Good list, it's funny my cats love to sit by my onions that are growing in the back yard. Luckily they don't want to nibble on the green tops.

Star and Flag! Awesome thread. Practicality prevails here along with compassion and morality!
As well, recently acquired a new kitten, and an ample courtyard for him to run. . .and in deciding some landscaping options, I had recently decided on juniper bushes. . .and now, not so much.
I mean, if you saved a kitten's life today. . .how cool are you!?

Thank you everyone, for your replies.

Glad to know I may have saved a kitty! Honestly, nearly every plant I had outside was toxic to mine and I didn't know it. I was ignorant to these things so I wanted everyone else to be aware. Elephant ear is another btw. There are many more but these are only the top 10 per that one vet.

Thats STRANGE I have one cat that is practically a vegetarian, been eating raw potatoes for years, will willingly nibble on the chives growing in the window sill any day of the week, Strange that he is still here, who would have thought.

Wow, Rossa,
It would appear someone was looking out for your kitty 0 ) ! Glad that this never affected him...
Better safe than sorry, I always say. I'd keep them at bay from those chives.
Grr... mine just got in my potted plant, dumped the dirt on the end table, and wet! Had to clean that up
...lol but I still love him! Wouldn't trade either of my critters for the world.

I knows the kittehs loves the mint plant!!! They run into the patio and make a bee line to the mint. Rub in it, roll in it, eat it, then come inside and become a walking mint stick... at least it makes the house and their breath smell minty fresh...

Thanks again.

Tis ok. I understand. You are really right and yes I DO realize there are mean people in this world..

But at the same time folk should be aware of this. I feel this might have been what contributed to my last cats demise : Can't say for sure though. I wasn't aware of all the toxicities in my yard. I feel that the kitties ''slaves'' should know these things

Thanks for the reply . Will have to try the mint too and see if mine like it..

Tis strange my two cats have differences in what is pleasing to their pallettes.
One of my previous cats liked green salad olives and acted like they were catnip or something. The two I have now do NOT like them. Cat's are like people too...or actually I should say I'm more like a cat. lol We have so much in common.

Continue loving and keep them out of harms way !
They are part of our family: We have to nurture and protect

I agree – all cats are very different. I have 11 and each one has a different personality and meow. My kitties are always into something so even though I would love to have house plants I keep all my plants outside. If I kept the plants inside they would not only eat the plants but also use them instead of their litter pans. You listed raw potatoes plants as one of the poisons – do you know if that includes sweet potato vines?

Wow 11! You sound like my sis , she has 8 right now. If I could , I would have a zoo of them if I could afford to.
Yeeah I hear ya about the indoor plants lol, if our 3 litter boxes are the least bit used, they will resort to the potted plants. Still love them though! PS They say to have 1.5 litter boxes per ea. cat. So for my 2, I have 3,

I'd say ALL potatoes ,, even sweet is my guess. a potato is still a potato
