Cats and allergies to plants

Plants may cause blistering or itching of the mouth and gums.

Sneezing and eye problems can also be caused through contact with plants.
Contact with the leaves of food plants such as tomato, strawberry, rhubarb, parsnips, carrot, celery, marrow and cucumbers can cause irritation.
Geranium and Primula leaves can also cause similar skin problems.
Many plants that are poisonous when eaten may also have the potential to cause skin irritation on contact with their leaves or sap.
