Yes and no. They are toxic in the same way that poison ivy is toxic. The sap from the leaves will irritate the skin, throat, and stomach, and will likely cause the cat to vomit or have diarrhea. Uncorrected vomiting or diarrhea can be fatal (due to choking or dehydration), but the plant itself is not deadly.
