According to the ASPCA poison control center, Stevia (which I believe is the active ingredient in pure via), can cause vomiting and diarrhea, and in large amounts may cause electrolyte abnormalities.

Has your kitty eaten this sweetener tonight, or you are just wondering if you could give it to him?
