I feel your pain. I too love houseplants, but have inherited 4 rescue cats who believe that I have just bought them a new toy when I bring a plant inside. I have also tried all suggested "paws off" remedies to no avail. So, I am relegated to garden on the back deck and front porch, even though I know that a tall bird of paradise would look fantastic in my living room. Sigh.

I have 2 male cats and they might occasionally chew the tip of the leaves on a plant but they very rarely make a mess and kill my plants. I'm so glad they aren't destructive. One is a rescue and the other we have had since he was 8 weeks old and we leash train them both. So they know better!
