Dear Christopher Cat

I read your columns about chocolate toxicity in dogs. Is chocolate also toxic to cats? We have been going on the assumption that it is.

Christopher Responds

You are wise -– and correct. The toxic dose for cats is the same as it is for dogs.

The difference is that, unlike dogs, we cats are rarely attracted to chocolate -– yet one more way we are superior to dogs.
