Will cilantro hurt my cat?

I planted a little garden in pots on my balcony. Thinking to give my cat a little treat I got some catnip. My cat, being a contrary beast, ignores the catnip and wants to eat the cilantro. I know nothin about which common plants are toxic to cats. So will eating cilantro hurt my cat in any way? It doesn't appear to make him sick in any way I can see.

Well, for what it's worth, cilantro is listed as non-toxic on this list.

The only harm from your cat eating cilantro would be that there is less for you to eat. I loooove cilantro!
