Try growing some grass just for your cat to eat. Many cats love to chew on grass. (Perhaps it aids in digestion.) They love oat grass, wheat grass, barley, etc. You can buy little containers at pet stores. Or buy the unsprouted grain at natural food stores. Plant it in a soilless seed starting mix, keep moist, and place in sun. With a little training and encouragement, most cats can learn that the grass is theirs; the spider plant is yours!
