How to try and save a cat who has drunk antifreeze — 9 Comments

  2. I’m curious. Was there actual cat-food found with antifreeze in it? Or is that area just more prone to small car accidents and it spilled out of cars’ radiators into puddles on the streets. In either case, the people who were truly responsible for poisoning those cats were the people that let them roam free in the first place–no matter how the cats found antifreeze. If a cat gets ran over by a car is it the automobile manufacturer’s fault too? Really, start to take some responsibility for the deaths of your own cats. If your cat dies from being outside that’s 100% your own fault, no others’.

    • If your cat dies from being outside that’s 100% your own fault, no others’.

      This is obviously incorrect because some people maliciously and criminally poison cats or injure them. These people obviously take all of the responsibility in these cases. If a cat is killed by a car and the person’s house is near a busy road and the person still lets their cat out, I agree that person has to shoulder a lot of the responsibility. But you could also argue that humans make the world more dangerous for animals and ourselves because of a careless and reckless approach to life: population expansion, more cars, more guns, more bombs, more shootings, and so on.

      • So, let me get this correct:

        It is okay if a cat gets ran over by a car, and that’s the cat-owner’s fault.

        It is okay if a cat drinks antifreeze in a puddle from a car accident, and that’s the cat-owner’s fault.

        It is okay if a cat eats rat poison it finds behind someone’s garbage bins, and that’s the cat-owner’s fault.

        It is okay if a cat drinks antifreeze that someone left out in their open garage after draining the radiator, and that’s the cat-owner’s fault.

        But if a cat eats some food that also happens to have antifreeze dripped into it, then that’s the person’s fault that combined the two substances?

        Interesting how you make those distinctions.

        And you never answered, was there proof that someone did just that? Put out food with antifreeze in it? Or are you just placing blame on someone else when it was really the cat owners’ faults all along? It’s so simple to blame others for the deaths of your own cats, isn’t it. Then you don’t have to look at who really killed your own cats. How conveniently you trick your own minds that way just so you don’t have to be responsible for your own negligence.

        • You are talking absolute mumbo-jumbo again. I never wrote these things.

          It is okay if a cat drinks antifreeze in a puddle from a car accident, and that’s the cat-owner’s fault.

          It is incorrect to assign fault to someone under these circumstances. It is an accident and an unfortunate circumstance. Somethings that happen cannot be blamed on someone.

          You think in black and white terms which indicates poor thinking.

          • I know that all the pets I’ve owned in life never died from anything other than old-age while under my care. Because I actually loved them. I took care of them, watched out for them, and protected them from all harm.

            No cat would die from any of those above-mentioned scenarios, ever, if they too were actually loved, cared-for, and were under the owner’s proper supervision.

            If a dog escaped from my supervision and was shot by a neighbor, which is perfectly legal for them to do so, that would have been my fault and I would have acted like an adult and taken full responsibility for the death of my dog. Even apologizing to the person who was forced to shoot my dog for having put them in such a terrible situation and forcing them to make that awful decision. (After I got over the initial shock and intense grieving of course.)

            If a cat escaped from my supervision and died at the hands of others, that too would have been my fault. I would have had nobody but myself to blame and would have acted the same as if it happened to any other animal of mine.

            But of course, this is all nonsense to you. Because it is more convenient for you to dismiss this information than comprehend it. Thinking like a responsible adult is just so very foreign to you that it just doesn’t make any sense to you at all. You’ve made that perfectly clear, if nothing else.

              My post makes it clear that I firmly believe in responsible cat caretaking. I suggest you read the post again. You seem to be blinded by your own angry thoughts. I believe I am a very responsible person. You don’t know me. You have no idea how I live or almost anything about my philosophies. Please be more respectful and less angry.

  3. Great advice Michael.
    It’s so upsetting that a cheap bitter tasting additive to anti freeze would stop all this poisoning of cats deliberately and accidentally because then cats wouldn’t touch it, yet the government ignore all the pleas and petitions to make this a law.
    As always, cats are way down low in their priorities.

    • Thanks Ruth. I’d like to save some of these cats. It is a horrible death. One of my mother’s cats was poisoned and she watched her die. It affected her for a long time.
