Laundry Room: Catastrophes

Another laundry room danger is a spilled bottle of liquid laundry detergent that Sox leaves his tracks in, and then cleans away. “Cats are such fastidious groomers,” Dr. Lee says. “Cationic laundry detergents can be corrosive if ingested orally.” If you think your pet has swallowed something poisonous, never try to induce vomiting—always call a vet immediately.
