Bleach and Cat Urine

Share Your Story: Accidental Poisonings

By Michael A

What I Did:

Bleach on cat urine

How I Did It:

One of our cats likes to use the bathtub as a cat box... Usually we run water to wash it down the drain and then use bleach to disinfect it.... but today, I just poured the bleach directly on it. It started bubbling and gave off toxic fumes. Eyes stung and throat burned. Ran water to wash it down the drain and aired out the room.

Lessons Learned

  • Kill the cat! Or make certain it's in the room the next time I'm stupid enough to do this...
