Q: I love having fresh flowers and plants in my house, but my two cats always try to eat them! I know some are poisonous, and I never put those types out. I just would like to have a house plant in my home without them eating it! Any suggestions on breaking their habit?
A: I'm so glad you've checked out which plants are poisonous for your pets! Unfortunately, many kitties are drawn to plants as a snack – offer up some safe kitty plants to lure them away from yours. Many cats don't like the feel or sound of aluminum foil under their paws, so try to place that under your plants. If that still doesn't work, try using these home remedies on the mulch or plant:
- Lemon juice and water spray
- Pepper and water spray
- Tea leaves
- Halves of oranges or lemons
- Grapefruit, orange, or lemon-peel shavings
