Easter is just a few days away. Folks love to dress up for the first holiday of the spring season. That applies, not only to themselves, but homes and offices. Brightly colored flowers are symbolic of the renewal that springtime brings. Lilies are popular in holiday arrangements. If there's a cat in your life, be extremely careful. Easter lilies can kill your feline friend. A report from Wide Open Pets says just minimal exposure to lilies can cause kidney failure in cats. They recommend banning lilies from your home if a cat is present. We have a cat in  our home. My fiancee is a professional horticulturist, and provided the idea for this story.
