Question: I have two cats and a dog. What are the safest plants to have around the little guys?
Plants and pets are two of our favourite things but there are definitely some instances where the two don’t live in harmony. While plenty of pets won’t pay an ounce of attention to your indoor jungle, there are certainly some curious creatures that just can’t help but get their noses in the soil or their claws into that beautiful foliage.
There are lots of indoor plants that have a level of toxicity for pets when consumed. Generally the animal would need to ingest a fair amount of the plant to be severely affected but even small amounts of the most toxic plants can cause some damage and discomfort to our furry friends. If you can’t bear to part with a toxic plant just make sure it’s placed up high and out of reach from even the highest of jumpers.
