I read that the ASPCA has listed Aloe Vera as mildly toxic to cats.
a) Does that only mean toxic to ingest, or even live in a house with such a plant? If I'm sure my cat does not chew on the plant, is it safe to keep around?
b) How can some high-end pet foods contain aloe, if eating it is toxic?
(I'm not trying to cause controversy, I'm just wondering what's the case and what's safe for my cat. I've also seen this question, which agrees with the ASPCA rating.)
