I have a new kitten at home. He has a great personality and everything, but he's also a lot of work. Today alone he's ripped cheese off my plate, eaten a sheet of toilet paper, and gobbled up every crumb to hit the floor. Another favorite pastime of his is chewing on my plants, and I have quite a few. Telling him no works when I'm in the room, but I'm not always around. Most of all though, I want him to stay safe, because some plants can be toxic for cats. After doing some research, I learned I had one that was not good for animals. I put it away on a high shelf immediately, but decided to replace it in my living room.
As I started hunting for new options online, I came across Bloomscape and fell in love with some of their choices. The plant retailer's site has a pet-friendly section, which is helpful to someone like me who knows nothing about plants. I selected a cute fern in a black pot that matches the decor in my home. Within days it showed up in a cute box. The packaging is so smart and makes sure the plant won't get ruined in transit. It even comes with thorough instructions, so I know exactly how to care for it. It's truly a no-fuss way to invest in a new plant. All you do is order, unpack, and enjoy.
Now I can rest easy knowing that if my cat decides to chew plants when I'm not around, none of the ones he can get to will make him sick. If this sounds like a solution you've been looking for, keep reading. Ahead, I curated a list of my favorite pet-friendly options. Take a look.
