    Hypericum may well be toxic to pets, but hundreds and hundreds of other common plants are too.  Here are a few more for you to worry about.

    I find that cats and dogs normally avoid plants that are toxic. Most poisonings are when human beings somehow create an artificial environment from which they cannot escape, such as bringing lilies into the house and leaving the pollen to fall where it can be ingested by a pet whilst licking its fur.

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.

    I have a Hypericum in the garden and visiting cats haven't gone near it that I've seen. Outdoor cats would have easy access to many poison plants on their travels anyway.
  • I’ve grown lots of hypericum and had lots of cats and dogs ... they’ve never bothered each other 😊
