Sorry..not used to how forums work here.
Made a pig's ear of the above.
I am assuming Lioness is from USA as she talks about poison ivy.
Solanum dulcamara is a problem plant over there which I am familiar with.
I believe the leaves/growth habit are a perfect match.
But if it's not in the UK it could be any number of plants that we don't know about
See original post
Make a feature of it. Let it climb up the fence.
Has it escaped from next doors garden?
Sorry with leaves that shape it looks like bitter bind weed. Solanum dulcamara.
This is bindweed in UK. Calystegium sepium.
Note leaf shape.

Difficult to get a scale from the pics.
We grow Rhododendron racemosum...the flowers are tiny compared to many Rhodo's.
Pic from Glendoick a renown grower of special Rhodo's.
Quote...."Size (approx) in 10 year slow 80-135cm (3-4.5ft)DescriptionPink flowers in April. Fairly compact habit for this species.HardinessH4 hardyFurther InformationRhododendron Dwarf Species Characterised by clusters of pink-reddish flowers from axillary buds. The more straggly forms can be pruned after flowering."
Very hard to id them accurately ...even by Rhodo experts from a pic.

We grew several .....including the beautiful tree forms.... A.arborea and A.laevis
A. Obilisk is an upright form.
A. pumila is a short shrubby one.
A. Robin Hill
A. Autumn Brilliance.
Some are just large multi stemmed shrubs.eg A.lamarkii
All are beautiful for the flowers, berries and autumn colour.
1. Hydrangea quercifolia.
2. Euonymus alatus I believe

I iunderstand that pollen from Lilies is a problem for cats.
Pollen on fur..cats wash... poison ingested = dead cat
I suspect indoor lilies are the main culprit as flowers are at cat height.
