Customer Question

Hello, I just found her getting into the toilet water. She had, it appears, dunked her foot and licked it off. However I can say she didn't actually drink from it as well. We have tidy bowl in the tank of our toilet that turns the water blue. I was looking online trying to determine if just observing her would be enough.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the cat will be able to digest that. What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: Kaysie and she's 12 years old.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Kaysie?
Customer: Not that I can think of. She did do a little choking/coughing right after but did not vomit . (Similar to when they have a hair ball.
