Aren't you nice! I've heard the bitter apple spray is really good for
keeping cats away. I mean, if they stay away from it, I'd guess
that's okay. Do read the article- I was really surprised by it. I had
no clue that cats were *so* different from humans. Just illustrates
the point that essential oils are POTENT CHEMICALS you know? I think
sometimes people just aren't aware of the that.
My Marley has gotten pretty good about not eating things that he
shouldn't.. of course, the time he decided to snack on the
artificials did leave me wondering about his mental state!!
