Safe indoor plants for cats and dogs

Pets and plants can coexist with these safe indoor plants for cats and dogs!

Chewy puppies and curious cats can make it challenging to create a home that is both beautiful and safe for your pets. Dogs like to chew, cats like to nibble, and a happy tail can cause all sorts of destruction. Honestly, who hasn’t lost a favorite pair of shoes or a vase full of flowers to a playful pet? Because pets have a tendency to chew, many pet parents are hesitant to have houseplants in their homes out of fear of making their pet sick.

Luckily, pet lover and plant lover don’t have to be mutually exclusive. Check out these non-toxic houseplants that are completely safe for cats and dogs. And, if you want to double-check the toxicity of your current plants, visit the ASPCA’s website for a complete list of toxic plants for cats and dogs.
