    lavender plants

    Hey! I'm new here. Does anybody know if lavender plants are dangerous to cats? I saw one at the nursery this morning and I'd like to have it here in the house but I don't know about Boo Boo. I don't want to take any chances. Can anybody help me? Thanks.

    It doesn't appear on the lengthy list I found here:

    So it may be safe. I have a little lavendar plant by the kitchen door, and I wondered if Miss Hoppy (my bunny) would eat some of it. She ate a whole row of lavender seedlings once, but they were sunning on "her" windowsill, so it may have had more to do with that than with their taste!

    It was funny - she ignored them for a few weeks, so I thought they were safe, until they were just about big enough to transplant and then... snip snip munch munch gone!!!

    I don;t think it's the same for rabbits at all - cats are meat-eaters by nature, bunnies are plant-eaters, so I imagine their nutrritional needs are completely different.

    Miss Hoppy will eat choice pieces of grass, but we'd have to have a whole herd of bunnies to replace the lawn moser - she's very picky! (And has never gotten sick after eating anything she found outdoors, either.
