Do you know if cats like ginger plants??? Mine wouldn't leave my indoor basil alone. When it comes to plants vs cats, the cats* win.

*(just cause they are not big enough to turn into teriyaki...yet, my favorite threat for them)

Good question.

I was surprised that my basil is surviving my cat. When I first brought it in I did notice basil on his breath, once. No signs of further predation by cat on the basil.

My basil was shredded, daily....and it wasn't by me.

I have no idea if cats will go for ginger. Our indoor/outdoor cat seems sickly and I don't think she'll be around long enough to see what happens

Thanks for the hugs, she is about 14 years old so maybe it's coming close to her time to go.
