My Maine Coon cat is mentally retarded and how it happened

It all started when my partner and I started to paint our garage for the bar called Chadwicks we were going to make. We used to be heavy drinkers but what happened was we shut him in there when we were kind of intoxicated and he got into the paint.
I think the fumes got to him he was stuck in there for 42 hours and this was paint that didn’t dry for a few days and we think he drank a lot of it we had a lot of colors like green red purple blue yellow pink and orange.
When we finally let him back in we noticed he was acting weird like he was stumbling a lot but we thought he was just playing.
Well then his stools came out multi-colored and he was vomiting multi-colored also so we changed him to a special diet of expensive food lion brand food and we noticed that our paint kept getting emptier and emptier and he kept on vomiting and pooping different colors.
Then the doctor found traces of paint and we needed to get his stomach pumped to this day he is still mentally retarded but John and I love him with all our heart.
