: ok, well i also belong to a cat board and i posted a question on there reguarding my cats eating my plants. i just brought home a little mini palm yesterday and i know once my cats see it, they will go for it. they love to chew on them. now, i have heard that to keep cats out of the dirt in plants, you can spray vinegar in the soil to keep them out and its ok. now, can i spray a bit of vinegar on the leaves and not kill the plant? i know this will keep them away but i dont want to kill my only house plant. thanks for any help.

Hi Jennifer,

Vinegar is used as a weed killer. I wouldn't suggest spraying in on any houseplants. To keep kitty off the soil, place pine cones, pebbles, small rocks, sweet gum tree balls or anything pr*ckly on the surface of the soil. You could even make a tent or screen out of chicken wire to keep kitty away from the foilage.
