It’s important to keep in mind that “non-toxic” does not imply “problem-free.” Because plants are not part of their regular diet, some cats may experience slight stomach discomfort if they consume them.

Also, as a cat owner, you should also practice responsible use of products on your plants such as fertilizers, pesticides, and deterrents. Any chemicals used on your plant may cause harm to your cats if they happen to ingest a portion of it with chemical residues.

Cats are frequently let loose in the house, and it’s not uncommon for them to sniff around your lovely plant collection. If you enjoy indoor gardening and decoration, you might put your copper rose in open terrariums or even closed terrariums to protect both parties (plants and cats). Just make sure the container is substantial enough to prevent your cats from tipping it over.

You may also use natural deterrents on your plants to protect them from your cats. Make sure to always read the labels and check the ingredients before using any kind of deterrent on your plants.
