post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone. I was pondering over this yesterday and decided I would consult tcs members about this! I have a huge list of plants/flowers that are toxic to cats and I would really appreciate a list/link to plants/flowers that are kitty friendly and non toxic (if this even exists)! The only plant I have ever had around my cats are roses... Yes they finick with them but no consumption or ingestion has occured! I already know what isn't safe and now I need to know what is?????

Some are even considered delicasies to cats. The two I know of are the spider plant and the pony tail palm. I can't have a spider plant in my house because it'll be eaten to down to nubs with in weeks!
