Is That Stoopid Kittin Shredding Toxic Houseplants?

Our newest household addition, affectionately referred to by Banzai as “That Stoopid Kittin” is a handful. When he’s not peeing on the duvet in the master bedroom, he’s annihilating the few houseplants we have inside the house, chewing them to tatters.

This sent me scurrying to re-check the ASPCA list of poisonous plants, just to make sure nothing we had would kill him. (Much to Banzai’s dismay, we didn’t.) But it should always be top-of-mind for any responsible cat owner. One of the easiest ways to inadvertently introduce poisonous plants into the house is via cut flower arrangements. A dinner guest brings over a bouquet and you end up in the wee hours at the¬†emergency vet.

Our friends at Fix.com sent us a helpful infographic that you can print and post on your fridge as a reminder of plants that our toxic to Fluffy. For more info, you can jump over to their blog post “How to Grow Houseplants without Harming Your Pets.” Thanks, Fix!
