SF Good Questions: How Can My Pets and Plants Coexist?

AT:SF, Hello all! I have a lot of houseplants in my home, and looking up some information on the internet, I've found out that most of my plants are toxic to pets...

...I baby my plants and love them (the ones that have survived so far...). I don't have any pets, but at one time I had a cat in my previous home, but at that time, I had no plants. I keep toying with the idea of getting another cat (preferably) or dog, but I don't want to have them get sick... and I also don't want to give up my plants. I've noticed in some of the homes at AT, that loads of plants and pets coexist. How do you manage that? Any tips? Thanks in advance!

Judy,

Our answer to that dilemma has always been to only have houseplants that aren't toxic to pets. We're not sure what other people do...

Anyone?
