a goddess amongst flowers

There's no flower quite so dream-like as the gardenia. The scent causes my eyes to close and then my whole body shrinks down as I float up into the center of the petals, into a quiet, clouded paradise of unmatched beauty.
I really want to buy one of these cute little 4" plants from The Flowerbox, but I have read they are slightly toxic to cats if ingested and occasionally my dear pet has a desire to nibble on things she shouldn't. Perhaps I could just place it far out of reach? Or perhaps the smell would actually turn her off?
