Ingestion of meth can cause very serious and potentially life threatening problems for your cat. It is imperative that you contact your local veterinarian or emergency veterinary hospital and plan to take your cat in to see them ASAP. Cats can quickly deteriorate after ingestion of meth this can lead to seizures and organ damage or failure. The sooner that you take your cat into the vet the sooner they can try to take steps to "decontaminate" this may mean the vet may induce vomiting or pump her stomach, may give activated charcoal or iv fluids. It is very important NOT to induce vomiting at home without veterinary instruction as the at may lose consciousness quickly and inhale the vomit. Seek veterinary attention immediately.
