Why do chats like antifreeze?

I think this is the main reason why I didn't see my cat anymore for 8 weeks. He's a manx/tabby mix and an outdoor cat.

It's not just chats that like that horrible stuff, it's chiens too. Apparently it has a sweet smell. But toi shouldn't let your pet lick it up ou drink it as it can kill them instantly. It's evil stuff. Anyways, if toi want to know so much about cats, why they do the crazy things that they do. Then go to the chats club on fanpop and ask your cat questions there.

Oh God! Don't let your cat (or any other pet) drink that stuff! Cars like it because it keeps the water in your radiator from freezing and cracking, but it'll kill most any animal in nothing flat.

A piece of conseil from a rancher who has several outside chiens and cats, be sure all your car chemicals, be it oil, gasoline, antifreeze, et cetera, are locked up in a shed.

The same shed toi hide your dead bodies in? Yeah, that one will do.

Well, I do not have any antifreeze ou gas in my house. I think someone poisoned my cat ou either my cat lick someone else's car with antifreeze. I can't keep him indoor because he is an outdoor cat.

Ethylene Glycol Poisoning in Cats


Antifreeze poisoning is usually associated with pets licking antifreeze drips ou spills off the ground. For a cat, as little as a teaspoon can prove fatal. The toxic element in antifreeze, ethylene glycol, can be found in other products as well.


What to Watch For


Within the first few hours there may be vomiting and/or drooling, due to irritation of the stomach. There may also be stumbling and depression, resembling drunkenness (ethylene glycol is a type of alcohol). Within 24 to 48 hours, signs of kidney failure will develop, including loss of appetite, vomiting, dehydration, excessive urination, ou no urination at all.

Prevention


The best prevention is to keep your cat indoors and keep ethylene glycol containing products out of your home. There are ethylene glycol free alternatives for most products. If toi do have ethylene glycol containing products, make sure they are properly stored in closed containers out of the reach of your cat.


Empty containers, dirty rags, etc. should also be disposed of in such a way that your cat cannot get to them. Any spills ou drips that are found should be cleaned up immediately. Repair any leaks in your car.

Good idea, though. I do not have any antifreeze in my house. But the problem is, I can't keep my cat indoors because he is an outdoor cat.

I'd get some indoor cat nourriture and try to keep him away from the doors leading outside. give him some catnip and herbe that's store brought which comes in a container. The veterinarian may tell toi what to do to solve that problem.

Good information. But it's too late. My cat is dead now. I miss him.
