and never bothered the plants.) Sadly, I see on the Web that ALL my houseplants are labelled as toxic or poisonous: my big old jade plant, geraniums, etc. I'll start over. But I hope hope my water plant papyrus (kept in our little outdoor fishpond all summer) can now safely be returned to a sunny indoor windowsill. THANK YOU FOR THIS SITE!

Hi!

All cyperus are poisonous to cats. Cats may not show any symptoms at first but the poisonous effect of these plants are cumulative(toxins accumulate in liver) and may cause kidney and liver problems.

It is outrageous that many flower shops sell these plants as "cat grass" for cats and other animals to eat.

I'm sorry to hear that all your houseplants were labelled as toxic. But thankfully there are many plants that are safe to cats.:)

Visit http://www.aspca.org/pet-care/poison-control/plant... and find out which are safe and which are toxic.
