The Pet Owner’s Houseplant Guide

One of the most common plant-related questions I am asked is how I am able to have my houseplants and cats coexist. The answer is that there are many plants that are non-toxic to cats and will not injure them if they have a little nosy nibble. By selecting the right plants and placing the tempting ones creatively (because while they aren’t toxic, they still aren’t meant to be ingested), you can live in a cat-friendly, plant-filled home!

We have two unbelievably perfect rescue kitties, Henry and Blanche. Blanche has no teeth and no interest in plants, but Henry loves to munch on leaves. So it’s especially important for me to know what is safe to have around him and what isn’t. So I decided to write an e-book about my pet-safe houseplant research.

The Pet Owner’s Houseplant Guide outlines 15 non-toxic houseplants that I have personally owned and cared for. While I speak specifically about cats, these plants are also non-toxic to dogs. I know that choosing plants can be overwhelming if you’re just beginning to cultivate your green thumb. But I promise that after you finish reading this guide, you will be armed with the knowledge you need to select the perfect plants for your pet-friendly home and help them thrive.

My guide will give you the following for 15 different plants—all from my personal experience:

-52 pages of easy-to-follow care overviews for each plant
-Outlines of different varieties you might want, including photos
-Difficulty rankings to help you choose which plants fit best into your lifestyle and home
-Tons of high-quality photos of each plant to help you choose which one you’d like to add to your collection next

Final cut instructions didn’t correlate with final image step. Specifically, the (j) 1/4 actual board thickness cut doesn’t show on final image step. Only (i) seems to correlate. They should also recommend mitre and table saws while at it. You want your cuts to be on the $$$. Otherwise, it’s a relatively manageable DIY doll house for the crafty and precise.
