What Are The Best Plants To Deter Cats?

Good Question

Q: Does anyone have good recommendations for plants that cats will stay away from? I have a smallish patio and tried last summer to grow a bunch of my own herbs and vegetables, but my two newly adopted kitties ate and/or dug up all of them! So this summer I need to change gears. I have already accepted that growing food probably isn't the best way to go, but it's all I've ever planted so now I am at a bit of a loss. My patio faces South so it gets a LOT of sunlight...I also want to make sure that none of my plants are actually poisonous to my little furballs. (I have this same problem indoors, they eat every green thing, so indoor plant suggestions are welcome as well!)
