Mystery Plant shipped to us?

Asked September 27, 2016, 8:39 PM EDT

So about 4-5 months ago my biology teacher was teaching us about Mimosa plant stimulus and ordered some seeds for said plant off of a large selling company on Amazon. The seeds took a long time to arrive and when they did, we planted them only to learn they were NOT mimosas. I've been growing this plant for a while now and the time has come to move it, but I need to know if it is poisonous to my cat or not. Any suggestions?

Williamson County Texas celosia

It's a Cockscomb (Celosia), a member of the Amaranth family. It is not poisonous to cats. For more information see: http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/newsletters/hortupdate/hortupdate_archives/2006/apr06/Celosia.html
