I have a nicotina and I would like to keep it in the house, but I have 2 cats that like to eat plants. I wanted to know if anyone knew if they would be smart enough to stay away from it?

I put them in front of it to see what they would do and they just smelt it and walked away so I think it might be okay, but don't want to wake up to dead cats in the morning. I am going to put it back out in the gh until I get an answer.

Thanks in advance.

Hi onyxwar - maybe ask on the Pets Forum? Lots of knowledgable people there as well as some vets that pop in with answers and advice;o)

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
