Plants Non-Toxic to Pets

Posted by kaye820 z9 Houston (My Page) on

Hello my friends. I'm a retired senior living in a tiny apartment with no access to a garden, and I'm starved for something green inside. However, I have a cat that seems impervious to botanical toxins, in that he has tortured and killed several african violets as well as 3 pots of sanseveria that I thought indestructable. Any ideas on plants I can bring inside for MY psychological benefit that might be safe for nibbling by my annoyingly curious kitty? Thanks to all for your kind suggestions.

Hi Kaye!

Sounds like you could benefit equally from something that prevents your cat from accessing your plants. I had a kitty for 12 years who absolutely could NOT stop herself from digging, eating, tearing up, knocking over my plants.

I've attached a link to a beautiful little device that solved most of my problems.

As for selecting non-toxic plants and flowers? You might try the Pets forum.

Holy cow, that is amazing and is something I never thought of. What a great idea, and I thank you a bunch for bringing the plant box to my attention. And the best part is there is an Ikea store about 5 miles away, and I'm on my way there.

("So, my sweet Leo, you may look but you may not touch.") He may be unhappy at first, but I have soooo many trinkets awaiting feline destruction.

Great idea, Karen..We had a kitty that would go fishing in our aquarium , be it a 50 gallon tank or a gold fish bowl, kitty would find a way to get to the fish. I wish I had known about the double barrier green house at that time
