Hey, Plant People

What do you know about plants that are poisonous to cats?

One of the amazing gifts we got at the party last night was a large, lovely plant with big, green and purple leaves. Keith is worried it’s one of the many that are bad for kitties.
Now, it’s NOT the same as the plant in the photo above (which is poisonous), but it’s close. It’s also close to this one (not poisonous).
So, big, oval-shaped waxy green-on-top-purple-underneath leaves, with patterns like a zebra plant, sort of fanned out like the black magic plant, and most similar to a dumb cane (but without the cane up the middle). I’m guessing we should err on the side of caution and give the plant away, but it’s so pretty! Ugh. Any experts with ideas?

    Bon, are the kitties inclined to chewing on plants you have previously had in the house-if any? If they aren’t chewers, you shouldn’t have anything to worry about. But, if they are, I would err on the side of caution and give the plant away. Or it might look lovely on the porch at the top of the stairs!
