Wisteria Vine is Toxic for Cats

A Floppycats reader put together this YouTube video of her cats Rochelle and Charlie.  Her older Ragdoll cat, Rochelle, got poisoning from a Wisteria vine outside of her home.  She wrote, “Rochelle ate a very small tip of a Wisteria vine and had to be rushed to the animal Hospital. She had uncontrollable vomiting and her breathing was not good. Then she had to receive shots from the vet and Mama had to give her meds twice daily for three days.”

    Thank you for posting this, Jenny. I had no idea wisteria was toxic to cats. Yet another thing to worry about! So glad Rochelle recovered, and what a good little brother Charlie is 🙂 I’d love to know how old he is in this video.
