Answer
Lisamarie,

You did not give me a phone # To text to. Yes, that plant is poisonous. I hope you made it to the vet in time and she will be okay. Put the plant in a room where the cat does not have access too.
The following website will give you more info in the future: http://www.aspca.org/pet-care/animal-poison-control/toxic-and-non-toxic-plants?m

Good luck!
