The Q&A Archives: My Cat Nibbles On The Aloe Vera

Question: My cat likes to nibble on my aloe vera. She chews off small pieces from the ends of the leaves. Can this practice be harmful to her?

Answer: According to the Cat Fancier's Association web site at Aloe vera can be poisonous to cats. You might want to limit her opportunities to chew on the plant now that she seems to have developed a taste for it, and check with your veterinarian about its toxicity level and any possible cumulative effects of repeated ingestion -- or how much it would take to be harmful.
