  1. If you mean Coffea arabica , the shrub that produces the coffee cherry which contains the bean we grind and brew, then no, the plant itself is not toxic to cats. Coffee beans are toxic to them but not the leaves or bark or sap.
    If you mean the plant that is called Coffee Tree or Wild Coffee, which is a plant with the botanical name of Polyscias guilfoylei, it most definitely IS toxic to cats, dogs and horses! It can cause contact dermatitis, vomiting, anorexia and/or depression.
