Monstera are poisonous to cats
A window leaf and your cat shouldn't share a room. The plant belongs to the arum family, which already indicates the poisonous sap. Toxic calcium oxalate crystals, oxalic acid and bitter substances cause severe symptoms of poisoning in your pet after consumption:
- Increased salivation
- Considerable difficulty swallowing
- Severe vomiting
- Bloody diarrhea
If the emergency occurs, please visit a veterinarian immediately. If possible, take a sample of the plant you have eaten with you so that the vet can quickly make the correct diagnosis and take targeted action. It makes no difference if it is a Monstera deliciosa whose fruits are edible.
