It happens just like clockwork.

We have exactly one houseplant in the house. It's kept on a table in our entry hall. Muffin (the cat) chooses not to jump on that table because it's small. Hence the location of the plant.

So yesterday, DW moves the plant to put some Halloween decorations on that table. And none of us thought to put the plant back before going to bed.

So this morning I'm greeted by a pile of cat barf with a suspicious green substance very prominent. And the plant is missing half of a few of its leaves.

Every time. <sigh>

PS - The plant is not toxic to animals and is not catnip.

...some Cats really need a bit of vegetation ...

my Riki almost always chews a bit of Kitty-grass before eating her stinky Tunas

Yes, and only by mistake. He chews on any houseplant that's within his reach. And when he does, he almost always throws up anything that he swallowed.

Any suggestions there?

We tried that once. Once. After carefully planting the seeds and tending the kitty grass to get it started, we set it out for Muffin to inspect - just before bed time. The next morning, the grass and soil were spread over half the house. There were no survivors among the kitty grass. We were hoping he'd chew on that and it could be his plant. No such luck.

Yep - that's the grass, but in a different packaging at the time.

At least my son had fun watching the grass sprout and grow. Could be worth it just for that, even if Muffin destroys it once it's given over to him.
