Nyquil and Acetiminophen can be deadly for cats. Always read labels, and keep an eye on where the medicines are. My friend's cat licked the leftover medicine in a cap from a Nyquil jar and started throwing up. When the cat started shaking uncontrollably, they took it to the vet emergency room. Several hours, and IV, medications, and several nights in the hospital later, the cat is still not out of the woods. The bill for this tiny bit of Nyquil left in a cap? $1,300 and counting. I did some more research on another site I subscribe to and found this article. Worth bookmarking.

Yes, Thank you for posting information like this, we all should know although too bad that an animal has to go thru this

Hopefully kitty will recover from this 100%.

But scary stuff.

Thanks, she's pretty shook up. the kitty I mean. So's my friend. I had NO idea acetiminophen would do that to cats. I guess dogs react badly to it, too, but their system seems to react a little better. They would get sick, but not as sick as this little kitty did. The doc said 5 ml would have killed it. Good to read labels and keep things put away. Cats are so agile you don't think about them getting up onto every possible counter and ledge in the house some times.
