Indoor plants are a great way to freshen up your home, and to bring in that lush green touch from the outdoors inside. The problem that us pet owners have is that a lot of plants are toxic to cats and dogs. For example, I think Peace Lily’s and Snake Plant’s are beautiful but my cat may get sick if she decides to take a nip at it!
That’s why it’s important for us “fur parents” to pay extra attention when shopping for plants for our home.
When looking for a good houseplant, I also recommend finding one that purifies the air in your home. Indoor plants that clean the air and remove toxins are a great way to freshen things up without using harmful chemicals.
All of the houseplants I have here are safe for cats, and air purifying. As an extra step of precaution, you should always check the scientific names of each plant to make sure it’s exactly what you’re looking for.

Spider Plant | Scientific Name: Chlorophytum Comosum
Bamboo Palm | Scientific Name: Chamaedorea Seifrizii
Boston Fern | Scientific Name: Nephrolepis Exaltata
