Ah... the corkscrew willow! One of my favorites... It does contain salicylic acid, which is related to aspirin. The cat may dig in the pot, as they typically do, but this poses no threat to the animal. It is so bitter that the cat won't want to eat it after one taste. Carry on, and enjoy the awesome tree!
