When Cats Strike: Keeping House Plants Healthy

When Cats Strike: Keeping House Plants Healthy

081309cat-01.jpgWe've received a flower delivery once or twice but unfortunately, the bouquet always has to be hidden. You see, in addition to eating cat food, Garbo (the feline of our house) is a herbivore...

  • We've come home to many a plant destroyed and ripped to shreds all at the hands (or mouth) of our cat. We spotted Christine's solution using cat grass and figured we should try it. By having another plant option in the house that she's allowed to feed on, it might just keep our house plants healthy.
  • Another option is tin foil. We've heard recently (although haven't tried) that cats hate tin foil. You'll have to place a sheet of tin foil underneath your plant that extends six inches. The cat will resist the plant to avoid stepping on the tin foil.

How about our Apartment Therapy readers with cats--how do you keep your animals from terrorizing your plants?
