Hi,I'm Dr Scott. Welcome to JustAnswer, I am working on your question now, you can expect a written reply sometime within the next ten minutes or so.

Hello again,

Good news! Julie should be just fine, however I have worked out a fuller answer for you below.

1. The information I have is that guash paint is a form of opaque watercolour paint, as such this water from the project is not likely to be toxic as such to your kitten. That said some cats could perhaps experience a mild transient bout of vomiting and / or diarrhoea, but I would not expect worse than that, and even that may well not occur.

2. given the above all you need do for now is just to keep an eye on your kitten. But in any case I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if Julie's condition changes in any way or if you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott

Thanks very much. I'm still at work but the kitten seemed normal last night and I have had no report to indicate any problems. I'll check when I get home to be sure.
