A father is warning pet owners of the threat posed by antifreeze - after the family's "beloved" cat died.
Paul McNally says his young son and daughter were left devastated after Jasper deteriorated for around 24 hours, before being put down at a vets on Saturday afternoon.
The cat had drunk antifreeze, which is fatal to pets even in small amounts. It kills thousands of animals every year.
Paul, who's from Salford, is warning others of the early warning signs of antifreeze poisoning - and raising awareness of a campaign to make it safer.
Antifreeze poisoning must be spotted quickly in order to prevent fatal deterioration.
- appearing drunk
- wobbly, uncoordinated movement
- Excessive urination
- rapid heart beat
seizures or convulsions
Paul has now signed a petition asking manufacturers to add a bitter tasting substance to discourage pets from drinking them.
