I'm wondering if it is safe for cats since it contains tea tree and Chaz says tea tree is poisonous for cats.

Thanks in advance

I would not use it on a cat because of the tea tree oil. I don't think there is very much in it, but I wouldn't take a chance.

Me either. I have used the people CCs on my kitties though.

NO

Please, please, never use anything on cats that does not specifically say it is made for cats.

Even products that say they are for other animals, like dogs, can kill cats. Cats are self cleaning and lick themselves. If they get into a situation where they need help, water only or a product that says for cats.

ETA You have to be careful, even if an item says it's ok for cats. Make sure the item does not contain any kind of essential oils.

I don't think you can. I don't have any pets but I think Chaz said no to that one presentation.

Because see I'm very skeptical about getting it at all. I've read the description and it says ""cats"" but because I read the ingredient list I just don't feel safe using it on my kitties Smiley Sad

I want to stress this. Please, everyone, err on the side of extreme caution when using any products on cats (or giving cats access to them).

Good girl. Always read the ingredients.

I know someone who used a dog shampoo on their cat and the cat did not survive

Is there a reason you feel like you want to use a product on your cat?

Cats are like ovens...self-cleaning.
