My cat recently ate a mint stem and I wanted to know it could possibly hurt him. I found out that the ASPCA warns that peppermint plants and oils are dangerous for felines to ingest, as their stomachs aren't capable of digesting it properly. Consuming mint can lead to liver damage, nervous system problems, gastrointestinal malfunctions and other issues for cats. Although catnip is a member of the mint family, and its not rare for a cat to express interest in other types of mint, it's best to avoid exposing them to strong minty plants, oils, and essences. Inspite of this admonition by the ASPCA, my cat is doing fine after drinking quite a bit of water.
