I love plants and have several Silk hanging plants, as I have heard that plants are not good for cats. But I would prefer the real ones. Besides I understand that they also keep oxygen in the air. I do have some places where I can put them up really high, but would love to have one of those tree plants in the corner. Let me know what you think. Thanks.

How about a hanging spider plant. If the cat reaches it though be prepared for a number of bites from the leaves. They love these plants and sometimes I just take a leaf off and leave it for my cat to chew on.
These plants look beautiful and help to clean the air in your home.

Q: What type of outdoor plants are safe for cats?

There are many outdoor plants safe for cats. It would probably be easier to look at list of plants known to be toxic to cats. The Cat Fanciers' Association has a fairly extensive list of poisonous plants on their website, www.cfainc.org/articles/plants.html
The Animal Poison Control Center pages of the ASPCA's website offers two lists-one for plants that are safe and one for plants that are toxic to companion pets. www.apcc.aspca.org Click on the link entitled, Make Your Pet's Home Poison Safe,' for links to lists of toxic and non-toxic plants.
I just googled "plants poisonous to cats/pets". (02/16/2006)
Here is another (there a number of them).
We planted a tiny plant, catnip! (perhaps also called catmint?) Looks similar to a herbal mint, also gets lilac colored flowers before seeding, pleasant smell when crushed. That tiny plant grew & grew into an enormous tall 'bush' in one summer! The cats love it! Can also cut it & bring it in to dry & save. I read it does lose potency over time when being stored.
