Some also choose non-toxic, non-allergenic, pet-safe houseplants to keep them safe.

In this article, I’ll share the best cat-safe houseplants and how to create a safe home environment. You’ll also learn how to recognize and manage plant toxicity symptoms in cats.

Houseplants are a popular way to beautify your home. But, many common houseplants can be toxic to cats if ingested. 

To help keep your furry friend safe and healthy around indoor plants, follow these tips:

Choose cat-safe plants

Research indoor plants safe for cats and dogs to ensure the safety of your furry friend. 

Some examples include:

  • Spider Plant
  • African Violet
  • Boston Fern
  • Nest Fern
  • Calathea Orbifolia
  • Ribbon plant
  • Chinese money plant (Pilea peperomioides)
  • Staghorn fern
  • Bamboo Palm

  • Monstera (Swiss cheese plant)
  • Date Palm
  • Lilies
  • Daffodils
  • Tulips

To learn more about plant safety, refer to The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).

Monitor your cat’s behavior

Observe your cat’s interaction with plants when introducing a new one into the house. Limit your cat’s access to plants if they show excessive interest or if your cat is prone to chewing on objects.

Ensure a healthy, balanced diet

A well-balanced diet will support your cat’s health. It will also make them less prone to ingest non-food items like plants out of curiosity.

Recognize plant toxicity symptoms

Be aware of potential symptoms of plant poisoning in cats, including:

  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Lethargy
  • Decreased appetite
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Seizures

If you recognize any of these symptoms, seek veterinary advice immediately.

Take action for severe toxic reactions

Some toxic plants can lead to severe symptoms that need hospitalization or therapies. 

If your cat shows signs of severe symptoms, take your cat to the vet as soon as possible. Signs may include difficulty breathing and seizures.

Providing Your Cats With Enrichment and Mental Stimulation

Enrichment and mental stimulation are crucial for cats’ physical and emotional well-being. 

Outdoor exploration and playtime are great sources of stimulation. But indoor enrichment through houseplants can also offer a safe and beneficial alternative. 

Here are some ways in which houseplants can provide mental stimulation for cats:

Interactive plants

Selecting plants that engage cats can be beneficial for their mental stimulation. 

Plants that mimic the motion of prey can excite cats and trigger their hunting instincts. An example of an interactive plant is a Spider Plant.

Catnip and Cat Grass can also be sources of entertainment, as cats can nibble on them, roll around, and play.

Natural environment

Cats are naturally drawn to anything that mimics their outdoor environment. Houseplants that provide hiding spots or climbing opportunities can be stimulating for cats. 

They will enjoy larger plants like Palm trees and ferns that create a jungle-like atmosphere.


Cats have a highly developed sense of smell and can be stimulated through scents. They enjoy plants like Rosemary, Lavender, and Mint with strong and appealing smells. 

These scents can help calm your cat or provide an extra sensory experience.

Visual stimulation

Visual cues also stimulate cats. Plants with different textures, shapes, and colors can provide a visual experience. 

Plants with unique leaf patterns can provide an exciting and attractive visual component. Examples are the Calathea or Rattlesnake plant.

The movement of leaves on a Ficus Tree can also be a great source of entertainment for cats.

Creating a Cat-Friendly Home Environment

When selecting cat-friendly houseplants, it’s essential to focus on your pet’s safety. 

Here’s a guide to help you create a cat-safe environment:

Placement of plants

Place your houseplants out of your cat’s reach. Hang baskets from secure hooks or use elevated shelves or plant stands. 

Creating barriers will prevent your cat from accessing the plants. It will also reduce the risk of nibbling or knocking them over.

Potting considerations

Choose sturdy pots made of ceramic or metal. Doing so will avoid breakage if accidentally knocked over. Also, avoid plastic pots that cats may chew on. 

Moreover, be cautious with potting soil and fertilizers. Opt for pet-safe soil and organic fertilizers.

Be aware of toxic parts

Research each plant and identify which parts are toxic to cats. 

Ensure these parts are not accessible to your cat. Trim or remove any toxic parts if necessary. 

Pay attention to trailing plants or with tendrils that may tempt your cat to chew.

Create a barrier

Use mesh, wire, decorative fencing, or repurposed baby gates if your cat is persistent. Doing so will enclose your plants and prevent your cat from reaching them.

Provide alternatives

Offer safe alternatives such as cat grass to deter your cat from chewing on houseplants. 

It satisfies their urge to nibble and keeps them away from harmful plants.

Increase vertical options

Cats love to climb and explore. Provide vertical options like cat trees, shelves, or window perches. It will redirect their attention and engage them in cat-appropriate activities.
