It's tough because you don't want to paranoid, but at the same time you want to protect your pets.
My two girls are old enough now that they know better not to munch on strange plants. And even when they were younger, I could have communicated which plants were big no no's.
But pets don't quite work this way. Even with their soulful eyes, they're not human. I've discovered that cats in particular are tempted by plants. They tend to chomp on plants and spit them up.
So I'm giving you the rundown of which plants you should avoid when considering what to grow. Some are worse than others....and some are only "somewhat" toxic if you get my drift.
My focus today is mostly on cats and dogs, probably the two most common pets. Not that I don't love horses, but they aren't the best indoor pets. The poop alone!
Although I once worked with a guy in sales who had indoor/outdoor goats that slept on his couch! Use your imagination on that one...
Anyhow, here's what I learned!
