Chlorine Gas Effects

There were three main types of poisonous gas used in trench warfare: chlorine, phosgene and mustard gas. Although it could kill, chlorine gas was easy to detect. Mustard gas was first used by the Germans in 1917 and it was incredibly effective. Although it wasn't as fatal as phosgene, mustard gas could linger over the battlefields and cause horrific burns. Phosgene however was a lot more powerful and it was difficult to detect - this became the main killing gas of WWI.

German medic wearing an early-WWI gas mask. The first “masks” to protect against the deadly gasses, such as chlorine, were nothing more than dampened cloth over the nose & mouth. It was believed that dampening the cloth with concentrated urine was more effective than water. GROSS!

I didn't know there were gas masks for dogs. War really sucks. From the First World War we have Stubby, the highest decorated dog in the history of the United States.

Creative Cat Litter Box Tips

Use hot soapy water and a toilet brush to scrub out the litter box. Rinse and dry thoroughly before refilling. Letting it air dry in the sun can help with odors. NEVER use chlorine bleach to clean a litterbox. Urine turns into ammonia, and mixing chlorine and ammonia results in toxic chlorine gas, not good for you or kitty. Don't try to deodorize it with citrus oil cleaners or vinegar. Both citrus and vinegar are effective cat-repellants
