    This is a bit of a specific question... but does anyone know if a mexican fortune tree is poisonous to cats? I have one in my home and can't find any information on it.
    Any information would be helpful, keeping my cats away from it is becoming a bit difficult you see...

    To be quite honest, I don't know what this plant/tree is, but if you go onto the FAB website (Feline Advisory Bureau), they have lots of factsheets including plants which are poisonous to cats. hope you find what you're looking for there :)

    This is a list of poisonus garden plants. Can't see Mexican Fortune Tree but most plants and trees have a latin name so it might be worth checking that and making sure it's not on the list.
