Is there anything you can put in or around pots and planters in the house to keep cats out of them? Thankfully, they don't use them for litter boxes, but they want to EAT them. I love plants but my house is bare. Is there a solution that will keep me, the cats, and the plants happy?

There are some deterrents available (look in the garden center or in a pet store) that you can spray on your houseplants to discourage your cats from playing with and eating your houseplants. Training them to stay away is another option. But, as long as you choose pet-friendly houseplants, your cats won't be harmed and you may decide that a little damage to the plants is worth their happiness. Good luck with your houseplants.
