double dose of Prime safe for feline consumption?

My kitty got into my stash of aquarium equipment today and along with dumping, but not eating half of my supply of flakes he drank a quart of dechlorinated water with a double dose of Prime for high out of the faucet ammonia levels. He has a sensitive stomach do you think he'll be okay or will he throw it all up? He throws up every time he eats fish food and I cant change kibble brands because his stomach throws a hissy fit. Lol. Anybody know of cat-proof water and food storage containers, has to be desktop, nothing too big or ugly?

Your fish live in Prime all the time he'll probably be fine.

I asked the same question, more or less, my cats almost prefer dechlored water. It's fine.

Ditto to screw on lids!

My dogs drink out of the sumps all the time. They are fine. There is not a double dose of Prime in the tank water, more like a quarter dose or less, based on the last water change. This may not be relevantsince cats and dogs do not always have similar reactions, and the dose is so much lower.

If the cat were drinking it right out of the container, I would worry. But not diluted as you describe.
