Aloha! You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin
Eggplant isn't toxic to cats but ingesting a nondigestible green such as those vegetables leaves can cause nausea, drooling, and vomiting. This should be transient but you can see how administering an over the counter antacid such as famotidine dosed at 1/4 of a 10 mg tablet affects Scraggle Mew. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
