Please cover the tree water container with aluminum foil immediately so your cat drinks no more of it. Then call your vet. Christmas tree water may contain natural and man-made toxins.

This is not good for the cat to drink the water that a pine tree is sitting in. If you have any animals at this time of the year the tree base should be covered so the animal can not get to the water in the base of the tree.

If this continues on you should take the cat to the vet to make sure it is fine and there isn't any type of infection that has resulted from the cat drinking this water.

Cover the wafer with nylon net. Also consult your vet for other suggestions

Please get the cat to the vet as soon as possible. Sadly Christmas tree water can have chemicals from the tree (fertilizers, pesticides and sap in it which can be very dangerous to pets. That cat may need IV or other treatment to resolve this. I am concerned that this is something that cannot be treated with a home remedy or over the counter product.

Meanwhile,make sure the water is not accessible to the cat any more. Wrap it in something to prevent access or better yet, keep the kit OUT of the room.

Please post back with an update. Prayers for a good outcome!
