Hi! This pic reminded me that someone once told me that these are poisonous to pet cats, and so we daren't even use them as decor at Christmas. Do you, perhaps, know if there is any truth in this? Welcome, and Best Wishes!

It's actually not that toxic David - however if it's eaten, poinsettias may sometimes cause diarrhea and vomiting in animals and humans. Also, anyone sensitive to latex may suffer an allergic reaction, but that's about it!
