Cat Menace

My cat has taken it upon himself to terrorize my poor plants! I found my staghorn fern out of the pot and on the ground this morning and my money tree is also out of the pot! I am at a loss of what to do :( Please help! I don't want to give up on being a plant parent!

Any advice would be great!

    Chelsea Hmmm... I’m trying to think what got my cat to stop doing this.. how old is he? My cat did this when he was a kitten, but grew out of this phase. If your cat is already older, I think course correcting might take some work but be necessary here! Try putting your plants in a secure spot during the night (bathroom with a closed door maybe?). Then during the day when you’re around, I’d leave a spray bottle in close proximity, and give him a quick squirt when you see him messing with the plants. It seems harsh, but they only way I’ve gotten my guy not to be a total terror is associate the bad behavior with his energy: water. Hope this helps :/
