I read on this website that dumbcane's sap is poisoness. Does that mean it could harm my cat who likes to chew on the plants?

Thanks!

gardengirl, do not let the cat chew on a dumbcane it does have a sap that can cause vocal cords to go numb and can cause it to be very sick! your gardening friend kathyblairs
