that my DS flicked off the highchair

Will he be okay? Surely they are bad for him?

Yes, they are toxic to cats (and dogs). Please call your vet for advice.

I found this...

Grapes & Raisins: Though it isn't clear to scientists just what makes grapes and raisins toxic to both cats and dogs, even a relatively small amount can damage the kidneys. For this reason it's unwise to feed these to your pet, even if small amounts are tolerated. Also avoid giving bits of cookie or other foods that contain raisins.

shock oh god - thanks bella - he is a little gannet and comes running whenever he spots that DS is in his highchair. But it's usually a tiny bit of toast or veg. Will phone now.

Thanks MAS, I think he had eaten 3 by the time I got to him, might have been 1 or 2 more though (I was picking the other billion off the floor)

Hope he is OK, it seems to be worse with dogs and raisins but glad you are getting him checked out!!
