That's hysterical!! She did look sorry though.


I love it! I'm going to have to set up a camera at my garden so I can figure things like this out.

On the more serious side, peppers (and tomatoes) are part of the nightshade family, and the leaves are slightly poisonous. They're not good for a cat to eat!

Thanks for the warning Patrick. I was a bit worried about that too, but this actually happened about a week ago and the cat seems fine. She didn't show any signs of being sick or anything. I am thinking of rigging up a way to hang a curtain or a net around my light stand so this couldn't happen again.

Hello! :)

I loved this post! :) I am very sorry about your pepper plants. :( I hope the ones we planted will grow!

I loved the pictures! Macy sure has a Big mouth! She looks very sorry in the other picture though, who couldn't forgive her with that sweet cute face! :)

I hope you have a Wonderful day! Great job on your Post! ;)

I love you!

That was so hilarious. Beautiful set up and great photo of the cat.

Poor kitty. Plucky peppers. I hope everything is back to normal before the peppers make it outdoors.

What a sweetie! Glad you found your culprit, and with some nifty tech too! I'm hoping my cat (3 legged, no tailed, black long hair) will leave my sweetcorn alone for long enough for them to be able to grow! She's been eating the tips. Perhaps cats have a thing for plants starting with 'sweet'?

So glad I found your blog - I've been trying to work out why my formerly healthy pepper & chilli plants suddenly have no leaves, or leaves with holes, with no sign of disease or other pest, after a week outside.
My plants' leaves look exactly like your photos - I suddenly have two prime feline suspects in my house....
Good luck!

You're not alone! My room-mate's cat devoured half my winged-elm bonsai today!

*restrains urge to kill (deceptively) innocent creature*

Just stumbled across your posting and had to chuckle ... I knew it right away. The damage had the same pattern that some of our plants have had when our cat has gotten at them

My indoor, grow-light space has a thick plastic sheet protecting the shelves from both our cats and, get to work cats, the occasional mouse.
