Is this plant poisonous?

Does anyone if Dracaena sanderana (a.k.a. "Lucky Bamboo") is poisonous to cats? Its the stuff that looks like bamboo and is usually sold in a pot with oriental designs on it, or in a glass container with rocks and water. I bought one and I know that Ollie is going to chew on it. He chews on everything so I need to know if I should put it where he can't reach it. I checked out the list on A.S.P.C.A.'s site and couldn't find it, but I did see another kind of dracaena on there so I'm worried. Does anyone know if its safe?

Thanks Jade. I thought it might be since its in the dracaena family.
I'll find another place for it where he can't reach it. I noticed it also said golden pothos on the list. I have a pothos plant but I think its called a marble pothos. He chews on it all the time and nothing happens. Should I remove it anyway since its in the pothos family?

This page has just pothos listed, which I can only assume means the entire family. It's related to the Philodendron, which has calcium oxalate crystals as it's toxic part.

Ok, I'll move that one too. I had no idea that pothos were toxic.
