My princess will be 2 in a couple of weeks. She is a happy indoor/outdoor cat who is such a part of our family. She loves to be in the middle of the action and enjoys spending time with me and her daddy.
Graycie ( that’s her name) carried a flea in the house with her the other day. I went to Petco to purchase frontline. As a music teacher with a tight budget this summer, I decided to go with the less expensive option…Hartz ultra drops. I applied the poison around 2:30 in the afternoon yesterday and didn’t notice anything right away. My baby woke me up at the usual time this morning and I went to work to teach piano lessons ( I don’t need and alarm clock by the way. I can count on Graycie!)
I got home from work this afternoon and enjoyed a visit from an old friend. Graycie was asleep in the next room on the couch. A few hours had passed and I felt something was wrong. She was sleeping when she should’ve been up asking me for her dinner. I woke her up and her eyes were completely dilated. Her inner eyelids were halfway closed and she was lethargic. She had trouble standing up. My friend and I rushed Graycie to the ER and she is spending the night there. They gave her a bath and I said good night to her. Her eyes looked much better at that point. The vet will flush her system tonight and I’ll see her tomorrow.
According to the doctor, she is in much better condition than many other cats she’s seen with the Hartz poison on them. I am praying she’ll be okay. I cannot believe that I poisoned my baby.
