If you have little furry cats around you house, then this post if for you. In Arizona it is dangerous to let you cats outside, so our cats are considered indoor animals. That means you have to be aware of any potted flowers or plants that you bring into the home. If you want to pot up some plants it is best to google it to see if they are toxic to cats or not.
When it comes to cats wanting to use your potted plants as a litter box we suggest you cover the top soil with pot shards, colored rocks or toothpicks. Anything works that the cats don't want to touch their feet and makes them uncomfortable.
Now we want to talk about the substance of this post and that is to create a indoor cat garden just for your little furry indoor friends. By planting things like cat grass you can cure their craving for greens. This gives them a chance to eat the leaves that are both healthy and tasty to them without any issues. But don't just pot up food, make it decorative and fun so that everyone not only the cats get to enjoy looking at it.
Here are some plants that we recommend. Cat grass, Catnip, Parsley, Mint & Rosemary all work great. Select a low bowl garden container so that the cats can reach the plants without having to climb or jump. Make sure the flowerpot is wide and low so that it can't be knocked over.
Top the soil with decorative rocks and little figurines to create a cute look that is both playful and functional. The rocks will keep the cats from using it as a litter box. Place the pot in a sunny window and keep the soil moist so that the herbs will grow and not dry out. Then stand back and watch your little ones gather and enjoy!
