I grew lilies and also had two cats at the same time. They never had any inclination to go near them.
Not sure that's much help but I think it's possibly one of those slightly misleading 'every plant's going to kill us' type of warnings.
I think that should be banned right away Verd
I certainly don't want to give you incorrect info Sam - but I've never heard of anyone having issues with cats and lilies. I think it's a case of common sense most of the time, and you're probably going about it the right way
Sam with the standard all you need to do now is shorten any long shoots to a rough ball shape. You don't need to be to fussy just yet. As for your perennials, I'd wait a while as its getting a lot colder next week.
