Cats and outdoor plants

KarenTarasiaJeanette S


My Himalayan cat Crissy is 2 years old. Lately when I let her outside on the lanai to get some fresh air she starts to eat my plant leaves. She never did before but now I'm afraid to let her outside, and she loves to be out there with me. Does anyone have a list of plants that are deadly to cats? She is most attracted to my passion plant leaves but she'll go after my Christmas cactus. Any info will be appreciated

    Here's a list from the ASPCA , and a few suggestions of how to get them to stop. Good luck!

    I have an indoor cat also. Mine eats my plants when she is not feeling well. It is usually followed up with hacking up a hair ball. One plants I have had to move to the "no cat zone" because she won't leave it alone. But for me a little hairball meds stops her pretty quickly. If this is something new I would check with your vet just to make sure its not some thing more serious.

    I do not have a cat, but my daughter has 2 and she buys grass seeds and plants them for her cats. She gets them at the pet store.

    My girls won't touch the "cat grass" but I periodically buy a few mini "Mondo" or monkey grass plants for them. They also like noshing on a Spider plant I keep around just for them. The Mondo I put in a long planter, which the cats also enjoy laying in/on amongst the greenery.
