My Cats Are Eating My Succulents! Help?

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: Hi! I love having plants in the house, particularly succulents, since they are gorgeous and easy to take care of. However, my cats have picked up the habit of eating them! They aren't toxic plants, thank goodness, but it's not good for them and now my cacti are chewed little stubs. Any suggestions on places to put the plants out of their extremely athletic and acrobatic reach or other ways to make them stop chewing? Thanks!
