The beauty of the flowering Amaryllis is matched by its toxicity. The Amaryllis contains Lycorine and other noxious substances, which cause salivation, gastrointestinal abnormalities (vomiting, diarrhea, decreased appetite, and abdominal pain), lethargy, and tremors in cats. The bulb of the plant is reputed to be even more dangerous than the flowers and stalk. petmd.com Photo by Frédéricke Boies on Unsplash
