Yep, house plants. Greens, to be exact. Greens on the floor. I crave me some greens in spring, yet
don't think it's wisest with my rather curious animal.
From other bloggers to the check out woman at HG (homegoods), people have been telling me their cats don't bother their plants. Really? I think in the past i've given my cat too much credit- i would assume if there's a comfy couch or a padded blanket, atop a pile of books would the last place she'd want to sit. Or, i don't know, if there's an entire sunroom with windows a plenty and glass door with unobstructed view, i wouldn't walk in the kitchen to find her on the counter, smooshed behind the kitchen faucet in order to look out the window behind the sink.
Forgive me for not believing she would have the sense to avoid a toxic plant. Some that are toxic don't even have to be eaten, just rubbed against. This cat rubs and gives everything the once over-we don't call her the inspector for nothing. She doesn't bother the plants that i do have (that i know of), but why take that chance? I would imagine yours are inspecting your belongings more than you'd think.
Armed with my 25 page print out from the SPCA on toxic house plants, there were confusing discrepancies at Home Depot. Either i have to go to a nursery or find a good fake one. And you guys-i did, i went for a fake one. Oh, please, pleeeeeeeeaaaaase tell me it looks real.
It was on super clearance at HG, looking totally sad and lonely and on the brink of death with 2 leaves detached. Nothing hot glue can't fix. I actually think the "on the brink of death" look is helping with the realness factor.
Plopped that whole thing in another pot, which gives it believability. Or so i think. And hope.
Clearance lifelike plant (HG)-18.00
Something i can't kill and won't harm the cat-priceless
Do you have any faux greens in your home? Where'd you find them? Because maybe i need more....
