Having cats is very rewarding as you're developing a relationship with one another. Some parts of looking after cats are more fun than others, but it's definitely worth it! Having plants adds to this nurturing energy you're fostering within yourself. As you're becoming more content and mindful, you'll find that you start more actively engaging in self-care.

As we're spending more time in a concrete jungle than a natural one, we're losing touch with nature. Introducing plants into your house or flat can reignite this connection.

A much-loved classic in the pet-friendly plant world is the Areca Palm, frequently called Butterfly Palm. This palm is a real all-rounder: low maintenance, cat-friendly; all whilst being a natural humidifier and air purifier. The palm can filter airborne toxins from the air, keeping them out of your lungs. Plus, it releases moisture into the air, helping to improve humidifiers. This can help your airways as well as dry skin, especially in winter.
