Ask Seth: Lilies and Cats

Are Asiatic lilies in the same family as others when it comes to cats? I just planted an Asiatic lily in my garden last week. I didn't know that they are poison for cats. I've never heard of the Asiatic lily and it looks nothing like the other varieties. I have a neighbor's cat that has decided to hang out in my front yard. He's about six years old and has never touched any plants of any kind. Please tell me I don't have to dog up my beautiful plant. My cats live inside so they can't get to it. (I do have a couple that will chew on anything.) Thank you, Patricia Borst
