Ways To Protect Your Plants + Your Cat 

1. Place them out of reach on a high shelf or in a hanging planter
2. Add rocks to your top soil to prevent your cat from using it as a litter-box
3. Add some cat-grass or catnip plants to your houseplant collection to divert their attention
4. Surround your cat's favorite plant with prickly cacti or aluminum foil 
5. Spray your plants' leaves with rosemary - most cats aren't fans of the scent 
6. Pot your plants in ceramic, terra cotta, or a planter of an equally substantial material 
7. Put citrus peels in your plant's container 

Unsure where your houseplant stands? We recommend checking online at the ASPCA - and also giving this post on Gardenista a read. You can also browse (and learn more about) some of our favorite pet-friendly houseplant picks on our dedicated Pet Friendly Plants Pinterest Board
