My two cats broke a snowglobe and both died within days from ethylene glycol (antifreeze) poisoning — 6 Comments

  1. I’m very sorry for your loss. They are precious and beautiful kitties. It’s very hard to lose not only one but 2 beautiful babies in tragic way. They will always look over you and your family up there

  2. Thank you for sharing this information about snow globes and their danger if broken. I have a large collection. I was not feeling very Christmasy this year so did not put them out. It must have been an Angel watching out for my 6 cats and 2 dogs.
    I recently lost a dig and a kitten so don’t believe I could have coped with more deaths.
    Sincere condolences on the loss of your beloved family members Peekaboo and Guy. They both have a permanent place in your heart and memories so will still be with you spirit.

  3. What a horrible story! I am crushed by this and pray that Patricia finds comfort. Cats are the same as children in my book.

    On a side note: There may be a lawsuit waiting to happen because there are no warnings on the globes. If this had happened to small children they may have suffered the same way.

  4. This is so sad, what an awful way to lose such beautiful companions. Thank you to Patricia for sharing this horrific experience, that acts as a warning to us all.

    If all countries added a strong bitterant to these lethal chemicals, it might reduce the number of fatalities.

    Sending love to Patricia x
