|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?

|According to the Cat Fancier's Association web site at http://www.cfainc.org/index.ht... 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.
