One of my friends has a cat that eats some of her house plants...the leaves. The cat then gets sick and throws up. She is wondering how she can deter her cat from eating some of her house plants.
Any advice is much appreciated. Her cat eats house plants at her Mom's house also.
Thank you:-)

Cats naturally want to eat grass and will spit it up. Doesn't mean anything is wrong. I would suggest she plant some cat grass for them to have to eat.

YES, YOU CAN PLANT SAFE GRASSES FOR THEM TO EAT, BUT THEY DON'T MOVE AS MUCH WHEN YOU BOX THEM WITH YOUR PAWS. HANGING PLANTS ARE ESPECIALLY BAD, WE CAN JUMP VERY HIGH AND BOX THEM. SHREDDED LEAVES ARE VERY PRETTY.
