How to Care for Plants

Are Indoor Plants Toxic For My Cat or Dog?


Nothing creates a beautiful & comfortable indoor space like having both plants and pets. The combination of peace & loving energy is just so nourishing.

With cats and dogs occasionally being a little greedy, they could take sly nibbles of your beautiful plants, thinking they have hit the food jackpot.

It’s easy to forget that some popular indoor plants are toxic to pets like cats & dogs. 

The perfect way to get around this is to keep your beautiful but toxic plants high up off the floor. Pop it on a coffee table, shelf, counter top…

Or just do the traditional embarrassing pet owner voice whilst you tell your cat or dog “No, no Poppet this is not food. No”, followed by the classic sausage index finger wag.
