Tips for keeping a safe and green home with cats and plants

Are you a cat and plant lover? Getting them to live together in harmony can be a challenge, but with the right advice, your home can be safe and full of life. Here we give you a detailed guide to achieve it.

Safe plants for cats

It is essential to choose non-toxic plants for your cats. Some safe options you can consider are:

  • Mint: an aromatic plant that cats love and is safe for them.
  • Boston Fern: A non-toxic houseplant that adds a touch of freshness to your home.
  • Carnation of the air: resistant and easy to care for, ideal for spaces with cats.
  • Bamboo palm tree: an exotic and safe plant that can add a tropical touch to your home.

Tips to protect your plants

In addition to choosing the right plants, take steps to protect them and maintain a balance at home:

  1. Place toxic plants in places inaccessible to your cats. Use high shelves or hanging pots.
  2. Introduce catnip. This plant will attract the attention of your cats and keep them away from the others.
  3. Provide natural light to your plants. Place them near windows so they grow healthy and strong.
  4. Establish specific zones for your plants. Use high shelves or terrariums to separate them from your pets.

Maintain a harmonious balance

The coexistence between cats and plants can be enriching. Try to spend time playing with your cats and keeping them entertained so they are distracted from the plants. Also, perform regular checks to make sure all plants are safe and healthy.

With these tips, you can enjoy a safe, green and lively home, where your cats and plants coexist in perfect harmony. May your home be an oasis of tranquility and beauty for all its inhabitants!
