Spring is quickly approaching and that means it’s time to start thinking about the plants, both in your home and in your garden. But before you sow just any seed, you need to consider which plants are safe for cats and which aren’t.

Luckily, we’ve got a list for you. Keep reading to learn about 10 plants to avoid – and 10 that are perfectly safe for kitty.

Important Note: This list is not inclusive. If you have questions about a specific plant, be sure to ask your vet before bringing the plant into your home or garden. If you have one of the dangerous plants and/or suspect your cat has ingested it, please remove the plant from your home and take your pet to the vet immediately. Only keep plants you know are safe inside your house and/or in your garden. For further information on more plants that are toxic and nontoxic to pets, please click here.
