Are aglaonema poisonous to cats?

According to the NCSU website they are poisonous and cause
severe pain in the mouth when eaten. I checked because our kitten
likes to chew on the leaves. It doesn't seem to cause her pain but
she does have constant urinary tract infections. When I Googled it
the webpage below says the "Toxic Principle" is calcium oxalate
crystals, the same crystals that cause urinary infections in cats.
Coincidence? Let's just say I moved the plant :-P
