Can I Get Sick From Smelling Cat Urine? – Your Worst Fears Confirmed


(casual relaxing music) – Can you get sick from
smelling cat urine? 100%, and here’s how. Cat urine is composed of
water, ammonia and cat piss. High levels of ammonia when
inhaled can make you sick, causing nausea, heartburn and most commonly
projectile vomit. Now to get poisoned,
you would have to inhale about 11,600
gallons of ammonia, or 300 cats worth of piss. So how do you encounter
300 cats worth of piss? You buy a tiny cottage. It’s a fixer-upper. You’re doing all the
repairs yourself. Sawing off banisters,
knocking load-bearing walls. What you don’t realize
is in the second bedroom behind the wall lives a
community of 300 feral cats. They’ve been squatting
there for years spending their days chasing butterflies
and hosting piss parties. Normally, you would
smell the ammonia, but all the dust swirling
around has triggered your allergies and
you’re all stuffed up. After six hours, your
lungs are full of ammonia. Breathe in, breathe
out, projectile vomit. You just got sick
from cat urine. Let’s say you don’t own
300 cats, you just have one and she’s a good girl. But like any good girl,
she loves bad boys. One night, you go to bed. You’re sound asleep
when your cat opens your bedroom door. You taught her how, you thought it would be a fun party trick for when you ran out of things
to say to your mother-in-law. But now your cat’s
using it to let in 299 of the naughtiest feline
pals and they’re ally toughs. They kill mice just to see
the life leave their eyes. Still, you should
be able to wake up before the
ammonia takes effect, except you’re a mouth breather. Never got your deviated
septum taken care of because you
don’t trust doctors. I get it, all the
good ones live online. So you inhale exclusively
from your mouth which takes in 12 times
more air than your nostril. And what you breathe in
is 300 cats worth of piss. You greet the morning
with a technicolor yawn because you just got
sick from cat urine. Let’s say your cat
has no friends. She’s a loner. You adopted her from a shelter. She would never betray
you, but her body could because unbeknownst to
you, she has the world’s largest cat bladder. When you took her to the
vet to get her fixed, he accidentally gave her
a bladder augmentation, which is a surgical
procedure that can increase a person’s bladder
storage by 30%. Now her bladder can hold a
giant humans worth of piss and she lets it all
go over your lap. You don’t have time
to change clothes before you’re blowin’ chunks. Because you just got
sick from cat urine. Let’s say you have no
cats, you’re a dog person. And your dog knows
to go in the yard. He loves being in the
yard playing fetch, rolling in the leaves,
leaves you should’ve been raking all season. But you spent your weekends
watching internet videos. No judgment, you’re
the reason I exist. And now these leaves have spent
the entire fall collecting neighborhood cat urine. So when your dog
comes in and shakes a season’s worth of cat piss
all over your living room, the words wait don’t
barely leave your mouth before you cover your
couch in upchuck. ‘Cause you just got
sick from cat urine. Let’s say you have
no pets, hate pets. They bring in too much dirt
and you’re a germophobe. You spend your evenings
scrubbing with the strongest cleaner you can find, ammonia. Which is also the main
ingredient in cat urine. You have been cleaning
your kitchen with cat piss. Let’s say you’re a clean person but you don’t obsess about it. In fact, you’re a
pretty chill dude. The only thing that gets
you riled up is puzzles, and you just got invited
to an escape room, the theme is laboratory, but
you got the address wrong. You show up to an
actual laboratory. They’re doin’ some
real shady testing. Let’s just say all the
beakers are full of cat urine. The lab tech screams
at you to get out, but you think it’s
just a theater nerd really getting into character. You keep saying I’m not
leaving until I solve this. Panicked, he hits the Abort
button hidden under his desk. The entire laboratory shakes,
beakers break all around you. They cover you in thousands
of gallons of cat piss. This is a room you’re
not gonna escape because no human has ever
been this sick from cat urine. So yes, you can get
sick from cat urine. It’s just a matter
of when and how. I’m expert Natasha
Vaynblat and I believe that all cats are girls
and all dogs are boys. (casual relaxing music)
