Having pets with plants can be challenging sometimes, some cats and dogs like to nipple on some leaves as it's natural for pets to crave for greens. This list contains the top 12 non-toxic common houseplants. These plants will add color and texture to your decor while keeping your cats and dogs safe and happy.

Just because a plant is non-toxic doesn't mean it won't cause a tummy ache so it's still best to avoid the temptation and place all houseplants out of reach because if your pet ever does chew on a plant it might cause health issues, make sure to watch closely for any signs of a negative reaction.
