So, last night my cat, Munchie, drank some of my coconut water. Initially he seemed ok, but after about 15 minutes, he started acting kind of loopy. He was breathing a little hard and he seemed to cycle between sedate and hyper active. About an hour later, I walked past him and turned on the hall light, which got a reaction from him like, "O.M.G...YOU'RE MAGIC!" The long and short of it was that he seemed to be tripping balls. |
At first, I just noticed the heavy breathing and thought it was the beginning of an asthma attack, so I got his inhalers and gave him a couple puffs. By the time we all went to bed, he seemed back to normal. No heavy breathing, he settled down pretty quickly and slept soundly through the night. This morning, his behavior was completely normal.
So, I'm wondering if coconut water can cause this sort of reaction. I did a quick google search and I didn't find anything that mentioned these symptoms, so I'm turning to you guys. As a side note, he didn't seem to be in distress at any point and was purring pretty loudly for most of the night.
