Water Repellent Sprays Can Be Fatal for Your Pets

For you outdoorsy pet-owning friends, don't apply water-repellent sprays to your gear inside your home, around your pets. A friend's cat just developed "chemically induced pneumonia" after she sprayed her gear with a DWR. Despite getting veterinary treatment, her kitty didn't survive. Until today, I had never heard of cats getting chemically induced pneumonia.
