Question: I received a Staggered Madagascar Dragon Tree as a gift. Is this tree safe for my two cats?

Answer: I cannot find any information to prove or disprove your Dracaena marginata is toxic to cats. It appears to be problematic for rabbits and dogs, but cats are not listed. To be on the safe side, with all houseplants, assume they are toxic if plant parts are consumed in great quantities and monitor your pets to make sure they are not snacking on your plants.
