While keeping them alive may be an entirely different story, I have always had a thing for houseplants. I love the instant breath of life they bring into a space; the touch of nature that makes you feel good to be in its presence.
It wasn’t until I adopted my cat a few years ago, though, that I realized how many of them can be toxic to animals. While I personally haven’t ever heard of a pet becoming sick after eating a houseplant, some are known to actually be fatal, so it’s best to be as safe as possible!
Here are my 5 favorite plants that, according to the ASPCA, are totally safe for pet owners – I have each one of these in my home right this minute!
If you fall in love with a plant and it happens to be unsafe for animal ingestion, you can always hang it! Just make sure that it’s securely hung and that there’s no possible way for your pet to come in contact with it.
Have any pet-safe plants to add to the list? Please share!
