I do not find any references for these plants being poisonous to cats. I do know that something called a Christmas Rose is poisonous, so if the Christmas cactus is the same thing...then this could be a problem.
You can find a listing of all poisonous house plants at the following place:

This is the Pet Poison Helpline.

They also have a website at:

If you feel that your pet may be suffering from intoxication, I encourage you to call and speak with a toxicologist as they are specialized in the field and will be able to give you detailed instructions on what to do.

I hope that this informtion is of help to you, and that your kitty feels better soon. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
