This brings us to...Growing Indoor Plants Safe for Cats:
When starting a garden, consider the size of the planters - if your cat can fit in on the planter they may use it as a litter box. This is a great planter option, and the kit already comes with grass seeds!
These are pretty cute too and smaller!
Even better would be to include these planters close or next to our favorite cat condos and shelves, mentioned in this blog post.
One last thing, is your cat munching on your other plants?
If you have indoor plants that your cat needs to avoid eating or destroying, a spray with lemon water or coffee acts as a natural and safe cat repellent.
With a little bit of work and love, you can enrich your cat's indoor environment with cat friendly plants. A thoughtful garden is sure to spark your indoor cat’s natural curiosity.
