Can you tell me if a fuchsia plant is toxic to cats?

It looks like a little tree with little pink buds. I can't find any info anywhere.
They are non-toxic to both dogs and cats.
A good resource (for lots of things) is the ASPCA website:
They also have a list of toxic plants.
Hope this helps!

I looked at the ASPCA website and didn't find any info. Are you sure the plant is non-toxic to cats? I want to bring the plant inside but want to be sure before I do so.
100% certain.
Also, on the aspca website, look at this page:
There is a box where you can type in the name of any plant. If you type in Fuchsia, you will get 2 results and both are non-toxic (one is general page for whole genus Fuchsia and the other is for a specific species in that genus).
