Are these berries poisonous for my cat? (no, he hasn't eaten any, but if they would be dangerous for him, I'd remove that Bush, just to make sure...)

    Cats aren't likely to eat any kind of berries, so I don't think I'd worry about it...

    I'd suggest adding a gardening discussion to help you identify the bush -- it's off-topic here -- which will then let you look up it's toxicity and discuss it with your vet.

We had those berries in our yard, as kids and were told never to eat them, and they never seemed to be a problem with any cats, including ours. We lived in a track and there were lots of cats. And remember a cat is a self survivor, so the are smart.


On Gardening.SE I was told that this is a form of holly (ilex spp) Wikipedia which is poisonous for both humans and cats, but like it was said here es well, cats are very unlikely to eat them.
