    Hi,

    I got an awkward question but I need to know if I cause the death of my cat

    I have an Ants problem at my house and I used a small quantity of Borax 5.4% that I put on my floor. I will say approximately 2 ml not more. I get back to work and found my old cat dead. It's either that or natural causes since she was 10 years older.

    How much borax 5.4% could killed a cat?

    Thanks for your answer and sorry for the sad story

    LD 50 is 2.4gm/KG a 6 lb cat would have to eat 7.2 gm of pure borax to possibly kill it or 133 gms of your stuff-ie no way
