Safe plants for your cat

Cats are notorious nibblers. The world of houseplants can be a minefield for us - some flowers are toxic to cats and they can get into real trouble by eating them. Fortunately, there are some plants that have beneficial effects on our furry friends.


If you want to fill your home with greenery that also has a positive effect on cats, be sure to read the following lines:

1. Catnip

Catnip is one of the most popular cat plants. Due to its high content of stimulants, it has a positive effect on our furry friends, reducing their stress and improving their mood. In addition, it is very easy to grow from seed. So head to your nearest garden shop and start growing it!

2. Chamomile

Chamomile is not only a favourite plant with us humans, even cats like it very much. Its daisy-like flowers look great on the window, so don't think twice and get yourself and your kitty a couple of these beautiful plants.

3. Lemongrass

Another safe plant includes lemongrass. Grass in general is very popular in the feline realm - not to mention when they spend long hours hunting and resting in it. Most pet stores also offer so-called cat grass - your furry friend will enjoy that too.

4. Mint

Any plant in the mint family is a magnet for cats, and peppermint is no exception. As with humans, peppermint has beneficial effects on feline digestion. Another bonus is that the minty aroma repels mice.

5. Fresh herbs

Keeping your kitchen well stocked with herbs will delight not only you, but your cat as well. Herbs are rich in vitamins, so if you want to contribute to the positive health of your furry friend, get at least a few pieces of herbs in a pot.

6. Valerian officinalis

In human medicine, valerian is sought after for its beneficial effects on sleep. In cats, however, it has the opposite effect - chewing this plant will cause them to become excited, sometimes ending in an almost trance-like state. If your furry friend suffers from obesity, valerian is one way to get her moving naturally!

7. Celandine

The celandine or spider plant is also a very popular plant in the cat kingdom. Little tigers are impressed by its long leaves, which respond lazily to their patting.

8. Licorice root

Licorice root is very easy to grow in the garden, but it also thrives in a pot at home. The plant itself has beautiful flowers - nibbling on them will also help your cat's digestion and alleviate any allergies she may suffer from. For older cats, it is beneficial for the symptoms of arthritis - it cleanses the blood and thus relieves the symptoms of this disease.
