I really miss having houseplants and cut flowers in the house! My two kitties
love to eat roses and the few non-toxic plants I have tried wound up with chewed leaves and then the inevitable vomit on the floor.

I would love to find a plant that cats don't want to eat.

I have no idea. I am subbing for ideas too. My cats will eat anything, even if it is poisonous.

The only thing we've found that works is putting the plants in places where the cats can't get to them.

From my experience, it depends more on the individual cat rather than the plants. I have a bunch of plants and my cats never bother them but I have had cats in the past that would not leave them alone.

My crazy cats even try to eat fake plants! I can't have a real plant, they can get to everywhere.

How about some wheat grass for the cats?

Maybe they really need greens in their diet?
