Cats are naturally curious animals. They explore their surroundings and indoor and balcony plants are not excluded. However, this can be dangerous. Because cats also love to nibble on the green. However, many plants are considered harmful to health and toxic to cats.

The good news: Cat owners with a green thumb do not necessarily have to do without plants. There are also cat-friendly specimens.

Find non-toxic house and balcony plants for cats

It is important that you can identify plants accurately in order to identify cat-compatible greens. Ask the gardening trade experts for advice and take no risk.

The safest are plants that are available specifically for cats. If the classic cat grass or catnip are too common for you, you can also use the creeping upholstery or bring some color into your home with the cat gander, thanks to its pink flowers.

These plants are usually available in pet shops and are not only safe for cats, but also suitable as nibble plants.
