Keeping Cats From Eating Houseplants

I love plants, yet have only one in my home and it is hanging. Any other plant that I keep on the counter or coffee table is always eaten by my cat. Is there something I can do to get my cat to stop eating my plants.
I have just planted my seeds indoors for my garden. I need to find a way to get the cat away from my counter tops before the seeds start to grow. Please help.

Your cat is eating the plant because it's diet is lacking in something. You can buy a starter kit to grow grass for cats to eat. Your cat is apparently a strickly inside cat. Cats that have the pleasure of going out side will satisfiy this need by eating grass. Catnip growing in a pot will also give them something to eat. As long as this need is not met they will continue to eat inside plants.
