Fake snow, such as that used for decorative purposes or in snow globes, can be potentially toxic to cats if swallowed.
Many artificial snow products contain harmful chemicals such as polyacrylamide. This substance can cause irritation of the gastrointestinal tract, vomiting, and diarrhea in cats. More serious health problems may result from ingestion of larger amounts or prolonged exposure to these substances. It is essential to keep fake snow and similar products out of the reach of cats to prevent accidental intake.
