Cat owners may grieve the loss of their sweet and cherished feline friend. A flower arrangement can honor the special relationship between cats and their humans.   

Cat-safe sympathy flowers

Many cat owners don’t stop at just one cat. In fact, 52 percent of cat owners own multiple cats.

Your first reaction if a cat dies may be to send the owner a bouquet of lilies to express your sympathy. However, lilies could prove detrimental to the remaining cat.

Other popular flowers that are toxic to cats include:

  • Azaleas
  • Chrysanthemums
  • Hyacinth
  • Oleander
  • Tulips

These are just a few, so be sure to look up the toxicity of a given plant before sending it to a cat lover.

Memorial plant

Some people prefer not to get sympathy flowers after the loss of a loved one. It can be hard to watch something else die so soon after losing a beloved pet to death.

A more permanent sympathy gift, like a sympathy plant, can be a kinder gesture. If you know someone who had a cat that liked to go outdoors or who enjoyed looking out the window, you can get a memorial tree or plant.

Your loved one can plant this tree in honor of a late cat and can see it grow as a living memorial to a cherished pet.
