Tips for Using Cedarcide Original On Cats: While Cedarcide Original is non-toxic and cat-safe, on rare occasions smaller cats and kittens have found the natural cedar scent of Cedarcide Original too strong for their liking. For this reason, we recommend testing for sensitivity with a light initial application. For more info on cedar oil and cats, click here.
