I agree that it's best to remove them from the house. I made the mistake once of putting some flowers on top of the fireplace hearth, thinking the cats wouldn't bother them there. Too bad I didn't consider that the petals would fall off as they aged.....and one of the cats barfed one morning and there was a petal in it! We ended up calling the florist to confirm that it was an Asiatic lily, and since we weren't sure which of the cats ate it, they both spent over 48 hours in the hospital receiving fluids. $1400 later they both came home and we've not seen any repercussions. But it could have been a real tragedy if we hadn't noticed the petal in the vomit
No more flowers in my house
I think lesliek's idea of donating them is a great one!
