Reply:I bought a pound of whole wheat grains for almost nothing at a feed store and put them in a flat box about six inches deep with potting soil in it. I have to wait until the wheat is about 4 inches tall to put it out for my four to play with. This has got them to leave the other plants alone. They really like it and it cost almost nothing.
Reply:There's some cat plant. I think it's called Chia cat plant. Cats flock around it so buy it already
Reply:These are the safe plants that even if they cause the cat to vomit, they are not likely to harm an otherwise healty cat:





African Violets


Coleus


False Aralia


Ferns


Geranium


Palms


Parsley


Spider Plant -*(I have one book that says that Spider Plants are toxic and another book that says they aren't. To be on the safe side, I wouldn't let your cat eat this kind of plant).*-


Sweedish Ivy





Some cat owners have found that growing grass or fresh catnip in a little pot, just for their pet, satisfies the animal's desires for greenery and keeps their houseplants unmolested.
Reply:Here is the website where you can find a list of them.(Ones which ARE poisonus)

Reply:Well you can get a catnip and cat mint plant just for them so they leave the others alone. Still avoid the poisonous ones, but they'll be thrilled that you got a couple plants just for them.
Reply:I don't know if you've ever heard of it but they have a cat plant called Chia cat plant. It's a special plant that cats like and it's safe. You can find this at Rite Aid, Duane Read, Eckeords, CVS, etc.
