Older 11 year old male drank water with pieces of treated kitty litter dissolved in rescue in a protected free area with white flooring...saw several white bubbles of "throw up" on the floor....and found him in an enclosed condo type dark Hot and not much ventilated (Texas) part of cattery..Appeared groggy. Have daily contact with him and three other rescues.
All three have had recent treatment and meds. and packing for ear hematoma..have been doing great!!!
