Welcome to Leaf & Paw!


I’m a cat and hedgehog lover, and indoor plant parent. I live with my husband, two cats, two hedgehogs, and over 50 houseplants in my 200 year old historical cottage in New York.

As an animal-lover and plant hoarder, I created leaf&paw to provide information on my last two interests together. I talk about houseplant care, houseplants that are toxic to pets, the most pet friendly specimens, and document my ever-growing plant collection that I love to share.

I also offer plant consulting and advice for those with black thumbs, or people who just like to know which plant goes where.
