Hi,
Welcome. I'm Dr. Bruce and I've been a small animal veterinarian for over 15 years. Thank you for your question. The pony tail plant isn't a toxic plant to dogs or cats. Here is a good link on it.

So if she is to chew on it, it won't be a toxicity issue. In saying that though, could she eat some and just get nauseated from that? My own cat will chew on plain grass if she gets out and like a clock, she'll vomit it up about 4 hours later. It could be just something that is more sensitive to her stomach. It would be advised to try and keep her away from the plant if she is going to chew on it and have an upset stomach from that.
