She has bitten in...

She has bitten in to a phylidentron. A couple leaves have teeth marks when I caught her. I dont think she ingested it.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the cat will be able to digest that. What is the cat's name and age?

Winnie 1 year

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Winnie?

No very healthy

Winnie will be fine from this event. I have kitties too and my kitties use to do this all the time......usually what you see with this plant is just stomach upset at most but likely you will not even see that since she did not ingest any......I would recommend moving the plant to another location...:)) kitties are notorious for going after these plants.....

And there are many other house plants that are super toxic....so be careful.... I have always said if you have kitties you cannot really have plants......:)) Hope that helps, DRB
