orchids & cats

i've googled and looked everywhere, but i can't seem to find a website that would tell me if my new orchid is toxic to my kitties... the kind i have is a dendrobium. anyone know if this type is toxic? according to what i've found, it appears that the other orchids out there are listed on the "nontoxic" lists, and i know that dendrobiums can be served on food and is nontoxic to humans, but i guess i'm posting here just to make sure. what do you guys think?

Have you checked with the person you bought it from or your vet? Your vet may have a list of plants poisonous to cats, and you can surely find such lists on the internet.

I don't know about your specific plant, but perhaps one of those things will get you the answer. Good luck!!

great, thanks.

i actually checked this website, and even though they didn't specify my type of orchid, i did happen to see the subtitle to a picture of an orchid that said
"Orchids are safe to have in the home." yippee!

my black orchid has suffered the hunger of the kitties on several occasions -- it's half dead now due to a 7 foot fall where it fell out of it's pot -- but the girls still seem to be alive and kicking even if they've eaten the flowers (it only blooms once a year )

My best friend has always had cats and she has about 30 orchids.
That was a great link to the non toxic plants! I just printed it. THANKS.
