I just brought fresh holly and mistletoe in the house. Do I have to worry about the cats eatihng it? What will happen if they do, I think these are poisonous.

not if they are outdoor cats. (usually they're not interested)
if they are indoor cats, you always have to be a little careful with houseplants and greenery.

unfortunately, i'm allergic to cats.

I have heard that cats are smart enough to not get into things that are poisionus...
True or not, I have no idea...

*just thought i'd throw that out there*

My cats always try to get into our plants...Not sure what you can do to keep them out. Definately keep an eye out though.
