House Plants vs. Cat
Posted by Vanessa from Ohio on 2006-04-05 11:02:00

I have a cat and every time I have a house plant he eats it. Yesterday a friend gave me a spider plant and within 5 seconds he started to try to eat it. What can I do to get him to stop??

    Make a sun tea of the hottest chili peppers you can find. Those little Thai chilis work very well, so do the Mexican Habeneros. Soak the dried chilies in 1 quart of warm water overnight. Then, spray the chili water onto the plants that your cat is interested in. You can also buy or grow kitty grass for you vegetarinan pussy cat. It sounds as if he is trying to tell you that he needs greens in his diet.
