PlantBuddy has been designed out of sheer frustration. Many among us have both cats and houseplants at home. Frequently, this is not a good combination because our cats love to dig in the soil of the plants.
Some cat owners attempted to solve this by stretching plastic bags or aluminum foil over the pots. That worked pretty well, but it was not an ideal solution. As well as looking unsightly, you would have to peel back the plastic or foil to water the plant.
We thought that this could be done better. It had to be something that does not need to be removed in order to feed or water the plant.
It had to be independent of pot size as much as possible and it should be decorative, when set against the plant.
