Both of my cats love to chew on plants, which for the most part is just an iiritation, however once the gentleman below decided to bring me some garlic which (as you definitely know) is highly poisonous to cats. Meaning that he clearly doesn't value his safety when it comes to flora.
I wanted more indoor plants but now knowing my two cats and their attitude to risk taking I wanted to make sure they were safe. After re-homing the Peace lilly's (poisonous) I tried going to garden centres. I ended up wandering around garden centres and cross refrencing botanical plant names to the ASPCA poisonous plant list. There had to be a better way the data already existed, it just wasn't easily surfaced.
I checked out Patch one day (probably an instagram advert) and noticed that on some of their pages they were already showing whether a plant was poisonous or not. What they didn't have was an easy way to serach or browse for safe plants.
@hellopatch Hey, ❤️ the idea, but please add this filter! It would mean a lot less reading for me! pic.twitter.com/z4uSjv6Uh4— Stiven Skyrah (@StivenSkyrah) June 29, 2017
Patch took it on and made it work for everybody.
