Hi there. This is Dr. Gawlik.

 

I'm afraid there is little chance of successfully, and more importantly, HUMANELY euthanizing a cat in this manner.

 

A drug overdose is likely to cause vomiting (and certainly lethargy) without death.

 

Please seek in-person veterinary assistance with this.

 

Let me know if I can be of further information.

 

Kindly,

Dr. Elaine
