Indoor Plants: How Do You Keep Your Cats Away?

Many of us enjoy a little greenery around the house, but hen you are a pet lover, that can be easier said than done. I am constantly shifting around my plants and to try and manage a situation with my cat who just can't stay away. Today there are tons of new products and methods to help repel your cats, but which are the most effective?

My kitten is like most cats. She loves attention and really loves chewing on anything green she can find! We've tried every (humane) trick in the book. Making noise, clapping our hands — we even tried my least favorite method — the spray bottle. Nothing has worked and I can't stand squirting my little cat, so I've resorted to moving the plants to areas she can't possibly reach. However, this results in little to no sun for my happy greens!

What has worked for you to keep your kitties away from your plants? Are there any great safe & humane methods I can try?
