How to keep your pets from destroying your plants? 

Rumour has it that cats hate the smell of citrus - so try spraying your plants with a diluted lemon water solution or leave a few pieces of orange peel near your plants as a deterrent. Coffee grounds also work well for this and your plants will love it! You can also buy pre-made repellents that have ingredients like citronella added. 

Keep toxic plants up high and our of reach. Now placing plants on counters is great way of keeping dogs away from them but this may not work with cats. Try placing them in places that are hard to reach with no places for the cat to climb up.
