While ours is high on a shelf, and is inaccessible to our cats, we\'re looking for more information on just how toxic they are. Has anyone had any experience? Some sources say death is certain, while others say the usual things (stomach upset, salivation, vomiting, gum irritation, etc.). I\'m sure any info will help. Thanks in advance.
