Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

My apologies that the website's information request bot seemed confused by your initial question. Its purpose is to gather some basis information so we can help customers with their queries.

In any case, in regards ***** ***** question, as long as your lass isn't able to chew/eat the plants (since they can cause vomiting, appetite loss, lethargy and skin irritation), we'd not be overly worried here. Some cats do find these plants a bit potent for their sense of smell and may avoid sitting near to them. But if your kitty isn't bothered by that, then its fine for her to sit inside looking out on the porch with these plants present.

Please take care,

Dr. B.
