    In a little town near Brisbane where I live, this little guy was found just in the nick of time after poisoning with anti-freeze (often used in baits :frown:).
    The treatment of choice is vodka and the vet just happened to have some.
    He didn't have a microchip, which is really rare here and usually means he's homeless. He won't be after this.. :)
    After all that intravous vodka it seems quite appropriate that they named him 'Tipsy'.

    Lucky cat! I'd never heard that vodka was an antidote.
