One thing my family has learned over the years is that by having (naughty) cats, we've given up our right to have any kind of living plants inside the house.
I know some kitties like to eat cacti still (like Dana's cat, Calvin), but ours thankfully don't. Plus my mom is so amazing with her decorating that she can make absolutely anything look fantastic in our house. Right now I feel a little bit like I'm living by Walden Pond (although I doubt Thoreau had any (faux) cacti over there on the East Coast).
