Should I replant this in a bigger pot?? Or will it be okay in this pot for a while?

Welcome!

The pot is just fine.

I agree. There is no need to re-pot it.

I agree with Daisy and Karen. Be careful that water does not collect between the two pots after you water.

Hi all, another question.
A friend told me this plant is poisoness to cats! Is this true?

Hi Mady, Welcome! from me too!

Your lovely plant is a variety of Anthuriums (Anthurium) and all parts of the plant are toxic to cats and dogs.

Here's the listing at the ASPCA website: https://www.aspca.org/pet-care...

I've had them in the past with both dogs and cats in the house, but it depends on whether your cat likes to chew plants. If so, I'd put it where your cat can't eat it. You could put it in a room that is off limits to the cat.
