Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi, I'm Dr Scott. Welcome to JustAnswer, I am working on your answer now, you can expect a written reply sometime within the next five to ten minutes.
Hello againI have worked out an answer for you below.1. I wouldn't worry about this too much. While there are no guarantees via the internet I very much doubt if your kitten will try and eat the chocolates or the chocolate biscuits. Unlike dogs cats rarely have a sweet tooth, in fact I have dealt with a great many cases over the years where dogs have eaten chocolate in various forms and suffered toxicity issues. But never a cat, they just don't like the taste ...Regards,

Well I think it highly unlikely that a kitten will eat any of the chocolate, this is not a typical food source for cats. However if she did eat some then chocolate toxicity could be an issue, you would expect serious problems to occur when around 2 ounces or above per pound of body weight is swallowed.
The symptoms of chocolate poisoning would include vomiting and diarrhoea as well as frequent urination, and restlessness in the early stages. This can then progress to cardiac dysfunction, tremors and fits. Of course you should call your vet without delay if any symptoms appear.There is no specific treatment for chocolate poisoning only symptomatic treatment.
