How long ago did he chew the leaves? How is he acting now?

This plant is considered toxic. It can cause vomiting, depression and make cats have dilated pupils. There is no specific antidote. If he only chewed a little he may be fine. If he consumed some whole leaves, he may get sick.

If he chewed the plant and is not vomiting, and his pupils appear normal, he probably did not get enough to make him sick.
