What is this plant clipping?

Hi Judy,

Just got this clipping from a friend and am trying to figure out if it’s ok to grow around my cat. Many thanks for your help!

Hi Mario,

Your plant clipping is a coleus plant. Although a coleus plant is not considered poisonous,  it is not considered totally safe due to some minor reactions from pets munching on them. I’d advise keeping it away from pets and children. You can read more about common houseplants that are quite poisonous in my book  Don’t Feed Me To Your Cat! A Guide to Poisonous Houseplants.
