We love pets! There are few households without at least one. There are around 20 million fish kept in tanks and ponds but the most popular furry creature is a dog, with more than 8.5 million canines in the UK. Next come cats, numbering about 7.5 million feline pets. We also love rabbits and guinea pigs and small caged mammals kept indoors such as hamsters. And then there are feathery friends including chickens, ducks and and caged birds.
It's understandable, therefore, that people like to ensure house plants won't cause any harm to their pets. Particularly cats and dogs that like to chew on greenery. Did you know there's a type of 'cat grass' that is good for your pets? It can be purchased and kept indoors in order to provide a tasty snack.
House plants - particularly those with highly glossy leaves, are sometimes toxic to pets and people. Here we have compiled a selection of house plants that are considered to be non-toxic. This cannot be guaranteed, of course, but as far as we are aware there have been no reports of adverse reaction to pets chewing on the foliage of the plants within this category.
House plants are highly beneficial to health and well-being. They filter toxins from the air, absorb static energy, clean up the environment, soak up pollution and maintain healthy humidity levels. What's more, they calm the soul and promote positive thinking. Many of them are really easy to care for too. Enjoy choosing a non-toxic addition to your home!
